If you made it over to the new site, congrats! :) I know I'm having some technical difficulties in the switch. But I hope to have them all figured out by the end of the week! :) The bloglovin' feed should be transferred soon and I will be going to past posts and fixing links to each post. Unfortunately I cannot fix all links to pintrest pins. :/ But if you would be ever so kind to repin any of my blog posts that you have loved or used in the past, that would be insanely fantastic.
Now that all the boo things are done, I'll share some more exciting things!! And by exciting, I mean whats been going on in my life. :) I hope you don't mind a little journal post.
We left town on Thursday. We had a 6 hour car drive! Which we enjoy usually. Road trips are the best: we jam out, have deep conversation, and I get to take a nap. :) And we get all the best junk food.
Friday was a few hours of homework and getting to sleep in at a hotel. Then we went out to one of the best BBQ places that I have every been too! It threw me for a loop at first when I discovered that the BBQ place with a rating of 9.7 and the best in Kansas City was actually based in a gas station!! A GAS STATION! And it had the parking and room to sit to prove it! Another thing that amazed me when we got there was the incredible line to order food! Seriously, this is a well loved BBQ place! The line was wrapped around all the way to the door and all the seating was taken. Joe's Kansas City Bar-B-Que is no sit and chill place to eat but it has the best BBQ and fries I have ever tasted.
But seriously. The fries. I would travel 12 hours every day to get that BBQ and fries for dinner every day. If you are ever in Kansas City, you should really try it out! Maybe order out though. But it really is a great atmosphere so maybe you should just eat in!
Then came Saturday, so while I was stuck in a hotel room transferring this blog all day, Simeon was off being a wonderful human being and winning 1st place for his physics post at a research conference!! He was then able to be inducted into Sigma Xi, the hosts of the conference. Then he brought me Chick-fil-a for dinner as compensation for not having a car to be able to go anywhere fun. But it was for the best anyway as I got a ton of work done!
Sunday was a crazy day. We had to wake up extra early to check out of the hotel room before going to Simeon's induction ceremony. Then came my favorite part of the entire weekend! THE AQUARIUM! Yes, I am a child when it comes to zoos or aquariums! I run around squealing like a little girl. Ask Simeon, I keep him laughing the entire time. After we went through and has picked our trip souvenir, we went on to check out the World War I monument and museum in Kansas City. It was insanely informative as it not only shared American history but European history as well. And had a very well executed informational video with a trench scene built below you that was incredibly emotional.
