A Day at the Magnolia Market and Silos

Hey Babes!

I hope you are all having a fantastic Saturday, speaking of Saturdays, last Saturday I got to spend the day exploring the Magnolia Market and Silos. If you have no idea what I'm talking about(don't feel bad I didn't either until my mom explained it to me on the way there :P) Here is a little background. Chip and Joanna Gaines from the show Fixer Upper( read more about them here Fixer Upper) opened the Market and Silos in Waco, Texas, after Joanna had dreamt about it for years. You can read the entire story of how it happened here, About Magnolia Market and Silos. Now lets get into my visit!

When you first walk in you are surrounded by the most delicious looking food trucks(to clarify the food looks delicious not the trucks :P). They all look so amazing it's basically impossible to decide what to try first. I also LOVE the cute benches with umbrellas for eating your awesome food truck goodies.

Next to the food truck there is a fun area where you can play or lounge in bean bags and just relax. It would definitely be awesome for little kids!

From there I headed to the Garden. I absolutely loved this spot! It was filled with gorgeous flowers and the garden shop has too many fun knick knacks inside. Also, shoutout to the super nice guy who took my Mom and I's picture so she could finally be in one of them ;)

There are basically just perfect photo-op opportunities all over the place. Just across from the garden is this adorable sink to wash your hands and this cute old time-y truck.

Making my way closer towards the actual market I spotted a freaking hashtag sign that everyone was getting pictures with so naturally I did too, plus the Instagrammer in me couldn't resist a good hashtag picture ;)

Right next to the sign were the cutest white umbrellas! I didn't know at first but they are actually for you to use during your visit to stay out of the sun. It's the most adorable thing ever am I right!?

Finally I had made it to the market and headed inside to see what all the fuss was about. After looking around I could definitely see why people loved it! The decorations and home goods were all so flipping cute.  And if you're a fan of the show it makes even more fun I imagine.

I didn't actually make it into the bakery because it was SO hot and I just couldn't take the long line. I have heard from SO many people that everything in there is scrumptious though. On my way out I noticed that there is actually a shuttle to bring you up to the entrance and it is cute as hell.

If you are ever in Waco, Texas, I would definitely pop by and check this adorable spot out! Chip and Joanna have definitely brought something really fun to Waco and I am so glad I finally got the chance to explore it! Big thanks to my Mom for having the idea and getting me to do it :P

First Pair of Pointe Shoes!

I finally got my Pointe Shoes you guys and I am so FREAKING excited!!! I have been doing Ballet for about 3 years now and I have been working towards my pointe shoes SO hard so when my teacher told me I was ready I died! I couldn't wait to get them and start working with them. About two days ago I went and got fitted. I wish I would've got pictures in the shop but I was so excited I forgot, I did get a pic after though in the care04f6e1c-b7ba-4d14-a2d2-a3b6085fe309

Getting fitted was super easy because the lady almost got it right the first pair of shoes so it didn't take long at all.

I had class that night so my teacher was going to show me how to sew them up and make sure they were a proper fit and all that. Thankfully one of the other teachers who works at the studio offered to sew my first pair for me and I will forever love her because I so had no idea what I was doing :Pimg_1906

She is honestly the BEST!

I will be able to use them in class next week hopefully and I am SO pumped. They look so great and I am absolutely obsessed with them252d99e7-33c1-4292-9aa6-fff6085691e0

In case you guys are wondering I got them from Bloch and they are a size 5.5! Super comfy(for a pointe shoe) and I got some really nice gel padding for my toes.

If any of you guys dance I would love to hear about your first time getting your shoes! Don't forget to check out my last post~Miss Me Jeans Photoshoot~ and you can also find me on all the following social media so feel free to stalk me ;)
