The best part of October.... it actually feels like fall! Time to break out the cardigans, scarves and booties. I can't wait. To re-cap our long weekend.
We left Thursday night after work and drove to Lexington, KY. We made it in five hours solid, with one stop - Micky D's for Miss Annalee's first happy meal. Well, sorta. I ate her cheeseburger and most of her fries.... and she had the apple slices, milk and a couple nuggets from her Dad. I think she loved the box the most. PS - How precious are the little fry boxes?
First Happy MealOn Friday morning, the little one and I went for a long walk and grabbed some coffee at Daily Offerings Coffee Roastery, while the hubs did a couple hotel site visits. This place was so cute. Annalee loved the cool seats.
Maker's Mark, where we had reserved our tours to dip a bottle of bourbon from our barrel that finally matured. Side note, if you're not an Ambassador, you should be. Christmas presents every year and your name goes on a barrel. After 6-7 years, you get to visit and dip a bottle, or two, from your barrel. Such great customer service - and talk about a way to create brand loyalty.
OK, back to our road trip. We took a tour, dipped our bottles, took a special visit to the Heritage Room to see a KA plaque for the hubs, and got a private golf cart ride to the car... which was needed for our box of bourbon we purchased. It was so cool. And totally worth the drive.
This was just after spying Jerry Jones drive by on a golf cart... he was there to purchase a Private Select barrel for the Cowboy's stadium. He even gave Annalee a little nod hello!
September to-do list, installing new blinds in the bedroom and spending the afternoon at a vineyard. It was Rockbridge Vineyard's Harvest festival - complete with grape stopping and hayrides.
Did I mention my shirts arrived from Shein? They are so cute! I'm so excited for a new fall wardrobe.
Cheers to October friends! Looking forward to a great month ahead. Stay tuned for our October bucket list coming to the blog tomorrow.
