September Happenings

Monday, September 14, 2015
September is here and I'm packing away my white jeans and sun dresses with mixed emotions. I do love the long, warm days of summer but I really love the crisp, spicy evenings spent on our patio with the chiminea going and a glass of red wine in hand.  I can't believe how fast this summer flew by! September is already going by just as quickly…here's what we've been up to.

We spent Labor Day weekend with good friends at Table Rock Lake. The weather was sunny and beautiful, and our days were spent laughing and boating with our friends. The boys wake boarded quite a bit in the morning, and we would hang out in the sunshine in the afternoon. One evening we went into Branson for a mexican food at Branson Landing and shared many stories over many rounds of margaritas. On Sunday we went to the famous 'Pizza Hut on the lake' - let me tell you, Pizza Hut has never tasted so good.

Fun at Branson Landing.  A nice little break from the lake. 

This past weekend was the annual Derby BBQ Festival.  Mike and I have always been out of town on this weekend, but this year we finally made it. We were happy we did, too, because we ate very well. Our friend's team competed in it and we were treated to more than the samples. Mike and I ate our fill of brisket, chicken, and ribs this weekend. I think I waddled out of High Park still licking my fingers. Our friend's team placed 3rd overall. Their next stop is the American Royal, so KC friends, stop by 'Chip on Our Shoulder' for some great (Wichita) BBQ!

Saturday night was Zoobilee which is always a blast - especially when spent with good friends like all of these people. It's a always a fun evening of great food and drink, and a wonderful way to support the amazing Sedgwick County Zoo.

This past weekend I also packed away the bright colored pillows and seashells, and pulled out all my fall decor and planted mums. Mike said I looked deliriously happy doing it. I do love fall! I'm excited to spend more nights with Carlos, our beloved chiminea. 

Happy September everyone! Have a great week.
