Pink Derby Day Post

Do you like the pretty pink flowers at Churchill Downs? I have had such a love for the Kentucky Derby since I was a young child that I thoroughly enjoy doing a Pink Saturday post about it! I hope you will visit Beverly and thank her for her hard work to keep all of us on task each week. Thank you Beverly!
I can don my pink Derby shirt and enjoy the race.
Although my derby hat is actually blue I do love this pink one!
Did you place a bet? Are you nervous? Did you, sell the farm, so to speak? I am not a gambler by nature but this The Oaks Lily drink looks refreshing. It contains an ounce of vodka, an ounce of sweet and sour , an ounce of cranberry juice and a splash of triple sec.
Perhaps a cool, tall glass of pink lemonade will refresh you instead.
Did you win? If so hurry over to your ride:
A perfectly pink Hummer limo!

and here is your winner for 2012 ....I'll Have Another!

What fun! ... Can you imagine actually BEING THERE?! Wow.

Must confess, after seeing a couple horses fall in recent years, I can't bring myself to watch the race in real-time. It hurts my heart when any of those gorgeous creates are injured.

"Creatures", I mean. Fingers got ahead of my brain!

Oh that I looked good in a hat. I think the hats are beautiful, though I look silly in one. But, I will take a large glass of the Oaks Lily drink. Mmmmm.

fun pink stuff!
I agree that the Derby is fun, but I have never placed a bet on it.
How fun it would be to be there in my beautiful pink hat sipping my pink drink!
I'll Have Another was certainly a surprise.
