Omaha Weekend Review

Oooo boy did we have a great, relaxing, and fun weekend! Omaha was fantastic... and the beautiful weather helped too! I didn't get to take a lot of pictures, because we didn't do very exciting stuff. Just shopping, movie, and eating. I wanted to take pictures at the restaurants, but they're so dark these days that people would think there is a lightning storm happening! :) Haha. But I did sneak some pictures off of some websites, so the credits belong to the source (Hilton & Lo Sole Mio). 

I'll start with our hotel, the lovely Hilton Omaha. This is where we stayed for our wedding night 3+ years ago on our way to Kansas! It is a great, clean, up scale hotel and we love it! It also happens to be pretty much in the driveway of the Omaha Qwest Center. :) Busy place!

Below is a picture of the "executive lounge" where we got free snacks, beverages, breakfast, and appetizers daily. One of the perks for staying on the 8th (executive) floor!

Below is a picture of the bathroom... nice and luxurious.

Ahh, and here is the beautiful king size bed! :)
My favorite!

 So, there you have our room. Now let's get to the food.

Friday night we ate at P.F. Chang's. Chinese food! The best! We shared the lettuce wraps, had some hot & sour soup, and shared the Spicy Chicken. It was delicious! After that we went to the movie theater and saw "Just Go With It". We laughed so much, it was awesome! You must see it! It is quite a "good" humor movie... nothing raunchy that I recall. 

Saturday night we waited 2 1/2 precious hours for Lo Sole Mio ... the best Italian in Omaha. We would agree, it was delicious! Take a look at what we had-

 For her:

Chicken Florentine
Baked Chicken Breast lightly breaded and
topped with a touch of Creamy White Sauce,
Spinach, Prosciutto Ham & Cheese, served
with choice of Angel Hair Pasta tossed in Olive
Oil & Garlic or Oven Roasted Potatoes. 19

For Him:

Salsiccia E Peperoni (Sausage & Peppers)
Italian Sausage and Sweet Roasted Peppers,
served with a choice of Angel Hair Pasta
tossed in Olive Oil & Garlic or Oven Roasted
Potatoes. 16
Not badly priced either... for the best!! :) This place is a MUST if you visit Omaha, and don't pull up your nose at the 2.5 hour wait either... they have the wait for a reason! And the bar is nice too. It was quite fun to sit at this bar, the place was literally shoulder to shoulder packed. 
This is my new addition to the kitchen. A wine rack and new glasses! I got it at Pier 1 shopping in Omaha. I had a gift card from Mom & Dad Bobier from my birthday... and it was just burning a hole in my wallet!! This rack and glasses are perfect!! 
We don't really have sophisticated wine tastes, but we do enjoy the sweet stuff! And it looks pretty too. We have found Moscato sparkling wines which are wonderful. (Thanks Mom & Dad Dooyema!) We also picked up a couple new flavors from Wine Styles in Sioux City. You should check out that store in the Lakeport Commons. It's very neat!
