The Adventures of
Bella Blu: The M2O-mobile
Bella Blu's first stop in Omaha was at
. She is such a workaholic and this place has free wi-fi. They also have a wide selection of gourmet hot teas (her favorite!) to enjoy while inside this air conditioned oasis. We love supporting local, independent businesses like this family-owned coffee shop!
The M2O-mobile knows a good deal when she sees one, and at The Brass Armadillo Antique Mall
, there are gobs of them to be scooped up. If you have the patience, you can scour their 30,000 square-foot sales floor featuring more than 375 dealers with jewelry, glassware, furniture, and so much more for a bargain. We never visit Omaha without a stop here!
It's time for lunch and there is only one destination on Bella-Blu's mind. It's Runza
! With a funny name, runzas have been made from scratch since 1949 with ground beef, onions, cabbage, and secret spices all stuffed in homemade dough. Don't forget to order some of those crispy crinkle fries too!
There are plenty of cultural destinations in Omaha that the M2O-mobile could have visited. The Joslyn Art Museum
's 1931 Art Deco building is a clear frontrunner.
Dinnertime in Omaha is special because there are family-owned restaurants like Greek Islands
. Bella Blu is a huge fan of their salad dressing so ask for some extra at the table and then take home a bottle or eight when you checkout!
It's no secret that Bella Blu: The M2O-mobile has a gigantic sweet tooth! Ted & Wally's
is the perfect stop to satisfy her craving. This unique parlor has been serving award-winning premium homemade ice cream made the old fashioned way using rock salt and ice, in Omaha, Nebraska's Old Market District since 1986.
You've just got to try their incredible flavor combinations like Mango Curry, Chocolate Bacon, and Salty Seahorse. What a perfect way to end the day!!

How one perceives the impending drive can either make or break anticipation for the destination. To ensure a pleasant experience, frame your mind to relax and unwind before the arrival. Driving not only guides you to a new scene, the experience itself can become an oasis of optimism. Before taking off consider these tips for a stress-free journey... READ MORE.
Special Event Hosted by Mission 2 Organize
Bahar and Schae have taken one road trip together. It was to Milwaukee to see a Cirque du Soleil show. Schae settled into the back seat with her snacks, books, and other travel goodies while Bahar drove. Just as Schae was getting settled in, Bahar announced, "We're here!" Schae was so disappointed that the journey had already ended and everyone had a good laugh about it.
Hopefully you have some funny road trip stories of your own. That is the beauty of the odyssey! There is always some entertaining adventure around the bend. It's a fantastic way to get to know your travel buddy better too. ;-)
The past month has been crazy busy for M2O. Our clients are hosting parties, completely revamping their homes, and moving into new digs. It's an exciting time for all of us. Speaking of excitement, we are getting ready for our next fashion show
. This one is going to be off the hook! We hope you can make it out on August 1 to support a good cause, EdgeAlliance
