[celebrating 150 years of the peoples’ house]
I enjoyed reading this piece from the Washington Post about the beloved Iowa State Fair.
It’s almost tailgating time and I was recently browsing for some updated Iowa gear. Enter Tailgate – completely obsessed with all of their Hawkeye items.
You know I love me some Chip and Jo Gaines, and am so glad we can get some of their goodies at our local Targets. The new fall stuff is hitting shelves right now, and it is SO GOOD.
[Fox Creek Splash Pad is back open and we finally got to check it out!]
Can you believe it? College football season is almost here and this Hawkeye lovin’ family is HERE. FOR. IT. Tomorrow, the University of Iowa football team will hold its annual Kids at Kinnick Day. Meet Herky, get autographs and visit the Kids Zone for inflatable games, face painting, temporary tattoos.
As summertime winds down we are trying to squeeze in all of the items on our bucket list and the last two are: miniature golf and watch a movie outside. I’m hoping to check out the Jester Park Mini Golf course with the boys soon. Have you ever been there?
Goosebumps I tell you, goosebumps. That is what I have upon watching this clip. Details are just coming out about what will be an amazing event, and I have a feeling tickets are going to be HARD to snag though…

Oh. Em. Gee! Target just announced that it will be celebrating 20 years of collaborations with an epic reboot of 20 past designers! Who are you excited to see again?
I just finally got these Golden Goose dupe sneakers from Vici Collection in the mail and I love them! You will see me in these pretty much every weekend from here on out.
I am jumping ahead quite a bit and am thinking about all things FALL. How about you?! On my list of things to purchase: this welcome doormat and wooden pumpkins.

I don’t know about you, but I can’t wait to see the new cast of Netflix’s The Crown! And one of the actors let it slip that new episodes will be released in November. Add that to the September release of the Downton Abbey movie, and my period-piece lovin’ heart might just explode!
I didn’t go crazy during Amazon Prime Day, but I did pull the trigger on finally getting a pair of blue light blocking glasses for use at the office.
Local and looking for something fun to do with the kiddos next week? Then head to Court Avenue on Thursday when Union Pacific brings Big Boy to town in commemoration of the transcontinental railroad’s 150th anniversary.
