so exciting! we have friend who owns a horse that’s running in the Kentucky Derby!

The. Kentucky. Derby. That’s big doin’s around here.

We’ve known Pops for, like, ever… since college (and since I’m old .. that’s a long time ago 😉  ) Pops is one of 25 people that own a horse called Noble’s Promise, and he’s running in the 136th running of the Kentucky Derby. Tomorrow morning, we’re hustling the kids to school and making a mad dash to Churchill Downs to see Pops and catch a glimpse of thoroughbred greatness. I can’t wait!


A Christmas Story

Funniest Christmas movie ever.

I’d say it’s the best Christmas movie ever … but being the true Maysville girl that I am, that honor has to go to White Christmas. (starring Maysville’s own Rosemary Clooney)

to-do list

it’s December 1 and the to-do list is LONG … it’s time to get my lay ass off the couch be productive!

some things that need to be done:

  1. Christmas Cards: I need to edit pics from the family photo session this weekend, and hope one is decent for my fab card design. cry if it isn’t 😦 actually, if it isn’t … the college boy will be home in plenty of time to try again. gotta love digital cameras – a procrastinator’s best friend!
  2. decorating: one tree is up and partially decorated. that’s it. there are countless rubbermaid tubs scattered about filled with Santas, snowmen, Magi, and assorted Marys, Josephs, and baby Jesuses. I should have started decorating right after Halloween.
  3. Halloween Candy: get rid of it. It’s December 1. Candy corn season is officially OVER.
  4. Shopping: thought I’d do a little Cyber Monday shopping … but its hard when sites crash. good grief.
  5. Advent calendar: must get it out TODAY. Can’t pretend tomorrow is December 1.

wordless wednesday (sort of)
