            Appeal from the Iowa District Court for Sioux County, Jeffrey A. Neary, Judge.  AFFIRMED.    Considered by Bower, C.J., and May and Greer, JJ.  Opinion by Bower, C.J.  (10 pages)

            Denene Nutt, formerly known as Denene Nibbelink, appeals various provisions of the decree dissolving her marriage to Jody Nibbelink.  Denene asserts the decree entered is inequitable in (1) underestimating the value of Integrity Concrete, LLC, (2) treating the parties’ post-separation debt differently, (3) dividing the parties’ debts and assets and ordering no property settlement payment, and (4) ordering each party to pay their own attorney and expert fees.  OPINION HOLDS: We find no failure to do equity and therefore affirm.
