After Hubby's golf trip back in the summer...we decided that I needed to take a quick trip before Nora arrives for a Momma's Weekend Out! So, I quickly looked at some various possibilities, talked with my bestie, and we decided on a quick overnight trip to Kansas City this past weekend.
The stage production of Mamma Mia was in town so we bought the best available tickets we could buy, made reservations at a fancy seafood restaurant and found a nice hotel nearby. We headed out on Saturday about the same time that Elyse went down for a nap and drove the 3ish hours to our hotel.
We had a fabulous dinner with no kids menus and no "Momma, I need to go potty..."and then we made our way to the theater where we thoroughly enjoyed the Mamma Mia production. And in true Momma-form, we headed back to our hotel, talked for a bit, and then headed to bed early. We laughed as we saw a couple of different bachelorette parties just heading out as we were heading up to bed! We were not ashamed that we were in our pajamas before 11 pm! ha!
And...as luck would have it, the new IKEA opened up in Kansas City about a month ago. The nearest IKEA to us before now was Dallas...an 8 hour drive away! So...these two crazy mommas lost their #ikeavirgin status and spent 3 hours roaming the craziness of IKEA. We had a fabulous time and spent plenty of money but also had plenty of self-control.
It was a refreshing weekend with my favorite girl in the world...and while we might not be able to do this once a month, or even once a quarter, we've already promised ourselves that we'll do it at least once a year! Maybe more mommas can join us next time!
