Yay!

i am so excited that it is FINALLY june 2. our big event was last night and it was a huge success. i cannot believe it’s finally over, though. more than 600 people showed up and it went off without a hitch.

with so many people, i didn’t have much time to mingle with my friends who came but i think they all had a great time. my folks had a great time and i think hubby’s did as well, though not as much fun as mine did. this event was to celebrate the anniversary of a racing drivers school. i work for the owners of school as their personal assistant. we are in the process of building a cool new facility at the racetrack here and this was the kick off event. we also introduced our new racing car specially made for us by a well known company in england. it was so great.

after the guests got their car valeted, they got the option of driving a go kart or being driven in a golf car to the event site. my dad came roaring down the go kart track. it was so cute. my mom opted for the golf kart. we have also just partnered with audi and we introduced the brand spanking new audis that have never ever been released before ever before. we will now be running the audi ultimate drive experience tour at racetracks across the country. as part of the event last night, guests were able to get in one of the new audi’s and be driven by a world class race car driver around the track at warp speeed. my dad had the best time.

we also had several alcohol sponsors. the coolest one was hennesey, who had set up several ice sculpture bars and had sexy models serving their drinks. it was a really great event. hubby showed up and was on his best behavior, too. ms. fleurs and her beau came as did a few other friends.

we had a few minor celebrities show up, the coolest ones being joe montana and john lasseter. 5 formula 1 racecars were auctioned off by the celebrities and the proceeds all went to the charity of the celebrities choosing. scott speed was there as well, as he is our shining star right now — he got his start and won his first championship at our racing school. he’s the first american race car driver in many years to win a formula 1 championship and he’s sooo young! he is now on team red bull.

the only bad part is that i woke up with a bit of a cold this morning! i guess it didn’t help that i wasn’t in the warmest of clothes last night, but i did look great! hopefully some good r&r this weekend will make me feel all better.

my folks will be over soon — dad, hubby and my fil are going to buy a new motor boat for the cabin so mom and i will hang out for the day. hopefully that won’t be too painful…then tonight we’re all having dinner together. cross your fingers that all goes well!

time to get another cup of coffee and change the litter box…..
