First off.. its spring ya'll! The grass is a growing and the cows are happy!
Wrapping up a fabulous week! Ciara flew in for a mini visit... and we escaped for a few days of no-kids girl time! She was an awesome sport and spent her first two days here cooking food and serving at Earth Day Sarpy County. Then we snuck away to a hotel for three nights of fun!
We spent one day walking around the Old Market, hunting for antique treasures and vintage clothes. Day two we found a pop up shop dinner and ate some absolutely amazing food for dinner! Our hotel had an indoor pool and hot tub.. we were sure to get our time in there! (Btw... If you are looking for a quick get a way.. check out Aksarben Suites! They are in the middle of renovations.. we got an awesome suite for $63 a night! )
The threat of severe weather put our alone time to an early end... and my kids joined us at the hotel. Ciara had brought her daughter ( and Alex's bff) Whitney with her as a surprise for Alex.. so we had a room fulla kids!
Ciara flew home on Wed... and the kids and I decided to stay one more night and Andy came up and swam with the boys for the day while the girls and I went shopping.. And by shopping I mean hiding in the tornado shelter at Dillards. Anyway.. we had a relaxing night, kids swam, we went out to dinner and then headed home back to reality.
Yesterday I was invited to appear in the Omaha World Herald's radio news show "The Bottom Line". I was quite nervous but it actually ended up being pretty fun! Here is a link to the segment if you want to listen:
Thanks for reading!
I am feeling rested, rejuvenated, and ready to take on another market season!
Thankful for my dear friend who is willing to schlep herself and her kids halfway across the country to keep us all close.. and sane.. I swear that woman keeps me sane! Love you Ciara!!!
Love all of you too! ~ Laura
