An Excellent Weekend

When your friend who you share a friendship tattoo with comes back to Omaha, you do it up good.

Lady Myna Bird

There are some nights when it's truly wonderful to be alive in Omaha and this was one of those nights.

I had kept hearing the scuttlebutt about High Up and boy, did they live up to the rep. I can't wait to see this band play in the future.




 


The dearest Mynabirds. Laura is truly a beautiful soul and singer/songwriter. Lots of dancing happened during her set, which you'll never hear me complaining about

Burger Quest: Part V

Peanut butter bacon burgers with Havarti and a side of Mexican street corn. I burnt the shit out of the buns, but still good my friends, still good.

As a patch-fanatic, this custom chain-stitched dog patch is probably my current favorite piece on my jacket. Finding the enamel pin that represents where Bebop name comes from (not this) was a pleasant surprise as well.

FLW FAN

Over Labor Day weekend, I went up to Minneapolis to visit my brother and brother-in-law. On the trip back, I made a stop I've been meaning to make for some time at Stockman House. Sadly, I didn't really want to take the time to go on the tour - to go inside, you have to sign up for a tour and tours last typically ONE HOUR - so instead we stalked around outside and hit the road again. 

When we were in the parking lot, we saw a vanity plate that read, FLW FAN. I asked my traveling companion what the heck it meant, and she immediately knew - Frank Lloyd Wright Fan. Lord, do I love a good vanity plate.

In Rapture ((Week of Sept. 14))

  • So remember this recent post I wrote? This pretty much sums up all of my thoughts. It's interesting to me how many of my male friends I considered allies, until they are the ones asking me if I really am gaining anything out of the experience, or if I just feel like I'm in an echo-chamber
  • Speedy Ortiz Rules, and this is why.
  • <3 this article from last week on 5 Omaha women who were trailblazers in jobs traditionally held by men. Sisters be doing it for themselves!
  • You guys, Pottery Barn is kind of killing it with their Halloween decorations. I want them all!

Flamingo Territory

One of my friends lives next door to some neighbors who really get into decorating their yard per the season. When I asked her when this happened, she replied, "I don't know, the boxes just kept showing up and then, they were there".

Home, Lately

You're probably sick of hearing about my new house, but #sorrynotsorry because it's finally coming together (but there are still a fucking thousand more things to do).

"Dude, You Should Totally Pull a Suicide with these Sno Cone Toppings"

We always have fun at Dundee Day, but these were the only pictures I snapped this year. I was apparently real impressed by all these sno-cone toppings.

Burger Quest: Part IV

Not a burger I made, but sometimes you need to do some research to be inspired. And the Big Frita at Nite Owl is pretty fresh 2 def y'all ---

  • Yep, this lady rules so hard! So glad we can say she's part of our NE crew. 

  • Speaking of local ladies who rule hard, check out this one too! Gah, both of these songs have been stuck in my head all week

  • Can you tell I'm going a little ceramic crazy right now? Marinski Heartmades are covet worthy as well!
