Exploring a new city is so much fun! Eric and I loved our weekend stay in Omaha a couple weeks ago for the FamilyLife Weekend to Remember conference (read Eric’s recap here). We had never been to Omaha besides flying out of there a couple times. When we visit a new city, we love to tentatively plan our meals before we go, and this time got a lot of great recommendations on our Facebook page, so thanks!

So here we go…the best food in Omaha according to two people who have only been there once for a very short weekend!

Sorry to completely embarrass you…I couldn’t resist (big thanks to my friend Laura for the Photoshop help)!

It’s been so much fun to surprise you for the past five days. I hope your birthmonth has felt special so far. I can’t wait to run around Des Moines with you today eating BBQ and thrifting some cool stuff and buying house plants.

Gosh, we’re so old.

Welcome to 30!!!!!!!!

xo, Kelsey

Chasing God book

I’ve written about Angie Smith once before (after I saw her at Women of Faith a year and a half ago), which is how I’m assuming her PR team found our blog and contacted me to do this giveaway. She was my favorite speaker I’ve ever seen at Women of Faith.

I love Angie’s story. She’s had lots of ups and downs, from marrying the man of her dreams (lead singer of Selah), suffering a miscarriage, birthing identical twins, losing a baby a few hours after she was born, etc. She’s got four beautiful daughters here on earth and they’re such a lovely family.

I follow Angie on Twitter so I can continue to be inspired by her on a daily basis. Because I want to know not just what she would say when she gets up in front of thousands of people to speak, but what she would say/how she would react while watching the Olympics or when she gets stuck in a snowstorm on the interstate or when her flight gets delayed or when she runs into homeschooling problems. She’s real, and I love that she’s a Christian sister I can look to.

Anyway, Angie’s got lots of books out there, and her most recent is called Chasing God.

Whoa. In one week I will join Kelsey and enter my 30s. I’m not scared per se, but rather, I’ve just been thinking about what it will mean to be 30. I don’t put a lot of emphasis on milestone birthdays, and I think it kind of silly to think things will change between March 4 and March 5 when I am 29 and 30 respectively.

But, as the day approaches, I’ve just been trying to both dig back into my 20s and look forward to my 30s. To both remember and be grateful for what I’ve been given, learn from the past and dream about the next decade of my life. I’m not sure anything truly meaningful will come out of this post for you (or me), but here is a list of 10 big things that happened in my 20s and 10 things I hope to accomplish in my 30s.

Five years ago we took a class called Financial Peace University.

Three years ago we became debt-free.

One year ago we completed our 6-month emergency fund.

Last week we got to share our story on our favorite local news station. Click here to check it out.

So excited to see what the future holds!
