Blake Shelton and Gwen Stefani kicked off the Fourth of July weekend at a very interesting location; they were photographed standing on the balcony of Miranda Lambert’s old bed and breakfast, The Ladysmith.
Shefani fans will be delighted to learn that Gwen and Blake have reunited, and it looks like the couple will be spending the long holiday weekend at Blake’s home near Tishomingo, Oklahoma. On Saturday, a few lucky residents of the town spotted Blake Shelton and Gwen Stefani together at the building that used to be Miranda Lambert’s bed and breakfast. In a Facebook photo taken by a fan, Gwen can be seen leaning against the wrought-iron railing of the building’s second story balcony. She’s wearing a chic green sundress, and Blake is standing beside her all decked out in black. A group of five other people are with them. It’s unclear what the group is doing there.
Some Shefani fans are speculating that Gwen and Blake were in town to watch the Tishomingo Fourth of July parade. According to KXII News 12, the parade took place on Saturday morning, and there was a fireworks show in the evening.
The website for The Ladysmith says that it is closed and under new management, so Gwen and Blake’s appearance at Miranda Lambert’s old B&B building could be evidence that it’s another Tishomingo property that Blake Shelton has decided to buy. As Entertainment Tonight reports, Blake previously revealed that he had purchased the building across the street that housed his ex-wife’s Pink Pistol boutique. Blake teased that he has a plan “brewing” for the property, which could mean that its future involves beer.
“As a resident of Tishomingo I’m very sorry that the Pink Pistol has decided to move its operations out of the area,” Shelton said. “We all, as a community, appreciate everything it has done for our town. As for the actual properties left behind… I was offered the opportunity to buy them, and I have a plan brewing.”

Now that Miranda and Blake are divorced, the “Little Red Wagon” singer is seemingly cutting all ties with the small city that she once called home. However, it appears that Blake Shelton is going to make sure that Miranda Lambert’s old buildings don’t remain empty, and he’s also snapped up at least one other Tishomingo property that his ex didn’t own. As People reports, he purchased an old dentist’s office and transformed it into a dive bar for his “She’s Got a Way with Words” music video.
There’s no word on what Blake Shelton plans on doing with the music video set now or whether Gwen Stefani is involved in his plans for his many Tishomingo properties, but residents of the town of 3,000 might be relieved to know that he’s doing something with them. According to the Fort Worth Star-Telegram, the building that became The Ladysmith “sat mostly vacant for about 70 years” before Miranda Lambert transformed it into a B&B. The Ladysmith’s former innkeeper told the Star-Telegram that Tishomingo was “kind of a dying town” before Miranda opened up her businesses.

Gwen Stefani may eventually leave her own mark on Tishomingo. She’s visited the town multiple times with Blake Shelton, and it seems to be growing on her. According to People, Gwen and Blake have been spotted eating at Tishomingo’s popular Gonzalez Mexican restaurant, and they’ve enjoyed ice cream from the local Dairy Queen. However, they spend a lot of of their time together on Blake’s sprawling, wooded property outside of town.

Gwen has even taken her three sons—10-year-old Kingston, 7-year-old Zuma, and 2-year-old Apollo—to Tishomingo on multiple occasions, and Blake seems to be bonding with the boys. One Tishomingo resident told NonDoc that she saw Blake give the kids quarters to spend on toy machines during one of their Dairy Queen visits. Gwen posed for a photo with the lucky fan, and the couple chatted with her for a little while.
What do you think Blake Shelton will do with his Tishomingo properties? And do you think Gwen Stefani will be involved in any way? Sound off below!
