Celebrating Women for the Real World

Ho-down in H-town

It was that time again!  We kicked off the Houston Livestock Show & Rodeo with the cook off.  Last year, it was hot and muggy; in contrast, this year we froze our butt’s off!

Yes friends, it was cold but we did our best to stay warm.  I think the purpose of the cookoff is to eat and drink yourself silly.  Here are some pictures of the fun:

It was great seeing Nichole and Fran again, it had been quite a long time since we had seen them. Here Nichole is trying to catch up on the drinking with everyone (not really, Kat had to make a pit stop and had Nichole hold her drink).

Here we have Jen and Kat. We hadn’t seen Jen since last year’s cook off so it was great to see her again. Kat really did loosen up as the evening progressed.

Sheri’s daughter J and her boyfriend.

We all had a great time, Sheri’s boss and his wife always make me feel like I’m part of the family too…..good times. However, by the time we left I think the temp had dropped in the 30’s and of course we didn’t bring a coat or jacket. It took a while to defrost.
