Kansas City

I will be heading home in the morning but I wanted to share a few photos from the trip. 

Yesterday at Arthur Bryant's Barbeque - a Kansas City landmark.
With my uncle Brian, my dad, (me)  cousins Mary, Jack and Annie,
 aunt Maggie, and cousin Elle. I love them all.
Then we saw Mission Impossible 4 at the IMAX. 
Dad and me right before Trans-Siberian Orchestra - maybe the weirdest
show I'ver ever seen. If I were to give it a title it would be "Christmas".
I won't get into it, but read here if you want to know what it was like.
Neither of us knew what to expect, but we made the best of it together.

Inky (our stray stalker kitty) has been living with Chris, Jeremy's Twin, for more than a month now. Turns out she is a he, and that he loves living inside particularly with Chris.

Several weeks ago we finished our kitchen update, but like a bad blogger I am just now supplying you with pictures.

The light fixture is from Ikea, and the underside of the soffit is navy blue (Valspar - Night Shift). There was some speculation that I had chosen some shade of purple when the paint was still wet, but it is like blueberries the blueberries are blue (the dry color) but the juice (wet paint) looks a little purple. (Up next: painting the cabinets, I only have to convince my husband it will be worth all the work.)

We also hosted an awesome surprise birthday party for Amanda's husband, Patrick. It was way too fun, and I love all of our friends!

Last weekend,  we were able to witness the marriage of my college friend Elizabeth to her high school boyfriend (Michael) Silver. It was a beautiful and light hearted ceremony that suited them both. Elizabeth was is a beautiful bride, inside and out. I was able to play double duty as friend and florist, which was fun for me. When I put up flower pictures for work I will show you too. 

It was like a mini college reunion! It was wonderful to see my Olivet friends and roommates. 

And yesterday I traveled to Kansas City to visit my dad. I flew through O'Hare and got a beautiful view of the city and all its lights at night (I tried to capture it but it doesn't do the view justice).
