Kim’s note: This is the 11th installment in a series introducing different voices from around Omaha.
Each week Whenever I can, I’ll introduce a different Omaha blogger, what his or her blog is all about, and since I love getting recommendations as much as I love giving them, I’ve asked each person to share some Omaha tips. I think today’s blogger, Kristin, will inspire you to make a few wardrobe updates – she’s that good. Hope you enjoy getting to know Omaha bloggers!
A Midwestern Mix
Name: Kristin Kruse
Blog: A Midwestern Mix
Describe your blog in five words: Personal, Eclectic, Fashion-Forward, Inviting, Fun
What are the two most popular posts on your blog? What makes them so good?
Ironically, this one and this one. I think they’ve been so successful because they’re an incredibly personal look into my life/family. Both feature one of my sisters (I have three) and are more emotionally-driven than my more surface-level posts regarding fashion & fitness.
What social media channel are you on the most and why? Instagram for sure. I love being able to capture moments with a single picture & a short caption. It’s fun to share such small pieces of my day, plus I find TONS of inspiration there. From outfits to new workouts to interior design and motivational quotes, I scroll Insta way more than probably necessary. 🙂
You get one hour to spend on writing, where in Omaha do you go? If the weather is good, I love to grab a big cozy blanket and head to Lake Cunningham (next to the lighthouse) where my view is unobstructed and I feel like I’m miles from the hustle & bustle, yet only minutes away. If it’s not so nice, Fox Hollow Coffee Shop is my go-to. I love the people, the drinks, and the sweet little fireplace.
If friends visit from out of town, what three places would you take them to? Lucky Bucket Brewery for a tour, appetizers & drinks at M’s Pub, and the zoo!
What’s your favorite free thing to do in Omaha? Go for a long run around Lake Zorinksy with my hubby and our Labradoodle, Beckett!

I’m a 26, Midwestern born and raised, oldest of four girls, wife of three years to Kyle, and dog-mom to my 5-year-old Labradoodle, Beckett. I have a passion for writing, survive on coconut milk lattes, and have too many pairs of jeans. By day I work in the work of IT and by night I try to fit in blogging, happy hours, and quality time with loved ones. I’m a sports fanatic and will support my alma mater (Iowa State) no matter how bad the football team gets! 🙂
