It’s Tuesday, but I don’t post on Mondays, so you’re getting my weekend thoughts late.
We had a fun weekend. I accidentally spent a lot of time with my family but that’s never a bad thing. Haha.
A quick recap: Dinner with my parents on Friday (an anniversary treat to us). Prom prep for my cousin & derby viewing on Saturday. A bridal shower (I attended) and baby shower (K attended; it was co-ed) on Sunday.
And now a few thoughts on the weekend…
Prom and high school are such a huge deal when you’re young. I tend to forget that. This summer marks TEN years since my graduation and my head is in such a different place than it was a decade ago. My 17 year old cousin went to prom this year and she looked incredible. She’s a very low-maintenance, jeans and t-shirt, athletic kind of person. Seeing her in a dress with her hair done and a full face of make-up kind of floored all of us.
I watched the derby for the first time ever. I even placed a dollar bet on Long Range Toddy (Stephanie’s rec on her Thursday post, lol). I know NOTHING about horse racing or the rules, but here’s my opinion anyway…
I don’t have a problem with the objection or the disqualification if those are the hard rules. I have a problem with the team that filed the objection… Country House wouldn’t have gotten second if Maximum Security hadn’t left his lane. He not only benefited from the move, but he benefitted from calling the winner out. Meanwhile, the three or four horses/jockeys/teams that were cut off AND could’ve been seriously hurt, didn’t file the objection… even though it happened to them.
I just think it was sneaky & opportunistic in a bad way.
And that’s my 2 cents on that. I was also surrounded by dogs all night so I wasn’t actually mad about anything.
I know it happened on Monday, but the newest royal arrived and it just makes me so giddy. I love that family. And Harry’s interview was the hands down cutest thing I’ve seen all year.
He can’t stop smiling and giggling and I love it.
I had more thoughts, but I’m already late getting this posted. So instead of my rambling, tell me about your weekend! Do you love the royals, too? Or can you barely recall the Queen’s first name? Derby thoughts?
