    Default Upperville Weds, June 9th

    I am planning my annual "mental health and overall rejuvenation retreat" and would love to have company railside, Hunter Ring II for the snacking, gossiping and viewing pleasure.

    As is tradition, there will be plenty of tasty treats to snack on in the shade of the oaks while the A/A's go round and round before us.

    The 1st & 2nd year greens, conformation and regular working hunter classes, as well as the Paul & Eve Go-As-You-Please Handy Hunter will be doing the lovely in Ring 1 and the jumpers will be "leaping tall buildings in a single stride" across the street.

    Oh the pretty horses, the vendors, the NOT AT WORK ON WEDNESDAY bliss of Upperville in early June.

    I've never had the privilege of attending Upperville, but I'm hoping to be there that Wednesday to watch. Next year, I'll be bringing my gelding if all goes well. *fingers crossed!* I'm actually kind of shy in real life, but I'd love to stop by and meet some of you all in person.

    Just don't ask for any of her champagne, or you may lose a hand.

    Pish posh!

    Trixie, there will be roasted veggie wraps w/provolone and scallion/basil mayo for you.

    Vodka soaked pineapple and strawberries in the adult fruit salad for Offset.

    They didn't eliminate ALL of the grass, did they? I thought there was still some surrounding the trees and such?

    I'm glad this thread was posted. Had been preoccupied with other things and the Upperville excitement hadn't set in yet. Its in full swing now.

    I know, we keep just missing each other! It'll happen this time, though...3rd time is a charm!

    Three kinds of cookies, brownies, perhaps. Hummingbird cake or Apple spice?

    Veggies & dip, chips and a 7-layer (8) mexican dip, Trixie's roasted veggie wraps.

    MINI QUICHES - oh yes!

    The aforementioned adult fruit salad to keep our A/A's lubricated.

    Brie, of course, I must make a list...

    Apple spice, with that bourbon sauce.

    Or carrot cake, or cheesecake. Maybe I'll bake something.
