Start serving drinks the minute your guests arrive, no matter the hour. Thanksgiving is not a time to judge.
I have never fought with another person in my entire life more than I have with you. Hair pulling, arm twisting, slapping… you name it, we’ve done it (& sometimes still do)! I have also never laughed harder, told more secrets to, sought advice from, traveled well with, and made fun of anyone else more either. Jack, I am so absurdly happy that after 10 years of being apart we are back in the same place. I love you x a million and wish you the happiest of birthdays.

I have never been lost, but I will admit to being confused for several weeks.
I survived Extreme Weekend Experience! Erin, Cortnie, Marcy, and I drove down to Louisville on Friday afternoon. Jenna was already in town visiting Jason. Sarah and Mara arrived a few hours later. And of course our hosts, Marc and Michael, were eagerly awaiting everyone’s arrival. That night, we had a fantastic time at Drake’s, downing shots and watching the Mother of a bride break it down on the dance floor.
Saturday was jam packed! First stop of the day was North End Cafe for brunch, followed by a trip to the Zappos outlet, a tour and tasting at Heaven Hills Distilleries, and personal meet and greet with a few of the Brill family’s horses at Churchill Downs. Oh, did I mention we were being driven around in a large white van that Marc and Michael rented for the day? These boys weren’t kidding around! After a two hour hang sesh in their living room, we all got dolled up for dinner at Basa, a pre-game (complete with sparklers) at Galt House, and a night out on Fourth Street.
Before heading home on Sunday, I had brunch at Harvest with my family friends Gray & Rose Mary. I hadn’t seen them since celebrating the fourth of July in Harbor Springs and it’s always nice to catch up with them. It had been six years since I was last in Louisville. After a weekend like this, it certainly won’t take that long to get me back there again!
Weekend Recap // Louisville edition
The name of the game when I go out with my college friends
Two of my favorite boys from college are hosting a little something they like to call Extreme Weekend Experience in Louisville. The next 48+ hours will entail a considerable amount of eating, drinking, and who knows what else with nine of my fellow Redhawks. May the odds be ever in my favor!
