Well Dressed for an Afternoon

 So I decided to get dressed up for a trip home to see my family. No one in my family really does this for no reason... but I do. I think it's fun
 I was impressed with myself on this one. I have never been able to put a dimple in my tie (I have also never tried before), but I was pretty excited when I looked up in the mirror to see this. This is a Brooks Brother's tie that I got for Christmas for My Lady.
 Here is a pair of shoes that I thrift-ed a few weeks back. I had never seen wingtips what weren't laced so I got them.
When it got a little hotter, I decided to take off my jacket and roll up my sleeves.

Last Week's Beer

So this was the beer I had last week for Lets Get Beer!
 I went with somewhat of a Guinness theme this week (4 of the 6 were made by Guinness)
 I started off with the Guinness Extra Stout. Now this is one of the darkest beers I have ever had, but it was delicious (I knew Guinness would never let me down... except for that Black Lager.... Boo on that).
 Next I went a little lighter with the Yuengling Porter (Lets face it, anything is lighter than that Extra Stout). I have had their Porter before, but it had been a while so I figured I would get it again. And for the price it's a great beer.
Then I finished the night (didn't drink too much that night) with the New Castle Summer Ale. It was okay... I'm not a big fan of New Castle, but I like Summer Seasonal beers so I figured I'd give it a go. It wasn't bad by any means, but it just wasn't my cup of ... beer.

Long Time, No Post!

I've been bad lately about keeping up with my blog regularly... and for that I apologize.... not back to the post. Since it has been almost 2 weeks, I need to put several bits in this post including Let's Get Beer Wednesday, and the wedding I attended a couple of weekends ago. Lets jump in beer first shall we?

So we found out a couple of weeks ago that the Kroger in Cookeville finally got on the same page as all the other Krogers and made a "you pick six" section. And even though it was at a Kroger we were getting beer, they still had a large selection.

The first beer that I went for was the Sierra Nevada, because I haven't had a beer from them yet that I haven't enjoyed. This beer was no exception! I loved the great flavors of this beer! It had a hint of banana which I found very refreshing.
Next was the Lazy Magnolia Deep South Pale Ale. I wasn't sure if this was going to be very good, but I was wrong. It was very flavorful!
  This was the New Belgium 1554 Black Lager. It was a great dark beer, however I might stay away from drinking to many of those during the Summer months. I think this would be a great Fall and Winter beer.
 This is the Long Board Island Lager. I had never tried this beer before, but it defiantly wasn't for me... compared to all the other beers I had that night, it just kind of fell flat.
 This was the last beer I had for the evening. This is Shiner Ruby Redbird. This is probably going to one of my favorite beers for the rest of my life. I love the taste of ginger, and this beer basically tastes like a alcoholic ginger ale! It was soooo good. The only down side to this beer is that it is a seasonal beer and will most likely go back into hibernation once Fall rolls around. :(
 Here is a pic from the wedding that I attended a few weekends back. Doesn't my Lady look super hot in that dress?! It's hard to see but she made me that red lapel flower. Also I got a chance to wear my new Brooks Brothers. I'm not sure if the slim fit pants are working for me though...
This is just on here because I wanted to say happy freedom day and suck it England! (jk England you know I'm just foolin with you
