anniversary date (the no kid kind!)


On Saturday we were incredibly blessed with an entire night away without kid(s)! This was her first overnight away from parents and home, but our good friends who know her well took marvelous care of her. She got sweaty and dirty and played hard and didn't utter our names once. That's our girl!

We went back to Kansas City and visited the three floors of the River Market Antique Mall before we decided we were tired and ready to eat.

We saw a lot of great things including ...
this great trunk (coffee table anyone?!)

(Above) An incredible Heywood-Wakefield midcentury piece - I almost died. And a great mod-looking orange stove from the 70s. I love that style but am not sure it's MY style.

(Below) And, an ode to my dad. Did you know John Deere's colors were originally yellow and red? This sign is from the very early 20th century. I thought about picking it up for my dad until I saw the tag. "Rare" and $1000 don't fit my budget. Sorry Dad. ;-)

We went to eat at The Farmhouse - a local eaterie with great atmosphere, eclectic staff and an incredible menu. Completely supported by local farms - it's fresh and local! It's pricey, but a great place to celebrate a special occasion. And we did!

Here is my husband of 5 years.

I indulged in a "mocktail" of lavender lemonade - delicious - and we shared an appetizer of fresh, local cheeses with sauces on crisp, salty homemade crackers.

The Farmhouse comes highly recommended! Thanks for sharing in our special weekend. Now on to the next 5 years.
