Rad Racer, Here I Come....

Things around here have been nuts. I turned 30 this past weekend. For my birthday, my darling husband got me a Richard Petty Driving Experience.

For those unfamiliar, the experience means I go to a race track, probably Lowe's Motor Speedway because it's close, and take a class on how to drive the cars and safety instructions. Then I'm unleashed for 8 timed laps driving a race car around the track. The student with the best time wins! My family even gets to go and watch... To my mother's relief. She's not as happy as me about this gift. :o)

I had joked some time ago that I would be REALLY GOOD at this. And hubby thought it was time I made good on that boast. And to be honest, I'm REALLY excited! This definately ranks in the top 3 best B-day presents ever.

How about you? What's your most favorite present ever?

What a great gift idea! Have fun!! And I hope your 30s are as great as mine were. I loved my 30s. It was sad to wave them goodbye in January, but everyone keeps telling me my 40s will be even better.

Welcome to the thirties!

And that is a fun gift. Can't wait to hear how it goes!

Honestly, I can't recall what my favorite present has been. We stopped exchanging a few years ago as an excuse to buy ourselves "big" joint gifts.

That's such an awesome gift! Hope you have a great time :o)

I honestly don't have much luck with birthdays. I think though for my 30th in a couple years I might just take myself to Vegas :)
