Welcome to Iowa


Today was moving day. I have to say it went pretty well but we didn't really move a whole lot and I think we may have picked one of the hottest days of the year (at least so far). We made it safe and sound. Jason will drive back to Madison tomorrow and I will start my new job on Monday. I don't have any exciting thoughts, stories, or recipes to share right now (although I have many to catch up on later). It is nice to be back in Iowa, it has been 7 years since I have called it home (it would be better if Jason were calling it home as well). Of course my sister handed me a request for Grand Jury Duty the within an hour of walking in the door.. just my luck!

We had dinner with Nathan, Heather and Ella at a Mexican restaurant in town that was quite good, although it always bothers me that they bring out the food almost immediately after you order it.

Oh, and by the way, if you want to make fun of the Iowa motto go ahead but you should take into account that before "Fields of Opportunities" it was "We Make You Smile."
