My husband plans the most wonderful Valentine's Dates for us, and this year was no exception. He planned a weekend away for us in Kansas City. We started off with a trip to browse at Barnes & Noble (one of our favorite things)
Then, after browsing and buying a few books and some Godiva Chocolate for later, we headed into the city.
We checked into our hotel (The President's Hotel built in 1926, and recently restored – it's truly a beautiful, historic place)
We dressed for dinner, and headed to Le Fou Frog, a French restaurant we'd been wanting to try!
We are foodies to the core (French food being among our favorites) and Le Fou Frog did not disappoint! Among the highlights was our first time trying Escargot
I never thought I'd say this, but seriously – snails are delicious!
Even better than the food though, was this man's company
Oh, this man – he makes me laugh and feel all giddy inside, even after all these years
The weather was so nice, we got to eat outside (which is truly a treat for Valentine's Day in Missouri ;)!
Oh, and we also got to try Foie Gras
Not my favorite, but my husband loved it with his steak! We were stuffed and running late for the show, so we got dessert to go and headed to the Kansas City Music Hall to see The Phantom of the Opera.
We love going to plays and musicals, and have been to several, but this is our very first "Playbill" – how cool is that?
The show was amazing,
and my husband even gave me his jacket to keep me warm
Then, we walked back to the hotel for dessert
(that we ate with coffee stirrers from the room-because we didn't have any silverware ;)! And, a surprise
bottle of champagne waiting for us in the room!
To my incredible husband,
to my best friend and always my one and only Valentine – from the bottom of my heart – THANK YOU!
Nobody makes me smile
