Happy Friday from the Bluegrass State – otherwise known as My Old Kentucky Home.
There are lots of things happening in and around our beautiful state this weekend and I wanted to share them on my Five on Friday link-up.
1. The Madness Continues
This beautiful shot occurred Sunday evening by Aaron Harrison to place our beloved Kentucky Wildcats into the NCAA Final Four this weekend. You will find our state glued to televisions on Saturday night (and of course Monday because we WILL win). We love our basketball in Kentucky and a win will be our 9th NCAA Championship.
2. It’s Racing Season
If there is something we love almost as much as basketball in Kentucky – it’s horses. Today marks opening day at Keeneland, the local track here in Lexington. I find it one of the most beautiful places in the world. We are less than a month away from the Kentucky Derby (and I know you have heard of that).
3. Maker’s Mark Commemorative Bottle
Every year, Maker’s Mark Bourbon Distillery (another Kentucky original) releases a commemorative bottle. Many of the past bottles have featured Kentucky sports stars and this year the second year Kentucky football coach Mark Stoops is featured on his own bottle. All of the money made from these bottles goes toward charity each year.
4. Spring Has Arrived
I am finally having blooms from the flowers in my yard and we are experiencing somewhat warmer weather (as I write this we are having a spring thunderstorm). Dare I say we have seen the last of snow?
5. Spring Hair
It’s not the best picture – but this week I’ve gone lighter with my hair. Warmer weather = lighter hair. It’s amazing how color changes how you feel.
Thanks for stopping by and don’t forget to visit some others from the link-up.
Have a Great Weekend!!
