Road Trip!!!

Since I couldn't write much while we were on our trip, I've been absent for most of the holiday weekend.  However, I tweeted my fingers off! :)  I'm not great at twitter.  I sometimes go days without checking my feed, and when you have 500+ new tweets, you sometime just have to give up and start at the top of the feed.  I've done that more often then I want to admit!  So.... I figured the best way to sum up my trip is to share them with you here!  
The general story:  We rented a car to drive 10 hours North on Friday, to go to my husband's aunt's wedding on Saturday, to drive home on Sunday.

our rental car has xm raido! what are the good stations?

short detour to our old house... they kept the front door red!

pimped out station wagon, dual exhaust, "hiofficr" licence plate, driven by an OLD guy, 

random things you learn about your husband (of almost 7 years!) on a long road trip: he was in chior at school....

he will drive on a rumble strip to drown out me singing 90s boy band songs to him (its my turn to control the raido!)

the cars speekers can go real loud... he found the hip hop station and my insides are jiggling

five hours down...five more to go....  

my fingers hurt from picking all the salt off my pretzels...

who has rush hour at 2:20 in the afternoon?  

we are going AWAY from the equator...why is the temp going up? 

we just stopped at the most pregnant gas station...3 ladies about to pop walking around inside.  

hey, there aren't any floor mats in this  

(a friend who rented us the car tweeted to me that when rental car companies buy the type of car we got they don't come with them...)

thats weird.... they have the little hooks for them (my toe found one...)   

Trav thinks i'm slap happy... and doesn't love that I'm using up my data... he warned me I better not go over 

Whats in the box that is so important that it blocks your field of vision?  After following them for 78 miles?  Ice Tea. 

our more hours.... blah... stupid rush hour in the middle of the afternoon 

 food so far: almost salt free pretzles, water, and salad I think as a reward for getting through  should be ice cream!

worst road ever=I 35 in Northern Iowa   can you tell I am OVER Iowa?!? were on exit 197, someone look up how many more?

We're headed to Wisconsin...via !

Minnesota!! no more . However, still  

just passed into Mn! last sign simply said "casino" I'd rather use data complaining on tweets then actually finding out where!

I think I just threw up a little in my mouth... GO PACK GO!  

free wifi!  and  weird combo!

my  lover! isnt he handsome!

we turned it up all.the.way! 
my desire was bigger then my stomach!    

if you are a new follower, I'm sorry, I normaly don't tweet this much...ever... I'm just trying to stay entertained!

he want's to get back on the road.I enjoyed my 10 min out of the car, my tummy has ice cream, and I'm riding next to someone thats pretty hot

good by free wifi less then 2 hours left  !

just passed the  hall of fame...gotta stop there on the way home!  I've never had  

trav wouldn't let me stop, he said on the way home, he might let us stop to take a pic next to the big spam can!

saw these huge wind farma on the way up  

he discovered with a swift uppercut, he could "bite" the pretzel in half  

helpful that I've had 5 knee surgeries on my left knee, he can multitask!  

 is over, we made it!

at least the good looking one is in the pictures! 

it was beautiful at sunset!

can't make this up.... we u-turned so I could take a picture!

BEST BAR EVER  there was packer stuff everywhere!

Local hero, Packer Elvis! 

hes cleaning off the clicker!  !

we are at one of the most pathetic hotel breakfasts ever!

the most awesome bathroom ever, pink and hunter green at his grandmas!

Trav showing his grandma how to text. we took a pic and sent it to his mom and she responded

grandma was amazed at how quick she responded! so funny, we showed her apps to 

our motel last remodeled circa 1987....

to bad this didn't catch on. Every hotel should have them. (it was empty-we tried!) 

- part duex: the trip home, coming soon to a tweet near you!

so... I have full signal, but can't but upload photos.... 

really?   finds

does this look odd to anyone else? 

awesome! We're back to Iowa.... maybe it won't be as sucky as two days ago? 

guess what I am! thud-thud-thud-thud-thud-thud-thud-thud-thud-thud-thud-thud-thud-thud-thud-thud-thud-thud-thud-thud-thud-thud-thud #roadtrip

roads! thud-thud-thud

headed home, the mile markers count down! 188 miles left in !

Question: how many times will Travis randomly honk the horn while driving? person who guesses close will get a post card from !!

hint: we're still seven hours away, and he's done it twice.... again, at compleatly random times! win a post card from 

my husband just bit the stearing wheel of a RENTAL car, yet had to wipe down the remote in the hotel before using it?!? 

worst sound ever...kfc worker pushing in all 18 chairs across tile floor!  

Travis  while driving!  

what a majority of our trip home looked like.   

woohoo home turf!  #almosthome

its like having to go through a maze to get from P to D! 

goodbye black rocket... you were a great  over! We are !


  1. Wow! Awesome post. I love twitter too! Glad you had a great trip!

  2. LOL...just saw this! Looks like a great trip...but I have to say.
    Iowa is not fertile...or not for me anyways...
    But I do agree...for everyone else! UGH.

    Glad you had a good trip!
