What I'm Loving Wednesday

Happy hump day, y'all! Hope everyone is safe and sound after another round of scary storms. Unfortunately, there are more to come. Please, stay safe. I've decided to link up again for What I'm Loving Wednesday. Here we go:

1.) Kentucky Derby is just over a week away! All Kentuckians LOVE their horse racing, and I am true to that trait. I enjoy reading up on the jockeys, owners, trainers and examining the build of each horse. I giggle at the names and drool at the perfectly designed silks. This year, I'm LOVING that soo many are wearing pink and green! While I haven't done extensive research on the contenders, at first glance, I like Midnight Interlude and Dialed In! I'll give my official picks next week.

2.) The ROYAL WEDDING is two days away. I can HARDLY wait. I can't wait to share my Friday Fancies! William and Kate. Yes, PLEASE!

3.) Books. I've been a bookworm in the worst possible way lately. I can't help it. I get pulled in and can't let go. I'm on the last two Dot Frank Books and then, on to the classics. I've seen every body's list of what every girl must read, but what is your opinion? Tell me your top five classics for my consideration. I'll use your advice and then share in a later post!

4.) My itty-bitty cousins. I know I've shared this once already, but they are ANGELS. I Love them and their tiny hands and tiny toes. I sure wish I could spend more time with them!

5.) Burgers. I know I should be loving something like salads, but all I can think about is a good juicy burger. I blame it on the delicious Bison Burger I had a few weeks back. The perfection still lingers on my tongue. At least I haven't eaten lots of burgers...just dreamed.

Not to be Debbie Downer, but there is one thing I'm not loving. I sent my sissy a nice little gift from my visit to Keeneland and she has YET to receive it. It has been a week. I'm hoping I'm just impatient and someone didn't STEAL it. The packing did have Keeneland all over it. Keep your fingers crossed!

Until next time, may your day be full of magnolias, bourbon and lots of daily joy!

  6. I hope your sister gets her gift!! I can't wait for the royal wedding!

  7. This is such a great list..we have tons in common, so this is going to be a long comment (brace yourself, ha!)
    1.Currently typing this from the bathroom-- we're under a tornado warning AGAIN...
    2.I love horse names too, my mom grew up on a horse farm and her name is Tyler, her favorite horse was named Tippecanoe and so when they would show they would be called "Tippecanoe and Tyler too" like the slogan from when John Tyler ran for president
    3.Books, I love books! My suggestions off the top of my head are: Firefly Lane by Kristin Hannah, The Same Sweet Girls by Cassandra King, The Help by Kathryn Stockett; and A Walk in the Woods by Bill Bryson
    4. Finally, I'm a huge cutie/kid and burger fan myself! There's nothing like a good burger, especially grilled during the summertime!

  8. Stopping by from WILW. I'm a fellow Nashvillian also! Great blog. I'm following :)
