Look What Facebook Started

It all started with a simple Facebook post:

"I think I need cowboy boots, hat & belt buckle for next year's rodeo"


And my Uncle went to work. He told me he collected belt buckles. I had no idea! He offered me a belt buckle for next year. I was kind of excited. My very own belt buckle!


Last week I got a package. It was from Maryland. I knew it was from my Uncle! I opened it up and found these really cool belt buckles. They are for the boys. The buckles are incredible! I love the color.


I love the designs. I love the animals. Both the boys loved them. Instantly Baby wanted the Eagle and I was a little worried Middle Child would want it too. But he wanted the Armadillo. I shouldn't be surprised, he would be more apt to like the unusual animal; for example, hippos are his favorite animal.


My Uncle told me the belt buckle I picked out was big. And he was right! It's over 5 inches long. And it is so intricately detailed.


I love all the swirls etched into the silver backing. I love the gold Steer head and horns. I love long-horned steers. There's a few south of town that I gawk at every time I head to the quilt store. It's the second best part of going to the quilt store.


But I digress. I love my belt buckles! I can hardly wait for the next rodeo. I may have to wear it to the demolition derby next week. Just to practice wearing cowboy clothes. I've never been to a Demolition Derby so I don't know the proper fashion etiquette. I clueless as to whether Cowboy clothes are worn like they are to the rodeo. But it is Spanish Fork. I could wear it to church and no one would notice.

He does rock! Those are so cool! You are going to be a bonified cowgirl next year! I've got a great pair of boots, but no buckle.
