Waco was one of my only requests for places to stop on our road trip. Simply because it's the home of Magnolia Market, made famous by one of my favorite HGTV shows, Fixer Upper. It's only an hour north of Austin and was on the way to Oklahoma City, which was our next stop.
I have to say, it was everything I hoped it would be minus meeting Chip and Joanna Gaines in person. There is a bakery, a giant store full of things, curated by Joanna Gaines, and outside there's a courtyard lined with local food trucks. One downside is that it's become a huge tourist attraction so there were tons and tons of people. I picked up a couple Magnolia candles, then we ate lunch and went on our merry way. I was quite the happy camper!
