Christmas at the Silos + thanks Chip

The day after my school got out for Christmas break my mom and I headed to Waco to visit our favorite place again- Magnolia Market!! This was the first time they had a winter celebration at the Silos so it was a treat to be there, even though it was freezing!!

This place and community in Waco Texas is so special to me and I have so many fun memories there with my mom- if you want to follow along and be the first to see my photos then follow my Magnolia with Grace Instagram.

Magnolia Market

Happy Saturday friends! Earlier this week my mom and I made another day-trip down to Waco,TX to visit our favorite place- Magnolia Market! Chip and Joanna Gaines (the ultimate husband and wife team) own and operate the business and also star in the hit HGTV show “Fixer Upper”  where they flip houses in the central Texas area. Some of my favorite memories are of day/weekend girl trips with my mom. We have visited Magnolia Market several times but every time we go there is something new to enjoy! This time the Magnolia seed shop and bakery were open! We had a great time and took some fun photos for you all to enjoy. Hopefully this might inspire you to make the trip down to visit our favorite place!

2 days in Nashville / Travel Guide 

At the end of May my family and I took a family road trip for a couple of days in Nashville, a week in South Carolina (beach house), and a quick day in New Orleans. It was so fun to go to several different places and experience new things and sites with my family! Nashville was so fun and photogenic, plus the  weather was awesome. We went knowing we had to pack our 2 days full of activities to get the whole Nashville experience in a short amount of time. So I thought since we picked and found the best places to go, I would share the top Nashville sites to see if you have only a short amount of time to visit!

How to: Pack like a pro

After years of family trips, girls weekend getaways with my mom, sleepovers, and just travel in general, I feel like I’ve learned some tricks and tips on how to pack for different occasions and lengths of time. If your like me then you over-pack, I live by the philosophy of “Its better to have it and not need it, then need it and not have it”. But sometimes I have to pack less because of guidelines or space.

I am going to share some of the packing knowledge I’ve learned overtime, what different bags I bring on trips, different packing methods, and how to write a list that will make it impossible to forget things. By the end of this, if you study and practice, you could become a packing pro!
