What is your favorite toppings on pizza?

My ALL time favorite pizza topping is Canadian Bacon & Sauerkraut! OMG! Amazing!! If I can’t get that kind, then I normally just eat cheese. My favorite CB & Sauerkraut is from Mabes Pizza in Decorah. You can get them mailed to you too, so even when you can’t be there which is SO cool!!

Top 5 places to shop local in Mason City, Iowa

Yesterday, a few of the North Iowa Bloggers decided to spend the morning shopping local in Mason City, Iowa. Mason City is what I would say is the central “hub” of North Iowa.

We were sure to find something for everyone in our families.

Here are the stores that we stopped at and are a must during the holiday season.
