What's not to love about Churchill Downs and the Kentucky Derby?
Good food, good company, excitement, big hats, pretty preppy sundresses, beautiful horses and mint juleps! Oh and crazy hats, too!
I LOVE betting on horse races. And w. no educated method to my madness, I'd say I do pretty well. As ridiculous as it sounds I base my bets on 3 things; the horse's name, the jockey's silks and how the horse actually looks. And I rarely pick the favorite.
So who's my winning horse for the 2010 race?
Here's to good southern food and good times! For you all you VA'ns that are headed to Gold Cup tomorrow, have a fabulous time!
I'm a southern girl at heart, raised on the ways and gentle kindness of a small town Southern man; living in a not-so-southern, too fast paced city that I share a love-hate relationship with. I'm completely type A and love shopping, eating, volunteering, all things Lilly, St. Jude, my family and I desire to be an amazing cook and housewife, just like my mom (Paula Deen's twin) one day when I have a kitchen that doesn't require me to store half of it in a storage closet.
