Fave Things Thursday!!

I LOVE horse racing and this Saturday is the Kentucky Derby. Last year I picked 1st, 2nd and 4th. I never bet though. I've never even been to a real track. I don't like crowds. but I LOVE the Derby and never miss it..so this Thursdays fave thing is the 135th running of the Kentucky Derby!!!!

Here we have the potential front runner..LOL..

You cannot celebrate a Kentucky Derby without a mint julep...since I don't drink this scented candle could do the trick!\

Great picks as usual! The one and only time I went to a race track I was so preoccupied by the fabulous breakfast buffet that I forgot to bet on anything :)

Hi! Thanks for featuring my painting! You've got a lot of great picks there! Hope everybody enjoys the Derby. I know I'll be watching!

Gorgeous picks!! I'm going to a steeplechase on Sunday, can't wait. Way more exciting than flat track racing.
