Derby Weekend in Pictures

It was a good time.

My husband and I looked very stylish.

I apologize if you are blinded by my lily-white legs. And even when those shoes started to hurt my feet, I was still happy to be where we were.

It’s fun to try new things.

For the record, we were not there on Derby Day. We went the day before, and saw The Kentucky Oaks, which is the filly-only race. And lots of other races.

We had great seats. That is the starting gate for the Oaks.

The next day, we got off to a late, lazy start. We only made it to one distillery. But it was a good one!

Left to right: Maker’s Mark original, Maker’s Mark 46, Maker’s Mark Mint Julep (only available in Kentucky).

And Dan got to hand dip his very own bottle.

Good friends, good drinks, good times. I may have to write a bucket list someday if only to put this past weekend’s activities on it to cross them out.

When’s the last time you did something for the first time?

  1. Nice. Whiskey and horses. I couldn’t be more jealous. Next time I have a mint julep will be the first time.

    Last time I did something for the first time? Hmmm.

    I really can’t come up with a thing. I made kale chips last week. Crap, that’s depressing. I’m in a rut.
