Believe it or not, I’d never been able to experience before the exhilaration of live horse racing! Until recently, that is… Mark and I headed out for a day at the tracks, which included losing every bet we placed, 5 very watery dirty Bombay Sapphire martinis, a picture taken alongside a horse and jockey in the winner’s circle (which has yet to arrive at our house..sigh) and an opportunity for me to wear my favorite hat and new midi dress from Asos! Side note, I am slowly finding that everything I purchased from their website is at least one size too large (this dress included), which is good and bad, of course. I’m losing weight, woohoo!, but I’d also like for my clothes to fit properly. A little bow belt from F21 helped at least cinch me in at the waist.

All in all, we had fun, despite our losses (maybe $20), and would go back for another little Sunday getaway.
