Exploring Magnolia Market + The Silos

Hands down, the thing that I was most excited about when going to Austin was our road trip to Waco, Texas.

Were we being all kinds of basic by going to Waco? You bet. Did we care? Not one single bit! I have loved everything Fixer Upper, Chip, & Jo since the day I first saw the show and have always wanted to go and see the Silos in person.

We woke up bright and early on Friday morning last week, got on the road, and we were at Magnolia Market just after 9am when they opened. It was a chilly morning and since it wasn't the weekend, it wasn't crazy crowded.

First stop: the Bakery.

I ordered a Shiplap cupcake, a classic sugar cookie, and the Prize Pig {a cheddar + bacon biscuit}. All of them were delicious! The best part was not having to wait in a crazy long line... we were probably 15-20 people back in line and were able to wait inside the entire time instead of in a line wrapped around the building like we saw later when we were leaving.

Next up was our #milestomagnolia picture. Once again, there was no line because it was so early and on a weekday rather than the weekend.

We spent quite a bit of time wandering around the shop. It was beautifully set up and you could see the care and thought that went into each and every part of the store. I love a well organized store. We all ended up making a few purchases while we were there... I did my best not to go overboard.

We walked through their garden area, made a quick stop in the Magnolia Seed + Supply shop, and then grabbed lunch from the food trucks on site.

I could have spent all day sitting at the picnic table and people watching.


Seriously, I could have sat there alllllll day long.

It was the perfect day at the Silos! The only thing that could have made it better would have been a Chip or Jojo sighting, but I guess you can't have everything.

We did make a pit stop at Harp Design Co on our way out of town to check another item off of our Fixer Upper bucket list.

Now, if you don't mind me, I'm off to pick up my copy of A Magnolia Story for a quick re-read while I wait on my copy of Capital Gaines to arrive... the first two books of our newly-formed book club at work are appropriate reads after our visit to Waco, TX. If you ever have the chance to visit Magnolia Market, fan of Fixer Upper or not, you need to go. It is 100% worth the visit!

  3. I'd love to visit!! It's so great that they've been able to make a tourist attraction in their town. I'd love to see such a beautiful place pop up in my hometown.
    I totally relate to loving to sit outside and people watch-it's one of my favorite things to do!

  4. I’m so glad that you enjoyed your time at the Silos! I’m pretty sure that I had that biscuit too and I remember it being delicious!
