Hello all , we went to Kansas City from March 22nd through March 26th during the kids Spring break . I incorporated part 1 into my dress of the week post here
We stayed at the beautiful Homewood suites by Hilton close to the Kansas speedway. It is in the area called Village west.
We found an authentic Kansas city Restaurant the first evening called Q39 in Overland Park. It did not dissapoint ! The kids went swimming in the hotel pool after returning from eating. On the morning of Sunday March 24th I found a local church to attend . Then after eating we went to Chicken n pickle in North Kansas City where we played whiffleball which is similar to tennis. We did our best but will need to take lessons! In the afternoon we went to union station
It is a beautiful old building , Look at the ceiling! Inside is science city a fun place for kids of all ages!
We didn’t participate in the life sized chess or checkers! We arrived back in the evening to Village west and went to a local restaurant. Then we took a stroll around legends outlet
It was more window shopping than shopping but it was still nice!
The pool got used again that night before bed and we were all tired and ready for sleep!
On Monday the 25th March after breakfast ( the hotel lays on a fabulous Breakfast!) we went to the money museum of the federal reserve bank of Kansas City. this was a fun visit and entry is free.
The money wall which is about 5 feet tall is $40 million dollars long I captured $20 million worth. When we were leaving we each got to take a shredded bag of money worth about $165! That is it for part 2 . I will conclude with part 3 soon, Terri xo.
Good morning Ladies !! If you are in the USA or the UK I hope you are enjoying a long weekend of relaxation and fun. It is the unofficial start of Summer and the temps are staying cool here. We had a lot of rain during the week which was good for growth. The flowers are starting to bloom nicely. Today is going to reach 71f or 21c with sun . Last night we had a fire in our new backyard pit and roasted marshmallows . The kids love it! We are planning to go to the zoo as the kids love animals. We don’t have any other definite plans, maybe we will invite friends over and hangout. We have a weekend free of softball. Then it starts off on Monday again with practice and midweek games before a tournament thru next weekend.
My Uncle Owen passed away on Monday last . He had gone through a lot of health issues during the past 5 years . His family were sad but happy he was free from suffering. I didn’t make it to the funeral which is one of the issues you have when moving to a different country. May he rest in the peace of God’s love and Mercy, amen.

Good morning Ladies and welcome to a wet and thundery Minnesota! We are due to have 3 or 4 days of rain coming up which will be good for growth. Our daughters softball tournament was cancelled this weekend due to the weather. It will be a time to spend indoors I think!!
Last weekend we celebrated Mothers day with Church first and a relaxing day with the kids and some little gifts. They bought some trays of pretty planting flowers that still have to be planted, oops ! Then we went to a restaurant that was on the bucket list for a while that we have wanted to visit since before the kids were born! It did not dissapoint and had a nice selection for all taste buds! I hope you had a nice day if you celebrated last Sunday also.

Good morning ladies , how is your weekend going. I want to start off by wishing all the Moms who follow me in the United States and Canada a happy Mothers day ! I know it is different in the U.K. and Ireland ( It is the 4th Sunday of Lent a tradition going way back celebrating Mary the mother of Jesus) So my Mom has already celebrated hers! All you Mom’s deserve a little pampering tomorrow.
Last weekend was taken up with softball and a tournament 20 miles away on Saturday and Sunday. Our Daughters team had mixed results but did enough to qualify for nationals coming up. It is 20 miles away in a different direction so no hotel stays, last year the 12u was in south Dakota! The Monday thru Friday was pretty routine . On Thursday our neighbor gave the two older boys a ride in his yellow convertible car! It actually is his Mom’s car that he borrowed, he listed his own car for sale and it sold in hours so he was without for a few days , and the boys were so happy to go in a sports car! Today is curbside clean up day where the city picks up unwanted household or garage items once a year. We start putting stuff out on Thursday for Saturday collection and then the people looking for scrap or just a good find circle around the neighborhoods in trucks and sometimes trailers attached looking for a piece of treasure. You know what they say One persons trash is another’s treasure!
I had so much fun with the customizable eshakti dresses last week I want to feature one again!! This week I have picked out the Georgette wrap large rose floral print dress with tie waist see here The model is wearing the short sleeve ready to buy dress below and the one I added sleeves to is the customizable one!
Have a beautiful weekend , I hope the sun shines for you, Terri xoxo.
Good morning Ladies and welcome to May! I am so excited , the flowers will be starting to bloom soon, right now the stems are at 3 inches . May started off with my Sisters wedding anniversary on May 1st (10 years) and her Birthday on May 2nd! What a great start to May for her and also it is a holiday on Monday in Ireland!
We had a nice quiet weekend gone by , we got outdoors which is good. It has taken longer than I wanted for Spring to get here. I got some sad news during the week, the Priest (pastor ) that baptized me all those years ago and also officiated as the celebrant at our wedding 15 years ago passed away. He was a lovely man and so positive always. May he rest in the peace of God’s love.
Today we have softball for our daughter , there are games at 11am , 3pm and 6pm! It is only 20 miles away which is good.
