Yes, I said derby hat making! Dee's Crafts (a professional Kentucky Derby hat maker) helped us make our own derby hats in preparation for our trip to Churchill Downs on Monday night. Did you know a hat like mine can retail for well over $100?!
Crazy!! (Above photo courtesy of Love Feast Table)
Anyway, like I said earlier, I met some amazing women! Bloggers from all different niches were at the GE Momsperience, yet we all got along and found a ton of stuff in common! Only in a group of bloggers can you talk face-to-face and be on Twitter/Facebook at the same time and no one thinks it's rude. Only in a group of bloggers can you go around taking photos of all kind of weird things (including all the food you eat) and no one thinks you're crazy. Only in a group of bloggers can you get so many pictures of yourself because everyone is willing to take photos for you! Only in a group of bloggers can people ask you to take photos for them to be emailed later. Only in a group of bloggers can you keep up with people who aren't in the same room with you via Twitter.
After a long, yet super fun day at the GE Monogram Experience Center, and some photo ops with the interactive artwork at the 21C Museum Hotel on Monday...
I was a bit disappointed that we didn't get to see the actual track at Churchill Downs but it was fun anyway.
We ate some amazing food and sipped on Mint Juleps, interacted with some of GE Appliances various managers, and toured the museum.
What a great time to interact with some of the amazing women I met and bounce around ideas with the GE appliances managers!

There you have it, fun women and fabulous hats!
