Okay, I should be honest here...I really could care less about the Ascot Races (Sorry Brits and race horse enthusiasts, etc..). But what I do care about, with uncontrollable passion, is ice cream! Today I stumbled upon the most glorious of events, the Ascot Races aka ponies-and-ladies-in-crazy-hats-day. And someone, no, a brilliant wizard of supreme imagination, invented an edible chocolate hat! Seriously, this has got to be a huge leap for humanity.
Milliner Judy Bentinck made a 4 foot hat shaped like an ice cream cone (mesh+satin) in just 6 weeks. And the added brilliance is that it includes with real chocolate for snacking! Hats off to you Judy Bentnick! (sorry, I couldn't resist that one!) Wow. Suddenly horse races sound more intriguing than they were just moments ago. Anyone wanna take me on a date to next years Ascot Races??
Other favorites include the blue cheese and grapes hat, the toilet seat/bathtub hat and the granny chic pony/button/fake flowers hat!

Its ridiculously hot today and of course the ac decided to not work so I'm spending most of the afternoon in the sun and the pool! I suppose I can't complain, especially when this little guy flies by to visit! Pup is also enjoying her day in the sun! Yay for summer!
