Here I am... A Blogger

This has been a really long time in coming.. So here I go.  I love reading blogs, I spend way too much of my time reading blogs..  But it's my outlet.  I also love writing, sort of, I think?  Okay, maybe I'm still undecided about that "love writing" part.  Anyway, love it or not it's going to happen.  Part of the hesitation in starting is that I'm not sure what I want my angle to be..  Doesn't every blog need an "angle" ?  There are so many "Mommy bloggers" and I certainly fit into that category!  So maybe I'll just share some of what I love and learn from others and a little of what I love and learn on my own.  You may or may not be wondering how I decided on a name for this blog..  So, as a self proclaimed lover of movies and most things Disney and as the mother of a few little "Cars" loving boys all time favorite movie quote comes from the Disney/Pixar Movie "Cars"..  Probably because like it or not... sometimes I feel like Lightning McQueen when he first arrived in Radiator Springs and is trying to get out  "Help me I'm in Hillbilly Hell.....  " If you haven't seen the movie recently (I watch it at least 3 times a week..  thanks to my 2 year old) I highly recommend a re-watch or a watch if you haven't...  There you will find the rest of the quote, and also be reminded that Lightning comes to love his "Hillbilly Hell".. Kinda like me.  Life in a small town in the middle of nowhere was really never what I dreamed of...   However, after 17 years of it...  Most days I feel like I pretty much have everything I every dreamed of and then some..  Thanks to an amazing guy and 7 other "peeps" that I call my own (that's the & Co. part)  Here's a couple pics of what we've been doing recently..  I need to say right up front that I don't have an amazing camera ( ya it's an Iphone 4s.. sometimes an Ipad).  But that's ok "matches the rest of the "blog" "  (also a "Car's" thing).
Like I said... not a great pic, but this is a big part of our summer and we only had one good opportunity this year to grab a photo of the whole gang..  So that's it, my first blog post ever!!  I'm still working on my "angle" Pretty sure it's going to evolve as I get going, but one thing I want to share  with is one of my main sources of inspiration (apart from my Hubby & Kiddo's OF COURSE ) for finally doing this.. my "Cyber Friend" Mel who has an amazing blog that I use EVERY SINGLE DAY... not joking !!

 This was last night's family treat, enjoyed after a rousing game of Ticket to Ride.. a new favorite use of a summer afternoon.  So that's it my husband will probably do a happy dance.. or just smile.... because that's more his style.
