The couple live outside of Pawhuska, Oklahoma on a working ranch. The Food Network star and her husband also share four children together amongst their busy lifestyle. There’s always plenty of work around the ranch, and that’s not even including Drummond’s “Pioneer Woman” empire.
Ree is the star of her own cooking show. In addition, she is an author, blogger, food writer, and photographer. The family also owns a brick-and-mortar store in town called The Pioneer Woman Mercantile. So if that doesn’t paint the picture of a busy woman, we don’t know what does. However, the Drummonds made sure to take some well-deserved time off recently.
The couple went on vacation together to Vail, Colorado recently. It’s clear after coming back to Oklahoma that the “Pioneer Woman” is still in vacation mode. She shared a photo of her and Ladd from their getaway and said her “psyche” is still in Colorado.
“My psyche is still on vacation,” Ree Drummond captioned her Instagram post.
‘Pioneer Woman’ Opens Up on Stress of Balancing Her Career With Her Life
As previously stated, Ree Drummond always seems like she’s on the go. Having such a busy lifestyle can make it difficult to balance your career with your personal life. In a 2017 interview, the mother of four revealed what it’s like to juggle the two to Design & Living.
The humble celebrity knows she’s lucky and counts her blessings. Yet the difficulties of finding that perfect work-life balance is a tall task for anyone. Thankfully Ree takes it all in stride, but she also admitted to the publication that it can be rough at times.
“It’s hard. I do the things that I really enjoy,” Drummond said to Design & Living. “I get a lot done when I love doing it. There are so many things that people are chasing me on a daily basis, and there are lots of loose ends.”
Since Drummond is so busy, she’s finally come to terms with leaving some jobs unfinished at the end of the day. She has to sleep at some point, and can’t just press on each day until every task is completed. But that did take her a while to get used to.
“I just became okay with going to bed at night and not having everything done. My dad used to tease me that I only did what was fun and it’s kind of true still,” the Pioneer Woman shared.
