Waco Trip - Going To The Magnolia Store & More!

Friday, May 31, 2019
Last Tuesday J, my mom, my grandma, and I all drove down to Waco, Texas! We packed up my car and left at about 7 or 8 in the morning. We were going down to Waco because J was singing in the semi finals of the Country Showdown. He didn't win this time, but that was okay because he did really good! And it was so much fun cheering him on! But he was singing on Thursday, so that meant on Wednesday we had some free time to go check out The Silos! And the Magnolia Store!! 

It was actually pretty easy getting to the Silos. Driving in Waco wasn't bad. It wasn't terribly busy. Of course we were there on a week day, so a weekend might be different! Parking wasn't too bad either. We were able to park in the free parking lot right next to everything. It is a gravel lot, and they were also doing some construction in the lot while we were there. The gravel lot is free. There is other parking around the area but some of the other parking areas aren't free. 

When you first walk in, you see all the different kinds of food trucks. Which was so cool! J got a lavender lemonade from the Magnolia food truck and I got a tea from The Alabama Sweet Tea truck. The tea came in a mason jar which I thought was really cute! They had a lot of different food trucks. They had a grilled cheese food truck, and it smelled amazing!! I didn't try it because of my dairy problems, but it sure smelled really yummy! 

At the silos they have a little fake grass area. You can sit there and just hang out, and they also have a spot where you can play corn hole. And they have a covered area where you can sit and eat. It was just really cool to sit there and see everyone having a great time, just hanging out and enjoying good food! 

We saw this painted on the side of the bakery, and just had to take a picture in front of it! 

This picture was taken inside the Magnolia Store! I took quite a few pictures in the store. I just thought the kitchen setup was so cute! The store was pretty busy, even for a weekday. There were so many cute items, so many things that if we had our own house I would definitely have gotten them! Part of the store is air conditioned and part of it is not. Where they have all the t-shirts and stuff like that for sale, is not air conditioned. 

After we left the store, we went to the bakery! There was a wait for the bakery, but it wasn't too bad. And the place where you stand in line, is covered by a tent so it's not too hot. So when you go into the bakery, you get a card to mark what you want just to keep everything moving smoothly. I just thought the bakery was so cute! 

And of course we had to get cupcakes! 😊

After the bakery, we went and checked out the garden seed shop. It was really cute there too! There were cute planters and you could actually buy garden seeds. I think they had succulents for sale there too. 

And then on Thursday, like I mentioned we did go and cheer J on for the semi-finals of the Country Showdown! It was a lot of fun. Got to do lots of dancing! Even though J didn't win, we still had a good time. 

So that was our Waco trip! It was such a fun time! I would definitely like to go back at some point, maybe when J and I have our own house. That way I can actually buy things to decorate my home with! And also to check out more shops in the area! We checked out some, but there were a lot more that we didn't get to go to. 

Hope you guys are having a great Friday!

1. Wedding planning has taken over here! We've also set a wedding date! I don't think I will announce the wedding date on the blog just yet. Or at all. Not sure. Is that sharing too much? But I will definitely share bits and pieces of the wedding planning process here on the blog. I'm so excited!! 💕

2. I'm trying to get outside as much as I can to get a tan. I wanted to have a little tan for my birthday, but I'm not sure if I'll have much of a tan. I may just end up getting a spray tan or something. But spray tans are always kind of scary, because I don't want to look orange! 😳😂 

3. I've been really into ASMR videos. I know that some people find them weird, but for me they help me relax and help with my anxiety. I really like Gwen Gwiz and Sophia Chang's ASMR videos. 

4. We get to do some traveling towards the end of the month and I'm pretty excited about it! Not going to announce it here on the blog just yet, but I will definitely have to do a whole post on where we go! It's just that exciting haha!! 

5. I've had a lot of coffee today. Like I feel like I could run a marathon right now! 😂

Hope you guys have a great Friday and a great weekend!

Friday Rambles!

Friday, May 03, 2019

I can't believe it's already Friday! Where did this week go?! Last weekend was such a busy weekend, I feel like I've spent most of the week just catching up on stuff. Mostly laundry. 😂 Thursday we went to a three day music festival in Iowa. We got to stay at the lake in our new camper, which was super exciting! The new camper is SO NICE! It's just really nice to have a bathroom in the camper, and not have to walk like five miles to the bathroom. And to actually be able to shower in our own shower, and not have to use the public shower. 

Anyway, the lake is really pretty! It is one of my favorite places that we've camped. So we went up there on Thursday to just get settled in for the weekend. Friday was the first show of the weekend. J also released a new album!! And then he did two shows on Saturday, and one on Sunday. The shows were a lot of fun! I did take pictures but I feel weird posting them here on the blog. I don't know why haha. 😂 

So we ended up staying until Monday, instead of driving home on Sunday. It was just so cold and rainy on Sunday, we really didn't want to mess with hooking up the camper and driving home in the rain. On Monday morning we met up with a couple of friends for breakfast. We went to a super cute local place. I got a yummy cappuccino! I also got bacon and hashbrowns for breakfast. 

Oh and also on Sunday, we went to a memorial dance for a musician friend of ours. He passed away a few months ago. The band that he was apart of sang songs, and a lot of different musicians played. It was a fun and sad time all at once. I took this pic on our way there. I was hoping to have a cute pic, but then J ended up making this weird face haha 😂 A friend of ours also took pictures of us dancing, but I haven't seen them yet. I wish I had them to post here! Once I get them, I'll try to post them somewhere! 

So yeah, Monday we headed back home. We had to figure out what the heck we were gonna do with our camper, because it rained like two inches at home. We did find a spot to park it at home though! Eventually we want to build a garage for it but it's going to be kind of pricey to build one. I don't normally post pictures of me without makeup but lately I've just been loving not wearing makeup. I also really liked my hair with my hat. I just felt really good and wanted to post this selfie! 😊

So that was my weekend! This week has just been spent catching up on stuff from the weekend. Bella got a super cute birthday card from Chewy in the mail. Her birthday is tomorrow. I can't believe she's going to be two!! I posted a picture of the card on my Instagram Story yesterday. 

I hope you guys have had a great week! And I hope you have a great weekend!

XOXO, Chelsea
