Kansas City Weekend Update

This past weekend, I went to Kansas City for Ashley M's bachelorette party!! It was a blast, such a fabulous weekend with a great group of women.


Friday Breakdown
-Got off work at 11:00 and drove straight to Iowa City to hitch a ride with my sister
-Spent the next 4.5 hours in the car chatting and singing :)
-Got to KC before my aunt was off work so we stopped at this ghetto Burlington Coat Factory that had a broken AC and I bought a $12.00 dress!
-Met Tonja and Melanie and went to the 54th Stree Diner, YUMM
-Went out to this sports bar and played shuffleboard and had some great drinks
I didn't think about the rearview mirror
Loves driving!
Enjoying some M&S
Missed the "Welcome to Missouri" sign, this'll do! 
Shuffleboard!
Emily and her crazy spinning tactics.
Aunt Tonja
Emily's still smiling for the camera even after she lost to Mel and me! :)
Saturday Breakdown
-Breakfast at the Corner Cafe with Tonja
-Met Mallory at the Embassy Suites to pick up some snacks and drinks
-Ate lunch at the hotel while waiting for early check-in
-The girls started arriving at 2:00
-We gave all the girls a Boulevard beer to drink as a clue to what our first event would be
-Toured Boulevard Brewery, it was awesome!
-Played some games, took some shots, gave some prizes in the hotel room
-Enjoyed free drinks at the Manager's Reception
-Headed to the Power & Light District to Drunken Fish for some delicious sushi
-Got free Sake shots for having to wait so long to get our table (we had reservations)
-Out in the P&L district! It was hot and sweaty, but we danced the night away and it was a blast!  You'll notice the pictures get sweatier...lol
-When we got back to the hotel, we had Ashley answer some questions that Andy also answered, they are a great match! 















Sunday Breakdown

-We packed up, said our goodbyes and checked out
-Emily and I met our aunt for lunch before leaving
-6 hour drive home, BLAH



It was a great weekend with family and friends! It was fun celebrating Ashley and her upcoming marriage.  I think she got some much needed girl time and a break from wedding planning.  Oh, and I can't believe I almost posted this with out including the highlight of the weekend!  While dancing in the courtyard, two guys started having a dance off.  Ashley decided to mimic one of the guys and it was hilarious!
