This past weekend my sisters were in town visiting and so we of course hit a bunch of bars and tore up the roads in between.  One of the bars was Bar X which is downtown and one that Becca had to drag me to a year back because I remembered it as the hole-in-the-wall where scary types hung out….

I don’t know why we did that but I’m sure it had something to do with Salt Lake City and the small amount of kicks you can get when you can’t drive somewhere and have real fun.

Bella was very upset that she wasn’t sly enough to get her target but not as upset as I was that Bella is trickier than she first appears.
