Hey all, how was everyone’s Thanksgiving? I had a relaxing, low-key holiday back at my parents’ house. It was exactly what the doctor ordered—except that now I have a cold. Bah humbug. But I got to spend some quality time with brother who was home from college and my grandparents who came over for Turkey Day (and the velcro dog, of course), and for that I was very thankful.
Did anybody get any good deals at the sales? I didn’t partake in the Black Friday madness—crowds aren’t really my thing—but I did order a new pair of boots online. Is it just me or is it incredible hard to find a cute (but quality) pair of caramel/cognac/whiskey boots this season? I’m still not sure these will fit the bill, but we’ll find out soon enough.
Speaking of whiskey, I toured one of Chicago’s distilleries last weekend! Koval Distillery is actually just up the street from me, and I’ve been meaning to go on a tour for over a year now. Finally a few friends and I made it happen—and boy, did we get our money’s worth! We got an Amazon Local deal so we only paid $5 each, and I bet we got to try 10 different products. Most were whiskeys, one vodka, a few liqueurs… made for an interesting Sunday. I was a fan of the Ginger Liqueur (would be awesome to cook with) and the Toasted Rye. My advice? Stay away from the white whiskey!
