NASCAR Red Carpet

NASCAR Awards Banquet


What an EPIC weekend! Vegas will never be the same. This was our second year walking the NASCAR red carpet and we had a blast. 

image2 copy.jpeg

Life is so much more fun with your bestie by your side. It's even better when you have so much love and support around you.

Here's a recap of Champions Week in Vegas + all the details.

image1 copy.jpeg

I had so much fun designing my dress with Johnathan Kayne. I knew exactly what I wanted and he made it into a reality. I love working with JK and appreciate him so much for going out of his way to make me custom pieces.


I wanted my look show my personality - fun and crazy with lots of bling. I also wanted a really messy high ponytail. We went really short with long sleeves so my legs were the main focus. Again, so much love goes to Johnathan Kayne for slaying this design.

image3 copy.jpeg

My heels and clutch were made with broken glass to really bring the bling and to set off the whole look.


Mariel killed the carpet with a custom Jovani gown. We always want to look the same but different so 'bling' was the theme for the night.


For the after party, Mariel changed into a fun sparkly party dress. Again, the same but different. We had the best time! Here are all the pictures and make sure you check out our instagram for the full video of the proposal.

Fall Recipes: Lasagna Soup

Lasagna Soup


Yes, this is a thing! This Lasagna Soup is AH-mazing. The flavors are perfection and I can't wait for you to try this one. DELICIOUS and easy!


∙ Serves 8


  • 1 1/2 lb Italian sausage


  • 1/2 cup Basil, fresh leaves

  • 2 Bay leaves

  • 4 Garlic cloves

  • 3 cup Onions

  • 2 tsp Oregano, dried

  • 1 28-oz. can Tomatoes, fire roasted

Canned Goods

  • 6 cup Chicken stock

  • 2 tbsp Tomato paste

Pasta & Grains

  • 8 oz Mafalda or fusilli pasta

Baking & Spices

  • 1 pinch Pepper, freshly ground

  • 1/2 tsp Red pepper flakes

  • 1/4 tsp Salt

  • 1 Salt and freshly ground black pepper

Oils & Vinegars

  • 2 tsp Olive oil


  • 1/2 cup Parmesan cheese, grated

  • 8 oz Ricotta


Heat olive oil in a large pot over medium heat. Add meat, breaking up into bite sized pieces, and brown for about 5 minutes. Add onions and cook until softened, about 6 minutes. Add garlic, oregano, and red pepper flakes. Cook for 1 minute. Add tomato paste and stir well to incorporate. Cook for 3 to 4 minutes, or until the tomato paste turns a rusty brown color.

Add diced tomatoes, bay leaves, and chicken stock. Stir to combine. Bring to a boil and then reduce heat and simmer for 30 minutes. Add uncooked pasta and cook until al dente. Do not over cook or let soup simmer for a long period of time at this point, as the pasta will get mushy and absorb all the soup broth. You may even want to consider cooking the noodles separately, and then adding some to individual bowls before ladling the soup over them. This would be an especially smart move if you are anticipating any leftovers. Right before serving, stir in the basil and season to taste with salt and freshly ground black pepper.

While the pasta is cooking, prepare the cheesy yum. In a small bowl, combine the ricotta, Parmesan, salt, and pepper.

To serve, place a dollop of the cheesy yum in each soup bowl, sprinkle some of the mozzarella on top and ladle the hot soup over the cheese.

Engagement Photos

The Future Mr. and Mrs. Austin Dillon


I think it really hits you when you get your engagement photos back... WE'RE GETTING MARRIED! We had so much fun shooting our engagement photos at Middleton Place Plantation in Charleston, South Carolina. I've always been a huge fan of 'The Notebook' so I wanted to shoot at one of the plantations. Here are a few of my favorite photos...


Charleston is incredibly romantic. I have to give AD props for shooting the day after his Darlington race which he placed 4th! YAYUH. He's not big into photos but he was a champ. 


Sometimes you have to get creative with outfits. I envisioned a romantic, bohemian style, white lace gown. I couldn't find what I was looking for so I made my own. This was a short white dress with long sleeves. I found it on clearance for $30 so I bought three of them and sewed it into a long gown. It ended up being around $90.00. Score!!


I wanted the theme to be bohemian. I'm in love with the look of boho brides. Effortless, timeless, and dreamy.


I have to give a big shout out to our incredible wedding photographers, Kristin and Aaron with Kristin Byrum Photography. I searched through tons of NC wedding photographers and their photos stuck out the most. They make you feel so comfortable right off the bat and they love Jesus. 


I can't wait to marry this man! I love you. I love you. I love you.

Bridal Shower

Whit's All White Bridal Shower

image1 copy.JPG

I can't believe I'm about to be MRS. WHITNEY DILLON! Ahhhhhh, you guys I'm so excited. Less than 4 months away!


My beautiful bridal shower was just how I like it, over the top and intimate. It was hosted at Childress Vineyards because it's the prettiest Winery you'll ever visit. I have three people I can't thank enough for putting all of this together - My Maid of Honor, Mariel Lane, wedding planner, Ashley Hartman, and Future Mother in Law, Mrs. Tina! These three put together the most BEAUTIFUL bridal shower I've ever seen and I am so grateful and blessed to have such amazing people in my life. 

image2 copy.JPG

Love is in the details and these girls made me feel oh so loved. Every single detail was so thought out and screamed "whitney." Thank you for making me feel extra special on my fun day. 

I'm also so thankful for my family who drove up from Tennessee, as well as my North Carolina friends and family. Thank you for showing me so much love and support. I truly appreciate each and every one of you more than you know. 


We had everyone wear white to get into the wedding spirit and that was one of my favorite parts. I loved the romantic feel to the party with a little rustic and a lot of glam. As you entered, you were served a glass of champagne and seated in the main room. Mariel had Beyonce playing as we ate dinner. 

image2 copy 2.JPG

There were fresh flowers everywhere. We had a flower crown bar where you could make your own crown to take home. I think the biggest hit of the night was the desert table. The table was full of candy, mini cupcakes, mini donuts, large pink donuts, and cake. It was all so delicious and beautiful.

How perfect was the pink chair with the chandelier? The chalkboard backdrop with "future Mrs. Dillon" was beyond perfect. They had another photo backdrop when you walked in that said "Kiss the Miss goodbye." I keep staring at all of the photos and I can't believe how perfect everything turned out.

I can't thank everyone enough for coming to celebrate. I CAN'T WAIT to celebrate my big day!!!!!! This shower was the kick off for everything to come. WOO!

Girls Trip

Girls Trip: Outfit Ideas

With Whit's Bachelorette nearing, and the all the buzz around Girl Trips, we thought it would be a great time to give a couple ideas on what to wear on vacation. We chose these dresses because they were perfect daytime dresses, but were easily transitioned for night time, without looking like you were still in your clothes from earlier. Try a loose fitted dress with fun prints on your next vacay. When comfort meets style, you've got a winning combination.

AD's FIRST Cup Win

Sunday, May 28th at 12:30AM, Austin won the Coca-Cola 600 at Charlotte Motor Speedway. He passed the #48 car with two laps to go. Jimmie Johnson ran out of gas! The #78 was catching Austin quickly with new tires and the #18 was right behind him. The tension was heavy. Anything could happen at this point. I was shaking and tears were pouring down my face as I watched Austin cross the finish line. HE DID IT! It has been 17 years since the #3 car was in Victory Lane. This is LEGENDARY and I’m so grateful to have experience this moment with my future husband.

This is the greatest day in racing because three prestigious races happen throughout the day. The race in Monaco, Indy 500, and the Coca-Cola 600 to wrap up the day. The Coca-Cola 600 is the longest race of the year and is known as one of the crown jewels of racing.

I’ve had a lot of you ask what I was doing and where I was when he won. Our bus driver came running in to get me and said, “LETS GO.” The TV is delayed so I didn’t know he had won but Dkyman was listening to him on the radio and radio is present time. I literally stood there in complete shock, and said, “ARE WE GONNA WIN?” and Dkyman died laughing and said, “WE ALREADY WON, LETS GO.”

Victory Lane was UNREAL. My best friend, the monster girls, RCR, ECR, Austin’s family, my brother, Denny Hamlin and the RCR drivers all came to celebrate. The only thing missing was my parents and they were dying they couldn’t make it.

The party didn’t stop there either. We finally got home at 5:00AM and EVERYONE was waiting at our house to continue the celebration. People were pouring in with love and support for Austin and his crew. We didn’t call one person to come over and I think thats how you know you’re loved. Almost every person from victory lane beat us home to celebrate. We didn’t sleep at all!

One of the coolest parts was Austin’s epic burnout in his gold camaro. If you haven’t seen it, WATCH THIS! 

When I tell you, I felt like all my dreams had come to pass, everything felt complete. My fiancee, Austin Dillon, is the hardest working man I know. He’s the toughest and he’s a fighter. It’s hard to watch the man you love come home empty handed week after week. This year has been the hardest. We’ve had the worse luck with broken parts, bad race cars, and sheer bad luck.

I always did my best to stay positive and pour confidence into Austin. Austin’s support system is unreal. His parents, family, friends, and fans always keep him motivated. However, during the tough times, God is always trying to show us something. There’s always a lesson to be learned, you just have to allow God to work in you. After all, God’s way is always better than our own. 

If I could give any kind of advice it would be to always be thankful during the hard times because God is shaping you for the good. God cares more about your character and bringing you home to Heaven than any materialistic thing He could bless you with on earth. Lastly, remember to praise God during the bad. On the worst days, fall to your knees and thank Him. We serve a GOOD God and a very intentional God. 

Every week I write a bible scripture in his race car along with a little note. I started this tradition in 2016. I love blessing his race car with God’s word. I believe with all my heart that it keeps Austin safe. 

This week’s scripture was Proverbs 3:4-5 “In all your ways acknowledge Him, and He shall direct your paths.” I also wrote a little motivation which read, ‘When you keep God first place, He will take you places you’ve never imagined.' Also, 'GiiC' stands for God is in Control.

This win is a testimony of God’s hand! Every little detail about this race goes back to God. He gets all the Glory. Thank You Jesus!

Lastly, we’re so grateful and humbled by all the love and support. Every single text, comment, message, and like has not gone unnoticed. We’ve tried to reply to all of you but if I missed you here is your thank you. WE LOVE YOU GUYS! 

Cheers to 2017! Our wedding year and Austin’s first cup win!!!!!

AD's 80s Skate Party

Celebrating AD's 27th Birthday

April 25th we celebrated Whitney's fiancee's 27th birthday! We rolled in style with an 80's theme. It was the perfect birthday party for Austin because it allowed the guys to tap into their competitive side and gave the girls a chance to have fun and skate and dress up. We played everything from Red Light, Green Light to Speed Skate.

We love having fun and never getting too old to celebrate birthdays! Each year is a blessing and should be made into an event! Cheers to you AD! 

Happy 27th birthday!

With the biggest day of my life quickly approaching, our trip to New York was nothing short of surreal. I couldn't have chose a better place, with better people by my side to find my special dress. Before visiting New York to find my gown I must say it was a bit intimidating, so I wanted to share a few tips for shopping for your big day. We visited NYC in search of the perfect wedding gown, and that is EXACTLY what we found!


1. Early bird gets the worm! We scheduled the first appointment of the day and had the luxury of choosing all the gowns first. We also scored the biggest room!

2. Know what you like: You know what looks good on your body more than anyone. Don't forget while choosing your dream gown, it displays your personality.

3. Seasons/Themes: Your dress needs to match the vibe of your wedding. For example, you wouldn't want to pick a couture gown for a  'summer bohemian' wedding.

4. Do your research: Before going to any bridal boutiques, do your research and make sure you like their style dresses. I knew Kleinfeld Bridal had a ton of dresses that I would love. 

5. ENJOY it: This was one of the best trips I've ever been on. I had my best friend, my mom, and Aunt Shirley. Being bridezilla is so last year. Be positive! Don't lose sight of what's really important - You and your husband becoming one with God as your leader.

6. Don't Tell: Once you've found your dream gown, delete the evidence off your phone. Don't give any details so everyone can be surprised. The dress is a statement and you can't make one if everyone knows. The style, material, brand, and price is 100% confidential.

Central Park Pedicab Tours are a must-do. We laughed so hard and had the best view of the city. Instead of taking a taxi to Central Park, we rode in the Pedicab to the park and did the 1 hour tour. Put this on your bucket list!

Racing Tank by Live Love Gameday / @LiveLoveGameday 

If you ever visit Arizona, you have to climb Camelback Mountain. It's a pretty good hike up a steep mountain and a killer workout. It's more of a rock climb than a trail and I wouldn't recommend if you're scared of heights. However, the views are amazing so it's worth it. We took our time and it took us about two and a half hours to go up and down.

My racing tank is from Live Love Gameday. They have the cutest racing tanks, crop tops, koozies, and hats.  

We we're so pumped to see the Lakers play the Clippers in L.A. We put that on our vision board this year so thats another thing checked off the list. We still can't believe it. It's such a cool experience. 

We were only there for two days so we spent the other day shopping and sight seeing. There are so many boutiques and different malls so we chose Melrose Avenue, Rodeo Drive, and the mall next to our hotel.

We stayed at SLS Hotel in Beverly Hills. It's in the heart of downtown and close to everything. 

And of course, the views of the Hollywood sign are gorgeous!

Race Day 

We had so much fun meeting the WAGS and their hubbys. We had the whole crew hanging out with us on Sunday for the race. Stay tuned for the NASCAR segment for WAGS on E! News.

I have to take a moment to brag on my future hubby. He's always showing up and showing out, and I love it. AD rocked his custom suit by Stitched to the drivers meeting.

I'm the proudest future wifey in the world. He's the most incredible person inside and out.

If you've never rode razors in the desert, you've gotta do it next time you go out West. We had the best time riding with everyone. We rode for about an hour and a half and stopped midway for snacks and drinks.

We also went to see the Michael Jackson show at Mandalay Bay. We loved it and highly recommend going to see it.

First things first, your diet is more vital than you think. If you want to get fit, you have to eat right. Foods high in nutrients fuel your bodies and leave you feeling fuller longer. The vitamins from these foods help you become stronger, healthier, and more energized throughout the day. 

Quick tip: Eating foods rich in fiber will reduce belly fat. Choose red fruit over green, for example, red apples instead of green. 

Here's a list of our top belly burning foods:

Lean Protein: chicken and fish

Green Veggies
Green Tea

Daytona Week

Recap of Daytona 500

Whit + Mariel standing by their favorite car! 3 Team!

I have one of the BEST stylists! My BFF, Miss Mariel Lane, helps me kill it on the track every week. We wanted to really bring it to Daytona. It's the biggest race of the year. Plus, it's a new year so we wanted to do 'not to typical looks' I usually do. 

Saturday, I did my hair crazy for AD. He loves my hair braided and big/messy. Mariel braided my three braids. I scrunched the rest with mousse and added Chi extra hold hair spray to keep the hold. We call this my Viking look (because we're so into the show and they have the best braid inspo).

I wore a black jumpsuit with gold accents. I added black strappy suede heels to keep the cool casual look. 

Jumpsuits and rompers are my jam. Clearly, because I wear them almost every race. So, if you're like me and love certain looks - Here's how you can switch up your go-to style. 

Switch up your hair! I always keep mine down with wand curls and Austin loves it when I do something different. It can change your entire look! Try a messy pony tail, high pony tail, bun, or braids.

Big Booty Kale Smoothie

Health Benefits

This is our favorite go-to kale smoothie. It's energy boosting, fresh, and delicious. 

We all know that greens are healthy and our body needs them but we don't fully understand the health benefits.

Greens contain powerful antioxidants that have cancer-protective properties. It also works as a natural detox for the body.

Kale is so good for the skin, eyes, and bones. It lowers cholesterol and reduces the risk of heart disease and cancer!!!! Thats right people, cancer!!!!! Plus, there are so many vitamins in kale it's kinda crazy. It's rich in Vitamin A, C, and K, calcium, potassium, folic acid, and antioxidants. Wow! 

Fueling Our Bodies The Right Way

My dad always says, our bodies are like cars. A car can't go without fuel. Well, the same goes for our bodies. If you deprive yourself from food, you won't have enough energy to make it through a workout. It seems silly but I can't tell you how many people I know that count calories. 

I'm not saying we need to eat ice cream and pizza to fuel ourselves. But, our bodies were designed to be fueled with the right things. Here is a great option that will be filling for hours.

Faith Driven Fitness

Fitness has always been a huge part of our lives! We've always been on a cheer or dance team which calls for extensive training. We were professional cheerleaders for 4 years so we've had the pleasure of working with the best of the best.

We never went without working out, running, or taking classes but our downfall was our obsession with being thin over healthy. So we thought, fitness is and has always been a huge part of lives, why not share our journey and invite you all to go on one with us.

We knew we wanted to add the fitness portion to our blog when we launched it, but we wanted to get into REAL shape first. We wanted to be strong, not just thin. We wanted to be able to eat and not feel guilty. More than anything, we wanted to be transparent and do it the right way - not starving, or depriving ourselves from anything. 

We're finally ready to introduce to you - Faith Driven Fitness!!!

Our fitness regimen starts with God. It starts by fueling the right things, cleaning out the bad, and restoring what's right. First, you're going to need a devotional! We suggest Joel Osteen's 'Everyday a Friday.' We choose this one because it's an easy read and it's inspirational. Every devotional is about a page long and it'll help keep you on track.

You've gotta start your day with God! This clears your mind and sets your day up for greatness. Our lives get so chaotic when we skip this step. It feels like everything we do is in vain if we don't keep God first. Everything about our lives just feels 'off.' It's really amazing how when you truly seek the kingdom first, God has a way of aligning the rest of your life in your favor. 
Don't just listen to us, try it for yourself.

Fitness Components:

1. Devotional: This is the #1 component to our Faith Driven Fitness. Find a devotional that will influence you, drive you, and inspire you. If you need suggestions, here's the ones we really love. Joel Osteen's: Everyday A Friday and the Breakout Book Journal. Beth Moore's Hope devotional. Lastly, Raindrops from Heaven by Twila Belk. Anything will work. 

2. Journal: The second most important thing is a journal. Don't skip this step! When you write down your goals, your hopes, and your dreams, they become your reality. Write down what God's doing in your life. Write down the blessings he's bestowed. Talk to God about your devotionals you do every morning. Also, record what you eat so you can look back and see what works and what doesn't work.

3. Your bestie: The third most important component is finding a person who will do it with you. Find someone who you can confide in and push to become better. There will be days you have zero inspiration, but your bff will be there to get you through it. Everyone needs someone!

We want you to take this journey with us! It only takes one person to inspire someone. If you begin, you will inspire someone else and they will inspire others. Before you know it, there will be a flood of people diving into Faith Driven Fitness! 

"The greatest legacy is not what we leave for people, it's what we leave IN people."

Who's with us?
