Car Show!!!

We just went to the annual ‘Cavalcade of Customs’ car show in a nearby city.  It was a lot of fun.  We usually go every year, but this year was extra fun for all of us, I think.  First of all, because we have a little boy who really loves trucks and cars! Secondly, we went in a small group this year (me, my husband, our little boy, mother in law and young nephew) on the opening night, which was MUCH less crowded.  It makes a difference, believe me!  I took some pictures of the cars I thought were pretty neat.  Of course, my judgement is COMPLETELY dependent on the looks of a car.  My husbands opinion is based much more on what’s under the hood, looks are secondary.  But, I had the camera.  🙂  So, here’s to our night on the town!  Enjoy the pictures!

The Piano Guys

This is a pretty awesome video! I hope you can watch it.  I never knew a piano could be used in such unique ways to make music.  I think the members of my family who read this blog will especially appreciate this video, as we appreciate music in general.  Enjoy! (I know I did).

Lyrical Inspiration

This song by Rhett Walker Band has just been amazing to me the last month or so.  Sometimes a song will just catch your attention and mean something special to you.  Well, that’s what this song is for me.  When I looked it up and watched the video today, I was even more touched.  Hope you enjoy! Please let me know what you think.  I’d love to hear from you.

Redneck Tug of War

Having a down day?  Just watch this and have a laugh.  Laughter is good for the soul and it’s nice to find it in these times of trouble.  I was cleaning out my email today and I found this video that my dad had sent me earlier this year.  I watched it again about three times and I laugh out loud EVERY time.  It’s too bad that it’s the Chevy that falls apart and not the Ford!  Enjoy.

Day 14: Book Review

“My Life Next Door” by Huntley Fitzpatrick

I grabbed this book the other day when browsing through the library.  It’s a young adult book and I have to say that I really did enjoy reading it.
“This is a story of young/first love between two teens (Samantha and Jase) that grew up next door to each other, yet never really knowing one another.  Jase is a Garrett, and is from a big family with a messy yard and fun times. Samantha, on the other hand, lives with her often absent mom (who’s a senator) and sister.  Her mother deeply disapproves of the Garrett’s and their way of life and they live such different lives that Samantha has never even talked to any of the Garretts since they moved in seven years ago. That is, until one night when the handsome, caring Jase suddenly befriends Samantha.  She becomes entwined in his world yet he is not really part of hers (not by his choice).  They fall deeper in love each day until the unthinkable happens and Samantha has to decide which family she is going to support and stand behind.

Note: There is some language and drug use by one of the characters in the book but it ends positively showing the dangers of addiction.  There are also some heated scenes between the two lovebirds.  I really enjoyed this book though.  So, there it is…my review.

Day 3: Favorite Place to Eat

Ok, I’m not a world traveler and I’m pretty low maintenance so this isn’t some fancy restaurant or anything.  Just a forewarning.  However, it’s not McDonalds.  But, If I got to pick where to go on a special evening in town, it would be Cracker Barrel. I think it is a fun restaurant with a nice, down home feeling to it.

Doing a little research for this post, I found that Cracker Barrel has over 600 stores in 42 states.  Cracker Barrel started from one man who wanted to create a place that made him feel at home, that reminded him of his mothers home cooking. His mission was always “pleasing people” and I think that the growth of his company from September 19, 1969 (opening day of the original Cracker Barrel) to the current day proves that he was on to something.  This entrepreneur has been obviously successful!

So, that is my favorite place to eat…affordable, yummy, variety, good atmosphere, fun!

What is your favorite spot to chow down?  I would love to know….
