Miss Kustom Kulture 2012

Adelaide's very own Kustom Kulture Weekender is only 4 weeks away, and this year I am entering the Miss Kustom Kulture competition. There are three judges, but "likes" from people are considered in the voting process. Here is the photo I have entered, thanks to my lovely and patient husband for taking it for me.

Miss Molly's Ameican Adventure- Viva Las Vegas Weekender

There is only 7 weeks left for Sam and I until we are jetting off to the land of the free. I have been busy organising our accommodation, car hire and researching places to go and things to do, but the first thing on our agenda in attending Viva Las Vegas for the very first time! I am so excited to be going. We got in early and booked a room at The Orleans about a year ago- I heard you’re not doing Viva right unless you are staying where all the action is!

One of the things I am looking forward to the most is meeting people. So if there are any people out there who read my blog and recognise my face at Viva, please come and say hello- I would love to meet you!
Of course I am excited for the music too. I think JD McPherson will be my highlight. All of my girlfriends are very jealous  of me..hehe. I also get to see Big Sandy twice in one month, in two different countries! He is headlining Kustom Kulture 10, here in Adelaide, and is also playing a few spots around Melbourne and Brisbane next month. The pool party looks like a whole lot of fun, and I can't wait to get my very own Boot! Sam is looking forward to the car show, and seeing the Ventures will be a treat too.

So...who else is going? Have you got any tips for this VLV virgin? I would love to hear what you are looking forward to.
