travels // business in omaha.

during my radio silence last week, I was in omaha, nebraska. for four days of work training.

it just so happened, I arrived in town a mere thirty minutes before the tornado sirens went off. the city took shelter. and I took to the bar. [I get extreme weather anxiety. and I sure as heck was not staying in my high in the sky hotel room]. who else thinks I should be able to expense my sunday night, braving the tornado cocktails? I do. well, that’s how the trip started.

[*editor’s note: a tornado was spotted west of omaha. we just experienced 80 mph winds + thunderstorms].

days were spent in a marriott conference room. and nights were for discovering omaha.

from hotel room wine glass improvising, to the joy of changing out of my work clothes & into jeans, to delicious dinners, and a trip to the zoo. all captured by my phone.

I am happy to be home and back to my so-called routine. just as things are progressively getting crazier around these parts. it seems surreal to say we are in ‘wedding planning crunch time,’ with just over 4 months to go. summer is right around the corner. we have trips + celebrations on the books. I’m just excited and a little how the heck am I going to get everything done?.

happy monday.

happy friday.

I hope everyone had a grrreat week. the presidential election has come & gone. we happened to escaped any snow. I discovered [J] can mix a mean cocktail, which I featured on the blog. and then last night, while out, I drunkenly happily had the bartender create us a {peach + apple cosmotini}. it was a good week, you could say.

the week in photos ..

  1. nothing better than a breakfast of fresh fruit. [thanks to iowa girl eats, I purchased & seeded my very own pomegranate. they’re an intimidating fruit].
  2. you know how I love samples – green mountain coffee sent me four kcups to try! [can’t wait to try the wild mountain blueberry].
  3. it may be too cold for iced coffee. or maybe not!
  4. on the night of the presidential election, [J] made me a scrumptious salad & my FIRST peach + apple cosmotini.
  5. the world’s best breakfast [or anytime meal]. yummm!
  6. business meeting over coffee. [hopefully I’ll have some exciting news to announce soon!].
  7. I’m the proud owner of two copper mugs. bring on the moscow mules.

have an amazing weekend all.
