I’ll Go Anywhere With You

5 Aug

Vacation is something I look forward to every single summer. That one week away from the day to day routine is good for the soul! It helps you to rest and refocus so you come back to normal life with a renewed outlook!

My favorite place to vacation is the white sand beach of Destin, FL. It has and will always be my happy place.

This year we decided to save some money and go on a week long road trip! We are trying to build a house ya know! ūüėŹ
Our journey started in Fayetteville. I’ve never been before so we travelled about 4 hours north to see the home of the Razorbacks! We visited a couple of popular stores I’d always wanted to go to and then settled in for the night.

Our first stop; Fayetteville…home of the Razorbacks!!

Don’t let the face fool you, he was excited!!

Our next stop was Eureka Springs to see the gorgeous Thorncrown Chapel and the Christ of the Ozarks statue. Eureka Springs is such a different and very eclectic city. The homes and businesses have the look of those you’d imagine to be in a storybook. Such a unique place. The Chapel was one of the most beautiful churches I’ve ever seen. My cousin, E. Fay Jones, was the architects on this beautiful building. Pretty cool right?! And the Christ statue was massive and beautiful. It overlooked the Ozark mountains!

 

 

 

 

Having lunch downtown in Eureka Springs!

Such a cute restaurant with yummy food!

 

 

Branson, MO was our third stop on our trip! We stayed one night, and while we were there we saw Moses at the Sight & Sound Theater and had some awesome seafood at Landry’s! Moses was such a fantastic show. It was a depiction of the life and purpose of Moses and how he, with God’s guidance and strength, helped to free the Hebrew slaves from Pharoah’s ruling. So awesome!!

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Our fourth stop was the small town of Pawhuska, OK. You may be wondering, “what in the world would take you to that part of Oklahoma?!” Well, anyone that knows me knows my LOVE for all things Pioneer Woman. ūüėć Whether it be her dishes, cookbooks, recipes, or TV show, the Pioneer Woman is basically my spirit animal!!! ūü§ó My incredible husband agreed to take me to her new Mercantile that opened in October 2016. It was EVERYTHING I imagined it to be and so much more. There were thousands of items in the store, an incredible deli with amazing food (such as the best biscuit I’ve ever eaten, which I know will be in Heaven someday!), and a bakery with more homemade baked goods than I can count!!! We even stumbled upon the entrance to their Ranch!!!! Ahhh!!! ūüėćūüėćūüėć

Our fifth and final stop was the DFW area to spend a few days with friends!! We arrived late that Thursday evening. That Friday Houston & his buddy went fishing while my friend Tiffany and I hung out! It was so good to catch up! Then that night we went to the Texas Rangers game to watch them win against the Baltimore Oriole’s!! So fun!!! Saturday Tiffany & I did some shopping (hello new Kate Spade purse! ūüėć) then we had church that night and some super delish Italian food! We had the best time hanging out and catching up with friends!

We got home on Sunday and we’re welcomed by our sweet pup that we missed terribly!!! ūüėćūüėćūüėć It was a wonderful vacation, but truly there is no place like home!

On this trip we were able to save money, see new places, laugh and make lots of memories! We drove just over 1,500 total miles in just 6 days! I am so thankful I get to travel the world with my best friend/husband. ‚̧ԳŹ

“I could travel the world and the ocean blue, but I’ll never be home until I’m with you.”

Blessings,
