Exciting & Educational Weekend

Hi! How was everyone's weekend? Mine was educational and exciting!!

I learned what an "ice house" is. A week ago I would've told you it was an igloo. But after this weekend, I know an "ice house" is a type of bar in Texas. The type that is somewhat redneck, and usually named after one, like "Willy" or "Dick". (I'd like to take this opportunity to apologize to all my readers named Willy and Dick.) 
 Aren't my friends cute? This is at Willie's Ice House.

Sunday at the grocery store, the deli line was so long that you had to get a ticket to hold your place in line. I received  ticket #69! Ha! I tried to be grown-up about it, but since I have the following pictures, I'm pretty sure I failed.                                                   

Yep, I'm mature.
 Overall - great weekend! How was yours?


  1. Years ago before the laws changed you could drive through the ice houses here in texas and they'd load your trunk up with liquor for you. After they changed the laws (I think in the late 90's) they just added a bunch of tables and chairs and turned them into the ice houses we have today.

  2. There are still a few drive-thru liquor stores in Houston. One of them is on Richmond Avenue near Fondren, if I recall.


  3. Hilarious! I've never heard of an "ice house" . . . till now. I'm saying hi from Mingle Monday!

  4. What a fun weekend! I've never heard of an 'ice house' either. And to be honest, anytime I see that number I have to snicker as well!
    Hope you have a great week :) xo

  5. Stopping by from Mingle Monday! Cute blog! Glad you had a great weekend!

  6. Here from Mingle Monday! Had no idea about an Ice House, and I would have giggled with pulling that number too.
