***Remember that I generally just price match at Walmart as much as I can rather than go to all the stores separately! I LOVE being able to do that. You can also pricematch at Target, but I find it easier to pricematch at Walmart.


Yes, you CAN donate to the Smith family no matter where you live!

I have been overwhelmed by the love and support people have shown for the Smith Family! Many of you who are NOT in Omaha have asked if there is a way to donate directly to the family of Dr Adam Smith. The answer is YES! There is a fund set up for the family at the Greater Omaha Credit Union, and donations may be mailed to the Greater Omaha Credit Union, Creighton University Medical Center, 601 N. 30 St., Omaha, NE 68131.

PLEASE come to tomorrow night's benefit for the family of Dr Adam Smith!

Below is a repost about tomorrow night's Benefit Dinner for the family of Dr Adam Smith who was killed by a drunk driver. If you are in Omaha, please come-you can still send us ticket requests and we will have the tickets for you at the door. Just email your ticket requests to with the subject line "tickets" Each ticket is $15 which is a little pricey, but remember, it is a benefit dinner and silent auction for a wonderful family going through a tough time!!

Also, I want to mention that we have an AMAZING list of donated items for the silent auction that includes a Colorado getaway at a very nice resort, season tickets to all Creighton athletics, lots of jewelry, spa, restaurant, and theatre items. This list just hits the tip of the iceberg! There is SOOOO much to bid on, and the items vary in price so even if you are low on money like me, there is likely something great you can bid on, and all those items were donated so the money made will go right to my good friend, Melissa Smith (widow of Dr Adam Smith) and her boys!

Feel free to email me with any questions:

If you are in Omaha, please read the following letter and consider attending this event sponsored by HOAA (which is a group to support families of residents. I am in the presidency):

Re: Benefit Dinner for the Family of Dr. Adam Smith

August 18, 2010

Our Omaha Community,

Last week, the medical community lost a terrific doctor and wonderful man when fourth year Creighton radiology resident, Dr. Adam Smith, was struck by a drunk driver.

The House Officer’s Association Alliance (HOAA), which exists to provide support to the spouses and partners of residents and fellows at the University of Nebraska Medical Center, would like to do all that we can to help Adam’s wife Melissa and her three sons during this difficult time. We are asking the community to join us in this endeavor.

On Thursday, August 26, HOAA will be sponsoring a benefit dinner and silent auction with all proceeds going to the Adam Smith Memorial Fund. Dinner will be served anytime from 5 - 8 p.m., in the Lower Storz Pavillion on the ground floor of Clarkson hospital. Please make plans to join us if you can.

Tickets are available for a suggested donation of $15 each and can be reserved by
e-mailing us at Please put “tickets” in the subject line, and make sure to include your name and phone number in your message. Donations are also being accepted for the silent auction. Please contact Devon Toomey, our volunteer chair, at 402-932-8959 or for more information.

Thank you and we hope to see you there!

Stephanie Kumor, President
House Officers Association Alliance

CVS is finally in Omaha!!

I realize this post is about a week late, but I just noticed I never posted this information! So, if you have not heard, CVS is FINALLY in Omaha. There are 2 stores open now and more coming in early 2011! Yeah! I love that there are more options here now for the drug store deals. I have often seen other bloggers write about the free or extra cheap deals they get at CVS and I have been so jealous that they live near one! Well, no need for jealousy any more!

The 2 stores open are in West Omaha located at 144th and West Maple Road and 108th and Fort Streets. The ones coming in 2011 will be at 144th and U Streets in Millard, Harlan Drive and Galvin Road in Bellevue, and Sixth Street and Kanesville Boulevard in Council Bluffs.

Read all about it on the Omaha World Herald site here.
