We've always talked about picking up and going to Kansas City on the spur of the moment. I don't know why we picked Kansas City, except that there's a sign on the interstate by our house that says Kansas City. At any rate, now that we're getting closer to having kids (woot!), I sort of assumed that would always be more of our inside joke, rather than reality.
So, imagine my surprise when Dave called me over what I thought was his lunch break last Friday.
Dave: "Hi honey....what are you doing?
Kelli: "Making lunch. What's up?"
Dave: "Want to go to Kansas City for the night?"
Kelli: :::stunned silence::::
Dave: "You there?"
We packed and left within about 45 minutes, and although the number of things we forgot to pack was at an all-time high, we had a great time.
We stayed in a downtown hotel (which we got an AMAZING deal on!), and walked to a restaurant in the downtown area, Gordon Bierch.
It was so fun to walk around and just spend time together!
The next morning we had breakfast at a little cafe, but I didn't love the coffee there. So...we walked along until we found a cute little coffee shop! Their coffee was delicious.
It had all these fancy paper snowflakes hanging up. It made the space feel all warm and cozy! I wish I knew how to make some....
After that, we walked back to our hotel, spent some time reading together, then packed up and left. It was a quick trip, but we had a great time!
It was a great birthday present. Thanks honey!
