I would have to say that Autumn is mine! Nothing better than the color changing leaves, bonfires, football games and jeans and sweatshirts!

Now it's your turn! I thought this would be a great way to get to know my readers and for my readers to know a little more about me!

Back from Tennessee!

Well I am back in blogger land! We got back home from Tennessee around 1am last night! It was a long 14 hour car ride pulling the camper through the mountains. We had a blast. It was hot and humid but so beautiful. It is so flat up here in Michigan!! Both races were awesome. My driver Kasey Kahne did not do to well, it seems he never does when I go to a race! I will blogging more about our trip and posting tons of pictures over at my family blog A Day in Our Life..... soon if you want to check it out!

I was given a Ford Mustang T shirt, mayo, tons of samples of Tums, can coolers, die cast cars, Sobe Life water, stickers, goody Headache Powder and much more. Plus you get tons of free stuff to drink and eat while your there. Gotta love the freebies!

One last thing. It was fun to drive in other parts of the country and see all the stores, restaurants and grocery stores that I see others talk about. The Nationwide Race was sponsored by Food City! I saw several down in Tennessee, we don't have them in Michigan.

Now it is catch up time. I have lots of posts coming up, along with laundry and cleaning out the camper! Yippee!
