Oh, the places I’ve been..

For some reason, I have always prided myself on the fact that I can tell you ANYTHING about the great city of Kansas City (and really.. neighboring cities).. I am not kidding – where to eat, where to shop, where to stay, where to happy hour, where to poop.. well.. maybe not that one.  But still. I am a vast resource of pretty useless knowledge.. and I kind of love it. It’s one of those quirks that I am pretty sure The Hubs loves and hates about me all at the same time. The look on his face when people talk about a restaurant that, ” I JUST LOVE,” especially if he’s never been there.. always kind of amuses me. I’d like to think he’s in awe of my useless information, but I think more times than not.. it kind of annoys him… especially when I can’t tell him important dates or amounts of checks..

Just one of those things that keeps our marriage so spicy!

I’d really like to pull my resources together, and do something with my knowledge… and it doesn’t stop at the Kansas City metro area (although that’s what I know best and love the mostest) .. Any place I’ve been and love (and hate), I have made a mental note – and can tell someone, no, WANT to tell you about my experiences. I’m not sure where to start, or how to get started. Do I start a blog, write some articles, start a tour company (boo.)? I’m just not sure. This currently haunts my dreams at night, a desire to be more creative in my day and do something that I love, not just like, or am fine with. Something that fulfills a need and desire that is not currently being met. I am creative person, I design, I write (or try to write), I take pictures, I cook. I love doing things with the Captain that will spark excitement and creativity within him.

Is it fear, again, that is holding me back? I am just not sure.

Don’t forget that this week is KC Restaurant week! This is such a great way to try out restaurants you have always wanted to try, or go back and visit a favorite. $15 lunches and $30 dinners – most are 2, 3 or 4 course meals – and samples the restaurants best dishes. This week, I’d like to try just a couple, I think I did something like 4 lunches and 2 dinners last year – which got pretty pricey!

Do you have funny quirks that you love about yourself? Favorite restaurants or any you want to try? Let us know!
