Spring in Kentucky

I am happy it is FINALLY Spring for several reasons. Keeneland, dogwood tree's, warmer weather, Derby parties,flip flops, 26 days of work left AND I want to wear a dress that looks like this

Summer 2008 Social Butterfly Reecey Dress Solid brought to you by: Lilly Pulitzer®
from my favorite store in the entire world (Lilly Pulitzer.) The new summer collection just came out and it is true Lilly fashion with bright colors and bows. I wish I had this on right now sitting poolside at a party.Or with a cute hat at the Derby. Much better than my work outfit I am wearing now. Khaki pants with finger paint and dirt!

Green Thumb

Craig and I decided that we want to start a garden at his house. I will keep you updated on our green thumb abilities. When I went to Charleston I was inspired by all the beautiful gardens and homes. I would like our garden to look like this
   or this

High aspirations I know. I will be happy if we
 can actually plant a flower and keep it alive!

Jenna's Brunch

Saturday we had a brunch for Jenna. What could be better than yummy food, Keeneland Spring Meet and my best friends?Megan and I had so much fun planning the shower. We really think we should quit teaching and become party planners/caterers!! We made smoked salmon bagels, country ham biscuts, fruit salad, heart shaped pimento cheese sandwiches, mini cheesecake bites and more!! We surprised her with a monogrammed beach bag filled with presents. 

We had the best time! Wish we all lived in the same city.
