Magnolia Market in Waco

Today I'm sharing the first part of day 3 of our Texas trip!  If you missed my previous recaps, see day 1 in Houston here and day 2 in San Antonio here!

When we left San Antonio, we were Arlington bound!  Looking at the map before we left on our trip, I noticed that Waco was right off the interstate we'd be traveling on.  I wasn't a big show follower of Chip and Joanna but I knew of them, appreciated their style and wanted to check out Magnolia.  (Since the trip, I read their book and have officially drank the kool-aid ;) )

If there is one thing I noticed about Texas just like my other trips there, it was state pride.  I've never been in a state where more people flew their state flag than Texas.  

We've arrived!

So excited to check it out!

Even Jared had to admit this place was pretty cool!

We were there on a Saturday so there was a pretty good crowd of people hanging out on the lawn and eating off the food trucks.  We only had a very small amount of time to stop before we had to be in Arlington so I just tried to take it in as much as I could at a fast pace!

Loved this little display outside of the market!

I was impressed with the things they had for sale but this place was PACKED.   I had my eye on a few things (this bracelet, this tee and this sign) but decided to skip the forever long checkout line and will just order them online when I decide I'm ready!

They have to make a killing off this shop because everybody passing me on their way out were carrying large bags full of stuff!

We really enjoyed our visit!

After reading the book, I appreciate this Magnolia sign!

I loved the food truck & picnic atmosphere!

We may not have been able to stay long but we were able to check out the whole grounds and really enjoy the feel of Magnolia.  If you're in the area, I would highly recommend a visit to check it out!  We were told the crowds during the week were so much lighter so if you can visit on a weekday I would probably do that so the market itself wouldn't be so crowded.

Arlington bound!!

Tomorrow I'll be back to share our AT&T Stadium Tour of the Dallas Cowboys!
