omaha cornfield 10k

Hello and happy Monday! I hope you had a great weekend! As you know from yesterday's post, we enjoyed hosting my parents and my sister's family over the weekend and it was sad to see them go (although we absolutely crashed from exhaustion the minute they pulled out of the driveway haha). The weekend was [...]

4th of july ck mondavi

The 4th of July is quickly approaching which for many of us means friends, family, fireworks, and FOOD! Our family traditionally heads to Jeff's family's cabin on the lake to enjoy the water, get some sun, and grill out with plenty of food and drinks. It's potluck style, and after years of getting together for [...]

omaha college world series

Hello and HAPPY Monday! Our family had a wonderful weekend and soaked up some of Omaha's best. We're in the middle of home renovations (ugh), so we had to clear out for the entire day on Saturday while the crew painted. I'll be SO glad when I can clean up all of the dust and [...]

Hi there! My sweet nieces are still visiting from Texas, so I've been playing auntie this week. Thanks for all of the wonderful birthday wishes for Eleanor - she had a fantastic 1st birthday, and I can't wait to share more about her party next week! But first, I want to tell you about an [...]

eleanor: 12 months

eleanor 12 months

Eleanor turned 1 on Friday, so I suppose it's time for her 12 month update! Our little miss is truly thriving! She's highly communicative and LOVES engaging with family and friends. Her vocabulary is about the same as last month, but she does a lot of imitation. It's like having our own little parrot :) [...]

I can't believe I'm writing this post already... my baby girl is 1! The past year has flown by. We've had our ups and downs, our struggles and successes, but it has all been worth every minute! I can't even begin to describe the beauty that Eleanor has brought to our lives. She makes me [...]

Scooter's Coffee Omaha

There are 3 things I can't start my morning without - a banana, a quick scroll through my Instagram feed, and a BIG coffee! Lucky for me, I have a Scooter's Coffee right down the street! Most of my neighborhood must need the same caffeine jolt to get their day started because their drive-thru is always [...]

Hi and happy Monday! We had a busy weekend traveling across the state of Iowa to a family wedding. It was a great event made even better by getting to see my sister, her husband, and my two sweet nieces. As luck would have it, the location of the wedding festivities allowed us to see both [...]

summer grilling

It's time for round two of Three Cooks One Kitchen! Last month Erin hosted and we whipped up a delicious Cinco de Mayo menu. June was my turn to host and since sunshine and summer scream "grilling season," that's just what we did! We started with chips and guacamole (which didn't last long with Erin [...]

kansas city adventures

kansas city legoland

As I mentioned Monday, our family took a quick trip to Kansas City over the weekend. Besides running The Color Run, we enjoyed great food and hit up a few of KC's top spots. Following Saturday's 5k, we cleaned up and headed to the City Market. There were all kinds of vendors selling everything you [...]

Happy Monday friends! This weekend was a whirlwind! Our family took a quick (really quick, as in 24 hours) trip to Kansas City for a "yay it's finally summer and Joanna's done with school" vacation! I had 2 entries to The Color Run KC, so it was a good excuse to get out of Omaha! [...]
