I had a great time! Our hostesses, Lori, Brenda, and Amanda had a busy schedule planned out for us. Since I got there a day early I was able to do a little sightseeing. Went to a cute town - Lees Summit, visited a local wine bar and scrapbook store. The next day we visited a very cute cupcake bar Sugar Mamma's. The lunch there was awesome, the decor of the place was really cute. Loved the bathroom! We then went and visited the shops within the strip center - Briarcliff Village. I found out through one of the shop vendors that all the shops in the shopping center are exculsive to Kansas City. I loved Urban Arts and Crafts! The shop was like a very down-scaled Michaels with classes for different crafts. From there we went to the airport to pick up two more girls arriving for the retreat -Michelle and Misty. Then onto the gorgeous house offered to us by Lori's brother for the weekend. We did a little scrapping that evening, but mostly just enjoyed each other's company. Saturday was packed - visited a local scrapbook store, toured the Plaza in Kansas City, and then on to dinner at GoJo's Japanese Steak House. We spent most of Sunday catching up on scrapbooking we had not done - afterall we have to account for the fact it was a SCRAPBOOK RETREAT! Then in the evening did fireworks at Lori's house. Our California girls do not get a chance to experience the 4th of July bonfire of fireworks like the rest of us because they are outlawed in Cali.
Monday came and it was time to go back home :(. The trip was a great taste of Kansas City flavor, shopping fun and great friendship reunions! Can't wait to see the girls again next year!
