Taste and Sounds of Memphis -Giveaway

Elvis, Beale Street, B.B. King, and style of BBQ that is all their own.  This – and so much more – is Memphis.  We have been there now twice over the years.  Both itineraries were so different as there is so much to do in this city. It would be really hard to take it […]

Dubuque – Tour the Mississippi Riverfront Giveaway

We were on our way to the start of our vacation in Wisconsin last summer.  Just before we hit the Wisconsin border, we drove by Dubuque, IA.  It immediately caught my eye as a place that I wanted to come back and check out later.  Something about the look and feel even from the brief […]

Museums and More in St. Joseph, MO – Giveaway

We used to think that St. Joseph, like probably many  cities, was just a stop on the way to Kansas City.  We have learned in the past few months that it is much more than that.  We had been there before to see the Pony Express Museum, and to take in a little bit of […]

We are big fans of Kansas City.  We’ve visited the city several times as it’s a short 3-hour drive Omaha.The neat thing about the Fountain City is that we can find something new to do on almost every visit. In the past year we made ourt first jaunt to City Market where we found spices […]

Falling for Bridges of Madison County & Handmade Scarf Giveaway

The first time we visited the Bridges of Madison County in 2000 was actually a last minute decision.  We and our friends Mark and Ron  went to the Nebraska Husker game at Iowa State Cyclones in Ames the first weekend of October.  The day of the game should have been around 54 degrees (average). Instead, we froze at […]
