Dash and I decided to do the Road to Oklahoma shop hop this year and we started on Friday. If you've never done a shop hop here is how it works...you get a "passport" that tells you which shops to visit and when you visit the shops, they give you a stamp, a free quilt block pattern (or you can purchase their block kit) and often there is a little token gift or free fat quarter. If you fill in all the shops or even just one region, you are entered for different prize drawings. This one is all in Oklahoma and runs the entire month of June. We have 23 shops to visit!
We were able to get 13 of the shops this weekend and traveled 950 miles! We each bought a fat quarter at most shops (one shop didn't sell them!) and yes, Dash is playing along!
Our "loot" from the first day, purchases, and freebies.
The second day was just as good and I even found some charm packs I've been wanting.
We planned the second day's route so we could breakfast at Hugo's in Claremore, Oklahoma...a favorite of ours even if it's an hour and a half drive. Their bacon is heavenly...I got 2 scrambled eggs, bacon, German potatoes, biscuit, and gravy. It was delicious and no way could I finish it all!
We have 10 shops left and another 3 weeks to do them in. I think Dash is having fun, as he's planning our routes down to the last detail, lol! Give a man a challenge!
Thank you for visiting my blog today!
What is German potato's, they look yummy. hugs
I want that bacon!!! lol
Hoooo German potatoes are worth the trip! We're lucky to live in a nice German-y area so we get all the fun foods. Sounds like you guys are having a ton of fun. :D
Your breakfast platter looks fabulous. I would like to know what German Potatoes are. Nice haul you have gotten on your adventure. Enjoy the rest of the shop hopping!
This sounds absolutely fabulous, I can't think of a better way to spend a weekend. x

What a fun time, Sharon! And you've done so well at 13 shops--hope you can manage to squeeze them in, too. Enjoy all that new stash :)
What a fun idea. It brings home just how large your State is too!
Gosh, so many shops! Sounds like fun!
I meant to say, “what are German potatoes?” I’d love to know.
A nice adventure for you both, how lovely Dash is choosing fabrics too.
Sounds like a great weekend and lots of goodies bought... Fun, fun, fun...
That is a cool event. I've never heard of that before!
Wow! I don't know which is more delicious....that breakfast, or all that fabric! :-) Fun stuff!
