many of you know that a few weeks ago, my little sister moved to nebraska from california to begin her freshman year at UNL. throughout the years, i’ve grown so accustomed to living far away from everyone i’m closest with, so kevin and i are pretty much ecstatic to have hannah nearby now! we haven’t spent much time in lincoln, but with hannah here, we’re jumping on the husker bandwagon and planning to make more frequent trips in that direction. last saturday, we went down for the day to watch the nebraska football game downtown and to visit with hannah. below, a few photos and notes from our day…
we didn’t have tickets to the game, and just planned to watch at a bar somewhere downtown, but we were told there would be traffic and to leave early regardless. we left around 7:30am for the 11am game, and grabbed breakfast at a place we’ve been wanting to try out in west omaha, over easy. we usually stay on the east side for most of our eating out, but after saturday, we’ll be breakfasting way more often at over easy. the sausage breakfast sandwich, sweet potato tots, hash brown rounds, and homemade nutella pop tart were all fantastic, and they even have a drive-thru! is it saturday again yet? (we were too busy engulfing our food to take a picture, but i did get a shot of their pretty table settings and cool reclaimed wood wall!)
we were hoping to watch the game at a local brewery in lincoln, but they weren’t open early enough, so we opted for the railyard area instead, a newer area in the haymarket district with several bars and restaurants connected by an outdoor courtyard and a big-screen tv! since it was only 10:30am and clearly way too early for beer…we got a mimosa and a bloody mary instead. cheers!
hannah left the game early and joined us in the railyard just after halftime. we ordered some wings from one of the restaurants, buffalo wings + rings, and were pretty impressed. this was the only one out of about 40 pictures where all three of us were making normal faces.
after the game, we walked to the bookstore in the union so i could buy a nebraska shirt. we got distracted and had to spend some time playing on these chairs in the union that hannah had told us about. we’re easily entertained.
once we finished playing, we ran a few errands and took hannah grocery shopping, then came back to campus for awhile and hung out in her dorm room. kevin and i were hoping to pick up a growler at zipline brewery on our way out of town, but the beer we wanted (barrel aged harumeku) in it was a limited, small batch beer, so we opted for having a pint in their tap room instead.
we had a great day spending time in lincoln and of course, spending time with hannah. already can’t wait to go back!
