Rock Springs and a Bedroom

Yesterday Brian and I headed north of Phoenix
to Rock Springs Cafe and Saloon
in Black Canyon City.

Brian used to do security for a band years ago
and a couple of the band members
have been playing in the saloon there.

We love getting together with this crowd.
We dance and wear ourselves out.
If you're in the Phoenix area,
Rock Springs Cafe is a great place to visit.
They are known statewide for their amazing pies.
Like this strawberry rhubarb pie.
It's such a fun little place to visit.
I may or may not have washed these salt and vinegar crickets down
with a shot of Cuervo Gold.

I do not drink alcohol.
But after the crickets I really felt the need to sterilize my mouth.
Funny the things I will do on a bet.
They were crunchy and tasted like potato chips.
Except the legs get stuck between your teeth.
If potato chips had legs, it would be exactly the same.

I am just about finished with the guest room
just in time for my sister Kelly's arrival in a couple of weeks.
The headboard was a thrift store find.
I was happy with the nightstands that I purchased from
Target Clearance for $35 a piece.
I love the lamps (also from Target).
That picture on the nightstand is
of Kelly and I in our bikinis
at a motel pool.
I love how we are holding hands.

I'm getting a massage on Monday.
Much needed and very overdue.

Have a Happy Sunday!!

One of my sons ate meal worms (live) on purpose once. All three of them are a little buggy anyway! Glad to hear you had fun.

a saloon that sells pie, now thats my kind of place for sure!!
You are a brave woman to eat crickets, you didn't by any chance have a strong desire to rub your legs together and hop on the way home did you?
Your guest room is so cozy, the pic of you too together is just the right touch.
Your hubby looks like he could be a great security guy,, big and strong but from what you've told us he's a softee too.
Enjoy your massage, I have never had one ,

There's no end to your madness--crickets and cuervo...The bedroom is adorable. Love the lamps.

I am so happy to know you have a beautiful guest room available for the next time I run away from home. I will bring the sour cream and onion crickets

The guest room is so pretty....maybe I'll come down and take advantage of it!!

Ok, crickets and Tequila? I gotta see that!

I'm now going to attempt to read the word verification. Wish me luck.
(I think it's 'and tableag') whatever THAT is!

Love the pic of you and your sister...I spotted it right away. Too adorable!
