and they're off!

This weekend is the 137th running of the Kentucky Derby.  It is a grand event for horse lovers, fans, and celebrities alike.  And... second only to the horses, it is all about the fashion, but most importantly - your hat!  I will be watching from my mom's house in Kentucky as we celebrate the Derby and Mother's Day! 

Get your mint juleps ready for an afternoon of fun and an exciting 2 minutes of racing! 

Have a great weekend!  And Happy Mother's Day to all the moms out there!
