    Nordstrom Sale

    One of the most wonderful times of the year is here: The Nordstrom Anniversary Sale! I can’t count the number of times I have been ready to check-out then suddenly spot another five items I need to add. While I wish I could add all the things to my cart, I realize that my bank account doesn’t always agree with my spending habits.

    Our Honeymoon

    Finally sharing some details about our honeymoon in Jamaica. We stayed for a full week at the Couples Swept Away resort in Negril, Jamaica. Our wedding was back in August but waiting until February to go on our trip gave us something to look forward to and it was really nice to get away from Omaha during the winter. We flew out of Omaha early February 3rd and after one connecting flight we landed in Jamaica around 3pm. Curtis paid for an expedited check-in so an escort was waiting for us when we landed. Instead of waiting in line to go through customs, we were able to enjoy some drinks…
