LABOR DAY WEEKEND RECAP (part 1)

This weekend was not only long, but I did a lot, so I’m going to have to break it up into two different posts. I’ll do one today and then another Wednesday so it’s not more overwhelming than it already is. This is how the weekend went though; Friday I drove up to Tulsa after my last class of the day and was home relaxing at my parent’s for like an hour or so before my sister arrived with a couple of her friends and we took off to go to a Pow-Wow in Talequah, OK. Totally awesome, I can now say that I’ve danced under a full moon at a Pow-Wow.

Saturday, went thrifting with my parents. Picked up a couple things (pictures below), and then my mom, dad and I drove up to Nowata, OK to see this old hotel that my parents stumbled onto one time called “The Savoy“. Got some really really awesome pictures there as well (pictured below).

Sunday was Mom appreciation day, also known as her birthday. My grandpa came up from Shawnee, OK and we had a really fun day just doing family time and what not. I’ll post pics on that one and the Pow-Wow tomorrow. But first things first, on to the thrift purchases and the Savoy. Hope you had a great weekend! Enjoy!

P.S. My sister has some new purchases as well, pics at the end.

Got this thrifting and wore it today, hard to see but it’s a tuxedo shirt, and I love it! I’ll post my other finds tomorrow.

Photo-op! Oh and those are the new black shoes I mentioned in a previous post. I love how far down they lace up.

This store attached to the hotel looks like they just picked up and left one day and didn’t bother to take anything with them

For those of you not from the South, painting your porch roof a shade of blue prevents dirt dobbers and wasps from building nests.
