The Pioneer Woman Mercantile Opens In Pawhuska

For close to a decade now, Ree Drummond has been blessing the internet world and the television landscape with her creativity. With her most notable talent being her cooking, she actually began her career through blogging. Her writing success further led to publishing multiple books that landed her at the prized No. 1 New York Times Bestselling list. Her blogging name “The Pioneer Woman” may be more recognizable today than her own name thanks to her widely popular Food Network show.

If these achievements don’t give you the hint, Ree is quite the business woman. She has grown her brand from just an online food blog, to a leading name in the food and home industry. Her kitchen-ware products are available nationwide in Walmart stores and feature unique and pleasing floral designs that are great for any home. Not to mention, her Food Network program and Tasty Kitchen website make her easy-to-learn and delicious recipes more accessible than ever before.

Among Ree’s ever-growing list of accomplishments, she has now opened a bakery, deli and general store near her ranch in Pawhuska, Oklahoma. The lovely store is actually a renovated old building along Main Street. The Drummond’s have been working on this project since the beginning of 2014 and used the space at first for office areas. Then, they began transforming the building into a fully-functional and charming general store.

It’s actually quite the concept. The store has merchandise, comfort food, coffee, and much more. The walls are covered with lovely wooden shelves and storage for all of the inventory to displayed on and the store has a very nonconventional retail feel to it. Instead, the store looks a lot like a large home, just filled with a lot of stuff. The endless amount of coffee mugs, pillows, and tasty treats will have any customer hooked for the day.

The Pioneer Woman also plans on having an online site open for The Mercantile very soon, but I definitely plan on making a road trip to the store myself. I’ve always been a fan of celebrities who grew up or are based out of Oklahoma. It’s always so great to see success in our little state that we call home.

To add to The Mercantile’s highly-anticipated opening, the town of Pawhuska is thrilled to see such a store open along Main Street. Centered right in the middle of Osage County, Pawhuska is a town with a population of just over 3,500 people. It’s far from a ghost town, but The Mercantile is definitely a welcomed boost to the town’s economy. People just like myself, are looking forward to traveling to Pawhuska to visit the store in the coming months and supporting local business.

With such high success in any venture she embarks upon, the sky seems to be the limit for The Pioneer Woman. I look forward to making a trip to The Mercantile and supporting such a driven, Oklahoma-based company. More information on The Mercantile’s hours of operation, story, and photos can be seen on

As the holiday season draws nearer, many of us find ourselves drawn to the same old Rankin-Bass Christmas specials and the perennial favorite, "A Charlie Brown Christmas." However, I would like to suggest an overlooked alternative, "Arthur's Perfect Christmas." It is a heartfelt, funny, and surprisingly inclusive Christmas special that deserves more recognition.

Reclaim Your Weekends From The 'Sunday Scaries' With 'Self-Love Sundays' Instead
Olivia DeLucia

Laid back and taking it easy — sometimes that is the motto we all need after a busy week. Sunday scaries? Yes, they are valid – but you know what else is? A Sunday full of self-love. A lazy Sunday spent doing what you feel needs to be done to ease into the next week. Self-Love Sundays are a guilty pleasure that isn't only essential for our mind, and body, but are also a surprisingly proactive way to devote the upcoming week with a clear mindset.

So, what is a more suitable way to dedicate your week's end than a beautifully, connected playlist to accompany your face masks and journaling? Cheers, to a Self-Love Sunday (and a playlist intertwined with it to match). (Please note: "Sunday Morning" isn't included in this list, due to the obvious, but feel free to blast it anyway, we know you want to).

The sun rose and peeked through the sheer curtains. Rose’s alarm shrieked. The loud bells caused her phone to jump on the side table. It was time for her to get ready for church. Blindly reaching for her phone, she shut the alarm off and pulled at the covers providing her a cocoon of warmth and tossed them to the side. She swept her bare feet across the bed to touch the cool wooden floor.

Rose softly tiptoed to the corner of the bedroom to grab her clothes dangling on the arm of the bedroom chair. Scooping all of the items of her chosen outfit, she headed to the bathroom hoping that she wouldn’t drop anything.

Round, piercing blue eyes stared back at her in the bathroom mirror. Rose fingered the wrinkles forming around her eyes. So many of them bore signs of laughter and smiling. Slowly dropping her hands, she couldn’t remember the last time she laughed in her home with Tom. Shaking her head as if to erase the negative thoughts, she reached for her makeup bag and went through her regular routine.

Applying her favorite deep rose lipstick, Rose headed downstairs to make her coffee and bagel to take with her to church. The smell of dark-roast coffee swirled in the air as Rose sliced her cinnamon raisin bagel. Hearing the Keurig sputter with the fresh brew, Rose found the interruption of the stillness comforting. The toaster signaled that her bagel was done with a soft pop. It had a delicious golden brown color. Placing the bagel on the counter, she generously spread honey nut flavored cream cheese across both halves. Gathering her bible, notebook, and pens from the side table on the porch she stuffed them into her purse. Purse hanging on her right shoulder she juggled her coffee and bagel in both of her hands as she headed to the garage.

This Holiday Season, Choose To Be Eco-friendly And Reduce Pollution

Many of us have old magazines lying around, fully read and not of much use anymore. However, we can use their bright colors and prints as a stylish and trendy wrapping paper!


It can be overwhelming to see the detrimental effects of climate change and pollution on the news, from animals dying and forest fires spreading, but there are smaller changes that we can all make to reduce our carbon footprint, and it begins with our gifting season.

On average, Americans throw 25% more trash between Thanksgiving and New Years, which translates to 25 million tons of garbage. That's 1 million extra tons per week.
