Memorial Day Weekend 2015

image

In the 9 years I have lived in Omaha I have never really explored The Old Market.  I’ve been down there multiple times, eaten at many restaurants, drank at multiple bars, celebrated Bachelorette’s, Birthday’s and Sunday Funday’s but I have never really gotten out and walked around until Memorial Weekend.   And lucky for me I was able to explore it with my mom while she was in town with my brother.

We started with a couple drinks and appetizers while sitting on the patio.  It was a little overcast but overall the weather was gorgeous.

Next up a little walk to Cupcake Omaha!  Mom got a Red Velvet while I chose two sea salt caramels, which were simply divine.

They even sold frosting shots!  How genius for us frosting lovers!!

We continued to walk around the entire Old Market before ending up at Old Chicago for a beer while we waited for Gabe to get out of his meeting.    It was SUCH a lovely day with my mom and it was great to finally get to walk around the heart of my city. ❤

On Memorial Day Monday Clint and I were able to get out on the bikes for the day.  The weather was gorgeous and we were definitely ready to get out of the city.

.

We rode to Red Oak to drop off some paperwork to one of Clint’s former employees and then we rode back to Emerson to hang with Troy and Sara and kiddos for the afternoon.

Bubba was sure loving on Clint.  Can’t resist a sweet dog.

And I can’t resist these three beauties.   Sara has been such a good friend to me since we met in 2005.  Nothing makes me happier to see her shine as a mama.  ❤

A nice sunset ride back to the city and our Memorial weekend had come to a close.

One thing I left out of this recap is Tyree’s fitness competition that took place on Saturday, May 23rd.  I will get to that recap very soon.  Super proud of her. 🙂

Stay Tuned…

  1. I love the Old Market! So many little gems there. The Christmas Shop (if it’s still there) is one of my favourite places!
