Things I learned over derby

As always for this fine Monday, I am here to link up with Katie Que and tell you about all the things I learned this weekend while celebrating Bradley's favorite Holiday aka the Kentucky Derby

//Chocolate chip cookies taste better with Bourbon and sea salt in them.


//A horse with the name A Rod will never treat you right and is totally overrated.

//I am really good at making messes while preparing to host a party. Flour and Bacon grease were poured ALL OVER MY KITCHEN FLOOR on separate occasions. 

//Brad takes his Derby outfit very seriously.

//I am bad at remembering to take photos when I am enjoying the people around me. 

//I am not sorry for not taking many photos while co-hosting an awesome party. (also not sorry for using the word not too many times in this sentence.) 





//The best way to top off celebrating the Derby is honoring Cinco De Mayo and getting Mexican food. Yum!

Cheers to the Derby!

Since you envied my brown and gold Yuba City High School spandex at practice so much, I figured you should have bet on the pony from good ole YC!

Brad's outfit is on point. Is that something he bought for the occasion or something he had in his closet? And I bet you didn't know that today is National Chocolate Chip Cookie Day (because there is a national day for everything apparently)
