Dreaming of the KY Derby (and other things)

It's that time of year when I start panicking about making it to the KY Derby. I've never been. Not to the Derby and not to the Oaks. Of course last year we had tickets to the Oaks but I came down with pneumonia :( I still get SOOOO upset about it. Anyway, I must be missing something but is it REALLY this hard to get SEATS for the Derby...(not to mention that they cost about $500 per person)??? If anyone has an insight for this KY girl who has never been to the Derby, please let me know! For now I'll dream:

Maybe to lift my spirits I will treat myself to a few things after work! I'm thinking Kenwood Mall for shopping and strawberry martinis at the Cheesecake Factory!

Cheers to Wednesday!

How sad that the world lost her this week?

I've never been a die hard fan, but EVERYONE knows Elizabeth Taylor!! RIP :(

Anyone have really exciting plans this weekend? We will be watching the CATS take on the BUCKEYES...there is a shirt I would love to put on my blog about OSU, but I'm not sure everyone would approve :) so how about this for now...

C A T S - cats cats cats!!!!

What have I been doing?

Hi friends,

I just realized out of nowhere today that I haven't posted in a while and I haven't even checked out other peoples blogs in a while! So now that I've caught up on what you've been up to...I guess it's my turn!

As always, I've been staying busy at work. I may have mentioned that I am now managing two people and it takes a lot out of you! It's been great, but it definitely adds to my workload! March 9 - 14 my husband and I along with two of our friends went to Naples FL and met up with my parents (we stayed in their condo) for vaca. I didn't take hardly ANY photos and it went by WAY too fast, but we had a great time! Here are a couple of photos b/f our dinner at Tommy Bahama (my FAV).

Can't have a post in the month of March without mentioning these guys!

So far so good...GO CATS!

Lots of fun things coming up...Keeneland, my sister-in-laws wedding in Hawaii, Derby, Summer and the LAKE!

Happy first day of spring ladies. Have a great DAY!

Few "fun" things

Happy Thursday!

A couple of fun things for this afternoon.

1) Have you had this yet? (Sorry it uploaded sideways and I'm too lazy to fix it.)

I know it looks scary, and I know I've blogged about it before, but who cares!! It's a Frisch's Big Boy Pizza! YUMMMOOO Recipe here. If you haven't had it...make it now!

2) I have been trying my "hand" at fabric flowers to decorate gifts I give to friends. This particular gift if for my niece Sophie and I think the little flower makes the wrapping so CUTE!

If you want to try it out for yourself here are the simple instructions I followed.

Lastly, I've mentioned the 80's party we had last weekend but I forgot to mention how tired the dogs were after the party, lol. Check out Rupp:

Ha...little cutie pie!

It's almost time to celebrate FRIDAY!

Last weekend, this weekend and a crazy person

Good morning Gals,

Well I kind of feel like it has taken me until today to recover from last weekend! Friday evening we went to a local "tavern" to celebrate a friends birthday then Saturday I ran around like a crazy person trying to get our house ready for our 80's party in celebration of the hubbys 30th BIRTHDAY! (His birthday is actually today.) Here are the results:

Ha! Good times! Once again I was a terrible photographer and didn't get a good photo of the birthday boy! (Other people did though so I'm hoping to get a copy of their photos.)

On to this coming's whats in store:

If you know country music you know this is a photo of Jason Aldean and Eric Church! CAN'T WAIT for their SHOW! Oh...not to mention we have meet and greet passes!!! Hooray! The three of us going are having shirts made for the event...mine says "DAMN THESE BOOTS" on the front (my favorite song), Brooke's says "AIN'T KILLED ME YET" on the front and Jen's says "KEEP YOUR MOUTH SHUT & CARRY A BIG STICK" of her favorite lyrics! All of our shirts say "GIRLS LIKE ME LOVE GUYS LIKE ERIC CHURCH" HA! Yes, we are acting like 13 year old girls, but who cares!!!???

Moving on, how can I post on this fine morning without mentioning how much of a PSYCHO this dude is:

In case you've had your head in the sand this week, here are some of the statements he has made this week:

On his natural high: "I am on a drug. It's called Charlie Sheen. It's not available. If you try it once, you will die. Your face will melt off and your children will weep over your exploded body." ("20/20.")

On how he survived his other highs: "I probably took more than anybody could survive. ... I was bangin' seven-gram rocks and finishing them because that's how I roll, because I have one speed, one gear. ... I'm different. I have a different constitution, I have a different brain, I have a different heart. I got tiger blood, man. Dying's for fools, dying's for amateurs." ("20/20.")

On partying: "I mean, what's not to love? Especially when you see how I party man, it's epic. The run I was on made Sinatra, Flynn, Jagger, Richards, all of them, just look like droopy-eyed, armless children." ("20/20.")

On his dual personality: "I have a 10,000-year-old brain and the boogers of a 7-year-old. That's how I describe myself." ("Piers Morgan Tonight.")

On his desire to be his true self: "I'm tired of pretending I'm not a total bitchin' rock star from Mars, and people can't figure me out; they can't process me. I don't expect them to. You can't process me with a normal brain." ("The Today Show.")

Hmmm...he sounds like he is in a GREAT state of mind doesn't he??? Wow this dude is NUTS!
