Weekend Highlights {January Week 2}

I think Winter is officially here---at least here in Kentucky. I can't be too mad about it since we've been riding out fall for way too long.

I've been wanting to try this new(ish) restaurant in a town about 30 minutes away for a while so used a plan free weekend to make the trip. Any restaurant that has boozy milkshakes is top on my list but luckily the smoked gouda burger was equally delicious! The waitress then mentioned that there was a moonshine distillery within walking distance where you could pay $5 and get a tasting of all their flavors. No question we walked over. The apple pie was my favorite! If you're in Eastern Kentucky, Thirsty Heifer and Kentucky Mist Moonshine is a nice little Saturday night.



This snazzy Instagram photo is proof that I made from scratch doughnuts. Homemade Decadence from Joy the Baker is quickly becoming one of my favorite cookbooks and hopefully going to teach me how to bake. These vanilla sugar doughnuts made Sunday morning even better.

See that booklurking in the photo? It's my first book selection in the Mrs. Modern Darcy Reading Challenge.  I'm tagging it under the prompt "Books I've Been Meaning to Read" mostly because I feel like everyone has read and loved the book but I've been putting it off for some reason. It's so good!

Thank you to everyone who helped me celebrate my birthday last week and entered the giveaway! We have a winner!
