The Masters

Last week was a great week for me.  We bought another house in Georgia and then closed out the week attending The Masters Golf Tournament in Augusta.  The Masters is truly a tradition like no other. The course is pure perfection. The employees are gracious. The golf is the best in the world!

The famous sign at the entrance to Magnolia Lane...

The Augusta National has strict rules on conduct, customs, and etiquette.  Those rules are followed by all the patrons for fear of losing their cherished patrons badge! 

I decided to dress for comfort and wore Lilly skorts and tennis shoes.


 It was fun to be back in my hometown!

Everyone wants Masters food, so I took the famous sandwiches home to my friend Joy.

 I was cheering for both Fred Couples and Bubba Watson and was thrilled to see Bubba win.  Here is Bubba and is son Caleb on the 18th green right after he won...on his way to receive his 2nd green jacket.

One of the many reasons I love Bubba...he celebrated his win at The Waffle House!

I'm spending the week on Tybee Island with my friend Joy, then traveling back to visit with my Mama.  Hope y'all are having a beautiful Easter week.

I'm so happy to see your post about the Masters! After last year's post, I was looking forward to it again.
It was great to see Bubba win, it obviously meant a lot to him and his family.
To paraphrase a line from Steel Magnolias your Lilly outfits "are just too colorful for words!" Adorable as always and from what I saw, you were probably one of the best dressed people in the gallery!

I loved all your outfits. You are so adorable! It is refreshing to see "rules of decorum" in place. The Masters would be a wonderful event to attend.

You look absolutely adorable, as always. You and your lovely Lilly collection remind me of that iconic photo of Lilly herself standing among her shifts in her Worth Ave. shop. A happy, blesses Easter to you and yours.
P.S. A house????

It was indeed great to see Bubba win. I decided to go for comfort...skorts and tennis shoes. I don't regret the choice!

Miss Janice said...

Thank you Donna. I hope that one day you might attend The Masters. It is an experience of a lifetime and protocol is followed by all patrons...or else!

Miss Janice said...

You are so sweet Kari. Happy Easter to you!!!

A new house? Does this mean more decorating posts are in store, I hope?

Miss Janice said...

Yes, a new house. Not sure when we will move. Decorating posts...maybe :)
