Have I told you I am from Texas? On a recent trip I was surprised with a trip to Magnolia Market and I am thrilled to share with you all the details of our visit.
Our Trip to Magnolia Market
The hubs and I both have family in Texas. On a recent trip we drove through Waco for a graduation at the college and then Houston for a party. On the way home we didn’t need to go back through Waco but the hubs insisted we go back. I insisted it was out of the way by an hour. I should have known better when he insisted I wear something other than sweats for the trip home and fix my hair. Now don’t get upset thinking the hubs wants me to be dressed up everywhere we go, he just knows me very well. Pictures were take so yes the hair is a must. It’s Texas people, you have to tame the fluff. Anyhow all of a sudden Siri chimed into our argument over directions with “2 hours and 15 minutes to Magnolia Market” and I squealed. This was just the beginning of celebrating our anniversary.
If you’re planning a trip to Magnolia Market make sure you plan on a drive. Flying into Austin or Dallas you will have a 2 hour drive ahead of you. We took smaller highways and enjoyed the drive. Breathe in the air and enjoy all the trees!
Once in the store check out all of the displays. You can get so many ideas for decorating by checking them out. Since I didn’t know about the trip I didn’t make any plans or put any thought as to what I would want. The hubs however found these signs online and planned on getting me to purchase one. I fell in love with them too so we picked up two. I would suggest getting an idea of what you might want to pick up so you don’t end up circling the market 20 times like I did. The store can get crowded making circling hard.
Being the DIYer that I am the hubs knew I would say “Oh I could make this…” and I did. But I did pick out the two signs and a faux plant in a cement planter for my mom. I even had my things carried for me. Talk about an anniversary celebration.
Be sure to make a day of your trip. There’s a lot to do on the city block that is the silos. There’s a turf field and kickballs, you can play some frisbee too. I really mean to make a day of it, check out the food trucks too. We wanted to get back and visit with family so we skipped the trucks but I hope to get taste one day.
