I'm not in Iowa, but how is it going, have you settled in? is the fresh corn the best??Anyone here from Iowa? I recently moved here. Ames area
Moving is hard on the body, that's for sure! I'm glad you are settling in.We haven't fully settled in, there are still quite a lot of boxes. It took my body a solid 4 days to recover, I felt like I had the flu (body aches). Part of it was moving boxes, straining my back, dropping something on my foot, splitting my foot open at the heal, and tripping on cement and hurting my knee. I'm very accident prone, as you can see We haven't had any corn yet, but I have some in my fridge. The odd part is it's been imported from another state
So far, I really like the area. It's calm, our apartment is amazing, and the city has so much in it. We have Starbucks, Target, game stores, restaurants, fast food, Best Buy, a book store, etc.
Thank you!Moving is hard on the body, that's for sure! I'm glad you are settling in.
Not really, the Speedway isn't my thingYou're less than an hour away from Iowa Speedway, so there's a good thing.
If you plan on traveling at all, get used to corn fields. Endless corn fields. Punctuated by soybean fields and very occasionally sunflower fields.
You should move closer, so we can be friends and go to Whole Foods togetherI live in Iowa, but you and I are about an hour and a half apart. I live in rural S.E. iowa.
That's what I did! I spent $120 on 3 bags of groceries. Here are some of the vegan items I picked up:I dont know what I would do if I had access to a whole foods store! I would probably walk out with a cart full of all those cool vegan foods the bloggers eat.
when is dinner?
Dinner is at 5tonight I am having a cheeseless pizza from the local caseys, I'd be willing to share, or at least trade, for a bowl of vegan mac!
I'll check it out! Apparently Kum and Go has a kitchen for sandwiches in the morning? That's what the commercial said. That's just weird. I'm used to gross gas station convenient stores I will miss the crunch ice of AMPM (which I rarely got anyway, it's like Sonic's ice)I know its weird, but Casey's general store/gas station makes really nice pizzas for order. they also make donuts and subs in stores as well.
They handmake the dough for the pizza, donuts, and sandwiches, in store. I highly recommend it
Come on over, it's nice here! It snows though, and rains. It's weird, stuff comes from the sky other than sun :sunny:This makes me want to move to Iowa!

If you lived in Des Moines or Ames, I think you'd be happier with IowaIowa is a weird place. good weird, but weird nonetheless. some of the deeply rural restaurants make me long for a gas station's fare. LOL.
People love deep fried pork tenderloin sandwiches and made-rite loose meat hamburgers down were I am. If the resturaunt specializes in either of those items, I know I'm going to have an interesting time trying to find something on the menu for myself.
Sometimes you gotta make do with a pint of budwiser, an order of fries, and a crunchy iceberg salad. Oh well, I like beer.
And you moved to Iowa willingly?so random, i am from california. ventura county!
