As all of you who are regulars here on my Blog know, my precious friend Sandy Navarro came to visit (from the LA California area) & attend the Gilded Life Art Event with me (if you are new please here scroll down & see the 2 previous posts to learn about this AMAZING event). Sandy’s favorite word is FabUlous(this is how Sandy always spells it) & if you visit her blog (click on her name above for the link) you will hear her theme song Fabulous being sung. The photo above shows you Sandy in her NORMAL look. Gorgeous red hair all fixed & never one hair dares to misbehave (it’s a WHOLE ORDEAL each morning let me assure you), beautiful clothes & jewelry. But, while she was here for the week she did “Let Her Hair Down” for some major fun & got a little Texas Casual
.Since we live close to Fort Worth we HAD to take her to the Stock Yards. Everyone knows that the folks on the West Coast have a tendency to eat a bit healthier (I have many California friends that are vegetarians) & consider us Texans (& those of the Midwest) to be rather barbaric with all of our MEAT eating. Well, let me assure you Miss Sandy is NOT vegetarian & held her own in the MEAT department. We took her to Cooper’s Pit Bar BQ where you choose your MEAT right there in the pit. It’s point & choose! It’s where pork chops, steaks, prime rib, to name a few are between 1 & 2 INCHES thick. you can click on any photo to enlarge it to see details better if you’d like.
Cooper’s is located right across the street from the famous Texas Honky Tonk… Billy Bob Texas (No, we didn’t go there). After eating we were back down in the Stock Yard Area which is a wonderful fun filled Historic Area full of Neon Lights, Shops, Restaurants & Bars. Again… MEAT is a focus here.
When Sandy first got here & we were talking about our up coming trip to Round Top Antique Fair in Spring of 2011, Sandy said to me “Now I saw pictures of girls in western stuff but, I’M NOT A WESTERN KINDA GIRL”. Can you say EAT THOSE WORDS?
I got words like…
“Wellllllllll that shirt & belt are sooooooooooooo my colors”. And I also heard “Now those paten leather boots, I could wear those”! OK, shall I break it to her now that in the cow fields of Round Top these are probably NOT what she will be choosing for attire? Nahhhhhhhhh let’s let her dream Texas Style. Next stop H3 a famous “Watering Hole”.
Yep! That’s Sandy in JEANS (see I told you she let her hair down) sitting in the bar on the saddle bar stools.
And sooooooooooooo.. With the night lights of Fort Worth winking at us we headed for home because these girls had more things to see & do the very next day!!!!!
Hope you’ll come back soon to see what else we did. And go by to visit Sandy to see her post about her Texas adventures. Hope you are having a wonderful week filled with Fabulous cool weather & beautiful fall colors.
