Day Trip to The Silos

January 2017

January has brought with it less stress and returning our home back to normal. Actually, we just took down all our Christmas decos last Monday…but who’s keeping tabs. ūüėČ It’s nice to have the house back to its normal self. Everything is back to being clean, orderly and organized. We are getting back to our normal routines and I am finally getting this post up. I have been meaning to update the blog with our quick day trip but to be honest when I’ve had free time, I’ve been taking that time to read, rest and rejuvenate. It’s been blissful. Now on to the deets of our trip!

Christmas break was quickly coming to an end. We were in the final days of our break and we woke up one morning and decided to take an impromptu road trip to Waco, Texas to go see Magnolia Market at the Silos (and were hoping to catch a glimpse of Chip & Joanna!). Like many of you, we are huge fans of the show “Fixer Upper”. ¬†We haven’t been¬†and it has been on our to-do list for quite some time.

It was a beautiful, unseasonably warm day in December. Colt filled the tank up with gas, packed some snacks and we were ready to head off to Waco. Adventuring is our¬†favorite! We were anticipating all the sights the Silos had to offer. When we arrived, we didn’t have to park too far away and we eagerly walked hand in hand up to the entrance.

It was incredible how many people were there on a weekday. Everyone was so friendly and kind. Someone was even sweet enough to offer to take our picture for us!

I loved that all the Christmas decorations were still out. It made the grounds that much more festive. It was such pleasant weather to walk around, sight see and enjoy the outdoors. Everything was just so quaint, pretty and perfect!

We checked out the Seed Supply Store, as well as, the greenhouse. It made me want to buy up all the flowers, herbs and seeds and plant it all. I really wish I had a greener thumb than what I have. I hope this spring I have more time to garden.

How do I grow my own vegetables and herbs?! I would love to be able to do that. Also, seems like a lot more work than I care about taking on right now. Maybe someday! Plant lady goals.

After the seed supply store, we walked over and checked out all the food trucks. When Colt used to live in San Antonio, I would go visit him and one of our favorite things to do was to go check out the food trucks and try out different foods. This reminded us of S.A. Food trucks for days. Yum!

It was a bummer this one wasn’t open! Must go back and give it a whirl!¬†

I loved how there were picnic tables for eating, swings for swinging, comfy outdoor chairs and more than enough outdoor games for families and friends to play. Such a warm and welcoming atmosphere.

Finally, it was time to head in and check out Magnolia Market! Give me all the cotton stems and milk glass vases!

I had heard from several people, that many of the items were overly priced. Now that I have seen it with my own eyes, yes, lots of items were pricey. I was looking at a wreath when I overhead the gentleman next to me tell his wife, “This stuff is expensive. We can go get the exact same thing at Hobby Lobby!” Which is probably true. Hah. We still bought a few things… “when in Rome…” right?!

After a long while of shopping, perusing and looking at every.single.thing. We decided it was time to head out for a delicious treat! Off we headed to the bakery building. Lots of people must’ve had the same idea because the line was wrapped along side the building! We were willing to wait. We weren’t leaving without a sweet treat!

So many treats sold out!!!!

These window boxes though!!!

The wait wasn’t too bad. It was about 15 minutes before we were able to go inside. Once inside there were cupcakes for days! Cupcakes are life!!!!!

We paid for our treats and headed outside to enjoy these tiny pieces of heaven and sit at the cutest bistro table together. Colt ordered a chocolate chip cookie and I ordered a lemon lavender cupcake!

Seriously the BEST and tastiest cupcake I’ve had in a long while! Sharing a lemon lavender cupcake, on a December evening, with my handsome husband, was the cherry on top of an already perfect day.

This was a great day filled all my favorites: shopping, sun, leisure, tasty treats, and most importantly this handsome guy next to me. It was just what we needed before heading back to the hustle and bustle of school and work.

This day was a fairy tale.
