derby snob alert!

I have something to admit..... I'm a derby snob.  Oooooh my lanta.  Who would've thought?!  It's scary for me to think that Eric's hometown has had that much influence on me :)  But let me explain.
Saturday night as soon as I got back into town, Eric and I met up with my cousins (who are also amazzzing friends!  I love it when family means that much more to us!)  for dinner and a demolition derby.  Since we missed the 4th of July derby I was super excited for this!  Honestly, I get quite the adrenaline rush when the cars rev up and go at each other :) haha!  But this derby only had 3 rounds!  Seriously?  The derby I'm used to has 10-15 rounds of crazy small-town red-necks that put on the best show ever.  You can count on a roll over or two, some cars starting on fire, and a fist fight every now and again.  Haha!  Oooh the things that entertain us ;)  Needless to say, this snob was just not too impressed with the derby.  At least we got to spend a beautiful night with some of our favorite people in the world!

Mark my words people, someday I will be competing in the powder puff round of the derby, and you will all be invited ;)

Okay, first and foremost, look at how long and beautiful your hair is- wow! Secondly, I love that a sweet and beautiful lady like you loves the destructive, dangerous derby haha! Way to throw us for a loop! Looks like you had a lot of fun, despite its lacking in rounds. :)

Haha this is hilarious! I don't know if it is the same thing or how much different but my husband and I went to a Monster Truck Rally with a bunch of friends in Salt Lake a year or so ago and it was pretty fun! I also had a boyfriend in high school who took me to Motocross events lol. FUN stuff girl! :)
