bachey business! {kansas city}

Two days after Christmas, we all loaded up and headed to Eureka Springs {so Allison thought!}  We were really going to Kansas City!!  WAHOO!  Most of us had never been before, so we were excited to say the least!  Anna had framed the REAL invite we had all gotten in the mail telling us we were going to KC....she opened it, read it and screamed!  Ha!  Crazy girl thought we were going to a cabin in the woods for the weekend...UMMM, NO MAM! ;)
We found her some drinks at a gas station as we got closer to KC!  Drink up pretty lady! ;)
Classy bar set up in the hotel room!  :P
Little pre dinner fun at the hotel bar before heading out!  {Me, Brooke, Anna, Allison & Hannah!} PS we all went to preschool together!
The first night we ate at Brio.  It was in the Plaza with our hotel, so we could take a shuttle any where in the Plaza for free--and that was definitely the way to go!  Back to Brio...would highly recommend it!  Unique setting, great staff, and delicious food!  I got the grilled salmon and for the most part I couldn't' taste it because I was getting over a sinus infection, but it had a semi-crunchy texture to it that made it really unique.  I hate that I was eating such fancy food and couldn't taste it...but everybody else at the table that got salmon ate all of their's as well!

Our waiter thought it was Allison's birthday and brought her this little dessert...ha!  We didn't object to a free dessert though of course!  
Saturday we threw on some clothes and headed out to the Plaza to see what we could find!  We had brunch at The Classic Cup!  Fantastic restaurant with some of the most delicious food, but the staff wasn't our favorite.  
After brunch, we had to get some Starbucks to help us with our shopping!  We got so lucky that it was FREEZING while we were there--a little chilly, but not nearly what it could have been!  You could most definitely tell who was from up there and who wasn't though by the way they were dressed!  Ha!  
We visited and learned some stuff at "The Art of Shaving"...
Then....Anna had set up our own pole dancing class!  OH MY WORD!  SO MUCH FUN!!  & not as trashy as I'm sure you are thinking--you know you've always wanted to learn how to spin around those things!  :P  Well...we did!  A total blast and if you ever get the chance to do it yourself, don't hold back!  It was just us and the instructor and she made us feel so comfortable!  She actually offers "Polga" which is pole dancing and yoga put together!  So wish I could try it out!

We kinda skipped out on lunch that day, since we had had brunch, but we were fine!  After our class we went back to the hotel to get ready for the evening!  But, what was so nice was that we didn't have to fix out hair, because we were going to a dry bar to get that done!
Seriously...one of the funnest things!  We had the place to ourself and everyone was just SO SO nice and kept telling us how fun people from AR were!  Ha!  This was a TRUE Dry Bar that didn't cut or color hair...only did blow outs!  So wish we had one here!
Believe it or not...this is 3/4th of the All Girl State Champion stunt group in 2006--just missing our flyer Mal!
The "Parlor" at the Plaza--check it!  Owner is Meg and so sweet!  
I'm not one for selfies, but I LOVED how my hair turned out!
Then off to din at McCormick's & Schmidt's!  YUM once again-with a beautiful view of the city!
Lettuce wedge salad!
Dell had thought ahead and gotten us all 5 hour energy drinks!
We had a coupon for a free "Chocolate Bag".  OMG.  Let's just say wow.  Dark chocolate bag with fruit inside, raspberry sauce and whip cream.  Need I say more?
Then it was time for some Power and Lights.  This is an unexplainable place until you've been...GREAT for a Bachey party for sure!  We had fun making our rounds!  

It was pretty empty from what we heard...this is usually FULL of people.  It's "outside" but it's not.
Sunday morning we were up and at'um headed back home.  Let's just say the weather took a turn over night and we were UNPREPARED!  It was 12 degrees and snowing when we left...and most of us were wearing t shirts with a little jacket....DEFINITELY NOT enough!  Anna had to get us gas and had to use a blanket to cover her face it was so frigid out there!

Over all....fantastic weekend and I'm so glad my sickies didn't keep me from going!  If you're planning a Bachey party and live close, KC is fantastic!  KC & Savannah are my two fav Bachey party location getaways for sure!
