When we went to the store they had this car out front to promote the Nascar Race 🙂 At the Bristol Speedway. My Husband Tony is a huge Nascar Fan. Also a huge 24 Jeff Gordon Fan!!!
We were there early (to early for me) like 7:00am. And it was a night race. Well I did tell you Tony was a huge Nascar Fan. It was awesome the first time we had been. The place was huge. I worked for Mercedes-Benz of Walnut Creek California at this time and the owner of the trace is the owner of Mercedes-Benz of Walnut Creek. O. Bruton Smith.
And what was so cool is that Jeff Gordon’s Car was right down in front of us!!! See it?
Here is an even better picture with the #24 car. Man it was so hot there. Now again I’m from California so we have beautiful summers out here we get some hot days but its more dry heat here. I thought it was very muggy there but I guess compared to other places it’s not that bad. But when you are from California its bad 🙂
Just a picture of the stands. Empty for now because it is so early 🙂 But as the day went on it became full 🙂
This is our view from where we were setting. We had an awesome time. I’m so glad I went. But the next year I did not go it was just to hot for me. But of course Tony went 🙂 He went 5 years in a row 🙂
The stands look a little fuller. And the Sun is going down. Getting ready for the Big Race!!
Gentlemen start your engines!!!! Here we go 🙂
Thank you so much for reading my blog I hope you enjoyed it 🙂

If you have never been to Dollywood it is something you should do. I live in California. My Mom and Dad were living in Tenn. My Brother Scott with his wife Krystal and daughter Bethany Still live in Tenn. So we would go visit every year. On our visits we would go to the Smoky Mountains, Sevierville and Gatlinburg. Oh yes Dollywood is right there in the middle of it all. I love the live shows. You don’t see that much any more. So much awesome talent! Here is the Blue Grass show. It’s a mini concert. Loved it!!
This show was my second favorite. All the country songs from the singers from Tenn. It is awesome. They do an awesome job. The singing is all live. They put on an awesome show. They can sing!!!
This guy was really good 🙂
Just more pictures of the show 🙂
Now for the food 🙂 that southern food is so awesome 🙂 this is some kind of pork. It smelled out of this world!!
Now this is my favorite show. The Kingdom heirs. They are Gospel singers. They are awesome!!! After the show you can meet and talk to them. They sell CD’s and they will autograph them for you, take pictures with you 🙂 Had an awesome time!
Thank you so much for taking the time to read my blog. You are all so awesome 🙂

I took this from the bus we were headed to the blow-hole.
There is My Sweetie and our friends. We are on our was to the blow-hole.
There it is!
The water is starting to blow out of the hole here.
Here is comes. I did not get a great picture. I missed the good one ;( But it was so cool!
When we were done at the blow-hole we went to the flea market on our way back to the bus.
This is the flea market.
We got back to the ship and headed to dinner 😉
This is what Tony ordered lol it was just a little to raw for him.
Hope you enjoy
This was our room number. It was like a little motel.
When we got to our room our luggage was on the bed. We just had to unpack and enjoy ourselves 😉
This is the shower half of the bathroom. It was a good size bathroom.
Haha and this would be the other half of the bathroom lol.
Our bed it was very nice and relaxing. Again I loved the port-holes.
The closet and desk/dresser.
Just another picture of the bed/port-hole.
After we checked out our room we took ourselves on a tour of the ship. That is San Diego from up high.
Tony and I during our tour.
The same entertainers just on the other side.
Tony and I on formal night getting ready to get our pictures done and go to dinner 😉
Brittany and Faith ready for pictures and Dinner. I think they looked very beautiful 😉
Here we are at dinner. We got the table to ourselves.
Our waiter made this for us out of the table napkin lol.
I have one more post to do on this cruise it will be about the blow-hole.
Thank you for taking the time to read my blog
After we entered the ship we had to get our room keys, And get every one in a room to be put on file with the clerk. You can also leave a credit card number and tell them to let you know when you have reach $50.00 or $100.00 or no limit if that is how you like it 😉 or you can leave cash @ the desk and if you do not spend it all the last day you will get a check under the door of your room with the remainder that you did not spend.
This is like a high line Hotel that I have never stayed in before. It was so beautiful. Loved the glass elevator. This is the Main Lobby there is a bar with a White Piano. Here is where you buy a sticker for your card if you want soft drinks they are not free. But if you pay for a 4 day cruise I think it was $26.00 you can get all the soft drinks and juices you want all day and all night. There is coffee, tea, and lemonade all the time and in the morning for breakfast they will serve juice free.
These are the halls to get to the dining rooms, The Spa, Gym, any where fun! And also the last couple days of the cruise their halls are filled with pictures of ( you ). Well of all the guest. They would like you to buy the picture. Its fun looking for yours and your friends pictures.
This is a buffet dining room. Tony and I liked it of course it was our daughters name Tiffany. We thought it was really cool. I could not be leave it! It was way cool. They had an Italian buffet, a Chinese buffet, a sandwich bar, and Pizza bar The Pizza served all day til late at night. Oh yes and a Dessert bar, Salad and fruit bar. It was so awesome oh yes and we did not have to pay to eat. That was all apart of the package. If you pay months ahead then its like a free vacation. It just seemed So unreal. I wish so bad I had taken more pictures of the dining rooms.
The glass elevator in the lobby at night it’s all lit up with Christmas light you can see them.
Here we are looking down at the lobby. Someone is playing the piano now. It was so beautiful!!
Beautiful! On picture night they use the stairs it’s really cool.
One more picture of the lobby from way up high.
Thank you for taking the time out to read my blog.

We are on our Southwest Flight headed to our cruise ship in San Diego Ca. I was a little nervous I did not know what to expect. I’m not a swimmer so that’s why I was so nervous. Just the thought of being shipwrecked and not being able to swim to try to save myself just plain scared me. But I heard so many good things about cruises and I was excited 😉 It was Tony, Brittany and I along with Rick, Angie and Faith also Mitch and his wife Kristy our very good friends. When we landed in San Diego we were met my the Mills family Mike, Kate, Alicia and Mikayla. Also our very good friends.
This is the Motorhome our friends the Mills picked us up in and it was packed with 12 people and all their luggage.
Our ride from the airport to the cruise ship 😉
Oh my goodness (OMG) There she is! The Elation she was so beautiful and huge 😉 I was getting so excited a hotel on the water.
Tony and I with the ship behind us we were so excited it was something new we had never done before.
Here we were waiting to go inside the gate to get our luggage checked in. We did not want to drag it around with us. Because our rooms where not ready yet. And we wanted to check out the ship and eat 😉
Here is Tony boarding the ship with a big grin on his face ;D and I’m right behind him ;D
Stay tuned for (Part 2) of our first cruise 😉
