This weekend I jetted off to Kansas City with my mother-in-law and family friend. My sister-in-law and family friend's daughter live in KC, so we decided to have a little girl's weekend. The boys all went skiing, so did they really think we all were just going to sit at home?
Early Saturday morning we headed north. We arrive in KC around 8:30am. We lounged at the girl's apartment until it was time to get ready for brunch at Cooper's Hawk.
By the time we sat down for brunch at 11:45am, I had already been up for almost nine hours, so I was too starving to take a picture of my delicious meal. They have the most amazing amazing pretzel bread! For my entree I got parmesan crusted chicken. There was not a morsel left on anyone's plate.
After brunch we packed our stuffed little bodies into the car and headed to the mall. My SIL and friend wanted ankle boots like mine, so we were on the hunt. I think we walked away with four pairs for two people, so I'd say the trip was a success.
We went back to the apartment to get ready for dinner at The Capital Grille. At dinner we had more than enough wine, steak, lobster mac and cheese, mashed potatoes, and dessert. It was all to die for. Good thing I packed my stretchy pants!!
After dinner we headed back to Cooper's Hawk to do a wine tasting. Along the way we stopped in at Sperry and my SIL ended up buying these booties and decided she would return one of the pairs she bought earlier that day.
We ended the night with more than enough wine in our system and enough laughs to make our bellies hurt.
Sunday we woke up and headed to brunch at Louie's Wine Dive. It was a really cute restaurant in the Waldo area of Kansas City. The only problem was that it was so loud. Literally, we were yelling across the table. The brick walls and wood floors did not absorb any of the sound.
After brunch we did a little more shopping then headed back to my SIL's to relax before we caught our evening flight.
It was such a fun weekend getaway and seemed like we were there way longer than 48 hours. I'm so glad we booked this trip on a whim!! Cheers to being young and sorta spontaneous!
