I hope that everyone had a wonderful Valentines with their sweetheart!
This weekend was a very exciting for me as well as eventful and enlightening. My very best friend that I call “sis” (because we are sisters, but not by blood), and I set up a Valentines booth down town this weekend next to another friend that makes and sells Kettle Corn. Below are a few pictures.
These pictures were from Saturday, that is “sis” in the first picture. We didn’t have too much stuff because we didn’t really know how well things would sell. “Sis” did pretty well with her flower arrangements and I did alright, but most of all we had fun.
The one thing that made my day was I got to chat with this gentleman about his Dodge Hellcat just like the one below only his had the black stripes down the side just like the 1972 version. He even let me sit in the car to get a feel for it, but he kept the keys in his pocket, LOL!
I had a 2007 Dodge Charger and loved it, but the Hellcat has been my dream car since they came out and I watched a segment Jay Leno did about the Hellcat.
When he started up the car it just purred with this powerful rumble that shook the ground and makes you tingle all over, now if that doesn’t get your heart pumping! The whale of the engine as he took off just about popped the eardrums like at the NASCAR raceway in the pits. I love the fact that this car is stock with all the power and speed you would expect and more, from a muscle car. I got these following pictures off the internet because I was so excited I forgot to take pictures of his car, the one I actually got to sit in!

Alright enough about cars and back to our Valentines booth. It was a beautiful day except it was a bit windy, but the sun was out so it was nice and warm. My husband got to see a lot of old friends and one of his cousins as they all came to buy Kettle Corn, some even came over to our booth afterwards. So all in all it was a great day!
Now Sunday we were out there again and did a little better in sales but we lost about four balloons because of the wind. Once again Nate was out there making and selling his Kettle Corn right next to us and we all had a great time.
Sundays highlight was, one of my husbands old friends he hadn’t seen in many years came by with his car. Pictures are below.
He restored this car himself and does this for a living. He is going to be showing this car and another one at The Arizona Super Show Feb. 25, 2017 in Glendale at the University of Phoenix Stadium. I would love to go but I have a card class that day, so if you are into car shows and by chance attend this one or any other shows in your area send me some pictures I would love to see them and possibly post them on a future blog.
Below is a picture of Lalo the owner of the car and Nate our Kettle Corn guy! My husband has known these two guys since they were all kids, so he had a great time catching up and spending time with them.
Well, that was my weekend and I had a blast! Tell me about your weekend by leaving a comment below I would love to hear what you did and what your highlights were this weekend.
Have a great rest of the week!
