With the Derby right around the corner, I've been having spring fever with dresses!  I cannot WAIT to bust out a sleeveless dress for the occasion and hopefully make some money on the races!  Saturday is looking pretty good weather wise, but Sunday is not so I'm hoping it holds out because that will determine my Derby plans.  Yes, I know I'm waiting until the last possible second!  I have yet to attend the Derby as I've attended the other Triple Crown races, but I know I'll have to be more prepared than ever since it's such a huge event and we'd really need to plan a house, transportation and seats!  One day for sure!  However, I have many Derby dresses prepped as well as the hats and hair accessories so we'll see what ends up getting pulled together.  As you can see I love this floral number and I've been loving ALL the floral prints out there.  I'm always a fan of a high neckline where you can opt for a necklace or go without.  I also have been loving dresses that hit right at the knee or a bit above.  Not just for modesty sake, but for just being completely comfortable.  There's nothing riding up your legs or anything that you have to worry about blowing up too high on a windy day [hello college?].  It just keeps it simple and easy!

Not much happened over the weekend here in Saratoga, BUT the whole Hogan side was glued to the TV!  We were watching day in and day out the NFL Draft to see where my cousin, Kevin Hogan would be drafted and we were thrilled to find out Saturday that he was drafted to the Kansas City Chiefs as a backup quarterback (hopefully for not too long ;))!  So we've already been talking about which games we would be able to travel to and get our KC gear up to snuff.  This'll probably add to our new Hogan reunion weekends, not that the Stanford games weren't already, but it was just an overall exciting weekend for our family and we're so thankful and happy for Kevin's success and future!
