Week 20 - Walking to Iowa

On Sunday Dean, Kathy, and I journeyed back downtown to take a walk along the Riverfront. We walked across the newly built Bob Kerry Pedestrian Bridge that leads to a park in Council Bluffs and after walking back to Omaha we had lunch at The Old Mattress Factory. Once we returned home Kathy and Guy packed up their belongings and headed back to Lincoln. We had a wonderful time hosting them for the weekend and hope to have them over again soon. :-)

Woohoo! On Monday I finally won a prize in a sweepstakes. I won one of the daily prizes that T.Marzetti Dressings was giving away in the Backyard BBQ sweepstakes--one of 23 bocce ball sets! Too bad we already have one, but it's worth $100 so it'll be a good Craigslist item! :-) Funny thing is that I took about a week-and-a-half break from entering because I was burnt out on entering, so this is great motivation on my first day back!

On Friday and Saturday, Dean and I decided to try painting for the first time in our lives. I gotta say, we're pretty good at it! We painted our master bedroom a beautiful shade of blue. Before the walls were white and had a border--the border removal proved to be the hardest part.
