This week's "I'll Have What She's Having" is something we both actually get to have this weekend... Kansas City! Katie, Henry and Nora are coming to visit Dac and I and experience KC for the first time. It's Nora's first flight - this is big time! Here are a few of the things we hope to do in the quick couple of days we have together:

This was one of my favorite weekends in KC last year, so it's perfect timing for visitors! Local and national artists set up shop in my favorite shopping area, the Country Club Plaza. So not only will Katie get to check out Hall's (an awesome department store owned by Hallmark) and all of the other stores we love, we also get to check out some cool art and food stands from awesome restaurants around the city.

Alright, we probably won't do this one. Nora wouldn't find an art museum very exciting I'm guessing. But we can at least take a pic by the giant shuttlecock! The Nelson is a pretty outstanding museum, and we're lucky to have it here as something awesome and free to do! There is a great new contemporary wing too called the Kemper.

Duh. This is the best bbq in KC, and Henry is really only interested in a barbeque tour so we have to do this. The Z-man is where it's at. And their fries are legit too. The original location is inside a gas station. Super fancy. Anthony Bourdain named it one of the top 10 places in the world to eat before you die.

This is my new favorite brunch place. Banana-nutella french toast is all you need to know. There are a million other restaurants I want to take them to, like Spin Pizza, Beer Kitchen, Port Fonda, BRGR and Gram&Dunn, but there are only so many meals in two days, so we shall see.

5. Little Freshie and/or Glace

This sweet little shop with delicious snow cones, italian sodas and sweet treats like macarons used to be a food truck in the Crossroads called Fresher than Fresh Snowcones. 

We also of course need to go by the City Market, the awesome farmer's market in our neighborhood. And we get to take them on a tour of our new house too! Could not be more excited for the K, H, N weekend in KC. Here's to many more (I'm going to convince them to move here).
