Every weekend I plan to sit around and do nothing but watch Bravo shows in my pjs. I love the simple things in life. ;p And without fail, every weekend I find myself with a jam packed schedule. As relaxing as following along with the latest Housewife drama can be, I feel so grateful for busy weekends. Busy weekends mean fun time with friends, good food, date nights and explorations around Omaha. And that is

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

Happy Friday! I’m on my way home from Nashville now and am writing this post on my phone. Hopefully it works! This trip was such a fun one. My plane is about to board so I’ll let these pictures speak for themselves.
Question of the Day: Have you been to Nashville?

Now that we’re married, a lot of people would say our dating anniversary doesn’t really matter. But our first date was also the first time we ever met. (Online dating for the win!) So what may seem like a small event to some people now that we’re husband and wife is still pretty huge to me. My favorite person in the world has been in my life for three years now. I’ve had three years

I didn’t expect to take a week long hiatus from blogging but I’m very glad I did. Josh’s parents came to visit the Friday before last and left yesterday. It was so great getting to see them. We’ve missed them a lot. We traveled all over Omaha to show them our favorite places and discovered some new ones along the way.
Our first point of business when they got here was to go to

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

Last night Josh and I got to attend a pretty cool event.
We got to meet Robin Sorensen, the co-founder of Firehouse Subs. I had not heard of Firehouse subs before this event and thought they were local to Omaha. During his talk I found out Firehouse Subs opened in Jacksonville, FL (I used to live there!) and has over 660 locations. I felt a little silly. ;p They reached out to bloggers in

It’s Friday! How the heck did that happen? Josh and I went to see Big Bad Voodoo Daddy last night at the Holland Performing Arts Center. Before the show Josh and I met up with Hannah at Blatt.
We’ve wanted to go here for the longest time. We got happy hour drinks and mini pretzel bites as an appetizer. I then got a veggie burger for dinner with a side of cucumber and carrots.

I feel like I blinked and this weekend was over. It was such a wonderful weekend that flew by way too quickly. It started out the way weekends usually do :
I picked up groceries.
I got gas. And did a little happy dance when I saw how cheap it was. When I interned for Enterprise and was long distance from Josh I drove all the time. Those miles added up into big

I love the fall season. The colors, the flavors, and the crispness in the air. We’ve been having some perfect weather lately and have been trying to make the most of it. Our days have been full in the best possible way.
Like at the Art Sar Ben festival in Aksarben this past weekend. We spent the morning checking out the local vendors and playing under the giant bubble machine. It reminded me a
