How was your Cinco de Mayo friends? Nursin’ a tequila hangover? Lucky for me, my vice is vino and not tequila
This weekend we have another celebration — a combination Birthday / 137th Kentucky Derby party.
Because why not combine the two? There’s a dress code for this party, however. Ladies must wear a sundress and hat. Theme party? Don’t mind if I do. And since my dog is a “lady” and we plan on brining her, I will surely make sure she is wearing a hat (so what if it’s from her Halloween costume).
I offered to bake something for the shindig and would you believe I was handily turned down! The host says he wants all his menu to be consistent and doesn’t want me tainting it with my renegade baking (yes, I jest, but this is close to what he said..haha, right K?). So we shall come equipped with vino since what derby doesn’t have vino?
I know nothing about the horses racing, but figured it’d be fun to find one to root for. And since there wasn’t a horse named after a shoe, I went with a horse named after one of my favorite types of pets: Derby Kitten.
I have no idea of her stats and I don’t care. Her name is cute! Here’s a list of the other racers:
- Animal Kingdom
- Brilliant Speed
- Comma to the Top
- Decisive Moment
- Dialed In
- Master of Hounds
- Midnight Interlude
- Mucho Macho Man
- Pants on Fire
- Stay Thirsty
- Toby’s Corner
- Twice the Appeal
- Uncle Mo
- Watch Me Go
I gotta tell ya, I’m also loving the names Pants on Fire and Stay Thirsty.
Play along, which horse are you rooting for?
