Kentucky Favorites: The Night Market

Night Market in Lexington, Kentucky
Night Market is a fun local event that we have here in downtown Lexington that features all sorts of vendors – food, craft beer, hand made items, coffee, etc. There’s live music and lots to look at! We went several weekends back and I’d love to go again. I spotted a few vintage dresses and some beautiful handmade jewelery that I wish I had picked up. And the food – ohhh the food! These are the kinds of things that make me sad to see our Kentucky summer evenings slipping away!

The Bluegrass 10,000

2014 Bluegrass 10,000
Nate ran in the Bluegrass 10,000 on the 4th of July. I struggled to get up and go with him but I was so glad that I did because the weather was just perfect. It was a beautiful day to be outside! I find it so difficult to get up and get going but I am always so thankful once I’ve made myself do it. I walked around while Nate ran, sipped some coffee, and made sure to be at the finish line when he crossed! I tell ya, being a spectator is the only place for me when it comes to running. There’s a small part of me that wants to try to enjoy it but I think I’ll stick to silks classes!

We are headed to Chicago in October so that Nate can run the Chicago Marathon. I will be more than happy to be on the sidelines for that! Chicago is such a fantastic city and I can’t wait to take tons of photos and enjoy a long weekend there while Nate gets to do something he loves!

Kentucky Favorites: National Provisions Beer Hall

>Kentucky Favorites: National Provisions Beer Hall
We have so many favorite hang out spots in Lexington now that it’s hard to believe I’m adding another one to list but with the way this city is blowing up I suppose I better get used it! Friday night we went down to National Provisions to check out their new Beer Hall and hang out with a few friends. It was the perfect end to a long week and a relaxing beginning to our weekend. Just look at this place – the atmosphere is fantastic. We didn’t eat but I saw several wonderful looking dishes make their way to other customers, so I’m really looking forward to going back to grab lunch or brunch here soon! Apparently there is also another side of the establishment that is a boulangerie. I realized after we left that I have seen a ton of gorgeous photos of the Boulangerie and have heard lots of good things about their delicious pastries! Oh Lexington, you’re making it extremely difficult to just stay home and be content with cooking my own food!

Springtime in Lexington, Kentucky

Some of my favorite weekends this time of year are spent wandering our city’s downtown area. One of my best friends, Kristie, lives in the perfect location in downtown Lexington. On occasion, our husbands go off and do their man things and we spend the afternoon exploring the prettiest nearby neighborhoods and popping in and out of all of the places the boys will never go with us, like cocktail bars and Local Taco (mmmm, chips and salsa)! We pretty much just set out on foot with no plans in particular and end up where we end up! My favorite kind of plans are basically no plans at all.
