darkhopefeatured-1024x680

Since Eleanor and I have developed a bit more of a routine this summer, I’ve started actually reading for ENJOYMENT again. As a result, I’ve spent my fair share of summer evenings out in our backyard with a good book. I made it through a huge backlog of books I’ve been given for Christmas and… Continue Reading →

Happy Monday! I hope you are all enjoying this LONG weekend and taking some time for rest and relaxation. Weekends don't mean much for a stay at home mom, but Eleanor and I sure enjoy our extra time with daddy :) Our "weekend" will continue today with one final trip out to the lake. Everything will…

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…

On Saturday Jeff and I dropped Eleanor at my parents' house and trekked to Earlham, Iowa for the Warrior Dash. It was not your typical Midwest August day with temps in the 70's and a fine mist - in other words it was PERFECT for a 3.3 mile mud run with 12 obstacles! We arrived…

#blogOmaha turns 1

omaha bloggers network

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…
