Ever heard of a little show called Fixer Upper? We have, and we're obsessed. This weekend, we made a quick trip to visit Chip and Joanna Gaines (#relationshipgoals) at the Magnolia Market & Silos in Waco. We've never explored Waco other than the typical stop at Collin Street Bakery on our way up to Dallas, but this day trip is about an hour and twenty minutes north of Austin and worth every minute! The Magnolia Silos has a little something for everyone - the market for shopping, a food truck park, lawn games (perfect for kids), a fresh flower, herb, and vegetable garden, and a brand new bakery! Y'all, the Gaines family knows what they're doing!
We spent our Saturday morning perusing all of the home decor items in the market (so much to look at, so little time!) and checking out a few of the food trucks with the rest of the fans from out of town. To us, Magnolia Market is a cross between Pottery Barn + Anthropologie. Everything was super cute and very trendy, and we picked up a few gold/turquoise Anthropologie-esque vases, adorable Magnolia kitchen towels (each had a different vegetable on them), and a few rustic-chic outdoor pots and silver tins for our plants (only two because we both have black thumbs and sadly kill almost every plant we own). We suggest eating at Milo Biscuit Company for their array of southern breakfast items and vegetarian options. We ordered the Hungry Heart Burger topped with a sweet tomato jam and a fried egg, the True American biscuit sandwich, and a side of the southern Smoked Gouda Grits (if grits are on the menu, we never fail to order!). It was also an insanely hot 102 degrees out, so we grabbed a few fresh, cold-pressed juices at Luna Juice Bar (try the summer delite - watermelon, pineapple & mint, so refreshing!) to cool off.
Needless to say, we left Magnolia with a hand full of home accessories, and a mind full of design goals. We never knew Wacky Waco had much to offer (please excuse us, we're Longhorns and Tigers), but Chip and Joanna sure are makin' moves to create a new culture worth exploring!
