Alex and Ice Cream and Ladd—Oh My! by The Pioneer Woman

Alex is graduating next week! (I really should have put a question mark on that sentence, because I truly can’t believe it.)
   I’m so proud of her. And I can’t wait for her to come back home and live with me forever!
In my dreams…she actually has a job and is moving to Dallas later this summer.
(But that’s closer to me than college was!)
   News from Pawhuska: We are opening a little ice cream place in town later this week. It will have cones and sundaes and fun candy, and Bryce and his friend Kevin were happy to volunteer as tribute (tasters) last week.
They’re so self sacrificing!
   These are the bare bones of the ice cream place: We basically painted the brick white, had the bench built in, added pendant lights, and brought in some tables. We have a little more work to do this week (we’ll paint some fun murals on the wall) but we’re almost there!
(I’ll tell you what we’re calling it later this week.)
(It might make you cry.)
   I finished all the recipes for my new cookbook, The New Frontier!
   It won’t be out until October and I still have a lot of editing to do, but to have all the recipes finished and written is a great feeling.
   I’m ending with this photo of Ladd and me because I sure do like him.
Happy Monday, friends!
