Goat Yoga finally makes it way to the Bluegrass State! If you haven’t heard, Goat Yoga has been the latest fitness craze since 2016. If you google it, there are thousands and thousands, if not more articles and videos about this latest trend. Goat Yoga is exactly what it sounds like: people doing yoga, while there are goats running around them. When I first saw one of the viral videos floating around on facebook sometime last year, I knew I had to do something like this, if I came across the opportunity.

I was on facebook back in mid-April and somehow the event “Yoga With Baby Goats at the Blue Heron Bed and Breakfast and Retreat Center” came across my newsfeed. I immediately squealed with glee and knew I just had to sign up! This particular event turned out to be extremely popular and sold out almost immediately. They even began a waiting list, just in case people canceled and could no longer go. Other places around the country have had 500 or even 1500 people on their waiting lists. As you can see, these classes are in high demand. The Blue Heron Bed and Breakfast and Retreat Center is located in Richmond, Kentucky, and there are plans of having more events in the future, so be sure if you want to go, sign up as soon as you find out, because there are limited spots!

Before I get into my experience, let me tell you about Goat Yoga and how Goat Yoga became at thing…

Things to Do in Lexington, KY: Week of May 20-26, 2017

Every Friday, I plan on sharing “Things to Do” in Lexington for the upcoming week Lexington. This is not a complete list of “Things to Do,” as there are many events constantly being added, it would be impossible to keep up  with all of them.

I see so many people say that they are bored. But the truth is, they either a) like complaining or b) they have no idea what is going on. We are all adults here, so there is no reason to proclaim you are bored. Go out and do something. We live in a pretty great city, so there’s no reason not to take advantage of what is has to offer. Not all events cost money and require tickets. There are plenty of free events  and things to do happening all of the time in Lexington, but you just have to know where to find them.

For the week of May 20-26, I’ve added over 100 events happening just in Lexington. If you click on the link, there will be more information, such as the address and whether or not, tickets are required.

How To Become a Maker’s Mark Ambassador

Maker's Mark Ambassador

It’s no surprise that here in Kentucky, we like our bourbon. After all, it’s something that Kentucky is known for – 95% of the world’s bourbon is made here. There are numerous distilleries all throughout Central Kentucky.

I’m sure everyone has heard of Maker’s Mark, but did you know that they have an Ambassador Program? This is a one-of-a-kind program that you will definitely want to be a part of. There are many perks, and it is free to sign up.

I’m sure everyone knows it by now, but my name is Whitney, and I’m ambassador #1724647. If you haven’t signed up yet as an ambassador, let me tell you what you are missing out on…

10 Things To In Lexington, Kentucky During December

lexingtonky-winteractivities

Just because it is winter and cold outside, doesn’t mean the fun has to stop. In fact, there are tons of activities to do in Lexington, Kentucky during the winter; both indoors and outdoors. I think the problem is that people don’t know about the activities and events, until after they are over or they may not know where to look to find out.

I’ve composed a list of “Christmasy” activities that you can do in Lexington (and surrounding areas) during the month of December. Obviously, there are many more things to do than ten (including and excluding Christmas), but it would be impossible to list them all, and a lot have already happened, considering it is the middle of December.
