This Saturday at the Newport

I’m very excited to announce that Cacti will be appearing with Antaean at their CD Release show tonight at The Newport Music Hall. Check out their promo here. Of course, I’m going to be traveling, but I will be there in spirit. Cacti has three fantastic MCs (Russ, Chad and my personal favorite…Drew) and one awesome drummer, Doug. Drew is especially excited for this show because he gets to play four instruments and is finishing the set playing the drums with Doug.


Today I’m flying to Richland, WA to visit a few of my favorite customers. Even though I’m sad to miss Drew’s show, I’m happy that I’m spending my time with people that I love. Last night Emily and I had a few of our friends over for a little get together. We drank wine (too much) and spent some time catching up on each other’s lives.  I made Drew’s mom’s secret dip recipe. It’s sooooo yummy and it was a big hit. I’m going to let you in on the secret since it’s too good not to share.

Real Yummy Dip

Brown sausage (any kind…tonight I’m trying turkey sausage to cut down on fat…ssshhh! Don’t tell the boys)

Add a can of Rotel Tomatoes

Add two blocks of Cream Cheese (again I use the 1/3 less fat)

Soften the cream cheese. Throw browned sausage, Rotel and cream cheese in a crock pot to heat. Enjoy with chips or crackers! YUMMY!!!Thanks to JoLynn for introducing me to this great new app!

Also, stay tuned to my site next week…I have exciting news that is almost official to share!!! In reality, it’s already very official, but the debut wouldn’t be complete without photos…so you have to wait!

Knock ’em out tonight Cacti! I can’t wait to purchase tickets when you are the headliners at The Newport!
