2010 Reflections and 2011 Expectations


I always find it interesting to go through my posts and reflect on the year because I either realize that I wrote really great posts, really crappy posts, or just didn't blog much at all.  I was quiet this year here at A Cowboy's Wife because of all that I had going on everywhere else and on My Wooden Spoon.  Even so, I did manage to find a few … [Read more...]

A Look Back at My Wooden Spoon’s 2008 Journey


This blog has come a really long ways and I am so proud of it.  I've worked really hard on improving things with the content, readership, and photos.  2008 has been a great ride and I can't wait to see what 2009 has in store! JANUARY Flour Tortillas Pumpkin Cake with Cream Cheese Icing Pineapple Upside Down Cake FEBRUARY Bacon Wrapped … [Read more...]

Ta-Da! Makeover Magic


The girls at the Oak St. Salon did a heck of job in my opinion! My hair dresser Kim felt so bad when she cut my hair but she shouldn't have. See, I told her to cut it off, of course after the pressure of everyone saying cut it off;) Anyways, it was after the cut when I broke down. It was so short and it was what I asked for but it was hard for … [Read more...]

Men at Work

Cowboys easing cattle after herding.

Well, the works here have come and gone and I didn't get hardly any pictures at all.  The weather was horrible and there was always something going on that seem to be at the same time as the brandings.  I decided to pick out a few of my favorites and share those with ya.  I edited all of these, well, because they needed it.  Luckily I didn't have … [Read more...]

A Beautiful Evening

I don't have a tripod so my sunset is a bit blurry but still worth looking at.  There was no wind yesterday evening and it's was warm.  I could have sat there all night, in fact, had I had some camping gear I might have slept outside all night.  I've been having some back problems the last few days so I haven't got out to take any pics.  I thought … [Read more...]

Unique in Their Own Way

Just a random post today.  I've got some house cleaning to do and won't be on the computer much today.  I thought I'd post a photo of each of my loves.  They are all tired and filthy but still cute.  They all are so unique and it's always interesting to see what they're gonna say or do next. Da' Man is drinking a beer after a long day at work.  … [Read more...]

I’m Baaaack

Hey YA'LL!  I hope everyone had a wonderful weekend:)  We had a good time this weekend.  We went to see some friends and just hangout.  Of course, I was around skinny girls as usual so I better get back to takin' my Hydroxycut.  Here's a shout out to the folks that were so kind to have us over, feed us, and give such a warm inviting atmosphere!  … [Read more...]

Elmer is Da Man

You know, Elmer really is a beautiful horse.  He's huge with a golden mane and tail and he really is a 'Gentle Giant'.  Our friends we're here this weekend and when she called him this, I knew it was the perfect nickname.  … [Read more...]


There will be no rambling roundup today.  I've got too much on my plate right now and frankly, I just don't have time to go around and find interesting posts.  Sorry.  My standmixer contest is over finally.  While I'm thankful for all the entries, links, and votes...I'm glad to not have to deal with that many comments.  I believe the total was … [Read more...]

Halter Breakin’ Colts

As I've mentioned before, my husband brought home 2 colts.  They need halter breaking, which is where Tyler comes in.  They're just yearlings and have never been touched and sure enough haven't had anything put on them before.  For those who have no clue what halter breakin' is....it's basically getting the horse used to having a rope … [Read more...]

Follow the Leader

One of the things my husband did on his way to Colorado was pick a colt for his brother from his brother...get it?   What I didn't know is that he would come home with 2 colts!  Yep, he went and bought one on his little visit.  They're cute little boogers ain't they.  Because they wouldn't go into the pens on their own,  my son saddled up and led … [Read more...]

What’s Wrong with this Picture?

Ummm, if I'm not mistaken, I thought horses were faster than goats?  I really didn't expect to see the horses running in for feed time with a goat leading the way...lol.  He looks kinda cute out there being the leader though. Just in case you're having a hard time spotting him, he's brown and white and right in from of all the horses.   I guess he … [Read more...]

Random Photos 2

I'm feeling random again.  I've got a ton of things to do and no time for blogging right now.  Here's a few random pics of mi familia:) y mas. My middle son Toby. Nose picker....ewww. My man and my little guy on a cute donkey that belongs to my sister-in-law. … [Read more...]

New Year’s Eve Pictures

Baby Calves Everywhere

The calves are hitting the ground.  We've got quite a few right now..they're so cute when they're little:)  This one was born today...he still has some wet spots. Don't wanna leave momma. "I ain't been kissin' nobody!" And then they grow up.... … [Read more...]

Random Photos 1

I'm feeling random tonight and not sure what to post about at the moment so I guess I'll show you some random photos:)  Remember when I had the "Guess the Mountain Contest"?  Well, I took a picture of the same mountain but with my new camera.  I don't think it's a good picture by any means but it is much clearer.  You can see a bit more detail … [Read more...]

Hungry Hungry Hippos Cows

In my opinion, Winter is the most miserable time of year for a cowboy.  They have to go around breaking ice and feeding.  I HATE feeding.  It's extremely boring and makes me sleepy.  I know, I know...poor cows gotta eat, right?  The only thing I am looking forward to this feed season, is Truett getting to go along every now and then.  It gives me a … [Read more...]

I wonder if they can see me?

That is what's on Elmer's mind right now.  I think he's trying to hide in hopes of sneaking in through the gate:)  Elmer is beautiful horse and he's quite large compared to the other horses.  You should see his shoe size.  I'll have to take a picture of a normal horseshoe and his horseshoe so you can see the difference.  Oh, he's hiding … [Read more...]

Bashful Cowboy

I had hec getting a picture of my man today.  He kept turning away everytime I tried to snap one of him.  He's actually very shy when it comes to pictures, which is the complete opposite of his older sibling.  He was actually walking off in this one and I said, "Hey, where ya headed?".  He turned to answer and SNAP! I got it:)  It looked fine in … [Read more...]
