Weekend in Photos // Foxfield Spring Races 2012

Monday, April 30, 2012

Each Spring and Fall in Virginia, thousands of people dressed in their best Polo, J.Crew, and Lilly Pulitzer flock to a field just outside of Charlottesville, set up plots with tailgating necessities, and proceed to drink heavily all day in the name of some horse races. Obviously, I have always wanted to go. Rob's graduate program at UVA got us a plot and some food, so on Saturday morning we boarded the MS Commerce party bus and made our way to my very first Foxfield experience.

From the one race I actually saw.

Sweet Cat. Hi, Cat!

Styrofoam coolers ain't that sturdy.

This is Andrew. He went to college with my friends from high school and now is in grad school with Rob. 

Desire and Patrick, my friends-from-home-turned-Charlottesville-neighbors.

I fell asleep on the bus ride home, like many others. Everyone was worn out from a chilly day in the rain, but we had so much fun together. Rob's classmates have always done a fantastic job making me feel like I belong with them. When Rob and I got back to the apartment we changed into warm, dry clothes and headed to our favorite Chinese buffet. Bed time happened extra early that night. I think you know you had a good day when you find yourself calling it a night at 8:30 PM.


This afternoon we're off to Maryland for the Death Cab show! I couldn't be more excited.

PS There's one more regular ad space left for May.

Happy Monday!

  2. Sounds like a ton of fun save the rain...april showers bring may flowers, so get excited because May begins tomorrow!

  3. Glad you had a good weekend! It looks like you have some great friends!


  4. Glad you enjoyed your first Foxfield experience! Looks like you guys had a great time!

  5. Oh I am so jealous of this day! It looks like so much fun - do people actually watch the races or do they just get drunk the whole day?

    Also, have so much fun tonight! You are going to literally be DOWN THE STREET FROM ME! I am as excited by that as I am by you going to see Death Cab! :)

  6. You seriously look so MOD in this outfit. Especially the picture with Patrick and Desiree. I'm imagining go-go boots and a mini skirt. You were born in the wrong decade chica.

  7. this looks like so much fun! anytime drinking is allowed outdoors in the middle of the day, it's sure to be a fun time.

    have fun at the show tonight!!!

  8. seriously looks like such a fun time! i cant wait for the races to get here in the summer!

  9. I didn't know you lived in Virginia! I live in Northern VA near DC, I had no idea Death Cab was playing in maryland!!! Im jealous, thats the one band I would beg my husband to get a sitter for a good date night :-)

    have FUN!!!!

  10. Sounds like fun! Enjoy the concert!
