Happy Holidays and a very [late] Merry Christmas to you all! I hope the last few days have found you happiness + good health, and God as blessed you with time with family + friends!
Our Christmas was wonderful! We spent our Christmas with both sides of our family, eating until we were stuffed and having a jolly good time! Some of my favorite gifts included a new Coach purse from my in-laws, diamond earrings from the Hubs, an ice cream maker from the bro, and my new Vibram FiveFingers from the Hubs! (I will be posting sometime about how + why I plan to incorporate barefoot running into my routine.)
And a certain someone just so happened to celebrate his 30th birthday on the 26th! I can’t believe I’m married to a 30 year old! CRAZY!
We were also able to visit a fairly new distillery about 10 miles north of Branson – Copper Run Distillery. They make small batch moonshine, whiskey, and rum. It was delish and of course we ended up taking a bottle of whiskey home for the Hubs.
And of course, no trip to Branson could be complete without a stop at my absolute FAVORITE frozen custard place!
Yes, I know, it’s the 3rd time we’ve been this year, but it’s a definitely treat since there is not one in STL. Plus, we went to one in Springfield instead of in Branson… so at least it was a different location, right?!
I decided to try something new that I had never seen before. The Askinosie WooHoo Concrete.
A wonderful blend of bitter chocolate blended to pieces with Andy’s incredibly creamy vanilla custard. And check out Askinosie Chocolate – they have a really great story.
Matt chose to get the Boomer Bear in support of local Missouri State University. A new combination that seems a bit weird but totally worked. Sweet + buttery + crunchy = delish!
Another successful Andy’s visit. And although they are opened through the winter (GO if you have a chance), we won’t be back until SDC opens up again in the spring.
