top 10 things I miss about iowa.

It doesn’t matter if you move 30 mins away or 3,000 miles …you’re guaranteed to miss something. I miss my family & friends [that goes without saying]. But for about the first 6 months, I was so excited about exploring my new surroundings ..I [temporarily] forgot about my old ones. Now that I am one year and two months in, I will divulge the …[in no particular order]

top 10 things I miss about iowa.

1. ‘Mexi & Margs‘ nights. [$3 margs, delicious mexican food, & grrreat company].

2. Line dancing. [I was introduced to this only 3 weeks before moving to NY, but it is a BALL ..& surprisingly a fun workout].

3. Tailgating, football games, & seeing black & gold everywhere. [so basically …college].


4. Saying “pop” & not being judged. [“pop” drinkers: blue. “soda” drinkers: green & yellow].

5. Saying “traffic” & meaning there are 5-10 other cars on the road.

6. Grocery shopping every two weeks. [instead of every day].

7. Not worrying about how much or how heavy your groceries are because you’ll cart them out to your car and drive home.

8. Prices ..on everything; beer, food, rent, chain restaurants [an Applebee’s quesadilla burger: $16.95. wish that was a joke].

9. Not being too concerned with the daily weather report, because your car has heat, AC, and if raining ..only a couple steps out your front door.

10. Old Chicago. & the World Beer Tour. [I can’t even comment on this one, I’ll cry …]

There you have it folks ..the top 10 things I miss about my home state – IOWA.
