Roping Up Some Christmas Spirit

Knott’s Merry Farm is in full swing at Knott’s Berry Farm, and over the weekend a group of my gal pals (plus Patrick) and I went to enjoy all of the sights and shows. I’ve wanted a steer head jacket for years now, but they aren’t exactly a dime a dozen. The first one I […]

Fall Dapper Day

Dapper Day, the twice annually event that both well dressed folks and Disney lovers look forward to every year, was last weekend. Last fall Dapper Day I wore a western ensemble with slacks, and I enjoyed that so much I decided to go with a similar outfit, and as the weather was quite cool, Patrick […]

These Boots Were Made for Walkin’

Last weekend Knott’s Berry Farm’s interactive guest experience Ghost Town Alive came to a close. The summer event was like a three month long, family friendly version of Westworld, and I enjoyed getting super dressed up for visits. I originally had much grander outfits planned for visiting during the last couple of days, but humidity […]

Cowgirl in Black

Before I get to the body of this post, I need to say a few things. For the last few days, I have had difficulty functioning. The current happenings in the United States are deplorable, disgusting, and heartbreaking. As of late, I feel as if my blog is very shallow and of little importance. Especially […]

Jackalope Jamboree

Some of you may already know of my love of the mythical creature the jackalope, so it was no surprise when Erstwilder released a jackalope brooch I just had to get my hands on one! Now unlike so many of my vintage loving friends, I’m actually not the biggest fan of Erstwilder’s stuff, as I […]

Western Party at Paper Moon

Well, it’s been awhile, hasn’t it? I got laid up with a really wretched cold right after Dapper Day, and only recently have I began to feel normal. And thank goodness, because Paper Moon was hosted their Full Moon party last night, and it was western themed! Paper Moon is hands down one of the […]

Mad for Boysenberry!

For Easter Sunday, Patrick and I returned to Knott’s Berry Farm to enjoy the sights, sounds, and treats of Boysenberry Festival again. I also finally finished my boysenberry parasol! During Boysenberry Festival I had the absolute pleasure of meeting J. Eric Lynxwiler, one of the authors of Knott’s Preserved, an amazing book about the history […]

Birthday Cowgirl

It’s my birthday! And what a proper day to share what I did to celebrate my birthday! So even though my birthday is today, Dapper Day is this weekend, and I knew most of my friends would be attending that, I also wanted to do a get-together at Knott’s Berry Farm, which is exactly what […]

And Knott’s puts together some wild and crazy things for guests to eat during the festival, including boysenberry pizza, which was new for this year! There is also loads […]

Knott’s Auction

Late last week, Knott’s Berry Farm auctioned off a wide array of items that once dotted the famed amusement park. From paintings to coin-op amusements to animatronics to even a covered wagon, fans of Knott’s could view the items prior to the auction, then try their luck at bidding in the live auction. We attended […]

Corriganville

Over the weekend Patrick and I visited Corriganville Park, the former location of Corriganville, an amusement park of sorts from 1949 to 1965. Corriganville was built by movie and TV actor Ray Bernard, but better known as Crash Corrigan. After going on a hunting trip in Simi Valley with fellow actor, Clark Gable, in 1935, […]

There’s a Snake in my Boot!

Over the weekend some friends, Patrick, and myself went to the California Science Center as the museum was having an exhibit about the science behind Pixar animation. As lovers of all things Disney, we were excited to further understand what goes into making some of our favorite films. It also gave us a swell chance […]

Orange Empire Railway Museum

Recently Patrick and I went to the Orange Empire Railway Museum in Perris (about an hour and a half east of Los Angeles) with a couple of friends for a day filled with not just train history, but a glimpse into the history of Los Angeles transit, as well as added bits of Disney history! […]

Westworld

Being the fan of westerns that I am, I was immediately taken in by the new HBO incarnation of Westworld. Even though I enjoyed the original 1973 film, it wasn’t without its flaws, which is why I was open to a new take on it, and I can say the show did not let me down, and […]

Goodbye, 2016!

And HELLO, 2017! I’ll spare you reflections on 2016, and thoughts on 2017, because it’s all rather convoluted, and really not what this blog is about, so instead share with y’all what I wore for New Year’s Eve! This year we opted to go to Knott’s Berry Farm for their New Year’s Eve celebrations, and it was […]

Christmas Eve at Knott’s

For Christmas Eve this year, Patrick and I spent the day at Knott’s Berry Farm. I bought two Christmas themed string ties at Joyride (the menswear counterpart to my favorite vintage clothing store, Elsewhere Vintage) recently, and I’ll admit the other one is way cooler than this one, but I just couldn’t create the perfect […]

Knott’s Merry Farm

During the holiday season Knott’s Berry Farm transforms into Knott’s Merry Farm with spectacular shows lights, and even a tree lighting. I was very eager to visit Knott’s for the holiday season as just a few weeks prior to kicking off the holidays they announced that some familiar faces from Ghost Town Alive (read more […]

Dapper Cowgirl

With so many Halloween festivities, fall Dapper Day (an unofficial day at the Disneyland Resort when Guests are encouraged to “step out in style” for a day at the park) really snuck up on me and I honestly felt like I had nothing to wear. But when I noticed the temperatures were going to be on […]

Yeehaw for Calico!

Patrick and I just returned from our trip to Portland. I had hoped to blog while away, however I ran into a few hiccups, so now I’m blogging on events much later than I prefer, but better late than never! So before I dive into our travels, or other recent happenings, I must share two […]

Ghost Town Alive!

Is there ever something you keep meaning to blog about, but you just keep never getting around to it until it’s almost too late? That has been happening to me all summer with Knott’s Berry Farm‘s Ghost Town 75th anniversary celebration. Yes, 75 years ago, Walter Knott created his Ghost Town, using a combination of […]

A Return to the Autry

A few years ago during a visit to California we took time to visit the Autry Museum of the American West. I was slightly crushed over the fact I didn’t blog about it, which was for a combination of reasons. First, it was very overwhelming! There is so much stuff at the Autry, and my […]

Knott’s Boysenberry Festival

For the last two weeks Knott’s Berry Farm has been celebrating its annual Boysenberry Festival. As a fan of all things boysenberry, I had to go! The list of unique boysenberry dishes was quite long, and it actually took two visits for us to eat all that we wanted to. But the fun didn’t end with […]

Dolly and Dotty

Recently I was contacted by the UK based, retro influenced clothing company Dolly and Dotty to see if I was interested in test driving one of their items for review. For the most part Dolly and Dotty’s website is full of the classic retro staples, with fitted dresses, swing dresses, pencil skirts and striped tops, […]

Happy Trails to You

Gosh, I haven’t blogged since the New Year!? That’s crazy! Well, for good reason. Like mentioned before, Patrick and I caught colds in December, and have been battling them since, including New Years. And after recovering, my dad came down from Oregon to visit for a week, hence all of this non-blogging! But onwards! Sunday […]

As I mentioned back in September, Big Thunder Ranch Barbecue will be closing its fences in January as the Disneyland Resort prepares to make way for its new Star Wars themed land, and Patrick and I are attempting to visit quite a few times before that day rolls around. With the holidays in full swing, Big Thunder […]

Christmastime is Here

Disneyland isn’t the only theme park celebrating the holidays this season, Universal Studios and Knott’s Berry Farm also get into the holiday spirit, and over the weekend we popped over to Knott’s as they were offering a promotion where if you bought your 2016 season pass, you received one day in 2015 for free, and […]

Big Thunder Ranch Barbecue

Fall is officially in swing at the Disneyland Resort, and while Main Street USA may be lined with adorable pumpkins, one of my favorite areas of Disneyland during fall is Frontierland and the Big Thunder Ranch area. Sadly, this year will be the last autumn for Big Thunder Ranch, which includes the Big Thunder Ranch […]

Round-Up Time!

On Sunday many of my fellow vintage and Disney loving friends got together under the theme of western wear! I couldn’t have been more excited! It was truly a fun day of getting together, riding rides and even getting to know new people with similar interests. Per usual, we got constant questions throughout the day, […]

Hey everyone! Lil’ something different up in the blog today (aka no pictures of my mug – go ahead, breathe a sigh of relief! Especially after I forced y’all to stare at a bikini-clad me the other day hahaha). Instead of a finished object, let’s have some inspiration.
