Hi y'all!
I'm Tracey, a sahm to one daughter who is almost two years old.
I was born and raised in the south, I moved here to be with my now husband. I've fallen in love with the state, the actual seasons and the people. I live in central Iowa and know just a couple of people here.

Hello Iowa Moms!

My name is Stephanie and I live about 20 minutes east of Cedar Rapids.  I do work full time as an accountant in Cedar Rapids.  I'm married and we have 2 children, Kasey, 6, and Ryan, 3.  I keep busy with my full time job, the track photographer at Cedar County Raceway in Tipton, and I'm also at Miche rep (  Between my husband racing (although we're on a hiatus right now), the kiddos activities, my Miche business (home parties, vendor shows, one off orders), and my full time job, I'm always on the go.  But I wouldn't have it any other way!

Nope, I live in Lisbon but I'm in Tipton every Friday night for the races :)

Do you love purses? Are you looking to earn extra money? Contact me about Miche! Purses with interchangeable shells! Check my website out at

Hi..I live in WDM.  I moved here in Feb from the Phoenix, AZ area.  I have a daughter that is 14 months and expecting my 2nd little girl mid October.  Does anyone know of any part-time at home daycares I can take my daughter to a couple days a week?  She is with me all week and she needs to be around other little people.  Thanks for any helpful info:)

Well I am not sure if I am allowed to be part of this group since I do not live in Iowa anymore :(  I was born in Arizona, lived there for maybe 6 months. Was adopted by a wonderful couple from Iowa so that is where I went :)  Lived there untill I was 29 ish?? Lost track of time ha. I met and married my husband in Iowa (even though he is from California).  Had both of my girls at the University of Iowa.  Lived in and around the same area the whole time I was in Iowa.  (Southeast Iowa, Washington and Henry County).  Up till almost 3 years ago we were still there.  However 3 1/2 years ago we felt that God was pulling us somewhere.  As hard as it was to say good bye to Iowa, to my family we knew that we needed to listen and go.  So we sold the house, packed the girls up and went East. Far east as in we live in Maine now :)  We love it here, we miss Iowa immensely but we are where we should be, we know that now.  We get home to Iowa so far have every summer for 2 weeks.  It is so good to go home and visit and be HOME.   I hope I can be part of this group it will be nice to be connected to people in Iowa more then I am out here!!!  People look at me like I am crazy when they find out I am from Iowa.  Of course the common response OH Potatoes UGH NO not Idaho, IOWA people.  lol.  Hope to get to know all of you better!
