Kansas City Holiday Mart

I LOVE the Holiday Mart. To me it is the quintessential kick-off to the holiday season. Last weekend me and the girls headed to KC to get our shop on at the annual Holiday Mart. For those of you not from KC, the Holiday Mart is hosted by the Junior Leauge of Kansas City, and consists of many many booths of crafts, candies, food, knick-knacks, just about anything you can imagine. And the best part is, most of it is Holiday related. Consider me a holiday junkie, and the holiday mart my crack.

We arrived aound 11:30ish, browsed, had a glass of wine, sampled TONS of amazing dips/soups/candies/etc. We were thoroughly exhausted by 3:30 when we left. Honest to goodness I could spend all 4 days that they're open in there, but with 2 kiddos you make do with what time you're allowed.

The Holiday Mart is something I look forward to every year, and I've already got my calendar marked for next October!! Hopefully next year I'll get to spend a little more, because this year my dear old hubs has me on a strict budget :)

Seeing this just makes me happy!

Gracen clearly not realizing yet the awesomeness that she's in for

Don't Christmas decorations just bring a smile to your face?!?!
