weekend in review

My weekends aren't always exciting enough to merit a full "weekend in review" post on Monday... but this weekend definitely made the cut. Lance's brother and his wife made a last minute decision to make the drive from Georgia to Kentucky for a weekend visit... so obviously the out-of-towners deserve the best treatment... so we pulled out all of the stops...

...starting by taking my sister-in-law to the one and only Zappos fulfillment center...

...we browsed rows and rows of fabulously discounted shoes...

...we of course took them to our favorite Farmer's Market...

...where we each enjoyed a freshly made crepe (Lance and I had nutella & banana... it was AMAZING and took me right back to the streets of Paris)...

...the hydrangeas were out in every shade of pink and violet...

...then we drove over to the Woodford Reserve distillery to learn all about making bourbon...

...the tour was incredible and I was amazed at all you can learn for just $5 (and you get a free sample)...

...it was so fascinating learning about the entire bourbon making process (fun fact: did you know that 98% of the world's bourbon is made in Kentucky?)...

...Lance and I will definitely be hitting up some of the other distilleries on the Bourbon Trail...

...for dinner Saturday night we tried out 732 Social (AMAZING... full review to come)...

...we finished our evening by watching the soccer game at Molly Malone's...

...it was fun at first... until the US started losing...

...and I can think of no better way to wrap up an incredible weekend other than an awesome antique market (don't worry, full post to come)...

What about you? How was your weekend??

I keep forgetting about the Zappos outlet. I went once several years ago but haven't been back since. I wasn't blown away by good deals but it's still fun to go through aisle and aisles of shoes!

I've heard really good things about 732 Social. From what I understand, you were lucky to even get in! Can't wait to read your review.
