You can take the girl out of Kentucky, but you can’t take the Kentucky outta the girl

Never have I ever lived outside of the state of Kentucky. I’ve lived like, four different places within the state, but my address has never had a zip code that didn’t start with a 4. I’m not complaining. At all. I wouldn’t have it any other way. I love this state – my city, especially.Continue reading “You can take the girl out of Kentucky, but you can’t take the Kentucky outta the girl”

I see (more) famous people

OK, so where were we? Oh. EMILIO!! “The Mighty Ducks man, I swear to God.” If you know what that quote’s from then I love you. If not, I have a movie to recommend to you. Anyways. So we met Emilio. And his friend whose name I really don’t remember but she was super niceContinue reading “I see (more) famous people”

I see famous people

For a long time, the closest I had ever been to a “real celebrity” (you’ll understand the quotes in a second) was that one time at Freedom Hall before the Backstreet Boys concert in my early teens when their opener, THE Aaron Carter, ran along the barricades of fans outside before the show giving highContinue reading “I see famous people”

In the midst of all the fun at the Derby party on Saturday, there was a volleyball tournament. Seriously, I think we played 14 games.

They didContinue reading “I only hang out with/am related to talented people”

The best day

It’s my favorite day all year. My family and several of my friends get together the first Saturday in May for betting, eating, drinking, cigar smoking, cornhole playing, volleyballing, chilling and yelling at the television once every hour. It’s the Kentucky Derby and I love every second of it. The weeks leading up to itContinue reading “The best day”

You don’t even KNOW

It won’t be long now. Until what, you ask? Until my absolute favorite time of year and the time that makes me proud to be a Kentuckian, especially a Louisvillian and I get super-competitive and lose a lot of money. OK so the competitive thing is kind of a lie. I’m always competitive. To theContinue reading “You don’t even KNOW”

It’s the most wonderful time of the year…

The other day I made my Facebook status say “anyone who calls Christmas the ‘most wonderful time of the year’ has obviously never lived in Louisville or experienced Derby season.” Truer words have never been spoken, seriously. I have lived here the majority of my life and the first Saturday in May has always beenContinue reading “It’s the most wonderful time of the year…”
