This weekend was another busy one but not as crazy busy, as some of the past weekends have been! I started off the weekend by going and getting my hair cut and colored. It was time for a good/different change and I went with a dark hair color and shorter cut. I love it – what do you think?
After that it was time to prepare for Kentucky Derby weekend! We were invited to a friend’s house for a derby party on Saturday and they suggested wearing Derby attire, including bow ties for men and hats for ladies – with a contest for the best of each! I’m not a hat person and especially not a big hat w/ a big ol’ flower on it, type of person – but I tried my best!
If you are ever looking to make a quick derby hat – this is what you will need: Hot glue, One sun hat (I found one at Kohls & Gap), some ribbon, rhinestone/pearls and fake flowers – the bigger, the better with all of the above! I put it all together and I’m pretty happy with how it came out – AND I won best hat at the party – pretty fun!
I made Lennox a hat as well from an old dress-up Easter hat – added a flower & clip on butterfly and she was happy!
We had never been to a Kentucky Derby party before, so it was a fun event! We all bet a few bucks on different horses, but we didn’t win – oh well! We did get to try Mint Julips, which are not at all as I expected – but fun none the less!
Lennox wanted the party to go on forever I think, she had so much fun with all her friends – both new and old. They had a bounce house in the back yard, music playing, pin the tail on the donkey, food, FROZEN, etc – they had blast.
One of her all time best buds, Gabby, doesn’t go to school with her anymore, and she got to spend the day with her – they were so happy together!
Sunday, we had a day at home doing some chores, family breakfast and then we headed to the spray park for the first time this summer season with Lennox. She was so excited she wouldn’t even take a nap! The temperature got to 96 in DFW so it was a HOT one. I thought the water would be FREEZING still, but it wasn’t too bad and the kids didn’t mind at all!
So that is our weekend – how was yours? I bet it didn’t get to 96 degrees where you live!!
