A Horse Walks into a Bar…Derby Do’s and Derby Dont’s.

1 May


Hooray, hooryay the first of May!!  It’s a good Friday when I can start my blog with my favorite joke!  #KillingIt

I had another blog planned for today.  The good news is it means it’s going to be a Marvelous Monday with a special blog!  Not a MANic Monday blog, per se, but a blog about a special Man!  Best. Monday. Ever!

I was asked if I was going to blog about what to wear to the Kentucky Derby and my response was No.  It would have been a timely blog, since Tomorrow (first Saturday in May) is always the “most exciting 2 minutes in sports”….The Kentucky Derby!    Then I remember, that I aim to please.  I’m a #SavvyBlogger. I try to be timely.   And, quite frankly, Doctor Stevie has been spoon-feeding me Songs of the Day and since she inquired about the derby post, I have changed my planned blog and present to you:

All Things Derby!



The Lingo…because there Is a Lingo at the Derby!



Derby Do’s and Don’ts

Derby Day…due to rainy weather, Connie made last minute costume change to dress for the weather.  #SavvyDerbyGal




Vineyard Vines…Official style of the Kentucky Derby.  Well, fancy that!  Patrick certainly is pleased.

Song of the Day:  Black Horse and the Cherry Tree by KT Turnstall

I felt a little fear upon my back
He said “Don’t look back, just keep on walking.”
When the big black horse said, “Hey lady!”
Said, “Look this way, will you marry me?”

But I said no, no, no, no-no-no
I said no, no, you’re not the one for me


I’m not going to the Kentucky Derby, nor am I going to a Derby party (though I was invited…#Choices), however Arlington Racetrack opens this weekend and my favorite betting partner and I will be taking in opening day!  Throwing it back to one of my favorite times at the track, just missing a pic of me and one of my favorites, Carol!  Have swedish fish, will rock it at the track!  Best. Day. Ever!




May the best horse win. 🙂

    That does it, I am having an impromptu Derby Party tomorrow! We’ve been to Churchill Downs and it is just as amazing as Arlington Racetrack, which is my all time favorite racetrack. So happy you will be there opening day in your winning ways! We’ve been to Keeneland also and it is GORGEOUS, though strikes me as unusual it is only open in April and October (horses are too busy running at Arlington all summer I guess.) Love the shout out, super fun blog post.
