Happy June! We declared the last week a “staycation” to just be a family and refresh during this really difficult season. It was interrupted by Chloe ending up with strep throat, but we made the most of it.
Today, I wanted to share some about The Pioneer Woman Mercantile. I feel really blessed because I was able to go TWICE last week!! My mom-in-law and I had been planning a trip for a while, and we went early Wednesday morning. We were some of the only people in there, and were completely shocked! The weather was beautiful.
The store itself is very cute. It is full of lots of fun odds and ends, vintage dishes, Drummond Ranch gear, and some cute clothes/accessories. I did not eat at the restaurant, but I have heard that the food is very good.
Upstairs is the best part. The bakery! I had some of her delicious cinnamon rolls for breakfast. You can’t go wrong with cinnamon rolls and a latte.
My second trip, I was able to take my mom and dad to visit! We got REALLY lucky and went on a day where they were doing lodge tours. We picked up directions and headed to Drummond Ranch. Pictures cannot adequately show how beautiful everything was.
The view was incredible. During the drive back to the lodge, there are countless wild horses. We were in awe. The lodge itself is beautiful. We all commented on how we would love to live in a place like that.
I couldn’t pass up the chance to take a selfie with Walter!!
If you ever get the chance to go, you MUST. Pawhuska, OK is beautiful. The town is so quaint with lots of little shops and places to eat. I feel really blessed to live close enough that we are talking about taking the kids soon!
Here is a panoramic picture of the view from the lodge. The pictures just don’t do justice. It is so incredibly generous of the Drummond’s to open up their home the way they did.
