Girls Spring Break Getaway to Waco, Texas
If you’ve ever watched an episode of Fixer Upper, you’ve probably gotten to the end of the show thinking, “Can it really be that picture perfect in Waco?” Well, my friends, the answer is YES. This weekend getaway was about as good as it gets. Time with my best friends and exploring all Waco has to offer. Spring break was perfect this year!
First stop: Texas Tulips!
We went straight from the airport to Texas Tulips. The small tulip farm in Pilot, Texas was the perfect backdrop for my first set of pictures. Owen and CJ willingly posed in baskets and gave me the biggest smiles. I will not confirm or deny if their mamas were dancing like fools waving around a container of snacks.
If you go to Waco, Texas and you don’t stop at Torchy’s Tacos— you made a mistake. This is my favorite taco spot in Texas. Their Queso is killer and they have the tastiest tacos you ever did eat. The tables are just the right size for endless baskets of chips and a game or two of spades.
Clayton loved pointing at everything on this trip!
We made sure to hit a few antique shops and vintage markets while we were there. The best finds came from the Cedar Chest in McGregor, Texas.
Nothing makes this girl happier than finding the perfect vintage book and toast separator.
We indeed had some great finds this day.
Magnolia, sweet Magnolia! Every detail was perfect! White brick, vintage trucks, flowers, and the perfect spot to take a picture everywhere you looked. Chip and Joanna have thought of everything. It was so fun to see the silos in person again and see how much has changed since the last time Andrew and I visited. The biggest addition to Magnolia is Magnolia Table. After a short wait we sat down at the perfect table. The food was everything we expected and then some. If you are wondering how much I really loved my pancakes, just take a look here. 😉
The Silos Baking Co. established in 2016.
One of my favorite photo spots!
Although it was Sunday, we decided to pop by Magnolia anyways to get these photos while no one would be there! So glad we did this!
What a big boy! Holding himself up at just 11 months! Don’t worry guys mom was very close by. 😉
Brooke is always amazing at capturing photos of me! Thanks for these, friend!
Clayton was apparently mesmerized by all that Waco charm. That or he secretly had a leaf in his mouth pretty much the entire time we were there…
Clayton: “I think I should probably tell mom about my new chew toy.”
Brooke: “What do you have in your mouth kid? Is that a leaf? Oh, It is.”
Three words: Steel. City. Pops. The best popsicles this side of the Mississippi! You can’t go wrong with coconut dipped in dark chocolate or pineapple. Owen and CJ couldn’t agree more.
Monday was my favorite day in Waco because it was filled to the brim with Magnolia!
Started the morning off with breakfast at the new Magnolia Table! It was amazing!!
Everything was picture perfect and tasted delightful.
After breakfast, we stopped by a well known Waco park to capture a few portraits of Emily and her husband Caleb.
After our quick session we headed over to Magnolia Market again! 🙂
Then it was time for some shopping!
I LOVED this green Jeep!
After a wonderful time at Magnolia Market it was time for a sweet treat–Heritage Creamery, a local ice cream shop!
How cool is their ice cream van!?
They have amazing flavors like Honey Lavendar.
Then we walked next door to grab some coffee at Common Grounds!
Lucy, was a little suspicious of what we were up to next…
That evening we did our last photo-shoot of the boys!
And as you can see it was too cute for words!
We spent our last day in Waco enjoying Emily’s homemade pancakes and a scenic walk before heading to the airport. It was such a wonderful trip from beginning to end!
Till next time Waco!
