Run For The Roses

It takes place in Louisville, Kentucky...
the first Saturday of May...
at the lovely Churchill Downs...
It has been dubbed "the most exciting 2 minutes in Sports"
I can definitely see why...
Yes, I'm talking about the Kentucky Derby...
The Derby is very big in our household considering my husband is from Louisville...horserace1















See...even Barbie is a Derby girl...
and she is dressed most appropriately...



And no Derby would be complete without its signature drink...
The Mint Julep...
Served in the silver Derby cup...

So grab a few friends, 






a dozen roses 
(since it is "The Run for the Roses"},
maybe have some friendly wagering, 
serve up some Hot Browns, 
Benedictine as an appetizer,
and voila...
Have a great weekend!
