Hooray for Dre Day

Friday night some of us were feeling like a good ol' fashion dance party.  As we all know, dance parties are synonymous with the Power & Light District.  Get out of the way barely 21 year olds, your twerking is so passé.  We are into Retro Surf...Retro Dance...Retro Cool...obviously that equates to Shark Bar

Shark Bar is the home of the endless summer and brings the endless party.  From Nude Beach Tea's and Bikini Cooler to Shark Bar’s signature beach pail punch, you pick your libation to unwind and hit the beach.  Friday and Saturday nights the beach heats up with the greatest retro dance music this side of the North Shore. There was literally no better way to celebrate Dre Day!

The birthday girl and a few other brave souls stayed out until nearly 2 am, proving they've still got it! No members of Unfiltered Adventure were awake at 2 am. 

Party Animals!

Hey Ladies!

Hey Ladies!

Saturday offered so many options we decided to divide and conquer to maximize our adventures!  

Stephanie headed to Atchison, Kansas to check out the Amelia Erhert Festival, an air show, margaritas and live music. Oh and she put her house on the market and sold it in a matter of hours.

Kristi went on her annual family trip to Bennett Spring State Park, can you say Trout Country!?!

Leslie and Andrea tried some new dranks, had a Moscow Mule and feasted on deliciously grilled  medium rare filet mignon like a couple of Queens.

You may recall Friendship Brunch was hosted at Summit Grill earlier this year. It was so delicious Dre decided to grab 21 of her favorite friends and round out her birthday weekend with bottomless mimosas and satisfying comfort food.

Bottomless mimosas indeed.  The Summit Grill wait staff is extremely optimistic, no glass was ever half empty.

I highly recommend the Jalepeno Cheddar Grits in a Jar. Allow me to elaborate, the grits were topped with thick-cut Nueske's bacon, Fritz's sausage and soft poached eggs.  Thank you Summit Grill.

No poison injections this week, just good clean fun!

Cheers,

On this season of Botched!

Have you ever looked in a mirror and thought what the hellz happened? Well it turns out the fountain of youth is actually poison....and we put some in our bodies for your viewing pleasure. Purity Wellness Center in Overland Park, KS. was recommended to us by some current clients so we threw caution into the poisonous wind and said ahhh maybe, I don't think so, okay! The 4 of us did a group appointment (even though Andrea stayed poison free she was there to cheer us on) and brought champagne, obvi, to celebrate us being brave. What happened next was interesting...

There's nothing more natural than having a stranger look at you and point blank tell you what can be fixed. I had no idea one of my eye droope so thanks UA for not telling me! Anyway, once we all got mapped out it was time to get in the chair and receive our poison....Dysport (a competitor of Botox).

Stress balls smesh balls...this was cake.

So what did it feel like? Super small bee stings if you had to describe it.  It didn't hurt at all, it was simply a different feeling having a tiny needle poke you over and over again in your forehead (that's what she said). When all was said and done we were only there for an hour combined even with our champagne celebration! 

We were told that it takes 2 weeks before our injections take full affect but we just couldn't wait that long to show you how far we've "progressed" so here are our 1 week before and afters. No flash photography at the screen please.

We are all trying hard to werinkle up that forehead but it just isn't budging! We asked for the non-frozen look and I think we all look natural sans some lines. But what do you think? Would you try it after reading this? I can tell you all 3 of us needed different locations/amount of Dysport based on what "enhancements" we wanted. I also think the price tag was way under what any of us were expecting. I don't know about the other girls but I could see myself putting this into my 3-4 month beauty routine going forward!

Ed Sheeran & Moscow Mules...to celebrate America??

What's more American than Ed Sheeran, Moscow Mules, and tacos??  Well, pretty much anything!  BUT that is how we celebrated this 4th of July weekend (week really).

My friend Robyn came to visit.  You may remember her from this post.  This time she brought her bf Jeremy along for the fun.  We grabbed Andrea and headed to the Ed Sheeran concert.  He's crazy talented and put on a fun show!

The next day we headed out for some fun in KC.  Started at Westside Local.  This place was so cool.  They try to locally source all of their ingredients and list the various farms on the menu.  The deviled eggs were fantastic!!!  I went all in for the Teryaki Burger...ham, jalapenos, and pineapple on a burger...it was pretty amazing.

Next stop Boulevard Brewery.  You can't come to KC and not come here!  We skipped the tour and opted for the tasting room with Bobby and I rattling off fun facts while we had a few flights to try out lots of beers.  Rye on Rye on Rye was the favorite for Bobby and Billy.  I enjoyed the stout and I think the jury is still out on a fave for Robyn and Jeremy.

What better way to work off an afternoon of beer drinking?  Topgolf!  Not local to KC, but fun and not available where Robyn and Jeremy live.  Billy showed us all how it was done and even fixed my swing.  You can see a clear improvement with his coaching!  Bobby had a terrible showing...maybe too many Rye on Rye on Ryes!

Last, but not least...we finished the night at North.  Great italian food and wine!  Then it was time to head home and get ready to party on Saturday!

Ain't no party like a Daniels' pool party!  We had a blast as usual with fun in the sun, water gun fights, and jumping off the diving board.

We wrapped up the week with a fun 4th of July celebration.  I hope you all had a fantastic 4th as well!
