I traveled to Lexington, Kentucky a few days ago to attend a Kentucky Reading Project meeting and the Kentucky Reading Association annual conference. While Bryan and Nana, who came up Thursday night, held down the fort at home, I attended sessions/meetings, but I also got to enjoy some alone time.
One of my favorite stops in Lexington is Old Kentucky Chocolates. It is located in the convention center so I always stop by when I'm there. I wasn't sure there would be anything that I could eat, but then I spotted these Dark Chocolate Cashews. They are yummy!
Friday afternoon, I ventured out on my own to do some shopping. It felt so strange to go from place to place without getting kids out of the car. It was also a little too quiet when I was stuck in rush hour traffic.
After dinner, I spent an evening leisurely browsing books at Joseph-Beth Booksellers and
reading lots and lots of labels at Whole Foods,
which usually doesn't happen when we have the boys with us.
I found several new things that we can eat!
We also went to eat at P.F. Chang's. Did you know they have an entire section of their menu that is gluten-free? While we try to avoid all grains, sometimes there are ingredients (especially sauces) that still contain gluten. So I was especially happy to see a menu dedicated to gluten-free.
After a lovely meal and my delightful little trip of business mixed with pleasure,
I headed home to the boys.
