Sara’s What’s Up Wednesdays!!
What’s Up in KC this Weekend?
February 14th – 18th, 2018
Happy Valentine’s Day!!
If you haven’t already made plans or reservations for the day of love, you should probably get on it! =) I personally like to avoid the restaurant chaos that surrounds this holiday. So, if you’ve not already booked a table, make dinner at home for your loved one! Single? Have a single’s awareness party at your place and invite all of your friends! Or, turn Valentine’s Day into what we should be doing every day, and that is letting everyone in your life know how much you love and appreciate them. I promise it’ll give you all the feel goods and put a smile on your loved ones faces.
Also in the spirit of Valentine’s Day… Have I mentioned how much I LOVE helping you, your friends, and family buy and sell homes?? =)
“FUNVILLE: What Do You Want to Be?”
This is a great one for the kiddos! What do you want to be when you grow up-a zookeeper, an astronaut, a firefighter, a school teacher, a veterinarian, a football player, a racecar driver or even the President of the United States? Kids can experience all these grown-up occupations and more, in a kid friendly environment. They can forecast the weather, do magic tricks, work in a barbershop, ride a tractor and even ride a bull. In “FUNVILLE,” the most important job is to have fun!
