Omaha Shmomaha

Well, I did it. 
I flew all by myself. 
No husband to hold my hand and tell me where to go or the next step.
It only took me 22 years... 
I'm such a wuss when it comes to serious things like this. I take after my dad. 
But I did it! Layover in the crazy Denver airport and everything! I even got myself a taxi when I finally arrived to Omaha.

My solo travel essentials

I cried.

Because I didn't want to leave my husband, let alone Utah. 
I mean, look at that.
Stunning if you ask me.

I haven't even been here for two weeks and I can't wait to go back. Summer can't come soon enough! 
I love you, Utah.

My four dollar, five minute project

Love this kind of craft.
The quick, easy, no mess kind.

Okay... I'll admit it. I love ANY craft. Even if its something I do at work with the 1st graders. You can never get too old for some crayola crayons, safety scissors, and a purple glue stick.


I purchased two packs of these little arrow clips at Target in the dollar section. One single dollar. One of them. Less than you pay for the parking meter around here.

I got me some "kids craft magnets" at Walmart on my next visit (that's what the old toothless worker lady called them).

I scurried my little tooshie home; over the river (literally) and through the fog to my humble, frozen, and human-less house.
PS- Kelly, please come home.
PPS- that is probably not a correct usage of a semi colon. Over it.

I plugged in my glue gun to heat up while I munched on some carrots and did dishes.

It was finally time.... Creating time! Woot woot!

Simple... Glue, place, done.
And look how cute!
