Omaha Wedding Shower

This weekend, we had our first bridal shower in Omaha. I was overwhelmed with love and support by so many people that have been a part of my life from the very beginning (aka birth).  Here are some (very small) shots from the day:

I was also able to get so many other wedding related things done. It was great having my Maid of Honor and future sister-in-law/bridesmaid there to help bounce ideas off of. Sometimes not having a preference makes it more difficult! Fortunately, with their help combined with input from my mom and Rob, we were able to accomplish a number of items.

On the note of weddings/marriage, I recently read this post, “What Every Millennial Needs To Know About Marriage”. There is some good stuff in there that is helpful reminder to my peers.

November is quickly approaching and this weekend made everything that much more real. I better get moving on quite a few things!


How was your weekend?

Things are Looking Up

It has been awhile since you  have heard from me. However, I couldn’t resist adding this song on here. It popped up on my spotify and I just love it. I hope you enjoy it as well. Happy Wednesday!

I’ve got moves you’ve never seen!

If you haven’t seen this video, there is no time like right now. It is epic and I am in complete jealousy. How does one get their body to move like that? How does one learn?

I need to know immediately.

Mondays – I hate those.


Mondays. They are the dreaded day of the week that 8-5ers wish went by faster. Being out of the office since Thursday also makes it that much worse. Your email is piled up with coworkers who ignored your “I am not here today” message and asked you 4820 questions that need to be answered immediately. Hold your britches, I am getting to your “important” email.

Anywho – We went car shopping this weekend. As Rob said, “We aren’t buying anything today. We are just researching what kind of car you want.” Of course, I was like I WANT THIS CAR NOW. Needless to say, no car was purchased. Rob was right. It makes no sense to get one now. Ugh – I hate when that happens. The heart wants what it wants.

Yesterday it was so nice out that my body went into shock. I was wearing pants, and I just don’t understand what “warm” means anymore. Shortly after stepping outside I realized I was either a) going to die from sweating so much (aka die from being so dramatic) or b) get the worst sunburn (aka my skin makes me look like a ghost).

It was such a slap in the face to the potential reality of life now. Is the warm weather really here? Or is this a trick? Is winter over? I’ll believe it when we go a whole week without me needing my winter coat.

This is my life. I can’t go a whole week without feeling at a complete lost with the weather. I also have become the person who worries this much about THE WEATHER. It stresses me out! I take public transportation! Leave me alone.

Go “enjoy” your Monday – if that is even possible…

Big Plans for Saturday



All I want to do this weekend is sleep and catch up on all my crappy (and highly entertaining) TV shows. I think these two lazy bums will want to do the same as me:



Any fun plans this weekend?

Stuff on Tuesday

Happy Tuesday! 011097cac62c5abbd3eee21c390c2d7d0a44e00942

I wanted to share with you some things I’ve been lovin’ recently:

1. Last night, Rob and I attended Crossfit for the first time. We met a great group of people and are very excited about starting this new fitness adventure. I thought I did decent for the first time and can’t wait to get in the swing of things!

2. In my daily Positive Quote of the Day email, I received the following quote. Love it.

One must have the adventurous daring to accept oneselfas a bundle of
possibilities and undertake the most interesting game in the world —
making the most of one’s best.

— Harry Emerson Fosdick (1878-1969) American Protestant Minister

3. Bacon is still wonderful.

4. I got this new water bottle that is hands down one of the best waterbottles I have ever owned. And I know my water bottles.

5. 30 Things to Stop Doing to Yourself

6. These little guys.I’ve been itching to make a visit sometime soon.


7. Does anyone remember these?? I used to love these educational learning thingamabob. (That sounded a little dumb of me….)



8. Just look at her eyes. And I am allowing her to be in my wedding. Sigh.


Good news…Tomorrow is Wednesday. Phew!

Are you wearing GREEN today?

Happy St. Patrick’s Day! I hope you are sporting a little bit of green…unless you are asking to get pinched ;-)

I decided that my kelly green skirt needed to be worn today. (Sorry for the ghetto iPhone quality picture.) Strangely enough, I got a number of weird looks as I got off the train this morning. Don’t people know what being festive means?!

Although, if you are willing to take a chance, you might get lucky like this kid:

Irish Baby

The funny part is…he is actually wearing green. Should someone tell him? (P.S. I love his memes. I mean THAT FACE.)
