- Hello all,
- Been a while, we know… We’ve been dormant on the blog for way too long, but that’s about to change. Let me catch you up. ( Be aware, this is a long, photo and map laden post. We aim to have more, smaller updates moving forward! )
As you may have guessed from the photos we are in BOURBON COUNTRY. Visiting the folks and having a blast just catching up and shopping in town.
We don’t get to see Michael’s parents as often as we would like and the new coach puts some distance restraints on where we can stay near them. Bardstown is Dad’s home, so it makes for a nice visit.
This time around we skipped the distillery tours – after all I am already a Maker’s Mark Ambassador – and just stayed in town shopping. The fellas were patient and great about all of it because they knew The Rickhouse was the finish line.
We met up with Tom and saw his beautiful and throaty Shelby Cobra — as a Tesla owner I can tell you I do not miss most things about ICE vehicles — but when it fired up and I could feel it in my chest. Oh how I wished my Daddy could have seen it.
So, back to the shopping.
Hurst Discount Drug was a nice little shop. Diner, pharmacy and gift shop all rolled into one.
The Olive Spout was fabulous. Alexis was very helpful. I sampled several vinegars and came out with a 750ml bottle of my favorite – Gravenstein Apple White Balsamic.
We popped into Making Good Scentz and it smelled so yummy in there!! I came away with several lip balms – because you know I am all about the lip balms – and a lotion that smelled so yummy I had to. After all, when you are in BOURBON COUNTRY you will buy all the things BOURBON!! Yep, BOURBON BARREL scented lotion!!
Again many thanks to our wonderful parents. We had a fabulous day and we are so grateful to you have you both in our life.
*BIG RIG note — White Acres Campground in Bardstown, KY is a great place to stay while you are in the area. Easily fit us, with pull throughs at about 90′ long. Spacious, and easy in and out.
We arrived in Arizona on Saturday. It was a long day of driving for me but uneventful.
The park is nice and quiet. We have great views and we are looking forward to exploring the area — but first HOCKEY.
We are going to Glendale tomorrow to tick Gila Arena off the must see list. One of my bucket list items “See a hockey game in all NHL arenas.”
Already missing Vegas — but we have been in one spot long enough. Time to get back to exploring.
I am a bad girl for not blogging more often but honestly I was too busy having a blast to stop and tell you about it. We took in a lot of shows and I can sum them all up with this one fantastic phrase: A Variety of Sexxy Evil Dead Zombie Chippendale Penis Puppetry and Elvis.
Why? Because VEGAS BABY!!
