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 ...an 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).

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.
