flavor on tap at chef^2

We had another great weekend here in Omaha! It was half glorious spring and half miserable winter. Ah well, that’s Nebraska, right?! My weekend kicked off on Thursday night with a girls’ night with friends at Midtown Crossing! I LOVE this area of Omaha and can’t believe how much it has changed since college! Am [...]

life is funny

Life has a funny way of working out. I was talking to my sister recently about the incredible shifts I’ve had with breastfeeding. One of my biggest concerns while pregnant was being able to breastfeed Eleanor until 1 year. I wanted everybody in my life to be on board – my husband, my family, and [...]

hooray for hair (and headbands)

While pregnant, I read every blog imaginable listing all of the “things they don’t tell you about…” pregnancy, childbirth, having a newborn, and so on. Hours upon hours of reading could not have prepared me for losing my hair postpartum! So any of you soon (or someday) to be mamas, I don’t expect you to [...]

totally rad weekend

This weekend was everything a weekend should be – a mix of relaxation, house projects, good food, sweet friends, and a family 5k! Friday started with dinner with some girlfriends at Mark’s in Dundee. I’ve never been there before and LOVED the Carnitas Tacos I ordered! We hit up eCreamery for dessert and I was [...]

races recently

On my quest to do at least one 5k race each month of 2014, I found myself with two great races in March – the Blarney Stone and the Diva Dash. First up was the Blarney Stone 5k which naturally was held on St. Patrick’s Day. It was coordinated by the BRIN Running Series which [...]

eleanor: 9 months

I’m very late with this post, but here we go anyways :) 9 months already! I’ve had many mamas tell me that 9 months is their favorite, and so far I’d have to agree. Eleanor is learning and growing by leaps and bounds! We are still on the MSPI diet and everything seems to be [...]

Ladies’ Night Out!

With a crazy schedule recently, I’m so excited to have a “girls’ night” on the calendar! We all need some time to unwind once in awhile, plus I’m always looking for ways to meet more friends in the Omaha area! Midtown Crossing is hosting a series of Ladies’ Night Out events that you do NOT [...]

i’m back!

Hello and happy Monday! As you may have realized, it has been a loooooooong time since I posted here on Makingmine. Life has been crazy and unfortunately the blog world hasn’t made the cut on my lengthy “to do” lists. I’ve genuinely missed writing posts, reading your comments and catching up with some of my [...]

on the move!

It was a BIG weekend at our house: Eleanor is crawling! Every time we put her on the floor to play, she got closer and closer until finally on Sunday afternoon she crawled across the living room floor! She still prefers to move around backwards and side-to-side, but she’s definitely getting more sophisticated in her [...]

water baby

Hello and happy Tuesday! I’m finally getting around to updating you on Jeff’s birthday celebration from earlier this month. The guy is pretty much impossible to shop for, so Eleanor and I hatched a scheme to plan a fun evening instead of a traditional gift. Jeff loves nothing more than spending a day at the [...]

our experience with MSPI

**I am not a medical professional, and I’m not offering any medical advice or diagnosis. This post is strictly to share our personal experience with MSPI. The past few weeks have been some of the most stressful Jeff and I have faced as parents. Having a sick child is all-consuming and terrifying. While Eleanor was [...]
