Valspar Championship Golf Tournament Giveaway

valspar golf championship

 

Spring is just around the corner so you know what that means! It’s time for the Valspar Championship 2017, part of the PGA Tour known as “Most Colorful PGA TOUR Tournament in the World.” Golf lovers will descend upon Innisbrook in Palm Harbor, Florida decked in the brightest and most eye catching colors they can find.

For the 3rd year in a row I’m pleased to announce that Outdoorsy Diva will be in attendance thanks to Valspar Championship and my readers can win a pair of tickets to attend too!!

Now I’m no golf fan by any stretch, but I have found the Valspar Championship to be a great way to spend time with the family enjoying the outdoors.   Check out my post about why you should attend a golf tournament even if you aren’t a golf fan!

Another great draw to make the Valspar Championship such a nice outing for families is the abundance of activities for kids. They dedicate a whole area as a kid zone that your littles will love!

Of course there is world championship golf happening and I have to say that final round can get really exciting!! I ended up just feet from the ball during one of the crucial final rounds last year.

Here is a list of the fun non-golf activities to look forward to at the Valspar Championship:

Top 10 Florida State Fair Food Favorites To Die For

For as long as I’ve lived in Tampa,Florida, the start of February has signaled the arrival of the Florida State Fair. I looked forward to the annual Fair Day out of school to go and ride ridiculously crazy rides until I puked and play the midway games.   I also loved stuffing my face with deep fried goodness and other fair food favorites.

And then I got old and my love affair ended. Even as a mom I only recall taking my own son a few times to the fair over the years. He always had a friend he could go with so I was off the hook.

But this year I was hosted by the Florida State Fair and my long lost love affair with the brightly colored midway, meat on a stick, and deep fried everything was rekindled. It was like meeting up with an old long lost friend. Read More »

Some People Travel By Plane, I Took a Blimp Ride

blimp ride

I’ve been fascinated with blimps since I was a little girl. I used to get so excited when I spotted the Goodyear or the Metlife blimp fly over. By a fortunate stroke of favor from the universe I was granted the opportunity to take a blimp ride with members of the media, checking off a bucket list adventure I never dreamed I would actually get the chance to do. It’s not like you can just book a blimp ride as you would a plane flight so this is indeed an elite mile high club that not many will never get a chance to say they are apart of. Read More »

For the 2nd year in a row Busch Gardens has invited me to the opening night events for Howl-O-Scream, one of the premier Halloween haunted events in the whole state of Florida.
