Like half the population of 30-something year old women – I’ve been fostering my love for Joanna Gaines for some time now. It hit its peek right around the time when we moved back home to Texas and started living out our “Fixer Upper” dreams. I’d like to think if JG ever strolled past our little Murray cottage – she’d give me a wink and a thumbs up ? So naturally, the sweet hubs that I have has been scheming a trip to Magnolia Market at the Silos for the past couple of years. The first time we tried, it was for my bday when Cha Cha was a mere 3 months old, so that was out. The second time we were coming back from our quick trip to Great Wolf Lodge in Grapevine, but unfortunately they were closed on Sunday ? So third time’s a charm and as luck would have it, we made it back early enough from our July 4th Virginia trip (which I’ll be blogging about soon!), and were able to swing by the Silos with the kiddos earlier this week ? Just for fun, I thought I’d round up a quick guide if you’re planning a visit to the Magnolia Silos in Waco – hope it helps!
Guide to Visiting Magnolia Market at the Silos
To say it was love at first sight is a complete understatement. The moment I laid eyes on those Silos looming above the rooftops from a mile away, I immediately started giggling like a school girl. I swear Grant hasn’t seen me that happy since our wedding day or the day we brought our babies home for the first time. See, you thought I was kidding. I’m obsessed y’all, lol. We weren’t sure if it was the 90+ degree heat or that we’d gotten there only an hour or so before it closed, but it was surprisingly not packed. The kids ran around the lawn in front of the Silos until they were red in the face. Then Garrett’s “snow cone radar” was activated by a cute little vendor, Summer Snow, so we all plopped down at one of the picnic tables in the shade to cool off before heading over to Magnolia Market.
