We’ve been training for this.

We’ve been training for this.

It’s go time.

You can sleep in January.

These are all things I’ve said to myself the past few days.  And many of you, in whatever profession you’re in, be it an accountant in the 1st quarter, a football coach in the fall, or lawn care guy all summer long, you know what I’m talking about.

This week is the start of the holiday season.  A mix of “oh man I hope I chose things you like” to “did I order enough” to “it’s freaking 2020, who the hell knows what is going to happen”!

This is what I do know. 

We have been so fortunate that our customers and friends have stuck by us during this year. I cannot thank you enough for continuing to support us and all other small businesses across this community and the country.

Here are a few of our favorite small shops we hope you’ll check out this Small Business Saturday and throughout the holiday season.

And as I always say, if you can’t financially support all the local shops you want, please know a post, a mention, a check-in and a recommendation to a friend is invaluable. I think I speak for all my friends above when I say “we appreciate you so much”!

We hope you might join us for Small Business Saturday. Teddy will be in the shop, likely begging for a belly rub.

We’ll have some SBS promotions and of course, if you feel more safe ordering online, we have curbside and shipping options too.

Again, thank you for shopping small. Thank you for supporting local. We wish you a wonderful holiday season, friends.

Ready……BREAK!

It’s simple.

Ok, who am I kidding, there were about 400 things I really wanted to happen. Let’s just say for the sake of this blog, there were three – thanks for playing along.

Top 5 Fall Cocktails - Fall 2022

September 30, 2022

Fall is here.

And like most Septembers in Nebraska, this month is acting all crazy-like. Locals will nod and smile when I share that last Tuesday, at our son’s football game it was 103 degrees. The very next day, we wore sweatshirts and had blankets for the 64-degree football game.

A whopping 40 degree shift in 24 hours. Welcome to Nebraska – it isn’t for everyone.  #iykyk

Grab your brats - Tailgating season is here!
Grab your brats - Tailgating season is here!

August 18, 2022

Did you know National Tailgating Day is coming up? It is September 3rd this year. I didn’t know either. But I like it.

I most often associated tailgating with football. And my very unsophisticated research tells me some theorize it started in the late 1800s (without actual tail-gates, of course) at intercollegiate games, and other theories claim it became popular in American culture due to the Green Bay Packers.
