Carolina Cup 2013

Carolina Cup


Pin It!

I am oh-so-excited that this weekend is not only Easter, but also the 81st running of the Carolina Cup!  We've been going to this event for well, just about all of my adult life, and it truly is a big part of me.  The day consists of competitive horse races for the cup, with the big running joke of, "so did you see any horses?" 

A big tailgating party, Southern style.  That's about all it is.  Like the very best part of college football games, all day long.
A day when we pack our cucumber sandwiches, don our wide-brimmed hats, paint our toenails pink, and think that we look like this:

 
When in actuality, we look a little more like this:
 

Or this:


OH SHOOT THAT'S ME!

Or this:


GOOD GRACIOUS, ME AGAIN!
What a dang hot mess.

Well, don't you know that what happens at the Cup stays at the Cup.  Right?!
