Derby de Mayo Weekend

Three things I learned this weekend:
 
1. Mint Juleps are gross.
2. Big hats should be a thing.
3. Orb is a stupid name for a horse.
 
Our weekend started out with a way too long trip to Hobby Lobby to get supplies for my derby hat, a quick little dinner date, then wine & hat making. When your man stays up until 2AM, becoming a hot glue gun pro by gluing feathers and flowers all over a big floppy hat for you, he's either gay or a keeper. Mine is a keeper.
 
The hat didn't turn out half bad either!

 
I will just never feel comfortable taking a selfie. It's just never going to happen. Anywho, I woke up without a hangover which ended up being the theme of the weekend and I'm not mad about it. We even decided to decorate because we were in a pretty festive mood
 
 
Have you ever had a Mint Julep? I hadn't and now I never will again. Anyone will tell you that a drink has to be pretty gross in order for me not to drink it. I stuck with vodka/sodas. The party went really well except that I didn't bet on Orb. I thought it was a really dumb name for a horse so I went with Goldencents. Now I'm $6 poorer. Damn it.


Didn't the boys look so cute? I love it.

The night gets fuzzy after the party but I woke up without a hangover again!
Cortney - 2 Vodka - 4,596 (I'm catching up)

I know I said that I wouldn't be partaking in any Cinco de Mayo events but I guess I lied. Sorry I'm not sorry.

 
Cortney - 0 Tequila - 2,672

Woof.
 
Now back to the couch to catch up on what Tamra and Vicki are fighting about now.


 
 Nope. Hung over.

I have never had a mint julep I was just thinking about that this weekend. They sounds pretty awful. And I would say hat making and a trip to hobby lobby make him a keeper for sure.

Orb is a stupid name, I agree. I love your hat though, it turned out great.
And yes, mint juleps suck. Even coming from a kentucky girl who loves bourbon - they are terrible.
