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!



  1. I have only had the infield experience but one day I will have seats! I love living in Louisville around Derby time, so much fun! I'm also a '05 UK Alum. Excited for game time Saturday night!

  2. Just found your blog and its too cute! I am a Kentucky girl as well-living in Nashville. Just became a follower! Look forward to reading more!!!
