I travel the world and am truly amazed with the sights, cultures, and people but in my eyes there is no place like home.

Aged To Perfection

I want a barn – a vintage red barn to be specific, or maybe a light pink one……I want to host dinner parties and someday a wedding in said barn.
For some reason I always forget I kinda have a barn already. It’s red. It could be used to host dinner parties or a wedding. Just needs a little TLC.
Although several commented on Facebook that is quite perfect just the way it is with it’s weathered boards.
I even have a cool vintage wagon for photo opportunities.

Sunset Cruising

We just got a Polaris Ranger and I’m addicted. So fun zipping around town or out at the land on it
It’s also great for sunset cruising. Tooling around the back country roads right at that golden hour and watching the sun dip down below the trees. A perfect relaxing end to the day.

Omaha Color Run

Last Saturday was the Color Run in Omaha. I wasn’t sure what to expect and it was a crazy hot (in the 90’s day).
I am so glad I went. It was a BLAST!!! So much fun and a different change of pace from normal races (you weren’t even timed!).
There were different color stations along the route (every kilometer I think) where they would blast you with powdered color.
It was fun anticipating the next station and blast of cheerful color.
With a grand finale at the end.
Great great event and a fun time with friends. Bits of my skin are still dyed by the color though….

Finding my Motivation

Sadly I have been slacking big time in the fitness and healthy eating department. I just lost all mojo and in return gained a few lbs, not good my friends. For the past few weeks I am trying to get that inner exercise diva back to front and center. My runs haven’t been long nor have my workouts been anything to impress the gym rats but at least I am back to an almost daily exercise program. Thanks to my overflowing garden my veggie intake has outweighed my chocolate/carb intake. Baby steps right?? We have an awesome old track the city maintains in my neighborhood and I love going there for morning or late evening short easy runs, if I'm feeling extra energetic I even through in a few stair workouts for old times sake.

Vine Fresh Tomatoes & Cucumbers

Make delicious salads. A lil basil, a pinch of salt & pepper, a bit of mayo (although sure there are much healthier options I should explore) and a scrumptious healthy salad is all yours.
Loving garden season and fresh veggies and herbs!

Community Garden Updates

I am giddy every time I stop at my garden as I swear things grow tenfold overnight. So fun to see flowers blooming and ready to be cut and enjoyed around my home.
I absolutely love plucking tomatoes from the vines, or pulling up beets from the ground!
Can’t wait till the day I stop by and see cucumbers hanging from the vines!!

Tonka’s Destiny

Top off, windows down, amidst a field of tall grass, and wide open spaces ready for any adventure. I think this should be used for a Jeep ad :)
