Before ending my holiday "break" and before returning back to reality, I took a little road trip to Magnolia Market. I've wanted to go for a while now, and I made official plans after my dear friend closed on her first home in Killeen, TX -- which is about 45 minutes south of Waco. We planned to make a day trip out to the Silos and have a sleepover at her new place. It was well worth the 3 hour drive. And I HATE driving.
I hopped in a 2017 Toyota Camry courtesy of Cowboy Toyota and hit the road.
My friend Christina and I headed to Waco on a Friday morning, and my one of my best friends who was in town from New York, drove up from San Antonio to meet us. The three of of us tackled the Silos together. It wasn't terribly crowded, but the weather kind of sucked. It was cold and pretty cloudy most of the day, but we made the most of it.
I have every intention of visiting again when Texas decides to grace us with some warm, sunny weather.
There were so many cute things throughout the store, but we completely our walk-through in about 30 minutes. My friend Christina and I bought some cotton -- which will make an awesome decor piece once I find the perfect vase for it.
We spotted Joanna's mom when we were checking out and snapped a few creeper photos before my friend Kelli cut the crap and asked her for a pic. She is such a sweetheart. I wished I could take her home with me.
While there was no line to get into the market, there was a short line for the bakery. We decided it would be worth braving the cold to stand in line and I'm glad we did. The lavender cupcake was the literal shit. It was so good. I've been thinking about it ever since.
After Magnolia, we took a short trip to Spice Market. I am IN LOVE with Spice Market. It's a huge space filled with goodies from various vendors. Some handmade, some not. But they have everything from furniture, to stationary, to the cutest glassware. I can't wait to go back.
We ended our day trip at Torchy's Tacos. If you live in within 20 miles of Torchy's and haven't been, fix that. ASAP. I absolutely love Torchy's and I couldn't think of a better way to end our day.
All in all it was an awesome trip. We heard that Chip and Jo tend to visit the Silos after hours to avoid chaos. Next time, I plan to hide out and wait. Just kidding... sorta.
If you happen to be driving through, I would 100% recommend stopping by Magnolia Market. It's such a cute and well thought-out space and I cannot wait to go back. I'll ride with you!
