Hi and happy Friday! What’s been going on with you lately? Here’s some of what’s been keeping me busy, with an emphasis on the fun stuff.
I had dinner with two of my best high school friends last night. Four hours of catching up, telling stories, laughing…we had to leave when the restaurant’s lights came on. We ate at the Bristol because it’s always good and because one of us loves the espresso martinis there and another (me!) the creme brulee.
We have been in wedding shower hosting mode lately. In the last two months, I/we have helped host three showers (one bridal, two couples) and gone to a fourth. My friends and I have it down to a science now. Hosting a shower? Ask me anything! lol
Last weekend we went down to the lake for the first time since New Year’s. It was kind of a relief to open the door and see that everything was good there. Lindsey and Morgan (and Milo) met us down there and we binged on basketball games all weekend. Do you watch the tournament? It’s been the craziest year! Our Jayhawks are still alive though (at least through tonight).
Everyone’s been telling us to watch Ted Lasso and everyone was right…it’s so good! We’re about 3/4 of the way through the first season and my thoughts are: I’m a little afraid of Rebecca, I’m pulling for a certain couple, and Coach Beard may be my favorite character (Tom agrees). We’re also loving all the KC references that Jason Sudekis works in.
A couple of Fridays ago I went with Grant to check out apartments in KC. He’s in grad school at KU and has been living in Lawrence, but will be moving back to KC this summer. He wants to live in the city so we checked out places from the River Market to Quality Hill to the Crossroads (our favorite). It was so fun (and a little exhausting). Between appointments, we grabbed lunch at The Rockhill Grille, and then Tom and Lindsey met us for drinks later at the Crossroads Hotel. Tom and I are kind of intrigued by the idea of downsizing to a place in the city so this gave us lots to talk about. (No immediate plans though!)
I’m adding some standing dates to the calendar in order to make getting together with friends and family easier. My family is trying out a Second Sundays family dinner on, obviously, the second Sunday of the month, and a group of girlfriends is shooting for a Third Thursdays lunch. We’re hoping having a standing date makes the “when are you free?” part unnecessary. Have you ever done anything like this? How did it work out?
