Calling All Derby Lovers

Uncategorized

March 8, 2010

I wish I could play a trumpet right now because I’d play that infamous derby call for horses… it’s my favorite time of year, spring which means STEEPLECHASE! Oh well, here’s another version to get you excited:

It’s official!! My spot is renewed, tickets are reserved, and the party planning has commenced for the best day of the year, or so I think =) I am looking forward to cookout with friends at our new house the night before, make loads and loads of jello shots {a MUST and annual tradition}, and have one jam-packed full o’ fun day to dress up in spring dresses and big hats!! Just crossing our fingers for no rain/mudpits for this year’s festivities…now, onto the hunt to find “the dress”–here are some of my favorite frameworthy pics from previous years:

  1. LOVE steeplechase races and THE DERBY…you can't beat it 🙂

    Since I am way up here in MN I have never gone to the Derby, but my best friend and her hubs throgh a DERBY party every year ~ dresses and big hats mandatory! It is pretty much a holiday!

    I have started my search for my derby dress too!

    That looks like such a GREAT time. How fun. I've always wanted to wear a derby hat, but I've never been. Maybe I'll have to host a party this year. Would it be totally crazy to wear a Derby Hat in my backyard??? haha

  7. Natalie, where on earth did you find that black and white dress? It is absolutely adorable. I am in awe of that and your white and yellow one too. You are too cute.

  12. Brittany says:

    You are just adorable! I've always wanted to go to the Kentuckey Derby so I could wear a hat like that 🙂

  13. Okay, friend – I can't even lie….I'm super jealous!!

    The hubby and I have the Kentucky Derby (or some derby!!!) on our list of things to do before we have a baby.

    I NEED to wear an adorable dress and a big hat some day! How very, very fun —— and how awesome that you'll get to throw the party at your new house! 🙂

  14. Cute pics! I love Steeplechase!
