TGIF!

Thank goodness it's Friday!!  Hope everyone is having a lovely start to the weekend!  Today's post is a bit scatterbrained, so bear with me!

First things, first.  My heart goes out to all of those affected by the tornadoes that have ravished the southeast lately.  The death toll is now near 300 and thousands of people have been affected in addition to that.  Please keep all of these people in your thoughts and prayers and take a minute to be thankful for all you have.

Just some of the damage that has been done.

Secondly, on a lighter note, I started off the weekend last night with some good clean fun!  I went bowling as part of a staff bonding event with some of the fellow R.A.s from my building.  We had such a good time, and a few strikes were even thrown into the mix!

CUTE!

Look at that magnificent form, ha!

Group shot!

Finally, Foxfield is here!  Foxfield is a set of steeplechase races and the Spring Races have occurred in April every year for more than thirty years. Because of its timing at the end of the year, it is always a last hoorah for UVA students (as well as students from many other VA universities) before finals.  It is a day filled with tailgating, big hats, and Lilly/seersucker/madras galore!  I thought it would be fun to show you my Foxfield outfits over the years in anticipation for this year's race!

1st Year
Allie and MTG
My dress was actually a steal from Target!

2nd Year
Lilly and the pink floppy hat!

3rd Year
Lilly and no hat!

4th Year
It's Lilly!

Don't forget to enter my first giveaway!!!

Any guesses which dress I got for this year's races?  What are your weekend plans?

  2. Aw, I love bowling outings. I am never consistent in my game though. Sometimes I can make a lot of strikes and sometimes I can barely hit a pin! haha

  3. Have a great time at Foxfield! I wish I was off to a race this weekend. I have a friend from school that went to UVA and he decided to go up this weekend.

    No matter which dress you chose, you will look fabulous!

  4. Oh I can't wait to see which one you chose....by the picture it looks green...but that could totally be green tissue wrapping the dress....I'm gonna take a stab at the Blossom Dress Printed, the Wyatt Dress Printed or the Patterson Dress Printed...I'm probably wrong, but hey, I gave it a shot. :)
