Kansas City Girls Getaway

This post is sponsored by the Kansas City Convention and Visitors Association.  Our hotel room and King Tut Exhibit tickets were compensated, but travel and all other expenses were paid for on our own. This weekend I left Eleanor for the very 1st time overnight. I was LONG overdue for a girls weekend, so when Erin [...]

Murnan Creative

Hi there! No new post from me today as I'm recovering from my girls weekend in Kansas City and currently studying for the final exam required for my teaching licensure (boo). However, today is a BIG day for my husband Jeff. He has been growing his web design business (Murnan Creative) over the past few [...]

Remember that Dallas trip from last month? Well I finally got to cash in on my birthday present from Jeff! He surprised me with Lady Gaga tickets and a fun night out with my sister and her husband! It was an absolute blast with a night WAY out of the ordinary for us. I wouldn't consider [...]

iowa state fair 2014

Growing up in Iowa meant no summer was complete without a visit to the State Fair. I was a 4-H kid, so state fair was a pretty big deal :) I can't remember the last time I was able to attend, so when Jeff and I found out that the Warrior Dash coincided with the [...]

#blogOmaha turns 1

After a busy weekend, I rounded out my Sunday with a 1st birthday celebration for the Omaha Bloggers Network! It's hard to believe that it was only a year ago that a small group of bloggers assembled at Ingredient in Midtown Crossing for some blog talk, networking, and of course... food ;) Now, 1 year [...]

dog birthday

Ok, so let me just say that I am a terrible puppy mama. Ruby turned 2 waaaaaaaay back in June, we celebrated in July, and I'm finally getting around to blogging about my sweet pup in August. That's not to say that Ruby isn't a vital part of my life, but somehow time just really [...]

grilled potato planks

This edition of Three Cooks One Kitchen is a new summertime favorite of mine! The three of us are always discussing food (mostly via Facebook chat), but I had never heard of grilled potato planks until Hannah sent over the idea. We immediately knew this would be a GREAT recipe to try during our day [...]

Yesterday I posted about how Jeff and I spent our anniversary, but our celebrating didn't stop there! We had not one, but TWO date nights! On Saturday we skipped the wine and headed down to the Louis & Clark landing for the Glow Run 5k. It was a really fun event, but I didn't end up [...]
