Back home safe and sound in the ATL.
I was a bit worried that the trip to KC would eat up the weekend and leave me feeling uber drained this morning, but it was quite the opposite. Hip hip hooray! I think something about flying to and from a place in such a small time frame messed with our heads or something. Mix that with an active Friday night and an early Sunday flight and it was like we snuck in a long weekend. Score!
Friday after work I meet up with Mike and his classmates for some drinks at Ormsby's.
|Mike destroyed me in shuffleboard. What a jerk.|
This bar is seriously awesome. They have darts and shuffleboard and BOCCE...in a BAR! How cool is that?? Well, not as cool as the hook and ring game we ended up playing obsessively.
|I think Dave is trying to coach me in the bottom pic. No luck.|
If you aren't familiar with this one, let me break it down for you. There's a hook on the wall and ring attached to a string hanging from the ceiling. Your goal is to swing the ring forward and hook it on the hook. Now there's a very subtle art to this game, but the addictive part comes from the built-in rebouding every time you miss. It's like,"Oh you missed? No worries. Here, try again....and again...and again..."
Saturday we got into KC right in time for lunch and went with my parents to Fud in KC, MO.
|Check out the gold walls. Pretty snazzy.|
An entirely vegan menu,Yay! The unanimous favorite dish was our appetizer, the nachos with jack chckn.
|Om, nom, nom|
And for dessert a Tiger shake: caramel ice cream with a chocolate swirl :)
After lunch and a quick stroll around the hood, we made our way back to the hotel. Our room was epic!
I've never had a corner hotel room before. That means two views, guys.
|Campus and Kansas.|
We were right on the Kansas campus (Rock Chalk Jayhawk). So much so that our room came with a sound machine and earplugs. Though neither were needed, check out the cute note on the plugs.
It was an awesome day for a wedding. Sunny and 60, a perfect fall day. Everything was beautiful Mike and I were able to kick back, enjoy some drinks, and cut loose on the dance floor.
Oh and I still let out an "eeeeeeeee!" whenever I see my new name anywhere official.
