Waco Road Trip

We Were Waco Road Tripping today, home of Fixer Upper's Magnolia Homes. It was totally a last minute decision to go. Daddy got home from his shift this AM, and we were sitting on the porch sipping coffee trying to decide what we wanted to do with the fam today. And since we're all Fixer Upper Fans why not do a Tour De' Waco.
The kiddos were super excited, and I couldn't believe how giddy I was. Forget Hollywood, give me a Texas small town with character and cute shops. We headed straight for Magnolia Store. The kids started squealing when they saw it, and it was sooooooo busy. We managed to look around the store and little warehouse. Found a little piece to bring home, and a Magnolia Homes t-shirt :) We also ventured by the Silos where the new Magnolia Market will be opening this Fall. Do I feel another road trip coming. LOL
We also met Jessica who worked at Magnolia Market, and she was just precious. We visited with her for a bit, and found out that their family wants to start the adoption process for China. They want to bring home two precious little ones. So of course we talked adoption, which is always fun to do. She was the sweetest person, and even snapped a picture of our whole family in front of Magnolia Market.
Next was lunch, so we headed to the famous Viteks BBQ. Joe and Ethan got the Gut Pack, since that is what they are known for. None of us wanted to go on that venture. We kept to the BBQ basics. Ethan thoroughly enjoyed his Gut Pack. It was like a Frito Pie on steroids with Brisket, Sausage, Cheese, Beans, and Nacho Cheese and Jalapenos, and a whole lot of it.
Next we headed to Harp Design Co. and we found out that the house that Jojo and Chip remodeled for them is literally right next store to their shop. Insert kids freaking out because that was one of our favorite episodes. So we casually snapped a picture, and headed into their store. It was darling and the prices were great. We bought a treasure there hand made at Harp, and snatched a tee.
Next stop was Common Grounds Coffee House, because we are Huge Coffee lovers. The coffee blends were so tasty, and it was fun to stop in.
When we left Waco we did some antiquing in a small Texas town on the way home. Ethan and Corbin found treasures there. Our kids love antiquing, and they bring there own money, and barter for the things they want.
It's was a Wonderful Family Fun Family Day.
Our Family Picture, sun shining in our eyes. LOL

My family and I went last month as a last minute decision. The shop was packed, can't wait for them to open the silo. We didn't find the silos (didn't look hard)...but would have loved to find some ofChip the stores around town. I did receive an email from Joanna's blog giving so of her favorite shops in Waco. We were hoping for a glance of JoJo and Chip, but no such luck. Thank you for sharing your day.
