Kansas City is only a 2 1/2 hour drive away from Springfield, MO, so it’s slightly closer to us than St. Louis. My companion and I drove there on a Saturday morning and do you know where our first stop was? Whenever we visit a larger city we always have to make a Trader Joe’s run. I mean, I don’t haaave to, but how else am I going to buy mini-hedgehog cookies, Orangina, and Italian truffle cheese? Do you have any recent TJ favorites? The next stop was somewhere I’ve never been before: IKEA.
