Can’t Take My Eyes Off These Blogs #9-Brothel Edition

My daughter and I at the brothel

I’m sure everyone has been waiting on pins and needles for my weekly roundup, which is a day late. The family spent the weekend in Moab, UT in a cabin at one of the campgrounds. When we arrived, we noticed that the cabins were named after establishments in an old west town, like the saloon, blacksmith, sheriff, etc. Driving up to our cabin, we were quite thrilled to see that we were staying in the “Brothel.” I’ve giggled all weekend. Can’t wait to go to work on Monday and have someone ask what we did this weekend. “We stayed at the brothel!” The fun never ends.

Eyes on the Dollar was mentioned in quite a few places this week. Thanks for reading and sharing.

  1. Thanks a lot for including me Kim. Must say I have never stayed in a brothel before. 🙂

  2. Thanks for the mention! Never had that pleasure (no pun intended) either!

  3. Your daughter looks a little young to be going to a brothel, Kim! Sounds like you guys had a great time in UT! Enjoy the rest of your Sunday.

  4. Thanks for mentioning my post!

  5. That’s too funny! Can’t say that I’ve ever stayed at a brothel before. Much more exxciting than our pumpkin fun this weekend. Thanks for the mention!

  6. As soon as I saw the title of this post in my reader, I was like, ‘hmmmm…what is she going to say about Brothels…’. Haha, you definitely peaked my interest.

    I hope you had a good time in the brothel and thanks for mentioning my post!

  7. As long as you didn’t call it a “working vacation” all is well.
