Viva La Weekend!

Even though it's late January there's a lot going on this weekend. I have been looking forward to this weekend all month long!  It's action-packed for sure.  And then there's the Super Bowl next weekend. Who said winter is for sissies?

1) The Pegasus Cup
Gulfstream Park in Florida is the place to be on Saturday to watch California Chrome's final race and a rematch of the Breeder's Cup Classic duel between Chromie and Arrowgate last November.  If you love horse racing, this is as good as it gets.  And Arrowgate drew the number one post position and Chromie has the outside, number twelve.  My bets are on the gray wonder and the Baffert team.  Do not miss this!  You can read more about it here in this Miami Herald article.

2) The Australian Open Finals
Tennis fans will need recovery after watching two finals that are a throwback to the golden years of tennis. No, this is not a dream.  Watch Serena and Venus Williams battle it out early Saturday morning (3 am to be exact).  Will Serena win number 23 or will Venus win her first Australian Open title at the ripe old age of 36?  To be sure, there are no losers in this final.  And if that's not good enough, Rafa Nadal and Roger Federer have proven everyone wrong as they will battle it out on Sunday morning in the men's final.  Both won epic five-set semi-final matches. I predict this one will go to five as well.  It doesn't get better than this in tennis, ever.

3) My Home Gym
The gym equipment arrives on Saturday!  The home gym will be in operation by Sunday. Cannot wait to be able to get fit during these dark, cold winter months.  

4) Oscar Buzz Movies
If you're not a sports fan, this is a good weekend to view some of the best movies of year as the Oscar nominations came out this week. La La Land is high on my list.  Manchester By the Sea is number two.  Go see them all and make your own picks.

5) More Shoes?
January is always a good time to plan your spring wardrobe.  Loving these flats, they look a lot like the Nicholas Kirkwood flats for double the price.  And they come in several colors.
