Brad and I have lived in Springfield, MO, for almost three months now. We’ve experienced some really cool stuff, like Rutledge Wilson Farm, Grad School, and Big Mama’s Coffee. We’re both locked into two year commitments here in the Ozarks, so we really want to make the most of our time here! What does that mean? Bucket list. I’ll blog about our favorites!
Springfield Cardinals Game: Brad and I are loyal Royals fans and always will be, but we have to admit that Springfield Cardinals games sound pretty fun. This year’s season is over, but we’ve got next year!
Silver Dollar City at Christmas: Okay so this is Branson, but it’s only thirty minutes down the road! I’ve only been to SDC at Christmas once when I was little, so I’m really excited to go back this year, especially with my hubby :)
Visit every coffee shop: I’ve already posted about this one. We like coffee. There are a lot of neat coffee shops in Springfield, so of course we have to visit them all! We’re already hit up a few! Some that are still on our list are Heroes, Dancing Mule, and The Potter’s House.
See a movie at the Moxie: The Moxie is our local hipster movie theater; they show independent and foreign films. Plus it’s a non-profit that has kids programs! It’s really unique and something we didn’t have in Bolivar or back home, so we’re looking forward to experiencing this piece of Springfield.
Eat at Aunt Martha’s Pancake House: Aunt Martha’s has been open for over 53 years! I hear it’s delicious, and I mean how can you really go wrong with pancakes?
There are, of course, many other things we are excited to do in Springfield, but these are the big ones! I’ll keep you updated on our adventures! Plus, we’d love more suggestions! Have a happy fall weekend.
