What's up, guys! Happy Wednesday! This past weekend I had the pleasure of going to the LPGA #KiaClassic at Aviara Golf Club in beautiful Carlsbad, CA. I watched some of my favorite LPGA players including winner Lydia Ko (that girl is on fire!), Paula Creamer, Lexi Thompson, Morgan Pressel, Michelle Wie, and Suzann Pettersen. I also was able to check out some cool Kia cars which is great because I'm in the market for a new car!

Here's my mom and I arriving to the tournament on Saturday. Yeah my mom is cuter than me, I know.  First stop was the entrance of the tournament checking out this Kia Soul. I actually used to have this car and after this weekend I'm thinking of getting it again! It's so cute but practical and comfortable. It has enough room for clubs in the trunk which is always #1 on my list! Michelle Wie and I would be car twins again! :)

  Second stop was at the Kia photoshoot booth with Two Dudes Exposure! The crew was so nice and made me laugh- as you can tell from the photos! This was so much fun and free for all spectators! Such a great opportunity for a new family photo. Not to mention another cute Kia Soul in the background :) 

 

Next stop I watched Christina Kim on the driving range- she is so funny, I love her! Then, I went out to watch on hole 9 where I ran into the U.S. Marines. I thanked them for their service and for being out at the tournament and of course snapped a pic with them!

After watching a few groups hit into #9 green, we headed over to the Kia Skybox on hole #18 where I watched my girl Michelle Wie finish her round. I love her style! Also loving that K900 in the background.

 

While in the skybox, I ran into Tenley Molzahn from the Bachelor! As a huge Bachelor franchise fan, I was so excited to hear that she is a new golf lover. We had such a great time chatting and enjoying the tournament together!

Before we left, I watched a few different players on the practice greens and #9. I was also able to attend the Meet & Greet with Michelle Wie at the Kia K900 tent! It was so cool meeting her. I'm sure I can speak for most female golfers that her game and style is a total inspiration!

 

  Then my mom and I were able to get a little R&R by the pool and have some fab Mexican food at Las Olas in downtown Carlsbad later that night!  The fish tacos were so good!

Sunday started with watching Lexi Thompson on the driving range. I could watch her hit the ball all day long! She is so long and consistent.

 

Then, I said hello to the troops again on hole #9.  They said they would start following my blog so you better be reading this now guys! ;)

We stopped by the Kia photoshoot booth again where they snapped this great picture of my mama and me!

 Next family Christmas card photo? Sorry, dad!

And of course I had to take the opportunity to hit a few myself! The LPGA teaching pros were giving lessons right on the range right next to the LPGA players! So cool.

Before we left we checked out a few more booths and grandstands including this one with past winners. Were you guys surprised that Lydia Ko won?! I mean, come on the girl is a female version of Tiger! But even better! Did you know Tiger didn't get 11 tour wins until he was 23? Lydia has won 11 times- and she's only 18. Straight #girlpower right there.

Also, if you're in Carlsbad area I definitely recommend visiting the Flower Fields! It was absolutely stunning and peaceful. This was fun to go to Easter morning  before heading to the tournament. 

   Thank you to Kia for having me out at the event this weekend and for sponsoring this post! It was definitely an Easter/mother daughter weekend for the books.

   Nikki B out!
