Last Random Wednesday for 2013


You like that creative title, don't ya?? My homegirl Shanna is having her last Random Wednesday link up for 2013 so I had to jump in there with her. Plus, I have LOTS to update you on! Can you believe that one week from today is Christmas Eve? Go home 2013, you are DRUNK and have flown by.
 
Let's start with my Louisville trip - It was sooo amazing! A 4 day weekend was JUST what this girl needed to recharge myself before the holidays. Manda and I had a little alcohol fueled fun! We hit up the Marker's Mark Distillery tour and got to taste lots of yummy bourbon and of course ended our weekend with Mr. JT. Here's my weekend recap via IG pics {nikkib918}

Found my old Britney's Greatest Hits cd for the 3.5 hour drive up! #it'sbritneybitch
 



Manda took me to her church Sunday and it was so awesome! I loved the service, and they have a coffee bar!


 
Long weekends are the best, but coming home is nice too. I still have plenty of Christmas shopping to do, and lots of volunteer work coming up for our Christmas stuff at church so I'll be a busy little bee the next week.
 
I just want to take a moment and count my blessings. Things are in such a good place in my life right now. So much different from where I was just one year ago. My work is amazing and big changes are coming, but I am so excited for new opportunities. My family is actually good too. We are getting along and my mom is feeling pretty good. My brother and I are talking again and that just makes my soul happy. My church family is seriously the very best. I love the people God has put in my path! My friends are amazing - real life & bloggy. God has filled my heart with so much joy. I can't help but spew about it.
 
And speaking of joy....I got these babies in the mail over the weekend. Sweet Erin's hubby made these for me! I have been lusting over earrings like these on Etsy for over a year but never took the plunge. The best news is: if you like these and want to purchase some YOU CAN for only $10 here.

britney for a 3hr drive? yes please.

isn't it strange to look back on a WHOLE YEAR and remember all the things - good and bad - that happened? sometimes i can't believe that 2014 is just around the corner.
