This past weekend my best friend, Amber, was in a fitness compitition in Kansas City. She has been working SUPER hard the past 15 weeks working out and eating next to nothing. Needless to say, she looked amazing and placed 5th. So proud of her.
David and I drove up Saturday morning with her hubby Josh. We stayed in downtown KC at the Marriott. We spent most of the night at the show. I would love to show you pics of Amber in it and how good she looked, but she would kill me! She doesn't want any photos on the internet. If I looked that good ya'll would get SICK of seeing pics of me...haha!
Here we are before Ambers show...striking on of the poses she had to do on stage:
I almost forgot to mention that when you win this show you get a REAL sword...I am serious....I huge real sword. We took tons of pics with it. We were putting them all over facebook. I'm sure people were wondering what in the world we were doing with this thing!
After the show we went and ate at Gordon Biersch and then went to the Power and Light District. If you are ever in KC, this place is a must! Lots of places to eat and drink and everyone hangs out and dances under this big pavilion.
Since Amber had been eating chicken and fish for months...the next day it was time to cheat. We went to eat at a restaurant featured on Diners, Drive Ins, and Dives. It was called "mamas 39th Street Cafe". They are known for the breakfast. We all ordered a ton and shared. I'm not joking when I say we ate french toast, omelettes, hash browns, corned beef hash, grits, cinnamon rolls, biscuits and gravy...that MAY be it...I'm probably missing something....it was amazing...a must eat kinda place! YUM!
