Catching up and a WINNER!!!

Hello friends! I've been MIA the past few days! LOTS going on! :) I'll give you the short version!

Thursday was my blogiversary...hard to believe 2 years ago I was in a much different place! If you missed my post make sure to go check it out here!

Friday was work like normal and then we spent the evening w/my family! Always love family time! :)

Saturday was an unexpected road trip to Kansas City!! I packed my bags quick...

Had some cereal in my favorite bowl...

And my sister, Mindi, and I hit the road!! She had a wedding to go to and I was going along for the ride & to surprise my friend who lives in KC!

We had a few snacks along the way...

Some healthy...

Some, not so much! But I counted out my serving! ;) The 4+ hour trip flew by, I always enjoy sister time!!

Our first stop was the Legends at Village West Outlet mall!!

Mindi made friends with some "animals"!!

We couldn't shop on an empty stomachs though! We made a quick stop at Five Guys, a new try for me!

I got the "little" burger, but there wasn't much that was little about it! ;) But it was one good burger!

Mindi's got the little burger too...but went "all the way" with her toppings!

Word the wise, if you go to Five Guys, get the regular fries! Our little container was overflowing. We barely made a dent in them!

We shopped the afternoon away and I made a quick call to my friend, Jenna. She had NO idea I was in town and was TOTALLY surprised!! I love surprises!!!

We met up downtown at The Plaza for some more shopping. It was EXTRA fun to see her because she recently got ENGAGED!!! For supper we hit up one of my favorites, Cheddars!

We had their homemade onion rings...LOVE these!!

And I got the chicken tender wrapper! I think they changed something on it though 'cause it wasn't the same as past times. Why mess with a good thing?!?!

We enjoyed supper and met up with my sister from Omaha, Stef, who was also in town for a wedding. It was a fun girls night! Oh and Jenna asked me to be a bridesmaid!!! Can't wait for your big day Jenna, you're going to make a gorgeous bride!!!

Sunday involved sleeping in, more shopping, and Mindi & I made the drive home! We didn't get back till after midnight though! I was one tired girl!! It was worth it, such a fun weekend!

Now on to some blog business!! My first giveaway ended yesterday and I used random.org to choose a winner.

Comment #3, my good [blog] friend & fellow Iowan Alyssa from over at A Journey to Thin said:

Congrats Alyssa!!

Ok, so question for you guys! Do you enjoy last minute trips? Or are you a planner & don't like to change plans? I'm usually a planner, but I didn't have a whole lot going on and figured "what the heck"!! Glad I did! :)

What a great weekend Darci! Glad you had so much fun, and those onion rings look AH-MAZ-ING!

I usually like to plan trips well in advance, but every once in a while a good spur of the moment getaway really hits the spot...

Looks like a great trip! Five guys is DELICIOUS. We have on in Charlottesville- and 3 people can split one fry!

Glad you had a good weekend and got to get out of town for a bit.

I'm so excited to have won!! Awesome giveaway! :)

Looks like a really fun trip. I miss Cheddars. The one that used to be in my hometown closed down- I loved their Cheddar Cheese soup!

I love any trip! Planned or spur of the moment!

I would love a last minute trip, but since we have animals and what not, it doesn't happen very often. Love the pics, I have been to all of those places :o)

Looks like a fun weekend with lots of fabulous food.

I enjoy last minute trips very much when my family life allow it. With children it's a bit different but we do try for "Spur of the moment" trips once in a while.

Whew...5 Guys!!! I had my first 5 Guys experience last year. Boy it's good, and WAY too many fries for both DH and I to finish!

I love last minute trips! They seem so fun to me.

Jenna Marie said...
