Derby Day - It's Almost Here!


Here's a sneak peek of what will be adorning my head tomorrow - what do you think?

After I blogged about the odd line-up of celebrities that are attending or have attended the Derby, I had a funny thing happen yesterday. I was at the nail salon having a pedicure and everyone was talking about Derby, of course. The lady sitting next to me was quite the Chatty Cathy, so she just had to share what happened to her husband while he was shopping for a tie that afternoon at Von Maur department store. Apparently the young sales woman was providing him with a variety of options, many in pink, which he didn't like. Then, a random blond woman jumped in and started picking out ties for him, telling him he would look good in pink. He wasn't sure what to think, but apparently just went with the flow as two women tried to pick out his Derby attire. When he finally went to purchase the tie, the sales woman said, "You know who that was, right?" The man said, "No, should I?" The sales woman said, "That's Kate Gosslin. You know, 'Jon and Kate Plus Eight?' The man still didn't know who she was, so he had to call his wife and get the scoop.

So, that's how life is here in Derby City, it's like a weird little game of Six Degrees of Kevin Bacon.

Today is the Kentucky Oaks, the Running of the Fillies. For those who are going, have a great time.

Happy Derby! May the sun shine bright on my old Kentucky home, at least until the winner crosses the finish line. I can't have rain touch the new hat - that would NOT be good.

And Happy Mother's Day to all of the moms out there. Enjoy your day on Sunday - your deserve it!
