I had the opportunity to visit our Cowboy Shop in Carmel, we stopped in Paso Robles and ate at this awesome deli. They had the yummiest potato salad, it wasn't like the traditional potato salad I make. Here is a recipe that is quite similar for you to try for your Memorial Day cook out.
3 lbs new red potatoes
1 cup mayonnaise
3/4 cup sour cream
2 Tablespoons dried dill weed
4 green onions, chopped
salt & ground black pepper to taste
Place potatoes in a large pot and cover with water. Bring to a boil over high heat, then turn heat to medium-low and cook until tender but still firm, about 15 minutes. Drain, cool in an ice water bath until cold, about 5 minutes. Leaving skins on cut into bite-sized pieces, and place in a large mixing bowl.
Combine mayonnaise, sour cream, dill weed & green onions in a bowl and stir until blended. Season with salt & pepper to taste. Pour mayo mixture over potatoes and toss coat evenly. Adjust seasoning if necessary. Cover and refrigerate at least 2 hours or overnight.
I found this great recipe on allrecipes.com, in fact I find a lot of my best recipes on this site :)

The bold pop of color on the black & grey zebra as well as the plain black t-shirts really make a statement. Both shirts feature coordinating rhinestone accents giving them a little sparkle.

When that happens, I look to other blogs for inspiration. Sometimes I find a post or picture that gets my creativity flowing again. Sometimes I make observations such as a few of the blogs on my favorites are featuring wordless posts, with amazing pictures that just tell the story for themselves. That inspires me to take more pictures that tell the story rather than me having to paint a picture.
I enjoy reading about the thoughts and happenings of people all around the country. I am pretty lucky to be able to blog as part of my job, I get so inspired by the amazing stories that people tell. I can only hope that this blog can once in a while inspire you in some little way.

EHV can affect the respiratory, reproductive and nervous systems of the horse, causing a wide variety of diseases. EHV is spread by direct contact from horse to horse. The neurologic damage that this virus cause is detrimental. The weakness and paralysis of the muscles of the hind limbs gives rise to incoordination, gait abnormalities, and in some cases, the inability to rise from the sitting position.
I found a article written by the Utah State University Extension that gave some good advice on prevention measures to limit the exposure and spread of the EHV virus
1. Do not share tack
2. Clean and disinfect your horse trailer after transporting horses other than your own
3. Proper food, water and shelter to minimize stress
4. Isolate new additions to your herd for a minimum of 30 days
5. Contact your veterinarian immediately should your horse exhibit any neurologic signs
6. Make sure your horse is annually vaccinated for other causes of neurologic disease (e.g. EEE/WEE, Tetanus, WNV and EPM if endimic in your area)
We certianly hope that this outbreak is contained and passes without incident. We look forward to seeing everyone at the July event.

This cami would pair well with denim shorts, boot cut or skinny jeans, as well as a denim mini. A fun silver or chunky black and red necklace would also be a great addition to this top. Click on the pictures to check out this great top on our website.

Of course then that brings me to what do I know about being a cowgirl? I've always said that aside from the boots, there is not much western about me. However, I am learning. I get to work with some fantastic cowgirls and I get to meet some pretty amazing cowgirls in the store.
So what have I learned? I've learned a cowgirl is just as much an attitude as it is a way of life. A cowgirl is confident, independent, smart, focused, driven, hardworking and she knows what she wants as well as how to acquire it. A cowgirl knows who she is and where she is going. She appreciates beauty both in herself and her surroundings. A cowgirl is fun, loving, dedicated and is a friend for life.
The more I learn and the more people that I have the pleasure to get to know, the more I am greatful for the opportunities that being part of the Burns Team has brought into my life. I look forward to adapting The Cowgirl Way into my life.
