How was your weekend?? Mine was AWESOME! Even after almost 4 years in the Quad Cities... there are a few things I haven't done yet, and this weekend, I checked off a couple of "firsts!"

The Summer Nationals were at Cordova Dragway - I've never gone out to Cordova and uhhh, did I pick a good weekend to check it out or WHAT?! I've never seen anything like it! Jet cars that sounded like airplanes before they took off... 285 MPH!! It was I.N.S.A.N.E. The World Series of Drag Racing is next month and you can bet your bottom dollar I'll be there! ;)

#SundayFunday was a success as a group of friends and I celebrated CHRISTMAS IN JULY with an ugly sweater party. Then, it was off to the QC Riverbandits game where our friend, Marty, threw out his first pitch at the QC Riverbandits game! He's a long-time season ticket holder and HUGE Bandits fan, and it was super fun to see one of his dreams come true with some of my closest friends! The weather cooperated, sunshine and warm temperatures blanketed us downtown Davenport... couldn't have asked for a better day!

With all that said, my weekend gets an A+. No doubt about it! How about YOU? What grade would you give your weekend AND WHY? Email me at or join the conversation on Facebook!
