Ahh, it’s so nice to be home. After an awful delay at Philly airport, I finally made it back to Ann Arbor, where my mom had dinner waiting: steak, corn, salad, and cantaloupe for dessert. While my belly is nice and full I thought I’d give a recap of the fun in the sun we had yesterday at the Foxfield races 🙂
6am: Alarm clock goes off. After groaning and snoozing for about 10 more minutes I forced myself out of bed so I could take a shower and curl my hair (I knew it’d eventually straighten outside but I wanted to make an effort). My plan was to wear my hair in a side pony with a flower ponytail holder that way I could wear my hair off my neck but still look nice with my big hat on.
7am: Load up car to drive to my friend’s apt. In went: 2 cases of beer, cooler with lemonade and vodka, redbulls, cold cut platter with sub rolls, bag full of sunscreen, camera (which I FORGOT in the car, can you believe it??), wallet, etc.
7:30am: Enjoy big mimosa at my friend’s apartment before leaving. Take off for the field (about 10 miles from Cville)
8am: arrive at field only to find that we can’t enter until 9am. Fill time with more drinking…
9am: one of first cars in, we park easily and start the trek to our plot
9:30am: Tent is up, food and drinks are out. Let’s get this party started!
11am: walk through the hundreds of drunk undergrads to check out the cigar tent (we got one)…
And the hats…
And the Vineyard Vines tent for free swag…
12pm: back to our plot for a group pic
12:30pm: time to get down with beer pong, corn hole, and such
3pm: Sun, drinks, good food & friends, and maybe some toys (bubbles!!!!) = feeling good
3:30pm: Actually remember about the horse races and walk the 10yards to the rail to check it out
4pm +: Day has been so much fun! Picture of some of the partying in the infield where our plot is
