Greetings from the Ice Cream Capital of the World – complete with dairy cows right off the side of the road (to make all that ice cream, don’t ya’ know!)

The drive took a little over 3 hours during which I entered one crazy storm,

came out the other side to witness this beautiful scene,

and had myself a nice little sing-along to Whitney Houston’s "I Will Always Love You". You should have heard it. Epic, I say!

I arrived at my hotel and walked straight into this little welcome package as I entered my room. I’m sure the whole floor heard my "AWWWWW!!!!" as the door closed behind me!

Do not adjust your computer monitors, that booklet does indeed say "Free Ice Cream for a Year." omg.

Oh, I have to show you the view from my room. Hello, Iowa!

This just cracks me up. It’s so Iowa, and I couldn’t love it more.

I’m going to go drive around town for a little bit and get a bite to eat before the sun goes down. Perhaps I’ll check out Bob’s Drive In that so many of you are raving about! :D

See you tomorrow, friends!
