Quite possibly the coolest thing that could ever happen to a blogger & since this is the longest title ever, why not make it longer?

As you've all figured out by now, the Houston Livestock Show & Rodeo is in full force, which means yours truly is there almost every night. In saying this, I was there this past Saturday to see good ol' Billy Carrington. Saturday was probably one of the most crowded its been since I've been there this year.

Amongst the hustle and bustle of it all, I was going down an escalator when all of a sudden I hear a girl going up the up escalator pointing and yelling something at me. I typically don't do well with being yelled at in the middle of a crowd but after I figured out why she was what I would consider harassing me, I was more than okay with the situation.

I turn over my left shoulder as she was getting further and further away I hear a faint "Hey! I read your blog!"

You what?!!

I read your blog!!

OH!!! {pointing my finger at myself} You read my blog?!

Ya! A Beautiful Mess, right?!


So ya! Turns out one of my followers just so happened to be in the 50,000+ crowd at the Houston Livestock Show and Rodeo and recognized me!! If it weren't for the fact that I desperately needed an adult beverage or the fact that by the time I got to the bottom she was long lost, it would have been completely okay to chase her back up the other escalator to actually meet her!!

SERIOUSLY?!?! What are the odds?!

This was by far one of the most legit things that has happened to me lately! Let's be honest...ya I like to blog so that my family and friends can keep up with me but c'mon now...I blog because of my followers and that fact that y'all even consider clicking on my link! I actually never thought anyone would be interested in anything that little ol' me has to say so to the sister that was yellin' for me...please let me know who you are!!

...and since I don't like posts without's a pic of what Mickey & Minnie sent us back in response to our wedding invitation! (Refer to this post...)

  1. So awesome you've got a response :)



  2. Wow somebody recognised you, that is quite impressive! I'm new to this blogging malarky and didn't realise how dedicated some followers are... You must write some really nice stuff to be appreciated and spotted out in a crowd! I will start reading regularly as it seems you have a high list of followers...
    Also lovely to see that Minnie & Mickey sent you a card, we went Disney in America for my Mum and Dad's honeymoon we got my Dad a ball and chain to walk round with and they had the wedding Mickey & Minnie hats : )

  3. Why didn't I invite Mickey and Minnie to my wedding? Gah! Love that you got a response back--too cute.

    I've never been recognized by my blog. Sads.

  4. LOVE that you got recognized -- yay you! what a great feeling that must have been!

  5. I love that Mickey & Minnie sent back a response! :) So cute. Also, love that you were recognized! That's so exciting!

  6. That was me!!! LOL! I really couldn't believe that I saw you.My brain went into like CIA Facial Recognition mode! My husband said,"Lord Tonya,she probably thinks you are lunatic!" I might not have yelled at you, buuuut "I'm pretty good at drinking beer"(or not) sooooo blame it on the Miller Lite. :) A friend of mine Brynn "Being Brynn," blogs, and she sent me the link to your blog. I got hooked reading all about your wedding plan updates. I myself was planning a wedding at the time I started,a lot of the things you blog, I can relate to! I love your health tips, and all the extra stuff you throw in. When work sucks you really brighten my day! So, thank you for sharing...

  7. I am so jealous that they responded to your invite! Maybe they will invite you for a weekend at Disney!

  8. OMG. I love your blog. My name's Anna, I'm a stylist and visual merchandiser in LA. I'm 23 years old and moved to California after graduating back in south with a degree in visual merchandiser. I've worked with such designers as Max Azria, Nicole Richie, and my idol Rachel Zoe. I'd love if you visited my new blog for multiple posts a day on all things fashion. I'd love the support. I'm following you, I hope you'll do the same. Thanks so much.
