Last weekend some girlfriends and I loaded up early Saturday morning and drove Southbound 35 for a day of shopping and eating our way through Waco. Unless you’re living under a rock, you know that Waco is home to all things Chip and Joanna Gaines – Magnolia everything! It was fun to get away with my girlfriends for the weekend, laugh about silly stuff, eat so much good food and just enjoy a little time away. So, we began our weekend in Waco!
Our first stop was Magnolia Table. We had heard that the wait was upwards of two hours so, we tried to get there early enough to avoid such a wait. We arrived about 10am and the wait was about 2 1/2 hours at that point! So, we used the restroom, looked around in the gift shop/take away location, took some pictures and moved onto Magnolia Market.
Our next stop was Magnolia Market. We expected it to be packed, which it was but, not too overwhelmingly packed. We stopped outside the front gate and the sweetest employee took some pictures for us. Then we made our way into the store where I wanted one of just about everything! After checking out the Seed & Garden area, we moved down the road to The Findery.
Leaving The Findery we had to make a run for it to the car as it was really starting to rain and of course we only had one umbrella between the four of us girls. Go figure! Once we got back to the car we made our way to lunch…. Our first stop was La Familia which turned out to be a hole in the wall that was so packed we couldn’t even walk in the door. It did however smell really good… so, there’s that! Our 2nd stop for lunch was Ninfa’s which is conveniently located just downstairs from Spice Village.
We shopped around at Spice Village, which is a collection of shops with clothing, home decor, gifts, etc. After we left Spice Village we headed over to Harp Design Co. It was really cool to see all of their stuff first-hand and see the house next door that Clint & Kelly bought and Chip & Joanna fixed up.
We had shopped off some of our lunch so, we went back to The Silos and got in line for the bakery. It was a 45 minute wait but, we had the time and the line actually moved along quite quickly. Plus the cupcakes proved to be worth the wait!
Afterwards we made our way to The Dutch Door Guest House…. the cutest little guest house cottage. Once we arrived we unpacked, kicked back and just chit-chatted for a while before dinner. Autumne was so nice – came to check on us after we arrived and made sure we knew where everything was. The cottage was very clean, inviting and we’ll certainly stay again! For dinner we ventured over to Moroso’s Wood Fired Pizza. I had seen many rave reviews online about Moroso’s and it too did not disappoint! Sunday morning before we left for home we made one last stop for brunch at the Waco Hippodrome. I had seen a handful of reviews for the Hippodrome and while the food did not disappoint, the atmosphere was so cool! If you’re ever in Waco, I suggest definitely stopping by the Hippodrome.
I’m not sure if we ate or shopped more while in Waco but, one thing we all agree on is that we had a lot of fun. It was nice to get away with girlfriends to laugh and have fun together while shopping and eating our way through Waco.
