Julia and Heather looking like true Southern Belles and betting fools! I had a blast running around with them even though they were winning big time and I was on the losing end.

Derby Day with my Girls!
On Saturday, a few of my new and wonderful friends went to Colonial Downs! Thanks to Julia, this entire event was planned! Hats were crafted with care, dresses blew in the wind, heels clicked and $2 bets were placed! Is it best to go by odds or the best named horse?!? Odds generally wins even though I rarely stuck to a strict rule of straight odds. I am a follow your gut kinda girl and it totally backfired on me. I bet $20 and only won $4.80. Shucks. I will totally go again though and I think I will follow the odds route this time. I hate writing that because I like to take a chance on the underdogs and I just love names like Lilly Leggs, Lipstick Traces, Sassy's Dream, Unbridled Music Fly by Phil, and Putthebabiesdown!!! That last one was the most loudly screamed name of the day!
