Kansas Trip!

Well I might be the worst sister ever for not visiting my sister in Kansas for over a year after she moved there... But I think last weekend made up for it! Dave and I hit the road to Kansas later than we had anticipated, and ended up getting there around 2 am! That's the beauty in getting a new job I guess - not being able to ask off that is. We had fun though, I slept a little and then got mad at myself for not bringing anything to read. We finally got there and the hotel is awesome! My mom picked a great Marriott in the power and light district in Kansas City. Highly reccomend!

We woke up early Saturday morning and headed to Lawrence for the OU vs. KU game. Lawrence is absolutely beautiful! I couldn't get enough of all the tall trees that were changing colors for fall and the campus area is much bigger than Norman's! I loved their campus corner too - it was awesome! They have an urban outfitters on their campus corner! Jealous!

Here's some pics from the tailgate:

After the family weekend tailgate we walked to the campus corner area to watch the game, stopped by the Theta house to see where Juls lives and they're right next to the Beta house! So of course Dave and I had to get a pic outside the KU beta house! We watched the game at Buffalo Wild Wings it was so much fun! And luckily OU won! After the game we headed back to Kansas City and walked from the hotel to dinner at the Gordon Biersch brewery which was yummy!

Sunday we woke up and headed to the Plaza for some shopping! Anthropologie, J.Crew, American Apparel, Kansas City has it all!
It was so great to finally see where Juls is living and to meet some of her fun friends! I can't wait to go back!  Thanks for showing us a good time in Kansas Juls! Love ya!
