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

Something to know about me: I really want to be super crafty and domesticated. Being raised by a single Dad less importance was given to things looking pretty and way more significance was placed on the functionality of said things. While this was amazing in instilling confidence in myself to be exactly who I am I’ve always wanted to be a little more put together. I want to have that house (and admittedly that life) people

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

Hello from Nashville! Today has been a whirlwind of a day and I am going to fall fast asleep as soon as my head hits the pillow. Before that happens though, I want to share a recipe that was a big hit at

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

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

Happy Halloween! This year Josh and I weren’t sure what we were going to be until only a few days before our friends’ party.
Any guesses what we were? I sure hope so because I’m wearing this again to work today for a Halloween costume contest! haha I’m competitive and want to win! (Edited to add: My Ariel wig is MIA so I’m going as a runaway bride instead!)
We were Ariel

This past Sunday Josh and I woke up bright and early, got into costume and headed to Werner Park.
We were running The Great Pumpkin Run 5k! I’ve never done a costume run before so I was really looking forward to this. I went as a Minnie Mouse and Josh went as a pirate. I’m pretty proud of how they turned out considering we decided the night before that we should probably put costumes
