It was time for a girl’s weekend! Shopping & ponies were on the docket.
We are professional outlet shoppers now. Once we got there, we were ready to split off and meet back up in 2 hours. We decided to all tackle the Shoppes of the Bluegrass in the same direction, so we’d just wave and touch base as we passed each other going in and out of stores.
The real reason for the trip got us doll’ed up for a white party event.
Downs After Dark @ Churchill Downs!
We decided to get the VIP Courtyard tickets for a more exclusive event. But we couldn’t find section 119. Then CM and I had to find the ladies room, so we told the girls we’d catch up. After finally finding section 118, I figured we were close enough. Went up to the ushers and they took our tickets, gave us bracelets and said “119 is around the corner”. So we went. No 119. Found the next usher and told her our story, she said “I’ll take you.” Next thing you know we are in box 19, not section 119. Um. Ok. I turn to CM and said “Act like you know what you are doing. Act like we are supposed to be here.” Lady asks if this looks familiar. Yes, yes it does.
I waved the other girls in and we had a blast. There was only 1 older couple in there with us that probably knew we weren’t where we belonged but no one else was there so I think they enjoyed having people to talk to. A look at the Courtyard, where are real seats were.
Selfie minus the stick.
As the races came to a close, I went down to the track to soak it all in. Get up close!
Here they come!
Highlight was seeing American Pharoah parade in front of us. Legendary.
