I can’t believe Thanksgiving is over! The holidays sure do fly. I hope your Thanksgiving was a special one.
I celebrated mine with my favorite guy and our friends Molly, Brian, and their family. Molly was so kind to invite us over to her parents house for Thanksgiving. We aren’t traveling home for the holidays this year and weren’t sure what we were going to do. Her family was so warm and welcoming. They

Growing up, my family would always get together for the holidays and celebrate with big meals. I’d drink apple cider and try and steal some pumpkin pie while getting shooed from the kitchen and told to go help set the table. I look back on all those memories fondly, even the year my dad tried to cook the turkey, but forgot to defrost it so we ended up ordering Chinese for Thanksgiving dinner. Now that

This past weekend Joanna and Jeff invited Josh and me to our first Friendsgiving! Being new to town, it means so much to have friends that include us in their holiday traditions. I’ve always wanted to go to a Friendsgiving, so I was really looking forward to this. It was a potluck so Josh and I brought squash casserole, creme brulee potatoes, and pumpkin chocolate chip mookies.
My pictures are random and sporadic throughout

This past weekend Josh and I attended our first Friendsgiving! Joanna and her husband invited us to celebrate the season with friends, and Josh and I knew we wanted to bring a special dish to mark the special occasion. We wanted it to be healthy, tasty, relatively simple to make, and not make too much of a mess. Josh and I

So much has been going on lately, I thought it would be fun to do a little catch-up of some things I’ve been meaning to share with you guys.
We’re getting serious about decorating! I’m so excited with how our apartment is coming together! I need to get flowers to fill the mason jars with on the bottom. I picked them up at Junkstock and love them.
We bought a new loveseat! It

This weekend was such a great one. Like always, it flew by. Here’s some of the highlights.
I don’t know how I forgot this when I first posted but Hannah and I went to see Danielle Bradbery perform at Midtown Crossing. I rooted for her on The Voice so it was so exciting to see her on stage. She was amazing and so sweet. I kept hoping Blake Shelton would pop out on stage

Time has been flying since Josh and I moved to Omaha. We have been doing so much and having so much fun. I feel so lucky that this amazing city is already starting to feel like home. Because of how busy we’ve been acclimating to a new city I feel like I haven’t been posting as much about our outings. I thought I’d do a fun picture catch up post today.

Happy Labor Day! I hope you are having an amazing long weekend with loved ones.
This past Friday Josh and I did something we always wanted to do:
we took a cooking class! When Whole Foods invited me to attend their Pretzel Making at Home Cooking Class I knew this would be a perfect class for me and Josh. The class was taught by Andrea Slonecker, author of Pretzel Making at Home.

Josh has been spoiling me with delicious home cooked meals lately. His latest creation was an amazing quinoa and black bean sautee he cooked while I did Pilates this past weekend. It was so good I had to share the recipe with you guys.
Josh went crazy using a lot of our bulk bin goods from Whole Foods for this recipe. I call him my mad chef in that he just takes

Everything about this weekend was truly amazing. I loved having Josh home. We celebrated with a date night at Midtown Crossing.
Brix has fabulous food, fabulous drinks, and a fabulous view. We made sure to get there early to make it for their happy hour specials.
As we were walking around we heard a man playing a cello nearby. It was so beautiful. I grew up playing the violin and always wished I
