Friday night: We spent some time visiting Pops who is currently in a nursing home trying to regain some strength after an infection left him weak and unable to return to his own home once he was discharged from the hospital. (I'm glad to say that he is recovering quite well, and I think he will be back home in no time!)

Later that evening (way later!), Andrew and I carpooled downtown with our neighbors for Omaha's annual Midnight Run! A young lady in our neighborhood helps to put it on, it benefits local nonprofits, and it sounded like a good time. Why not do it?! I'm proud to say that I (with Andrew's help) ran the whole 5k! I know I'm just tooting my own horn, but this is something that I have never been able to do before. During previous 5ks, I would walk parts of it, but not this time! Go me!
Saturday: We met up with my parents and attended my sister-in-law's sister's wedding. Catch all that? The wedding was very cute and the reception reminded me a lot of my brother, Chris's, wedding. It was nice to spend some time with the family, but we didn't stay long after dinner.

We went back to Omaha, cruised a couple of downtown bars before we ended up at Side Door Lounge. I love that place! The music, atmosphere, and people are pretty amazing. It's also nice that we can walk home!

Thursday: Didn't you know weekends start on Thursday now? Earlier in the week, I won free tickets to Brew Ha Ha. It's a local event to benefit Habitat for Humanity and is put on by the young professionals group. Andrew and I had a lot of fun running from table to table to get in all the eats and drinks before we left at 7. We couldn't be late for the Packers game! The game was a great way to end the night.
Friday: I felt like I was still recovering from the previous night, and I needed food. Grilling out and a movie were just what I needed! Later that evening, we met up with my coworker, Emily, at the Slowdown for the Missy Higgins concert. Good stuff! I have been really excited to see this show, and she did not disappoint. Unfortunately, I went to bed almost immediately after the show.
Saturday: We didn't waste any time getting back into a busy schedule! We took in an afternoon showing of Lawless where we were the only two people in the theatre. I think I like doing things while the Husker games are on! After the movie, we strolled through the art festival that was happening right outside the theatre. Before I knew it, it was time for the Czech Club Ladies' Night Steak Fry! Whoop!
The food was great, but I was sad to see how much thinner the crowd was this year. I challenged my bro and Andrew to both recruit two more guys before next year's event. We need younger blood up in here!
Sunday: I made Andrew breakfast of waffles and bacon. This is what happens when you players suck it up in fantasy football and you lose by four points to your husband. The rest of the day was spent watching football and getting some facetime in with Emily and friends. We were supposed to go to a play in the afternoon, but I told Andrew we should just skip it. I feel bad that we wasted the tickets, but it would have eaten up our whole afternoon... Oh well! We enjoyed ourselves anyway.
