Happy Monday! I cannot wrap my head around the fact that Christmas is under a week away. I’m glad this year is almost over, but I hate how quickly these past few months have gone, especially the holidays!
Friday night we drove around and looked at Christmas lights. We haven’t done that this year, and it’s one of the simplest (and cheapest!) holiday activities! We drove through the lights at Buffalo Trace distillery – they have a free light display and a lot of it is bourbon-themed.
Even Santa likes bourbon!
After the lights, we took J’s agents out for Christmas dinner at one of our favorite Lexington restaurants, Malone’s. Never had a bad meal there! He has worked so hard this year and is building a great team and successful business. He would hate that I bragged on him, but I’m unbelievably proud!
Saturday we headed to Louisville early to start our Christmas Carol weekend. The Actors Theatre of Louisville performs a fantastic rendition of A Christmas Carol. We’ve attended for the past seven years, and it truly gets better every time we go! If you’re in or around Louisville during the holiday season, I highly suggest catching a performance.
We always stay at The Galt House Hotel because they go all out for Christmas! It’s an older hotel, but the decorations are beautiful and the service is always fantastic.
I’m always intrigued by their aquarium bar!
We headed to Jeff Ruby’s to watch my beloved Cats take on UNC. What a game! So happy the Cats pulled off a win!
After dinner and a couple of drinks at the Galt House bar, we went to bed… at 9:30. We can’t hang like we used to!
Sunday morning we went to brunch and headed home, where I took a 2.5 hour nap. I scrambled for the rest of the day to get everything done, but it was so worth it.
I can’t believe another Christmas Carol trip has come and gone and I can’t wait to go back again next year. Here’s to a festive and fun week, friends! Do you have any Christmas traditions? How was your weekend?
