Hey everyone! I hope you all had a great weekend!

If you missed it, be sure to enter my Ellie Giveaway, which is open until Wednesday night! Also, I love reading the responses to your favorite places to online shop, and I LOVE that you all are huge Amazon fans too!

So I mentioned that this week is my spring break, so I thought I’d recap my first weekend! I flew home to Kansas City on Friday. I almost missed my flight due to some serious bus back ups (a big accident), I couldn’t even get a cab because so many people were trying to get them to not be late to work! Anyway, I made it with a couple minutes to spare and when I got to my gate I realized Chicago Fire (the pro soccer team in Chicago) was on my flight! Yes, I took a creeper picture (I had to ask a couple guy friends who they were at first…)

The ironic part?! I saw them the next day! Well, in a more expected setting… more on that later. Friday night was a nice relaxing night just hanging out with my parents and watching French Kiss with Meg Ryan. I’d never heard of it (it was made in 1995) but it was cute!

Saturday morning I was up early and did a Jillian Michaels video, followed by 20 minutes of a self-invented boxing workout!

I’d gone to a kickboxing class with Kelsey on Thursday night, and it really got me inspired! We happened to still have an old bag and gloves in my basement, so I put them to good use!

After that, I had brunch with my friend, Benny, and then we headed out to watch the Sporting KC (pro soccer) season opener! I’d never been to a pro soccer game before, so I was really excited to get to go to the game. Oh, and that’s where I saw the Chicago Fire team again!

One thing I learned at the game was that soccer fans are SERIOUS. They go all out and are really great fans. One end of the field felt like a “student section” in the stadium, everyone was all decked out and going crazy, and they had several banners hanging down.

The game itself flew by and, despite the cold, I had a lot of fun watching it. The score was… 0 to 0. Yep, a tie. I guess they don’t do shoot outs?

On the way back home we saw a car with the family stickers on the back, except these had Disney hats and t-shirts… We spent way too much time laughing about this. Also please take note that there was one lonely cat over on the right side of the window (not pictured). We wondered what the cat did to get banished over there…

After the game I went home where my mom, dad, little brother, grandparents and I all had a nice dinner! I absolutely love these family dinners, and spending time with my grandparents (Hi Granann & Jack! – they’re readers). Family is definitely something you appreciate more and more as you get older.

Sunday morning was a bit of a lazy morning for me (despite waking up at 6am…), I had an early breakfast, did a LOT of reading (for FUN!), and then finally headed out the door to run about a million errands. I was exhausted but luckily one of them included the Roasterie, my favorite coffee place in KC!

Sunday evening I had “Girls Night Out” with my mom’s two friends and their daughters who are about my age. It’s our tradition to set up dinner/lots of wine consumption whenever I’m back in town and I absolutely love it.

We had dinner at La Bodega, which is a Spanish restaurant that serves mostly tapas. We shared several tapas and had.. plenty of wine:

And this morning? My mom and I are off to Colorado Springs!
