Weekend things – chilling at the Car Show

Hello, hello!

Happy Monday!



You’re probably wondering why this isn’t a “what went down in my kitchen” post, aren’t you?

Well, I didn’t really food prep yesterday – I cupcake prepped.

I made 4 dozen cupcakes (2 varieties) yesterday and am frosting them today. I’ll tell you all about them tomorrow!

They are a “thank you” to the guys who’ve been out here helping us with the transition to our new case management system.  They’ve really worked hard to help us out and definitely deserve a sweet sendoff. 🙂

Besides, that was all I had the energy for. There may or may not have been copious amounts of wine on Saturday night. #dontjudgeme #thankgoodnesstherearentanypictures

Anyway, before the wine on Saturday, we went to the Virginia Hot Rod & Custom Car Show/barbecue competition.

The weather was kinda grey and overcast and that kept the crowds at bay, which was nice. It did rain a little for about 5 minutes but we were under a tent eating our barbecue so we weren’t bothered by it. 🙂

We’re still going through the photos of the barbecue side but I’ve got some good photos to share of the cars!

There were a bunch of classic cars, hot rods, drag racers, and motorcycles. Thing 2 found her perfect car – a Challenger. I told her to keep dreaming.


Why didn’t anyone make bicycles like this when I was growing up?!


Gotta love a sense of humor. 🙂

I didn’t know the Tow Mater was going to be there! I totally would have brought my nephew.



It looks awesome but I can’t imagine it’s comfortable to ride. And, I’ll be honest, it wasn’t until MUCH later when I was looking at my pictures, that I realized it was a bicycle.


I don’t even remember what kind of car this was but I just thought the colored connectors were so cool!


We also enjoyed some live entertainment.  The Blues Brothers jokes were lame, to say the least, but the band was pretty awesome. It was fun though. 🙂


Talk to me: Do you enjoy car shows? Do you prefer the classics or the hot rods?
