Omaha moments

Omaha moments

I hopped over to Omaha last weekend for a hot minute to visit some friends before they move to to St. Louis to be closer to me start their post-grad school lives.

It was a quick trip, but a fun one. Highlights included two homecooked brunches, a late night Revenge catchup and searching for Warren Buffett's house after indulging in eCreamery ice cream (yes, we found it). We also made fresh juice from farmer's market fruits and veggies, explored the Lauritzen Gardens and indulged in some darn good coffee. Here are my favorite moments.
