Yesterday was the perfect kind of Saturday. The kind where you make plans to get up early and utilize the entire day doing fun things that you always say you’ll do but never get around to! We do a lot of things with friends on the weekends, but it’s pretty rare that we make plans to get up early to do anything .. ever, and actually keep the plans! We headed over to Jackson and Kristie’s around 10AM, walked down to the Farmers Market for a bit, tasted delicious samples of cheese, walked back, ate some snacks, and headed out for a distillery tour of Four Roses in Lawrenceburg, which is only a short drive from Lexington. The beautifully maintained grounds and gorgeous Spanish style architecture of this place made it such a lovely location for a few outfit photos!
Kristie and I have been swapping a lot of clothes lately, and this outfit came entirely from a bag in her car that was on it’s way to Goodwill! When she left my house Friday night I joked that we should wear each other’s clothes when we hung out Saturday, and guess what? We totally did! Free shopping is the best kind of shopping so I hope this whole clothes swapping thing becomes a new trend that we keep up every few months or so!
The distillery tour was really interesting. I wasn’t a fan of being outside for more than 5 seconds at a time because it was really hot, so our tour guide kind of lost my attention during the parts that took place in the blazing hot sun. It’s always neat to see where things come from and how they’re made. We were all blown away by how small the facilities really are in comparison to how much bourbon they distribute. At the end of the tour we got to do a tasting – normally this would be the fun part of the tour, if I liked bourbon all that much! I will say that my cold symptoms felt a little bit better after having a tiny sip of it. ;]
The rest of the day was just as good as the beginning! We had lunch at a local deli downtown before Nate and Jackson left us to play some golf. Kristie and I spent a little bit of time at the mall – I scored two pairs of tights from the GAP for just over $4 and I bought a pack of my favorite seasonal wallflowers from B&BW! We hung out with some friends at their house for a while after that and then grabbed some sushi to end the evening! This is how I would like to spend every day of my life, please. ;] I hope you all had a fabulous weekend!!
