I woke up Saturday morning...
after sleeping in a bit...
then I got busy on my To Do list...
as a reward for getting so much done...
Hubby and I went to....
Lone Star Park...for Derby Day....
 
 the Kentucky Derby....
well we might not be from Kentucky...
but let me tell you Texans know how to celebrate...
I spent more time people watching...
than horse watching....
 the ladies in their hats...
being a hat girl myself...
I was having a blast looking at all of them...
I even wore one of my big hats...
 
 it was very crowded...
placing a bet...or getting a drink or something to eat...
took a really long time....
 
 this couple reminded me of old time Hollywood...
I know he must have been hot...
it was in the 90's...
but he sure didn't show it...
 
 there was lot's of picture taking going on...
so it wasn't hard for me to snap a few photos...
well you know me lot's of photos...
 
we had intended to stay for the Kentucky Derby Race...
it was going to be on the big screen...
but Hubby and I were hungry...and tired of the crowds..
so we headed out to have a nice steak dinner...
today we got to sleep in a bit...
then I got busy staining my two picnic tables...
it looked like such a easy little job...
well...it took some time...about 2 hours each table...
another thing marked off my list...
Hubby managed to get some things off his list too...
and helped me with a couple of projects...
I will be sharing them this week...
trying to make a ugly fence...look a little nicer...
now to rest and relax...
before another busy week begins...

more fun than a to do list for sure and i have a to do that is longer than my arm. 4 things on it require driving and leaving the house, they are what i will do today, but no pretty hats to look at on my list

Sounds like you had a fun and productive weekend! I LOVE the hat photos! I want to go to the KY Derby just so I can wear a big fancy hat. I'm from KY so you think it wouldn't be too much of a problem getting there :)

The lady with the yellow hat - at first, I thought she was a porcelain statue, the way the sun was catching her! And the couple from the past - I remember one very hot day at church when I was a kid - the minister said it was okay for the gentlemen to remove their suit jackets. Remember when everyone dressed up to go to church?

What fun fun fun! I love all the hats! You are more than welcome to use my photo on your Facebook page. I didn't make the watermelon teapots but I know the maker won't mind either.
