  • Homemade Quality at...

    While in Kalona, we went to the Kalona Bakery. While we were there, we checked out their menu. They had freshly made sandwiches and soups.They are very famous for their donuts, pastries, cookies, cakes, pies, rolls, bread, and homemade noodles. My mother always made such delicious homemade noodles [very thin], and when I saw theirs, I just had to...


    This is our brand new mall in West Des Moines. It has a lot to offer with two floors. You can find a bargain or an item to splurge on. Well, Oh I don't know! We just shop for normal things like clothes, shoes, jewelery, accessories, etc., etc. Price depends on what you buy!

  • Burlington Coat Factory in Des Moines

    This is one of the best Burlington Coat Factorys I have been to. The prices are cheap, lots of sale items and lots of good products. Lots of Enyce, Sean John, South Pole and other clothing of that sort.

  • Great Gifts and Gourmet Coffees

    While on our Ladies Getaway Weekend, we drove to Dubuque, Iowa to visit the shops on Bluff Street. It was a Sunday, and most stores did not open until noon, and all the stores were not open. Probably the best store that we visited that Sunday was calledBasket Expressions. All four of us were able to find items that we purchased, and that is rare.A...

    When you shop at Amana Colonies, you won't see a "chain store" in sight! Instead, you will discover handcrafted merchandise, specialty shops, boutique fashions, quality foods/beverages, and unique toys.As Jill and I wander the streets of Amana, we took our time and enjoyed this one-of-a-kind type of shopping.I cannot talk about all of the shops,...

  • Jill's Coat Purchase

    It's almost a tradition that whenever Jill goes on a trip, she automatically searches for a new jacket [I think she has a fetish for jackets, which is a nice fetish to have!]When we were in Amana, one of the seven Amana Colonies, we went inside a store called Yana's Ladies Boutique. It is a new shop in Amana and they advertise, "Classy Clothing &...

  • Jill Found the Perfect Hat at

    When Jill and I were shopping at Cable Car Square, she kept saying that she really needed a new hat; one that was capable of keeping sun off of her face, but it also had to be fashionable. We had looked in several places when visiting Galena, Illinois, but had not found one that suited her.Well, that all changed when we walked into the shop called...

  • Unique Gifts are Found at...

    While visiting Cable Car Square, we stopped in at an architectural beauty called Willows. They feature antiques, home decor and florals. The thing that Jill and I enjoyed about Willows is the unique, one-of-a-kind gifts on display. There were several rooms downstairs and upstairs, but they were not so jam-packed that you could not see the displays...

  • Biggest Mall In Iowa!

    This is the largest mall in Iowa! Okay, so maybe that's not a huge distinction in the grand scheme of things, but trust me, it's the best you'll do in all of Iowa. This mall has loads of great stores (my favorites, Old Navy and Rue 21) as well as a movie theatre, a Target and Best Buy attached, a huge food court, and a fun ice skating rink...
