This past weekend:
I had an amazing time at Molly’s bridal shower. She’s the one in the gorgeous dress. It was so fun to get to celebrate her, and to get to hang out with some really awesome girls. We’re celebrating Mardi Gras together tomorrow and I can’t wait!
Josh and I had a fun date night. I love that we have similar schedules and get to see each other often during the

Did you know that February is National Pancake month? I feel like every other day is National Something Month but I love pancakes so I am more than happy to celebrate! After a glorious week of spring-like temperatures Omaha has been plunged back into winter with snow and cold weather. When it’s cold and dreary out, I crave comfort carbs like no other. So when I got home from work I announced to Josh

I can’t believe it’s already Friday again! Time is flying. It’s time for another Five Facts Friday!
1. I am itching to get back into a workout routine so badly! The only workout I’ve done in the last few weeks was the 5k last weekend. It was so brutal I ended up taking more time off from exercise than I anticipated. Aside from having the husky voice of a man, dealing with left ear pain,

Something I’ve realized since moving to Omaha is how many amazing restaurants there are. This city loves its food. In the last seven months since we moved here Josh and I have been slowly but surely tasting our way through the city. When I heard that Omaha Culinary Tours had started offering food tours around Omaha I knew they picked the perfect city. To be honest, I was shocked we didn’t already have a food tour

Hey everyone! It’s been a long time since my last post! Long story short: I’ve been sick. I still haven’t kicked my upper respiratory infection, but I am a million times better than I was last week. I have so much to fill you guys in on: a Justin Timberlake concert, a chocolate tour, and our Valentine’s Day celebrations. But today I want to talk about a race. After two weeks of no real movement

I’ve been wanting to try The Grey Plume restaurant in Midtown Crossing for a while now. Rated one of the greenest restaurants in the world, and one of the best restaurants in Omaha, this place is always packed. When I headed to the gym on Tuesday to find my 5:30pm cycle class full, Josh and I decided to get a quick dinner before the next 6:30pm cycle class.
We sat at the bar which

Happy Monday! I hope you guys had a great weekend. What did you think of the Super Bowl? It was my first time really sitting down to watch a Super Bowl game and I was bummed at the lack of game. I’m happy for the Seahawks but wish it would have been a little more interesting. The commercials were awesome and Bruno Mars rocked the half time show. Those are the two things that really

This is a sponsored post written by me on behalf of the Pistachio Health Institute.
I have been on a huge nut kick lately. They taste delicious and are a great source of nutrients. A recent, large-scale Harvard study just titled their findings, “Nut consumption reduces risk of death.” I don’t know about you, but that sounds like a pretty huge benefit of eating nuts to me! ;p
I’ve loved pistachios since I

It’s almost Super Bowl time! I’m the first to admit, I watch it for the half time performance and the commercials. This year I guess I have a little bit of a stake since the Broncos are yelling, “Omaha!” every game. But really, give me some good food and a drink and I’ll be happy for whoever wins.
Speaking of good food I have an awesome Superbowl recipe to share with you guys today.

I got my workout on:
Barre on Saturday.
and Zumba on Sunday!
I went on a beer tour:
Josh and I got a Living Social deal for a beer tour at Infusion Brewing Company. I’m not a beer fan (unless it’s a cider or a sour), but I still had a lot of fun learning about how craft beer is brewed. Josh had an absolute blast. After we celebrated with a beer
