Monogram Monday: Let Them Eat Cake!

To start this post off on a totally unrelated note to this post, I am wearing plaid and cable knit today and absolutely loving it. Seriously, nothing screams cold weather like this combo to me, now if only my fireplace actually worked (it's okay, the heater and a scented wax melt can make up for that, right?
Anyways, I turned 21 last Saturday and I had the best birthday! I got to go out the night before with one of my best friends here at UVA and my roommate and paint the town red...sorry, not regaling y;all with those crazy stories ;P
But Saturday I rang my birthday in with a pretty classy celebration at the International Gold Cup. 
Gold Cup is a horse race event that happens twice a year and is a bit much less of a hot mess than Foxfields in the Spring. I love the fall event because everyone breaks out their tweeds, furs, and boots and in the deep, rich fall's just perfect. We had the greatest time and I thought I'd share a few of my favorite photos, including a very special monogrammed item...
Nate and I
my wonderful Momma
love these ladies!
go Chi O
the toast!

and, of course, the monogrammed...



  1. love the cake! Happy belated birthday!


  2. that's how i felt and now I agree that a monogrammed cake is totally necessary!
