Lives in : Kansas City

Favorite restaurant : “One of the places my family loves to grab brunch is Eggtc. We get a long table in the back room, which is perfect for enjoying a meal and catching up. The food is always fresh, and the prices are reasonable.
My favorite menu item is the raisin French toast with cheddar cheese scrambled eggs and black forest ham. I’ve been going there for five years, and I have never had a bad meal.”
Hair salon : “I’ve been going to Salon Latre’ for about 15 years after my cousin recommended it to me. It’s a quaint, intimate place where you can talk, laugh, dance and do anything else you can think of to do in a beauty shop. It is just a really friendly environment. The women who work there have been doing hair for 20 years, so they know what they’re doing.”
Library : “I like having the Plaza library so close to my home because it is clean and very well-organized. There are always a lot of families there, and I really enjoy their summer reading programs.”
Kid-friendly place : “I used to go to Kaleidoscope at Crown Center when I was a kid, and now I love taking my two boys — who are 6 and 10 — there. It’s a great, free place where kids can be creative and make artwork, like paintings or necklaces. I decorate my bedroom with all their pictures.”
