Our weekend started off on Friday morning with a 250 meter swim and a 50 minute spinning class with my favorite instructor, Shiela. I am really loving her classes. After quick showers at the gym, we headed out to Kansas City for Jen and Justin’s wedding festivities.
Once we checked into our hotel, we started getting ready for the rehearsal. A quick run through at the Temple, then off to Houlihan’s with Jenny, Lauren and Matt for drinks. Dinner was at Garozza’s Italian Restaurant, and consisted of Pesto Ravioli (Yummy!), Salad, Chicken Speidini, Tomato Penne and Cannoli. We had a lovely evening, listened to some silly stories about the bride and groom and then zipped back to the hotel for an early bedtime.
Saturday, we woke up to a cold, gloomy day. What a better way to spend it than in search of a farmers market. Some friends told us about the City Market. It wasn’t very busy (since it was cold and rainy) but we scored a few good finds. Jalapeño Cheddar bread, Sun dried tomato basil dip, and Jalapeño Jam. We finished our afternoon off with lunch at Gates BBQ, a Kansas City Tradition, and a nice nap before the wedding.
The wedding ceremony was really nice and we had a great time dancing, eating wedding cake and doing tequila shots with the bride! After the reception, what could be better than IHOP at 1am!
We finished up our weekend away with a Sunday morning brunch dedicated to the newlyweds.
Thanks so much to Justin and Jenifer for a wonderful weekend &
for allowing us to be a part of their special day!
