On the road again...

On the road again:)....for some reason that song is being sung in my head...hmmm...interesting just because I'm not a fan of that song...but you know...those are always the ones that stick:)

...to the point now.

I'm home...

I'm tired...

I'm happy...

I'm inspired...

I'm so very thankful!

AND my rear hurts from sitting so long...I'd use {a*#} but then you may find out by chance that I occassionaly have a foul mouth....so occassionally is a funny word...those that know are probably smiling now.

BACK to the point now...

I was on the road again...today coming home from an inspired evening which just right now I will tell you...I'm renaming it to an inspiring weekend;)

BUT...since I was on the road 6 hours there and 5 hours back...I'd thought I would share some fun things I learned on my road trip...

ten.  Caffeine is a must...even before you ENTER the car...whether it is coffee...soda...green tea...whatever your choice make it a good one...this time I mainly resorted to COFFEE...since it was so stinking cold!

nine. STILL cannot get used to cruise control...I'm a control freak and every road trip I have ever done I try to use it for the convenience...but I don't even last 2 minutes...it freaks me out!

eight. ...my shoes of choice for the road trip down were these really comfy shorter heals...not dressy heals...but you know it was a girls weekend...and you feel better and less tired if you are in clothes that make you feel good...{hubby doesn't quite agree or understand that he told me}....BUT I will share one thing...it's okay to make the choice to look good and feel good while doing things like driving...

seven. GREAT music helps a TON...actually it IS the most important thing to have on a road trip in my opinion...and whatever volume you choose it just doesn't matter when you are the ONLY one in the car...for all you know I could have been rocking to 80's music!

six. carepackages are nice to receive when you start out on a roadtrip...like some green tea when the coffee is done {or soda on the way home} and good road food are nice because if you are like me...when I am by myself traveling...I don't stop for food because I DON'T like to do drive-thru's...it's not that I don't eat that food because I do...I just don't like to order...pretty ridiculous I know!

five. I think I would like to have a bigger bladder because my holds NOTHIN'...or maybe it is just because I drink too much liquid...hmm...

four. There are some FABULOUS barns along on way...and homes...and land...I actually loved that better than miles of STUFF {I mean crud} you know.

three. GPS sometimes STINKS! So it seemed I got looped around the long way there and stuck in some traffic so hence the 6 hours there and 5 hours home...and being where I went on Friday night and where I left Sunday morning was two different places on the same road...the route to leave was nothing like when I arrived...and soooo much better...

two.  U-turns are pretty fun...I was doing some directions from memory since I had to rotate charging my phone and the GPS since I left the chargers in the car the night before:0)...good thing it was a good spot to do it...I didn't quite share that one with anyone yet...because I get lectured since I am one that waits to get gas until my light is on...I guess that is a not so good thing to do...but you know...it's been okay for me so far:)
YEP...that's me as I stopped to do the U-turn:)

one. I liked doing the driving...hubby never lets me because he likes to be "the man" driving and you know that if I the woman was driving it wouldn't make him THE MAN you know!...but I felt completely less tired driving than riding passenger side...

So I realize this isn't exactly what you wanted to hear about for the inspiring weekend...but I need some more time to explain my weekend...and if you notice...next post is a big one {number wise}...I'm so thrilled so stay tuned...and I promise some pictures are coming of the inspiring evening...

If you want a sneak peak...head on over to Kasey's blog for a picture taken before we left this morning I wish I would have thought to have done that last night when we were all not tired and dark circles you know:)...sigh...
