Welcome to our blog. We are 4 friends who love travel, wine, trying new restaurants, and stepping out of our comfort zone. Join us as we find adventures in KC and beyond!




Last weekend, I got away with my fam to OKC. It’s the halfway point between KC and Amarillo. You may remember reading about Amarillo in Andrea’s fun recap of our recent trip.  

Bobby and I hit the road early on Friday so we could get in as much family time as possible.  

Caffeinated and ready to party! We met my parents at the tiniest burger joint called Nic’s. They only have a Facebook page, no official website, but people know about it! 

15 seats in the place with a line around the block- so it’s basically one in and one out all day. Get there early because they close at 2pm for the lunch rush!  Once you enter, you are greeted by one of the 2 guys working and they get you a drink and make sure you want the burger vs the special of the day.  Definitely get the burger!!  The burgers are everything you could want-griddle cooked, topped with cheese and grilled onions, and made to order! You can even add mushrooms, bacon (obviously-you add bacon), and jalapenos!! 

How do you even eat this thing?? With a fork!


What do you do after eating a giant burger, head to the house we rented and get in the pool of course!  My nephew had a blast playing! 


The sun went down and the kids went to bed...so what’s next?? My brother gave us poker lessons-let’s just say it’s a good thing we weren’t playing for real money!  Side note: I was being super classy and drinking wine out of this fun coffee mug!


The rest of the weekend brought more pool time (including some naps by the pool) and some Top Golf. 


Rounded out by a great family dinner at 1492 New World Latin Cuisine. The food was really good and they were so accommodating! 


Meanwhile here in KC, Maureen had a dance recital to show all of her hard work! I got to be there via FaceTime. We all crowded around my phone to watch her perform and she did not disappoint!  She did amazing!! 


Overall an amazing trip and I can’t wait to see these 2 kiddos again soon!
