March's Monthly Trip to Iowa

Me and Rhonda at the Chrome Horse Saloon

Alaina can't accuse me of not being a devoted friend.  Ever since she moved to Iowa last July, I've made the three hour one-way trip at least once a month to visit.

For March, we brought another couple along with us.  We've all been friends for a while, but it was the first time for the other couple to visit since Alaina moved.

We made it up there on Saturday and spent the night.  Our first stop was the Chrome Horse Saloon for some drinks and eats.  Bar/pub food is the best.

Later that evening we attended a Pheasants Forever fundraiser.  Jason and I don't even hunt pheasant but we sure supported the club that night!  It was raining money up in there.

If you've read my blog for the last year, you know how much I love the Stuff, Etc. store in Cedar Rapids.  I'm seriously not much of an in-store shopper but that place sucks me in.  Me, Rhonda and Alaina spent a good three hours in there Sunday.

It was Rhonda's first trip to Stuff.  We broke her in right!

I won't even begin to tell you what all I bought but it was mostly clothes.  Enough so that I had to clear out my closet to make room.  In my defense, I spent $81 on 43 items.  I found the ultimate bargains that day.

We bought so much stuff from Stuff that my Blazer was stuffed.

Until next month's Iowa adventure....

Looks like you had a great time! What a wonderful friend you are to make the trek once a month.

Wow I wish I had one of those stores where I live. You made a good haul.
