Sure the April showers are well underway, but all I can think about is the fact that SPRING IS HERE and so are all the wonderful events that accompany it. Some of my favorite events take place in spring and countless memories have been made over the years. I LOVE the fact that when the weather warms up everyone is out and about and it is NEVER difficult to get your pals to play. Today I’m guest blogging over at Texas Prep . Be sure to stop by to check out some of my favorite warm-weather outfits! In the meantime, here are some of my favorite spring happenings:
Being a Kentucky girl, I think this is a given. For three weeks during the spring and fall, southerners make the trek to Lexington to take part in viewing one of the most demanding sports around-horse racing. Much like the Kentucky Derby, attendees put on their Sunday best and socialize like there’s no tomorrow. If you like to take advantage of the warm spring weather, Keeneland is for you. Most will show up early to tailgate (and sip bourbon) prior to races. If socializing isn’t your thing, the pure beauty and history of the park is reason enough to show up early. I am looking forward to celebrating spring, (and hopefully a national championship) next weekend with all of my girlfriends and their beaus.
Okay, so it might not be an AMERICAN tradition, but American’s have certainly embraced this holiday. Go ahead and admit that on May 5th you have-or plan to be- parked in a booth or on the patio of your favorite local Mexican restaurant sippin’ margs and dining on a tasty burrito.
From Tuscaloosa to Austin and all the way in between, football fans travel to their respective college campus’ to cheer on the newest additions to their team and see what old players have in store for the upcoming season. Spring football is a great way to get outside, catch a few rays and test out any new tailgate gear you may have picked up over the holidays.
That’s right! Spring brings with it, WEDDING SEASON! If you’re anything like me, the last few years, or maybe even for the first time, weddings have your calendar packed JAM-FULL of festivities. The great thing about weddings is that each joyous occasion warrants a new dress (or at least the thought)-Your friends only get married once! If you’re not a fan of weddings, use the event as an opportunity to catch up with old friends or visit that town you’ve been dying to travel to.
