At the beginning of the month it didn't look like we were going to break any records for the month. I'm happy to say that changed and as of 5.30pm today 5...
The North Ridge Neighborhood unsurprisingly borders on North Ridge Park. It's North of I-80 and on the North West side of Coralville. We're having beautiful Autumn weather in Iowa this year and last week I took a trip out to my favorite park in Coralville to take some photos of the park and the s...

Some of my favor...
Halloween Weekend is coming up. Here are links to some of the popular venues in downtown Iowa City for live entertainment and good food... With a couple of them vying for the position of pulling the best draft beer in town. I'm a Guiness gal myself. (Which I'm guessing won't come as a surprise to...

It was a beautiful Fall day in Coralville today. Went over to my listing on Oakleaf St to check everything was in order for the showings tomorrow. (Yes, plural, more than one showing.
