We love the businesses and town attractions that Sand Springs has to offer, so we wanted to check some out! With just $74.63, we sent Brayden and Ashley Blauw out to make a mark on our town. Brayden and Ashley are the youth pastors at Reach Church in Sand Springs. They have a passion for the youth ministry and love being a part of this town through their work at Reach Church. We thought they would be the perfect couple to explore Sand Springs.
During their excursion, Brayden and Ashley started out at Livi Lee’s Donuts with a glazed sprinkle and cake donut. What better way to start out the day than at Livi Lee’s?! This donut shop, which now has five locations, started in Sand Springs and is a staple in the community. They spent $2.67 at Livi Lee’s Donuts.
After a tasty breakfast at Livi Lee’s, Brayden and Ashley made their way to YellowHouse Kids Boutique to do some shopping. Brayden and Ashley are four months pregnant and wanted to find the perfect baby outfit for their baby boy. After spending some time looking at all the cute outfits, they finally decided on buying a camo outfit that will be perfect for their first child. There is no doubt, the Blauws will be making their way back to YellowHouse once their little boy arrives. They spent $29.35 at YellowHouse Kids Boutique.
Located right next door was the Blauws next stop, The Candle Warehouse, which is a candle bar and boutique. This event was one of the highlights of the day! Brayden and Ashley participated in the store’s candle pouring workshop and created their own candles. The owner and staff were extremely friendly and helpful, guiding them through how to measure the wax, blend the ingredients, and insert the wick. They then picked out their scent and jar to pour the candle into. Because Brayden is about to become a father and it was right before Father’s Day weekend, of course they had to pick a dad-themed jar! They spent $35.00 at The Candle Warehouse.
They ended the day with snow cones at Sandlot Sno-Balls. This was the perfect way to cool off and end the day as it started – with a sweet treat! The flavors they decided on were Barbie, which is a mix of strawberry and pink lemonade, and Strawberry Kiwi. Brayden and Ashley took their snow cones to Case Community Park to eat them and relax from their full day of activities. They spent $7.00 at Sandlot
We are so glad Brayden and Ashley made the most of their day and visited five different places in our beautiful town of Sand Springs. It was wonderful to hear about all their activities and the great day they had!
