Weekend Trip to Amish Country with my BFF

Bonnie Miller:

My BFF and I went to Amish Country, Pennsylvania this past weekend.  We’d been planning this trip for years and have never been able to go so we decided this year was it.  We had a ton of fun.  We drove around Lancaster, Bird-in-hand, Intercourse, Strasburg, Nickel Mines, and more.  We went to Amish farms/shops, markets, tons of shops and lots of gardening shops too.

One place we stopped off was an Amish homestead where they sold homemade Root Beer.  I’d been here before when my husband ran in the Amish half marathon a few years ago.  I knew this place was awesome.

We also went to several Amish shops.  This one here is a quilt shop.  So many beautiful quilts.  My BFF ended up buying 2 different large wall hangings from 2 different Amish shops.

I bought a small Amish handmade wall hanging from one Old Order shop.  The Amish man was very nice.

I got the Fried Chicken dinner.  It was so good.  For dessert I got a Chocolate Chip Whoopie pie and it was AMAZING!!!!!  No picture of that because well it was so good and I gobbled it up so fast.

At one quilt shop I picked up this Chicken/Rooster eye glass holder.  It was so cute and I had to have it.  I might use it for a pen/highlighter holder for my purse.

We drove around looking for covered bridges.  We found maybe 5?  Of course, most of them you aren’t allowed to travel on anymore because they are falling apart.  They are still cool to see and they reminded us of the movie Beetlejuice.  🙂

One day,  for lunch we wanted a delicious Amish homemade meal and we went to Katie’s Kitchen that was recommended to us by an Amish lady.  Katie’s Kitchen, was an authentic Amish restaurant.  We both got the roast beef and noodles.  This was just a half plate.  Soooooo good.

We had a ton of fun and we are already thinking of where the next place is that we are going to go to.
