We're lucky enough to be staying with friends of my friend Eileen, who also so happen to be one of the cutest couples ever! Kelly is American and Romney is Australian. Eileen and Romney have known each other nearly 20 years.

We arrived at Flemington Racecourse, drank champagne on the lawn, ate finger sandwiches, placed bets (we chose the horse with the worst odds in one of the races called "Ready to Rip"), and mingled with everyone we could. At one point, Diana and I conquered a Buck's Party (aka bachelor party) and entertained a group of 10+ guys for over an hour with our random stories and smiles. I think the picture below sums up our goofy personalities:
The best part of attending Stakes Day was I was able to check off another thing on my bucket list: rock a fascinator at a horserace!
