Yesterday my mom, Lexy and I headed to OKC to do a little shopping at the outlet malls. We found some really good sales! I'm pretty much set for school if I could just find some jeans that fit me and I like. I'm a little picky about jeans. I did get a really nice dress for half price at banana republic that I can't wait to wear. Now I need to find some shoes. :)
We also went a little crazy buying clothes for my little cousins and for my Cousin Ashley's baby that is due in September. I wish I could show you some pictures because the clothes are so stinkin' cute but I want her to see them first. Outlet malls are the best places to buy kids clothes. We got tons of cute clothes for Brett and Emma too.
We decided to take Route 66 home and it was so fun! Let's take a trip!
This isn't actually on Route 66 but it is an overpass right by the mall and it is supposed to be a Scissor-Tailed Flycatcher (Oklahoma state bird). We thought it was a transformer for a long time. ha
First stop= Pops!
You can get gas here and load up on pop from all over the world.
The different refrigerators have different flavors. This one was different types of Root Beer.
So hard to decide! It was probably a good thing Macy wasn't with us. ;)
I thought maybe I needed this but it sounds disgusting so we passed.
We bought 6 different kinds. They are all just random we saw that looked cool. And of course a grape Nehi. (We are a little obsessed with M*A*S*H)
We got a few for the ride home. My mom got Raspberry, I got Dr. Pepper (YUM!), and Lexy got Manzana LIFT. All were so yummy!
Lexy and I!
Next stop= Arcadia Round Barn. They have a lot of weddings here. Everything was closed when we went through so we didn't get to go in.
Alfalfa ready to be baled along the way.
A little restaurant.
I wasn't sure what this was at first but supposedly they crack walnuts in there.
Cute little movie theater in Chandler.
Museum of Route 66 in Chandler.
One of the original hotels.
This little Cafe is what inspired the movie Cars.
This is weird to me but people throw their shoes on this tree.
Original road on left and the highway now on the right.
Almost to Bristow.
Pauper/Slave cemetery. Most have no name or anything on the cross.
You can read more about these landmarks here.
It was a little weird not having Macy along but Lexy came along and kept us company! It was such a fun day!
P.S. You like how I antiqued all these?! ha
