Wonderful Weekend

While I am waiting on my coffee to brew, I will let you know how the weekend went. On Thursday I drove to Great Bend and spent a night there. Friday morning a repair man came to look at the new recliner I bought for my dad. I couldn't figure out how to plug in the massage part of the chair, so of course I felt totally stupid when the repair guy had it working in less than 10 minutes.

We left around 10 am on Friday and got to Kansas City by 2 pm. We ate at the Chili's in the Legends Shopping Center - bad experience. The service was terrible, food was mediocre.

Oh, coffee is done.....

Okay, so we checked in to our hotel. We stayed at the Courtyard Marriott off of Midland. It was nice. I called my brother and we drove over to his townhouse to check it out. He just moved in about three weeks ago. It was big! Later that evening, we had dinner at Choga, a Korean restaurant. Yummy!

On Saturday we woke up, grabbed breakfast and waited for my brother to arrive. We then headed downtown to the City Market. I bought so much fresh produce. I am enjoying the sweet raspberries I bought right now! After walking around the City Market, we ate lunch at Minsky's. It is our favorite pizza place and the this particular location is the best!

After lunch we went to Legends Shopping Center and I bought the kid a bunch of stuff. He got a brand new pair of Nike's from the Finish Line. At American Eagle, I got him two pairs of jeans, a nice dress shirt, a polo, and a hoodie. For myself, I bought some perfume at one of the stores.

By this time we were quite exhausted. We headed back to the hotel to take a short nap and freshen up. For dinner we ate at the Four Seasons Korean Restaurant on Shawnee Mission Parkway. It was good too! My mom knew the owners so we stayed longer than one would normally stay.

Yesterday there was threat of snow, so we caught a big breakfast at Le Peeps. Yumm-O! We said good-bye to my brother and then headed back to Great Bend. I dropped my mom off and headed to Wichita. It was about 5 1/2 hours of drive time all together. But I had a wonderful time and would do it all over again.

Do you normally like Chilis? We had one open in Banff last year and I've been there quite a few times... in fact going tomorrow for lunch with a friend. We'll probally both have the QUESADILLA EXPLOSION salad cuz it's really yummy.

LOL I am glad you referenced the word "chair" in your post, because the word "recliner" looked like it was "redliner," because of the font I guess, and I was like what the heck is that?!?!
