Derby Hats!

Anyone who knows anything about the Derby knows that it’s all about the horse racing HATS!

So without further adieu here’s a number of the hats I saw at the Derby.

Let me know if you like the post in the comments, because I have waaaay more hat pictures I can post if you want!

Gail Simmons & Derby Day

It’s hard to believe it’s already a week ago that I was at Churchill Downs. The weekend was filled with so many activities, one of which was to meet celebrity Top Chef judge Gail Simmons and have breakfast with her the morning of the Kentucky Derby.

If going to the Kentucky Derby is on your bucket list, I encourage you to find a way to make it happen. Everything about the event is filled with “E’s”; Energy, Excitement and Exhilaration. From the crowds to the horses, it’s undeniably a unique experience.

Wow, I can’t believe that I already leave for the Kentucky Derby tomorrow! There are a few things that are iconic to the Derby; The Hot Brown, a sandwich made at The Brown where we’ll be staying, the hats, and Mint Juleps of course!
