It's the most wonderful time of the year!

First off, I hope you all had a happy and safe Thanksgiving dinner with your friends and family from wherever you are in the world. Unfortunately, I had to spend my Thanksgiving working a double shift but I was surprised by a warm Thanksgiving meal from my eye doctor and my boss which I'm very thankful for. Somehow I got very lucky and was given black Friday off. So, as a reward to myself I drove down to Billings in Montana and did a little bit of shopping at the mall. Let me tell you.. I waited till noon the next day to check out the Black Friday sales and the mall was like a ghost town. There was barely anyone in the mall, and I walked right up to the checkout. I'd say I had a successful black Friday shopping spree :)

Second, It's the most important time of the year. It IS almost National Finals Rodeo time in Viva Las Vegas! THIS Thursday (Dec. 3RD, 2015) The National Finals Rodeo kicks off in the bright lights of sin city. The NFR in Las Vegas is every Rodeo Cowboy and Cowgirls dream to make every year. BUT - only the top 15 in the world get the golden ticket to Vegas.

Third, not only do the rodeo cowboys and cowgirls get to shine in Vegas.. It is also the Miss Rodeo America pageant that JUST started today. All the Miss Rodeo Queen's have to go through a series ofinterviews, horse rides, clothing designs and so much more. with that being said, at the end of this week we will have a NEW Miss Rodeo America Crowned!! Good luck to all the ladies entered in the pageant <3

Fifth, You can always find NFR information on RodeoChat. We are also working on making the NFR MEDIA #1 Twitter list again this year. Wish us luck!

Set goals. Work Hard. Dream Big
