Weekend in St. Louis

Hello family and friends!  I hope you all had a great weekend!  Joe and I just got back from a little trip to St. Louis.  On Friday evening we picked up one of Joe's friend in Columbia, MO then drove to Joe's parents' house and rested up for the busy Saturday we had planned.  Joe's plans for the weekend included a bachelor party for another friend that started with a group of them going to a St. Louis Blues hockey game, then heading over to the huge Mardi Gras celebration that was going on this past weekend.  I've never personally attended St. Louis Mardi Gras, but I've heard that it is the a close second to the party that goes on in New Orleans.  Needless to say, I think the guys all had a pretty great time.  By the time Joe's dad and I went to pick them up at 10:30, they were pretty wiped out.  It will be nice to see that group of guys again in about a month for the actual wedding of the bachelor.  

My plans for the weekend didn't include quite as much partying, but it was still my idea of a fun time :)  Joe's mom took his two sisters and me to see "A West Side Story" at the fabulous Fox Theater.  The show was awesome!  I had never even seen the movie version of this story, so I really wasn't sure what to expect.  The only thing I was sure of was that "Maria!" would be a common theme, haha.  The performance really was amazing and the theater itself was incredible.  I couldn't get a good picture of the inside of the theater, but here's a link to the website if you'd like to check it out: "The Fabulous Fox".  Thanks again to Joe's mom and sisters for entertaining me while Joe was out with the guys!

This coming week Joe and I will be heading to another hockey game.  This time it will be for the Kansas City minor league team, The Mavericks. I'll be sure to snap a couple pictures there.  Also, I've got plans to make a Mardi Gras treat to bring into work on Tuesday, so I'm sure you'll see the post up by Wednesday :)  Well, happy Mardi Gras, and I hope you all have a great week!
