For my birthday, I wanted to cross something off my bucket list. Maybe that’s what you do when you get older. I’m 35 today, and – as my mom kindly put it – I’m half way to 70. So, that’s great. In all seriousness, I have actually loved getting older. Since I met my husband every year has been better than the last. I’ve been blessed with three kids, a wonderful husband and a lifestyle that I feel privileged to live.
So when my brother, mom, sister-in-law and daughter all agreed to drive up from Austin to Waco, TX and spend the day at Magnolia Market, I didn’t pass it up. We bought a lot of great things, got inspired by Joanna’s incredible visual merchandising and stood in line for an hour for one of the most moist and delicious cupcakes that I have ever had! Thank you to my family for making my birthday one to remember.
Here are a few photos from our day at Magnolia Market.
I was taking my brother’s photo when I realized, THEY LOOK JUST LIKE CHIP AND JOANNA. Like, just like them. Am I right?
I’m telling you … these cupcakes were worth the hour wait. Incredibly delicious and the shop inside was so cute. Not to mention that every associate was so nice and helpful. They ask you where you are from and really make you feel like family while you are there. Besides that, they all say “y’all” and to me … that is so dang cute!
Thank you so much to my family for making the trek with me! It was truly a day to remember and I loved every moment of it. I could seriously go back … and back, and back again and see different things each time. If you haven’t been and are on the fence … GO. It’s worth it.
When I told the sales associate it was my birthday, she went into the back room and came back with this, it is called the “Silobration cupcake.” She said, “This is a little treat from Chip and Joanna.” It was so sweet! Literally. This little gesture made my day feel that much more special.
Kelsey found this magnifying glass and would go around telling me how much everything was. She was my little helper.
Thank you to the Gaines family for creating this special place and for living up to my every expectation.
