Horsin' Around

Hi there! I just wanted to share a few photos from our little trip to Lexington. We drove by that beautiful horse several times, and I just loved how it reminded me of a teacup. I felt like such a tourist, getting out to take photos (especially since I actually lived in Kentucky for about 8 years!), but I just had to have a picture. Turns out, the horse was labeled 'Teacup'!

We took Kalia to see Keeneland, and although it's not racing season, she seemed to enjoy herself. The grounds are absolutely beeeeeautiful. Remember the movie Seabiscuit?? Well, Keeneland was one of the filming locations.

We also met some old friends for dinner at Saul Good, and I just adored the atmosphere. It was the perfect combination of glitzy chandeliers, red velvet tufted booths, and ornate mirrors. The fondue wasn't bad either!

I hope you're having a good Monday -- this is Kalia's second week of Kindergarten. I really thought I would be fine, since she attended the same school last year for Pre-K...but once I dropped her off, and walked out the door on the first day, I couldn't keep the tears from spilling over. Either it's just the pregnancy hormones, or what they say about sending your kids off to Kindergarten is all true!

On another note, did you watch Design Star last night?! I won't spoil it for you, but I really enjoyed the last two weeks of the show. Oh, and did you see Southern Girl Desserts on The Antonio Treatment last week?! It was fun to see a cupcake shop makeover, and I got some great tips on frosting and decorating cupcakes. Hopefully you can catch it again, if you missed it. I'll be back soon with an award post, and some party inspiration for Kalia's October birthday!


  1. AWWWWW! Don't you miss it??
    We went up to The Ville for a big wedding in June and stopped in Lex for a couple of hours. You forget how pretty it is!

    We're going back in October for the UK-USC game and spending all day @ Keeneland! I cannot wait!

  2. Oooooo, I'm jealous! I can't wait to go back -- sometimes I miss it terribly!!!

  3. I told you that you would love Saul Good!! We need to go there next time you're in town. Miss you!

  4. Es, I would love that! Miss you too!!

  5. These pics made me miss Lex just a little: )
