This was our first full weekend in Kentucky together and it was a blast! We didn't spend a whole weekend somewhere different but rather just the day, so therefore I will name this post Day-ers.
Where we went: Lexington, KY
What we did: Went to a University of Kentucky football game.
Before we got ambitious and went on our day trip we decided that a relaxing Friday night at home is just what we needed. With our first full week in Kentucky together under our belts we were both ready for a slow down. The work week can be exhausting and by Friday night all we wanted to do is hang out at home and drink a little wine, so that is just what we did. We cracked open a bottle of wine that we received as the best housewarming gift on record from some wonderful friends of mine, fired up the grill to make some killer brats and sweet potato fries (Note: Not attempting to make sweet potato fries on the grill again-- the oven works best), turned on the tunes and shuffled a deck of cards. The evening was perfect- awesome weather, the best company, delicious food, and hit-the-spot wine. We even made a new friend! We like to call her Frankie. Frankie is the neighbor's cat that we figured was a girl AFTER we gave her the name Frankie (other names include Franklin, Frankers, Frankie-butt, Frankie-poo, Frank the Tank). The pink collar and purple bell should have been a dead giveaway but like I said, we cracked open that bottle of wine. Before we knew it the clock showed 1 A.M. and Frankie lost interest in hanging out with us. Who knew you could have so much fun hanging out with one person without having to go anywhere?!
On Saturday we got up, saw that the weather man was wrong on his rain prediction and bought some tickets to the University of Kentucky vs. Ohio University football game. With both of us being new to the area the whole day was a learning experience. Some things we learned:
