you might be a redneck if..

welcome to the life of melia. i may or may not hang out with rednecks. ill let you decide..

shawn got his truck stuck in mud.
we probably visit, cal ranch, cabelas, IFA and watts once a day.
we pretty much drive around looking like this.
our jackets might blend in with the trees behind us and the truck.
we name our trucks redneck thunder, or cowboy cadillac. and enjoy every second of it
we ride fake deer like they are horses.
we wax this truck every day
we might draw nascar numbers on our hands
our pumpkins are carved with the number of our favorite nascar driver.
we may dress up like this at cabelas
i might wear cowboy boots with shorts. its okay.
we go four wheeling.
we might dress up like hunters on halloween and go trick or treating when were 16
we spend hours at walkers and then throw our drinks in the back of this truck
we came home to a car lot in our front yard.
called "critter auto sales"
we might go out west and ride japanese dirt bikes
we do have deer horns hanging from the trucker radio
the mud sled. what a treat.
welcome to critter auto sales. we came home to these
trucks in our yard. thanks wattie and jayden.
we talk to other people through the trucker radio
i might be a nascar fan.
 
 
 
 
the redneck life is the life for me!

ha ha.

Hope this makes you laugh like I did.


our nations capital

i just took a trip to washington dc with my family and gramma. it was a blast except for it was super hot and humid. if you ever go there dont even worry about putting on make up or doing your hair beucase the make up will melt right off your face and your hair will go flat and wavy. anyways i got to go in mr. presidents house, it was quite a treat. i even got to knock on the presidents front door. how cool! i went to the capital building which was awesome and i saw just about every memorial you could think of. i saw george washingtons tomb i also took a tour through george washingtons house. i saw where abe lincoln was shot at the theatre. i also saw...

arlington cemetary
lincoln memorial
WWII memorial
korean war memorial
washington monument
thomas jefferson memorial
fords theatre
library of congress
national archives
all of the smithsonian museums
union station
the senate building
mt vernon

just to name a few... i had such a fun time and i loved the site seeing. washington dc is VERY crowded and everyone has road rage. it was the first time i had ever been in a taxi. it was super hot and miserable outside but it was a good time.
the white house was probably the coolest. the security there was insaine. police everywhere- they
lined the streets surrounding the white house. i got to see the secret service and i got to walk around inside the white house. people there were so up-tight. i could only imagine why.
here are a few pictures of my trip
washington monument
george washingtons tomb
president obama sat in this chair
abe lincoln
WWII memorial
center of washington dc. in the basement of the capitol building
the booth where abe lincoln was shot

national assoiation for stock car auto racing

NASCAR!!!
yep nascar. people have different hobbies like dancing, singing, sports and what not. my hobby is nascar. people look at me and think "a girl like that is into nascar? no way."
your all wrong. i am a nascar fan. in fact, i own plenty of nascar stuff to proove it.
a nascar blanket
nascar shirt
nascar hoodie
2 hot wheels nascar cars
a sign that says "dale jr fan parking only, all violators will be towed"
a nascar sticker for the back of my phone
a collectors nascar watch.

soon to be added to my collection:
a pink dale jr hat
nascar pajama shorts

i also get nascar illustrated. I'm sure your thinking to yourself, "there is such a thing?" yes, i assure there is. now everyone thinks nascar is such a redneck hill billy gathering with people that have no teeth and live in trailers. NOT TRUE! i have all of my teeth, i live in a normal house and im getting an education. i know most people hate nascar and the only thing they can say about it is "nascar is so boring, alls they do is drive around in circles." that is the exact same thing i hear from every single person. lets be original. ive heard that same sentence at least 5000 times. people also say nascar isnt a sport, i beg to differ. people call motorcycle racing a sport and they drive around a track too. it might not be a perfect circle (nascars tracks arnt perfect circles either) but they still go around the same track over and over again. so why is it so different if they are driving cars and not motorcycles? nascar is a sport just like any other type of motor racing is a sport.

everyone asks me why i like nascar so much, and i have to blame my good friend josh for getting me hooked. back in the day (not so long ago) id go to josh's house with a bunch of other friends and we would all sit around the little tv with our walkers drinks in hand and watch the race. i actually hated nascar at first, i thought it was so boring. but once i started following a driver i was addicted. no one understands why i like it and im not sure i understand either but i love it. i love yelling at the tv and i love when there is a huge crash. its hard to explain the cool feeling you get when you see a stranger wearing the number of your favorite driver. sometimes when the race starts i get chills down my spine. I've never been to an actual race but i want to go so bad. ill either go to Vegas raceway in the near future or for my senior trip ill go to Charlotte North Carolina or Richmond Virginia. ive been watching nascar for a whole year now. every weekend i cant wait for that 4 hours of pure adrenaline to come on that tv. trust me, there is a whole lot more going on than just driving in circles. how about you try and change 4 tires in less than 13 seconds?

last year at school i did a report on nascar for english. the paper only had to be 4 pages long double spaced. mine was 12 pages with no double space. nascar is more than just a hobby to me, its a passion and i love every second of it. i used to be so clueless about nascar, i thought that there was nothing to it but driving. after a year ive learned every rule in the book and i promise you there is alot more to the sport than just driving a car. nascar actually has rules, funny huh? anyways i love nascar and maybe you should watch it this weekend and see what im talkin about!

MY FAVORITE DRIVERS
dale earnhardt jr, hes my favorite driver.
#88. i pretty much love him.

kasey kahne. hes my 2nd favorite driver.
and hes super cute. #9

mark martin, hes the oldest driver in nascar right now.
hes such a sweetheart. #5

DRIVERS I DONT LIKE

 jimmie johnson. your so cocky and take the fun
out of every race. fun sucker.

the busch brothers, kyle and kurt. i just dont like them.
they seriously get into fist fights like little boys on the field.

juan pablo montoya. rude and thinks hes all that.
when really he isnt that great.

DALE JRS CAR


i love nascar.
and dale jr.

alien abductions

so ill be honest, im the biggest baby you will ever meet. im scared of a lot of things like....
chainsaws
the witch from snow white
being home alone
the dark
being kidnapped
being murdered

maybe you can guess, but i dont do well with scary movies. of course i watch them anyways. so last night cason decided that it would be a good idea to watch the fourth kind. (i dont recomend it.) thanks to this horrible movie, i can now add alien abductions to my list of things im scared of. that movie was really disturbing and i didnt fall asleep until 3 in the morning. i dont plan on watching that movie ever again.

creepy.

number uno.

I am such a creep... I have been stalking peoples blogs for months now and I finally decided it was time to get my own. I honestly dont have a clue what im doing but ill give it a shot. Now, i know my profile isnt all cute like everyone elses but I promise ill change it as soon as I figure it out.
So this past weekend I was up to a whole lot of nothing. On saturday I went to an owlz game with Cason and his family. After the game they had fireworks, it was quite the show. Nothing like when the Pleasant Grove fireworks came shooting at the crowd but it was still fun. The best part of all was Dale Jr's NASCAR car sittin out front of the stadium. I literally screamed. Let me just tell you now, im a huge NASCAR fan. I ran right up to that car and gave it a hug.

me and cason at the owlz game.



thats my boy Dale's car.
