People & Places


Time Crunch Escape

A highlight of our Lubbock trip was Brandy and Marley’s first escape room visit. Time crunch escapes

offers a variety of visually stunning and detail packed escape rooms perfect for any experience level. Our

visit included the “Explore the Pyramid” room and we were shocked to find something truly macabre!


Cast Iron Grill

Home cookin’ meets classic diner fare. It’s no secret that Lubbock boasts a great assortment of

restaurants. However, if you want to taste pie that is worthy of a president (hint hint), you need to head

on over to Cast Iron Skillet. The owner was incredibly generous and sent us with a full array of slices for

our blind taste test!


American Windmill Museum

We love field trips! And the Windmill Museum did not disappoint. It’s the largest windmill museum in

the world. The sheer size of these behemoths made the visit both magical and a left you a bit in awe.

What was especially fascinating was in the same building as ginormous windmills was a teeny tiny

miniature museum full of every eye candy imaginable. And did we mention the model railway that

spirals to the ceiling and runs overhead? This museum boasts something for everyone!


The Matador

Andy and Marley had plenty to choose from for their Texas Tech inspired basket at the Matador! The

official gameday retailer of Texas Tech athletics! Guns Up!
