Late Derby

So I am so late in posting this but, I have a genuinely perfect reason for being the worst blogger this past week....my sister-in-law gave birth to my nephew!  I have never been an aunt before so, I am overly excited (Really, I am.  I think I scared her with my excitement).

So, I reiterate, I am super late on this post.  This was what I wore the Friday before the KY Derby for Derby Day at work.  As part of Derby Day, we were encouraged to wear a derby hat.  I was so excited for this that the day they sent the communication to our office, I went to Hobby Lobby at lunch picked up supplies!  I used to make a lot of hats in my drama kid years since costuming was generally the actors' responsibility.  Most people would rent costumes but, I usually made mine and hats were my thing.

(PS the bird's name is Carlos.  Carlos the Peacock!)

Oh congratulations! We definitely understand the lack of blogging! I love love love Carlos. Peacocks are so lovely - whether real or not!
