The Digital Life
Since getting our iPad, we've really been living the digital life - working from coffee shops, blogging on the go and making music on the roof top. Having an office is really overated! After a har...
Little Square Microphone
My Little Square Microphone arrived this morning and it's so cute. They come in four colours, and I was tempted by pink, but the white goes with everything else so nicely. It works with the iPad a...
The Durham Museum
This morning, Tom and I went to the Durham Museum, which is just over the bridge from our loft. The museum is in the old Union Station and was absolutely amazing on the inside. I wish this was st...

After a hard day of work and the gym today, Tom and I rewarded ourselves with dinner at Old Chicago. I had a vegetarian calzone which was really nice and not as sloppy as the last one I had.
iPad Day
Our iPad arrived this morning and it's amazing! We got one with 3G so we can check-in while out and about. So far we've downloaded iMovie and Garage Band which are both amazing. You can make samp...
Couch Potatoes
Today was the day the army were opening up the dams to release more water in the Missouri, so we headed down to the river to see just how bad things were. These statues were up to their necks in w...

Benson Summerfest
Today we headed to the Benson Summerfest. Benson is a part of Omaha which feels like a small old American town with crazy local shops. There were lots of stalls and lots of fancy old cars parked u...

Captain Crunch
I was worried that I'd be getting home sick by now but thanks to Skype, we've been chatting to my parents most days. It's just like sitting across the table from each other. We can even play aroun...

The temperature was going to reach 100'F today, so we decided to be mall rats and headed to Westroads Mall. We went on the hunt for gym clothes in Dick's Sporting Goods which was huge and had a sec...
The Ugly Organ
There's a restaurant and bar near us called Upstream which brews it's own beer and has a brewery inside. I tried their raspberry beer which wasn't very sweet or as nice as Fruli.

It was the Omaha Farmer's Market this morning, so we had a look around and resist trying all the yummy looking samples. It's on every Saturday, which will be great when we start cooking. Today we ...
