New Party Name: "Cowgirl Up" is now "The Scoop"

Big, big announcement today!! 
Amanda has retired from blogging (insert sad face here.)  But we have completely revamped this rockin' party (insert happy face here).  We decided to roll out a free new look for Cowgirl Up, and in the end decided to change the name of the party. 

I want to introduce you to our new, revamped party 
T H E     S C O O P !

What do you think? It's more modern, clean and fresh.  Here's our new banner.  It's the same party, but with a new look and a new host.

As you can see we have added a new face, well technically 2 to our team.   

Kelli and Kristi LollyJane

Kristi and Kelli are twin sisters who live in Arizona. Kristi is the older of the twins by 5 minutes. She recently moved to Northern AZ, 3 hours away from Kelli in Gilbert. Kristi pays attention to detail and can accessorize a room with few things on hand. 

Kelli is a stay-at-home mom to her 4 kids. Her favorite tools are the miter saw, brad nailer, drill and level. She loves to build furniture and paint! Her number one advice to DIY’ers is that paint is the easiest and most affordable change you can make to a room. Kelli can paint an entire room in less than a day, if armed with Diet Coke and Pandora. She is a painting rockstar! Kell’s motto: If you hate it, repaint it!

I hope you get a chance to check out their blog LollyJane.   Now, it's time to meet our guest host, then I'll be back to bring you the features. 

Now I'm turning the party over to our guest host this week, Laura from Top This, Top That!!!

I am so excited to be guest hosting with the girls today, but honestly it got me thinking
Hmmmm.... What's the real reason I am here?
I wonder if the girls heard that I lived in Texas for several years and that's why they wanted me to be a guest host?
Or could it be that I loved going to the Houston Livestock Rodeo and couldn't wait to put my boots and hat on for the greatest show around? 
Or maybe its my love of all things George Strait since I was born ?

But I am thinking the real reason might be that I live in the middle of the country (just not in Texas), on a dirt road surrounded by ponies, donkeys, cows, dogs, cats, fish and enough wildlife that they start to become friendly and read your blog everyday!  In fact the coyotes are probably reading about my breakfast room right now here

And the white tail deer are reading about my home office here

But whatever the reason, I am thrilled to be with you today and hope you will visit me at Top This Top That where I can show you around- Georgia Peach style!  Many thanks to AmandaAnitaLinsey and Samantha for letting me hangout today.
It's Anita from Cedar Hill Ranch, I'm back now. Thanks so much Laura for guest hosting for us this week!!!  I'm also so excited about the addition of Kristi and Kelli to our party.
