The weather was beautiful over the weekend when we went to Kansas City to see our son. He had invited us to go to dinner with him and his new lady. We had a great visit and we liked her a lot! She is a cute, sweet girl and was very easy to talk to. Time will tell where this is all headed! I don't ask any questions. Well, not too many.
Our son drove us around the city on Sunday and we crossed the Kit Bond bridge heading into the downtown area. He took us to the West Bottoms area where there are many antique/flea market shops. We only had time to go into a couple of them, but the first one called Re: had 3 floors of wonderful things to look at.
Of course, I pulled my trusty camera out of my purse and snapped a few shots, but it was very busy and I didn't get as many as I would have liked.
They have a lot of old furniture that is painted and I thought the prices on many items were reasonable and others were quite expensive.
I loved browsing around and will definitely have to go back for a longer visit. If you love old things, painted furniture, and repurposed things, then you would love this shop, too!
My son bought the above framed quote to put in his office. I bought a couple of things to add to my gallery wall and will show it another time when I get it all together. Hopefully soon.
Back across the bridge we went, this time heading to Kansas. Kansas City, KS, that is.
Nebraska Furniture Mart is where we were headed after a stop to eat some bbq at Arthur Bryant's. We liked our food, but I think we were unanimous in declaring Gate's BBQ the winner over Bryant's. Gate's sauce is the best! Did I mention that the Gate's restaurant we ate at last time we were in KC burned down just days after we were there? They have several around the city, but I do hope they will build back in the location we were familiar with. Okay, now let's see what I found at NFM.
I've been looking at TV stands for awhile and couldn't find one I really loved. And I have to love it because once I purchase something, I tend to keep it forever. Except I can't keep my oak entertainment center, which I dearly love, because the new tv won't fit and it's just too high for the tv sitting on the top. Anyway, I think I found the one, pictured above. BG liked it, too.
That was my weekend and a fun time was had. You don't want to hear about the stomach virus that hit in the middle of Sunday night and lasted too long. I did get out yesterday to run to the license bureau to get my license renewed before they expired.
Now that the weather has turned warmer I need to get out clothes that are much lighter. If I can find any. That is what I'll be doing the next day or two. Do you have the same problem I do when the seasons change and wonder what you wore the last time?
Happy Wednesday to you!
