This weekend Andrew and I are taking a trip to St. Louis, MO!
My friend got married last weekend, and this weekend is the reception. (Different yes, but long story short she is Islamic/Muslim)
Since her husband had to drive 4 hours each way to pick her up for the long wedding day festivities the reception/party is being held tomorrow night.
That means Andrew gets to work and then we will make the 4 hour trek.
We're staying by the airport. Figured it was an easy location to head in and out of town from. The reception is being held 35 minutes from the hotel, but eh.
So tomorrow we leave around 3pm. Arrive shortly around 7:30 and will check in/get ready really fast.
The reception starts at 7pm, but everyone is "foreign" as my friend says, meaning most of the guests made the trip from another country and they are always running late.
So I am not too worried about showing up a bit late to the start of the reception. I bet it starts as we get there. HA.
Any who after we hit that up we will be spending one night in St. Louie.
Sunday we plan to hit up the zoo and the Budweiser brewery tour!! Both are FREE. Also maybe the arch. But I LOVE FREE THINGS. We plan to park else where and walk so we don't have to dish out insane amounts of money for parking.
Meal wise we're planning cheap stops. Aka McD's for breakfast....yeah. Only on road trips for me folks.
After we make those two-three stops Sunday, we will make the 4 hour drive home. :)

Monday 6/10 Royals game vs Detroit Tigers. Royals kicked butt. :)
Andrew and I at the Royals game. On the Boulevard deck.
It was SUPER HOT out that day with humidity.
Had to go to a lower seat section to wait for the sun to do down a bit.
Old one on the left and freshly washed. New one on the right.
Love my turtle pillow pets. Couldn't bare to part with the old one.
This week consisted of getting my hours cut at work due to it not being busy enough for 3 people to be on the clock until certain points in the day. Basically late lunch time.
Also worked on homework. I have my first test due this weekend, wish me luck. So sorry there aren't more entertaining pics.
What did you do this week?
Oh and last night I decided to change up the blog look a bit. I changed the background, some font colors, and removed a few things from the side columns. Would love to be able to have a different blog button and a header, but I think it looks cute for now. :) It was time for a change. Thoughts on it?! Have a good weekend.
So today happens to be Flag Day, AMERICA! Heck yeah!
That holiday also happens to fall on my brother's birthday. My not so little any more brother turned 19 today!
He is officially OLD. What happened to those days when I was in kindergarten and he was in pre-school....the days when we watched Blue Clues together. Yes before the Steve guy went all crazy and the put the new weird guy on the show. Also before we found out Blue was a girl and Magenta was a boy. Ha.
Any way he got his main ticket item-the latest (I think) Xbox. He was thrilled about it as you can tell. It was the only picture he smiled for the whole night. He hates having his picture taken.
Happy Birthday Carter!
Well this weekend started out boring as heck.
Andrew had a guys night with his bffs....so I was stuck at home doing nothing. None of my friends were free, sad day.
That morning a I had interview with a job recruiter....so hopefully she can help me find something soon. I dread going to work and just don't love my job any more. Plus I need something that better suits me and a job that I make enough to support myself on. Student loans need to be re-paid people.
Friday night I sat on the couch messing around on the ipad and watched the weather channel-the tornados in OK, IL, and MO were happening. Scary stuff let me tell you. We had flash flooding in KS that morning...luckily the water went down pretty fast and I never actually saw flooding other than on the news.
Peonies from the side of our house. They smell very strongly.
Saturday night I had plans to go out with friends to the legends. We ate at the Yard House, the restaurant has over 130 beers. I'm not a beer drinker, so we went b/c of the boys.
Andrew's friend Dustin was in town on vaca from the Army....so he chose the place.
The food was really yummy and the guys enjoyed the beers.
I flat ironed my hair for only the second time in a long time.
LONG HAIR DON'T CARE SELFIE ALERT.
After dinner we decided to hit up another bar for drinks and the bar was handing out glow sticks. Dustin had a little too much fun with these there and on the ride home.
I didn't drink at all that night. I am not a beer fan and didn't want to spend money.
