Ride On (A Little Faster) Curlin!

What. A. Weekend.




Whitley // Lindsay // Erin // Me! // Natalie, our fabulous Cottonelle host!

My flight got back to Dallas pretty late last night, so I just wanted to post a few pictures from the weekend, with a full recap coming later in the week! I'm so glad I decided to make the executive decision to ditch the heels before I even left the hotel because boy did we do a lot of walking! From the Cottonelle green room where celebrities stopped to freshen up before hitting the red carpet, to the actual red carpet, to the terrace level bathroom sponsorships that Cottonelle hosted, to the stunning view we took in on the 5th floor... all the way to section 111 where we watched the greatest two minutes in sports. My horse, Ride on Curlin, must have forgotten our deal we worked out. I bet on him, he wins and I split the winnings from my $5 bet. Thanks so much for the 7th place finish, sir.

Any who, I won't spill too much right now, but here are some quick photos from my camera roll!



And since my flight wasn't until 6:30pm, so I even got to meet Kali and Whitney for a blogger brunch on Sunday at the cutest place I think I've ever been to, Shakespeare & Co.! Would you believe I ordered pizza?!!? 






Ok, I'm now off to find water, fruit and vegetables, my body deserves that right now! I'll be back later in the week with the recap that this weekend deserves!

  5. You look so fabulous both days! I was majorly upset when the British side of my family never mandated fascinators for any weddings - I would have been so down for that.
