Happy Mother’s Day!

My mom is awesome. There’s so much good in her I can’t even begin to tell you. 
I mean… she raised me and I turned out pretty kickass. 
; ) 
I am everything I am because of her. 
Happy Mother’s Day, Mom! 
And this awesome video is for all the awesome mothers out there
(and anybody else that’s in a “mom” role) 
from Kid President: 

Also sending out lovely thoughts to those who have lost their mothers
and those who long to be mothers but aren’t:
those dealing with infertility, miscarriages, or have experienced the loss of a child.
Today is SO great for most, but SO hard for others.
*hugs*

B Party!

My cousin, Allison got married a few weeks ago
and I’m just now posting the photos from her B Party.
Better late than never, yes? 
Dinner. 
Drinks. 
Gifts. 
and Horse Racing.
Just your average B Party. 
; ) 
Me and my momma! 

Other cousins
Emily, Me, Malissa!

I don’t even know what this was
but it had Pomegranate in it. 
And it was delicious. 

Mom and aunts acting silly

Pinkies up. 
#civilized

Trying to look at every gift
except the dirty ones… haha

There’s no telling…

And on to Churchill Downs! 

The four girls. 
Love my cousins! 

And congrats to the bride! 

I was out of town for her wedding but was able to watch the ceremony
via Skype
from my computer in my hotel room,
to Malissa’s iPhone. 
Yay for technology! 
Love you, Al!

Happy Mother’s Day!

My mother is the ish. 
I was going to do this big sappy post, 
but as I was looking for photos of us, 
I couldn’t help but realize how much we change our hair color. 
So that’s what this post will entail. 
Sweet, I know.

These are the various shades we’ve chosen over the years:  
My natural blonde (with some really bad blonde) roots. 

Ha! 
But seriously folks… 
I love my mom more than anything in the world. 
She’s never been anything but supportive of everything I’ve ever done…
even when it’s involved things like moving far away from her. 
Thanks for everything, mom. I LOVE YOU! 
And here’s a video that may make you cry. 
Just in time for today. 
And the summer olympics. 
Oh and this one too. 
I can’t wait to be a mom 
…one day. 
That wasn’t me telling you I was preggo. 
’cause I’m not. 
That would be awkward.

Big Events in the Bluegrass…

I’m not sure if you guys are aware, but it’s a pretty wild time in the Bluegrass this time of year… 

First, yesterday was my mother’s birthday. 
To the best woman I know, Happy Birthday!

Second, Derby is in the air! 

The big race will take place in 5 weeks and the opening ceremonies will kick off in 3 weeks! I participated in one of the many fashion events that happen this month – Calospa’s Winning Derby Looks event, benefitting Churchill Down’s Backside Learning Center.  Get ready for hat season, ladies…

and lastly, The UK/UL Game!

The two biggest (and best) college basketball teams in the state, who happen to also be HUGE rivals, University of Louisville and University of Kentucky, are playing tomorrow in the NCAA Final Four. It’s kind of a big deal here.

Approximately half of my known friends/family are heading to NOLA for the games and I’m a little jealous. But only a little, because UK and UL fans are known to rumble a little bit when they’re playing each other. Especially when there’s alcohol involved. Did you guys hear about the two guys that got into a fight while they were each receiving dialysis? Wow. So I’ll be watching safely, from Buffalo, NY.

Happy Friday!
