Ya know what they say…”careful what you wish for, you just might get it”.
Well, unless you know who “they” are, and you think they’re doling out mind-blowing advice on the regular, I’m telling you, you don’t have to listen to them.
I’d like to say I dream as big as the sky, but the truth is, my dreams don’t stop at the sky.

Wanna meet a Rockstar? Go to the show. Wanna be a Rockstar? You better start singing or playing something other than your favorite air guitar. Those are certainly not  guarantees that either of those things will happen for you, but even I’m smart enough to know that it’s 100% not going to happen if you’re sitting on your couch when the bus leaves the station. That’s a figure of speech. This has nothing to do with buses at all.

I did not meet Eddie Van Halen OR Sammy Hagar, two of my bucket list dreams, by pure chance. All the stars had to align perfectly, and someone had to start lining them up in that order. That someone was me.
And, as long as the stars don’t literally fall from the sky before Monday, October, 15, 2018, I’ll get to check Bethenny Frankel off that same bucket list. Not because she knows I’m a big fan and has decided to get in her Skinnygirl Bronco and head over here for margaritas, but because I’m gonna hop my happy ass in my car and drive the four hours to the next Skinnygirl Jeans launch. Bingo! It’s the little details.
Every dream needs a director. Who’s directing yours?
Enjoy, Barrelassers

Great Balls of Fire!🔥


erry Lee Lewis! Live in concert! December 10, 2018, Nashville, TN.
My little (Barrelassin’) momma has had me all over his appearance schedule for a few years now and unfortunately for her I could never find a date or event that worked for us. Also unfortunately for her, I started slacking a little on the hunt, but she didn’t let that deter her. She actually found this one on her own! Not only does the date work, but it’s only a three-hour drive from home.
She’s brought it up to us several times and has waited patiently for us to make some sort of move in her favor. Today, we finally had to pull the trigger and get her tickets for Christmas and go ahead and let her know before she ended up getting them herself.

Pictured is an old photo from back in the day when she was able to meet him. How did she manage that? you wonder. She simply walked to his dressing room door, knocked on it and asked for a photo. She’s definitely where I get my “great balls of fire” from!
Remember, if you never ask, the answer is always no.

It’s so hard being a girl. Do you think anyone that night knew that my husband had to search half of Las Vegas for duct tape to tape me into that dress? Or that I couldn’t lean forward at all or something very Vegas would’ve happened? How about the fact that momma carried her shoes to this spot for the photo, and then carried them to our seats. We both carried our shoes back out and we were SO grateful that the elevator to our room was directly across from this spot!

All of my memories this week are from Las Vegas and fun! I swear my boobs aren’t that great, nor are they this size. But when you squeeze them into a tight dress and duck them to stay, it apparently creates huge boob syndrome. And this show was fan freaking tastic!


We ate, we drank, we partied. For the record, you can, too, easily. I bought a Groupon for Vince Neil’s, Tatuados restaurant/bar online. It included two steak dinners, one bottle of wine, and a piece of cheesecake to share. Can you get a better steak dinner and a better bottle of wine? Obviously. But not for the super cheap price I paid for it, which was somewhere around $20 give or take. Besides, I doubt very seriously you’re visiting this place for the food. The memorabilia and atmosphere for Motley Crue fans is the key reason you’d be here, so even if you don’t buy the Groupon, you can stop by for a drink or just look around. In fact, this was my first trip to Las Vegas, and I’ve been back twice since then and went back to this place both again while there. 


MOB DAY IN VEGAS? YES, PLEASE! I gotta tell ya, when we go on vacation we really go hard. We had five days to spend in Las Vegas and we were not about to miss certain places, and the Mob Museum was one of those places. It’s very interesting with lots of information. I won’t bother posting all the pics of the exhibits, but you can look it up and check it out yourself next time you’re in Sin City!


Just a short two, maybe two and a half hour drive from Las Vegas, NV. I highly recommend dedicating a day trip to the Grand Canyon West Rim if you’re that close.

More than that, if the weather permits I’d highly recommend making the drive in a convertible. We didn’t even know we wanted a convertible until we went to pick up our rental van and it wasn’t ready. They asked us if we’d be willing to take the new Mustang convertible. Let me think about that for one second…I’m kidding. I didn’t have to think about that at all. It was July and the weather was beautiful. I couldn’t think of a better way to drive to the Grand Canyon from Las Vegas through the beautiful scenery!
This was mine and my husband’s first trip to Las Vegas and the Grand Canyon. My little momma had driven across the country twice many, many years ago, before I was born and taken in all the sites along the way.

The Hualapai Ranch is an Indian Reservation on the West Rim of the canyon. Everything is made up to look like an old western town. This is also where the famous skywalk is. We didn’t do the skywalk- it does cost extra money on top of the small fee to enter the ranch, but there’s also a barbeque restaurant, activities for kids, and a public restroom.

You can ride the shuttle from point to point (included in the cost) to see the different views.

Enjoy, Barrelassers 😉
