It’s the second week of October and Nebraska is rocking on the weather! We took full advantage and stayed outside for the majority of the time too! Zero complaints from this girl!
Friday the hubs picked me up from work and we headed to Clarinda so he could take a tree down for the Gilmore’s. My husband co-owns and operates Walkup Tree Service here in Omaha and in the many years he and I have been together, I have never actually watched him work, so it was fascinating and equally as terrifying watching him physically climb up the tree and dangle up there. A single rope, harness, spikes on his boots and up he went.
This photo only shows him about 1/4 of the way up and I was already having a mild panic attack. Heights and I aren’t exactly good friends.
Once the tree came down the guys finished putting up a pretty sweet zipline across the property. The girls were schooling Clint on how this whole thing works.
After we watched a few people take a pass on the zipline we headed out for some good ol J’s Pizza and then finished the night at our nephew Connor’s football game. It’s been since the early 2000’s that I’ve been to a football game in Clarinda so it was pretty fun to see the cheerleaders, band and kids play as well as see some familiar faces in the crowd!
Saturday morning was lazy and absolutely delightful for me. Last Saturday was my first certification as a Trainer, and while I had an absolute blast, it was nice to have this weekend to decompress! Around 2pm we set out on the bikes with another couple. We met up with Liz for a drink in Lake Ohana, had dinner at Classic Cafe in Malvern, IA and closed out the night at the 21st Saloon back in Omaha. And, surprisingly, I kept the phone put away except for one single shot of the bikes before we headed back to Omaha. Shocking, I know!
It’s quite ok to put it away and enjoy the company of friends! 🙂
Sunday I woke up with a raging headache and a serious need for some H20. Didn’t do the trick, but a Bloody Mary sure did! 🙂 Tyree and I spent the early part of the afternoon at JunkStock, of which was my first and also last experience.
Cool stuff, fun vibe and far too overwhelming for my brain to handle. HA! Ended the afternoon having a few patio cocktails and catching up with Tyree before heading home to hang with the hubs and pups. Perfect afternoon.
Tonight was supposed to be spent in Lincoln at the Def Leopard concert, but we unfortunately, backed out. Clint has a big day at work tomorrow and I have a presentation to give to staff at 8am. Spending the rest of my evening putting finishing touches on it so I am ready to rock tomorrow!
I hope you all had a great weekend doing whatever it was you wanted with whoever it was you wanted to spend it with.
