Kansas City Friends’ Visit

Posted on April 30, 2019 by under Life.    

As if life weren’t crazy enough, the weekend immediately following our Austin weekend, my friends’ from Kansas City came down to visit. Lucky for us, the house was somewhat clean so at least we didn’t have to spend all day cleaning before my friends arrived.

The girls (from left: Mary Ann, Molly, and Joy) came down on Saturday morning and went straight to my 10:30 AM Zumba class. I loved how they wore coordinating outfits. Unfortunately, no one told me what colors to wear. LOL.

Untitled

I was over the moon that they included Zumba as part of their itinerary. Naturally, we had to take a group photo because it’s not every Saturday that I have these lovely ladies in class.

After class, the four of us met Brian and grandma at Carrabba’s for brunch. They already got a table and were waiting at the restaurant.

Untitled

I thought it was great that they were able to meet grandma.

Untitled

Here are some pictures of our food.

The limoncello French toast was my absolute favorite.

If you’ve never had brunch at Carrabba’s, it really is worth checking out. The food is good and there are no lines (unlike other places). I think it’s because most people don’t know they’re serving brunch.

Untitled

After brunch, Brian took grandma home. The girls followed me home where we got cleaned up before our next adventure.

Untitled

The four of us went down to the Keeper and took some pics.

Then we went to the Wichita Art Museum to check out the opening of the new Georgia O’Keeffe: Art, Image, Style exhibit.

I didn’t take pics of the actual exhibit. You’ll just have to go see it before it’s over. LOL.

Untitled

After the museum we were going to go to the Nifty Nuthouse until we realized that the store was already closed. We ended up killing some time at Lucinda’s before dinner at Sabor.

Untitled

Molly and Mary Ann enjoyed some drinks while we were waiting for a table.

Untitled

These food pics may seem out of order because Joy ordered her dessert first.

Untitled

She also likes to get hot water and honey (below).

Untitled

We had the fried plantain chips, which you always have to get when dining at Sabor. I don’t think I got a pic of it, though.

Untitled

Untitled

The food pics aren’t that exciting because everyone decided to order tacos. LOL.

Untitled

Brian and I split the adobo pork, which is my absolute favorite thing (among other things) to get when I’m there.

Untitled

I like that they split it for us so we didn’t have to do it ourselves and make a mess.

Untitled

Here’s a pic of the tres leches cake, which is another restaurant must have.

Untitled

Obligatory group selfie at dinner.

Untitled

We had a little pajama party at the end of the evening. Joy struggled to stay awake. But who can blame her? They had an early morning. I’m pretty sure they left Kansas City around seven o’clock in the morning or earlier in order to make it to Andover for my Zumba class.

Untitled

We played some card games before calling it a night. We didn’t get too crazy. The girls hung out for a bit the next morning before heading out. Here’s our final group pic (at least, until their next visit).

It was so nice having the girls in town. I’ve missed hanging out with them since I quit working in Kansas City. I’m super grateful that they finally made it down for a visit. I can’t wait until next time!
