Happy Friday and Happy September! Let’s get this month off to a fantastic start! Here are my Friday Favorites for the week:
1. Weekday Trips
Brent took the week off and we’ve been running errands and tackling projects around the house (yesterday involved lots of yard work and building a shelving unit in the garage – exciting stuff!). We took off Wednesday for Pawhuska, Oklahoma to check out The Pioneer Woman Mercantile and had a fabulous time.
Brent is a huge PW fan and we’ve been talking about planning a trip for some time. We couldn’t have picked a better day to go, the weather was perfect and our timing was excellent in regard to the crowds.
The lodge was open for tours so we went ahead and checked that out too after we ate!
Now for the most important part of the trip, the food! After enjoying the queso appetizer, Brent ordered the Chicken Fried Steak and I had the Chicken Parmesan. Both were delicious and yes, we stopped to get a bag of ice after lunch so we could fill up Brent’s golf cooler and take the leftovers home. (Brent confirmed the food was still delicious even after getting a little soggy from our impromptu storage solution!)
A few tips if you make the trip to Pawhuska:
- Read this helpful post on Splendry!
- If you can, go on a weekday during a non-holiday/school vacation time. We waited until school was back in session in Oklahoma before we made the trip!
- We arrived at just after 10 AM and we could have walked right in to eat breakfast if we had wanted to. If you want to beat the lunch crowd, get in line for the restaurant by 10:30. We did and were sitting down to lunch by 10:49!
After our delicious lunch and lodge tour we took the short trip back to the Mercantile for dessert and coffee (for Brent) before making the trip back home. Overall it was a really fun day and we can’t wait to go back!
2. September Giveaway
Check back next week for another fun giveaway this month! I’ll have details up on Thursday!
3. This closet tour
I always love to peak inside an amazing closet and this Vogue tour of Mariah Carey’s closet doesn’t disappoint! The shoes, the Marilyn Monroe memorabilia, and yes, there’s even a lingerie closet. Because of course there is.
