River Market

River Market Kansas City

Two weekends ago, my parents were in town.  So, the hubster and I decided to show them a bit of Kansas City.  One of the places that was a "no brainer" to take them was the River Market near downtown KC.

The River Market area is one of Kansas City's oldest neighborhoods and is home to...well, a market.  It is an indoor/outdoor shopping area home to unique boutiques, shops, marts, and restaurants.  There is also fresh produce for sale, as well.  It's called River Market because it's a stone's throw away from the Missouri River (that runs through Kansas City and is the dividing line between Kansas City, KANSAS, and Kansas City, MISSOURI).

My mom decided to grab a snack at "Taste of Brazil", which happens to be one of my favorite eateries in the market.  I, however, chose to scarf down a few beignets while sipping on sugar cane juice.

All in all, it was another beautiful day in KC.

Birthday Behavior

Guess who has a birthday today???




THIS GIRL.



Since I'm posting an outfit on my blog today, my birthday, I thought I'd go out on a bit of a limb.  For me, that is wearing a pair of short-shorts!  You know, by today's standards, these shorts probably aren't that short.  For me they really are.  First of all, I hardly ever wear shorts and when I do, they are usually denim with about a 3-inch inseam.  I don't know exactly when I became so conservative.  Natural progression maybe?  Part of getting older?



Either way, I am a fairly firm believer in "if you got it (and it still looks good), flaunt it".  Perhaps I should apply this to myself more often.

Oh, and since it's my birfday.  It's only right I leave you all with a little birthday "jig".



I've been having a lot of fun with the GIFs lately. I can't help myself.

Shout out to my fellow Cancers!

T-Rex



t-rex cafe

This past weekend, the fam and I had lunch at T-Rex Cafe at The Legends Outlet Mall.  I don't have that much to write about it, except to say that the food was better than I'd thought it would be and the boys had a great time!  The restaurant has a rainforest-y feel with life-sized dinosaurs that make noises and move.  There are a few really big aquariums filled with all kinds of tropical fish, as well.

Kente

Hello, readers!  I just thought I'd share a quick post showcasing my latest thrift store find.  Can you believe I found this Kente cloth shirt from the Goodwill??!  This is definitely a case of "Goodwill hunting" gone RIGHT.
