As you may well tell from my absence, The Scoop is open for the season, so we’re crazy busy getting everything ready! However, I finally spent some time today pulling photos off my camera from the last few weeks. That includes pics from this year’s Arkansas Derby! We missed the Derby last year because it was the same weekend as our Grand Opening, but this year we just couldn’t stay away. My post from 2012 was fairly popular (apparently my readers love people watching as much as I do), so we’re back for round two!
Soo…what should we do first: Horses? Hats? …let’s flip a coin.
…HATS IT IS!
I’ll just let these gorgeous chapeaus speak for themselves.
And now… HORSIES!
I do not remember this horse’s name, but I put money on it because of the jockey’s fleur de lis silks. I don’t think I won.
Jockey booties & horse patooties.
“No pictures, please. I’m bashful.”
And that’s all for now! I promise—a post of more written content with ACTUAL RECIPES to come soon!
