Happy Friday, friends! I don’t know about you, but this has felt like the longest week ever! Of course, the fact that it has been rainy with gray skies all week hasn’t helped. I am so glad today is Friday and the fact that it’s a half day at work for me makes it all the better! We only have one thing on the agenda for this weekend – de-clutter our house! Why you may ask? Well, we finally pulled the trigger and have officially listed our condo for sale! We are so excited and are praying for the right buyer to come quickly! We met with our real estate broker on Wednesday and signed all of the paperwork so now we wait! We have a photographer coming on Saturday to take pictures so we have very little time to get everything ready (hence the half day today). Whatever your plans are for the weekend, I hope you have a fabulous one!
Today I am linking up with Christina, April, Darci, and Natasha for another edition of Five on Friday! With the Kentucky Derby on Saturday, I thought it would be fun to look at all things Derby! I was actually born in Louisville and both of my parents grew up there. Most of my extended family still lives there today. Even with all of my Kentucky roots, I have yet to actually go to the Derby (I know, I know). It’s on my bucket list and every year my sister and I say we’re going to go, but something always comes up. One year we will be there! For now, I can watch on TV and lust after all of the colorful dresses and big hats! Here are five things essential for the Kentucky Derby:
The dress! It’s all about the fashion at the Derby! From classic seersucker to bright, bold prints – nothing is too big of a statement at the Derby. Brands like Lily Pulitzer and Vineyard Vines definitely come to mind. Here are a few of my favorite looks:
