Celebrating My SpeedRacer

We had a celebration last night over here on Makeup and Modified's
But before I tell you that story, I figured it was only right to tell you how M & M got it's name. 

This sweet little blog of mine is called "Makeup and Modified's," and I haven't explained where the "Modified" part came from and even what a Modified is. Of course, I am the "Makeup" part of this dynamic duo and that Speedracing husband of mine is the "Modified" part. 

So what is Modified? It's a Racecar. Yes, a racecar, and if you've been around my blog for the last 5 years then you know that my husband is a racecar driver, aka, Speedracer being his nickname. He is an Oval Dirt Track Racer and races in a class called the IMCA Modified's. When I began blogging somewhere between ages 13-14, my blogs name was obviously something completely different then it is now but since SR and I got together 5 years ago, I had been thinking of a way to incorporate both of us into my blog. I deleted my first blog baby about a month after we got married in 2014 because I felt like it was time to retire and start a new, which is where I got the idea for Makeup and Modified's. I thought it was the perfect combination of the two of us. Fun Fact: Modified is also our fur babies name. 



And now too our celebration: Last night was the last race of the season at our local race track, so as we do every saturday morning, we packed everything up and headed into the 100 degree weather. SpeedRacer woke up with a good feeling and told me "I'm ready to go Win today," and we both were confident that we could go home with a win. SR started front row out of a 10 car main event, which is  actually a small pack, and took the green. He got out in front and pulled away from his competitors. 25 of the longest laps of my life later......HE WON!!! It's safe to say that I have no more tears to cry and I have no voice. I don't remember the last time I cried so hard or yelled so much. It's totally worth  it though. Don't you think? It's nice to know my little blog title can live up to it's name and SR can live up to his nickname. 

And so, we are spending this sweet sunday hanging around the house as we watch some football and I get ready for tomorrow's Makeup Monday Post. I hope you had an exciting weekend like we did!!

As for my SpeedRacer....
I cannot find the words to tell you how proud I am to be your Wife and #1 Fan. You never seize to amaze me and I am one lucky lady!
