Vintage sprinklers, Weddings, Horse Racing and Nascar

Yesterday was so filled and fun packed. We were supposed to get rain, but didn't, so our first yard saling trip of the season happened. We hit about 10 of them. Met some funny people, my hubby ended up holding hands with a very old lady whose hands were cold. One lady asked me if I had come earlier in the day (I hadn't) and claimed I had a doppelganger out there. I found a couple of nice finds: a vintage yellow metal sprinkler and a set of porcelain mugs in yellow and brown for my bathroom. I love going to estate sales and being able to go inside the houses to see the layout. Then I come home and declare my home to be the best! :) 

Then I had taped E!'s coverage of the Royal Wedding and spent some time watching all the festivities minus the sound, I just can't stand all the stupid and lame commentary they supply while we are watching the lovely young lady get out of her car. I was so thrilled that during the actual ceremony they shut up and just let us hear what was happening. I am happy for the couple and that everything went off with out a hitch. But I have to say, the standout outfit for me was the Queen's! Oh how I love that color combination of green and purple! She rocked it!

Next up, the Preakness Stakes! I love a good horse race.  I was hoping for Justify just like everyone else in the world. Not that everyone likes him, but that since he won the first race of the Triple Crown they want to see him win the second. And it was a good race, fog and all. Now on this show, they do a great job with the commentary and I love hearing all about the jockeys and the horses and the tradition. But I am curious, what came first, the song Oh Tannenbaum or Maryland my Maryland....LOL

We finished the day with breakfast for dinner and NASCAR. Both were a treat. All in all, a beautiful and fun Saturday. Now today I need to get to work in the yard, and no more TV watching. It is another gorgeous Montana day and I can't wait to get outside in it. :) Always, Kit

I wore my tiara all thru the wedding!....LOL

Always fun doings at your place, Kit! I loved the Queen's outfit too, that purple touch was so bold and stunning. Everyone looked great, I enjoyed seeing the guests' clothes etc.
The sprinkler---yellow! What a great find.

Sounds good cept I'm trying to figure why you need coffee mugs in your bathroom? Unless you are one of those who has a coffee maker in the bathroom? After reading about the "spray " after each flush I ingest nothing in there!!! lol

We only watched the highlights of the wedding. I'm with you on the commentary...it drives me crazy! Oh, we love to watch the three horse races. Of course we were rooting for Justify, but the field was so small. I have never seen so few horses run in such a huge race. But I admit I hate to see the races run in the rain. I think this is the first foggy day race I ever saw. We have been having far too many rainy days. Why aren't my flowers growing as fast as the weeds?
xx, Carol

Thank goodness we can record programs or access them other ways; otherwise, I would never get to watch anything! I have a hard time being inside when the Montana spring weather is so delightful! Enjoy the rest of your week, Kit!

Lots of fun going on at your place! Love the wearing of the tiara for the wedding. I, too, was so glad the commentary was stopped for the ceremony - it was beautiful to watch.

You always manage to make everything a celebration of some sort. :)
