Back from the Nascar Race...





Just got back from the Nascar race at Michigan International Speedway in Brooklyn, Michigan. Had a great time, too bad the race didn't end the way I had hoped. I was really pulling for the #99 car Carl Edwards but he did finish 3rd so I can't complain!! Looking forward to going back there in August for another race :)

My new fav book...



This is my new favourite book or I guess series, I couldn't put it down...I have finished the first one, now I am waiting for the second one. My husband and I watched the movie last night and I am actually disappointed with it. If you didn't read the book first you wouldn't understand what is going on in the movie and they left out some important parts...I think anyway....
So here I wait for the second book....
