I would say that if I had a bucket list attending the Kentucky Derby would be near the top of the list. The Southern, classic nature of the event has always appealed to me.



I was so stoked to win a Rebecca Ray 2015 Kentucky Derby tote from one of my favorite bloggers, Alison at The Polohouse. I have been a fan of Rebecca Ray equestrian-styled designs for a while and hope she adds accessories for men to her line soon. If I can’t be sipping a julep at the Derby, I will be carrying my Derby tote to the pool.


I love the way the package arrived too. Alison had artfully created a monogrammed ribbon and slogan on the package. I love her creativity.

Thanks, Alison for a great give away!

Kentucky Derby tote, y’all!


  1. Good morning, Ron! What a great tote--lucky you! I could so see you donned in your seersucker suit and hat and tote at the Kentucky Derby! You ought to do that one year. It's on my bucket list for sure. Congratulations on the "WIN"! I love Alison decorated the package! Have a great day! xoxo

  2. Very cool bag and yay for the win!! I would love to go to Derby Day. Hats and drinks and horses...perfect!


  3. WOW! I hardly ever enter a contest, but I did enter to win this bag because it's so fabulous! Love the design and handles. Hope you enjoy it . . . I'll be the one without a derby bag. I'll just hold a mint julep instead!

  4. Congratulations on your win! Glad it made you so happy too. Hope all is down down your way.
    Be a sweetie,

  5. Congrats Ron what a great bag. So fun how she sent it to you too. Have a great week end.

  6. That is a nice bag and I love how she decorated the package! Have a great weekend Ron!

  7. Neat bag to win! So fun to win something!!

  8. Oh my word, how exciting. That is one fabulous tote, I love it. I agree with you, I would love to go to the Kentucky Derby. Definitely on my Bucket List.

  9. I have been to the Derby a few times and it is so much fun. And how much better can a sporting event get than one that lasts about 10 seconds with a full day of drinking before?
