I am so excited about today's post because I get to share all about our SILOBRATION weekend with you and i'm telling you - it was by far one of the best weekends I've ever had.
In the past couple of days I have drank more sweet tea than I’ve ever drank in my life, ate cupcakes for breakfast, took more pictures than I’d care to admit, met some pretty cool people, listened to amazing music, spent A LOT of money and fell even more in love with Chip & Joanna Gaines.
This weekend was one for the books - let's recap, shall we?
- Our group for this weekend -
My parents came from Colorado - (905 miles)
Taylor's mom came from Washington - (2,106 miles)
Taylor & I came from Austin - (102 miles)
What better way to start the day than with cupcakes for breakfast #i'venevermetacupcakeIdidn'tlike
After we got our cupcakes we went straight to the shop and as you can tell we did some damage . . . and y'all this was only day one!
Meanwhile when us girls were shopping #blesstheboyshearts
Oh so pretty!
Love this place - you've done good, Chip & Jo!
We headed on out to see the Magnolia House and it is so beautiful - we had the opportunity to meet the man who runs the B&B and that actually lives next door to it and he was just the sweetest.
While we were out & about we made at stop at Harp Design Co. and we got to see the house that Chip & Jo renovated for Clint & Kelly plus their little shop and we loved it!
And then we called it a day and decided to pamper ourselves a little bit.
- Day 2 -
We started off our second day in Waco with some yummy coffee at Common Grounds!
Here we are back at the Silos!
And you guys, this sweet tea . . . SO YUMMY! I seriously drank so much.
Dear Alabama Sweet Tea, you make the yummiest sweet tea, it's a good thing I don't live close to you. Love, Emilee.
Oh hey there JIMMY DON!
This guy is the real deal - so down to earth, friendly, humble and wildly talented. It was an honor to meet him.
You need to go & check out his store here!
Speaking of meeting people, i'd like to introduce you to Theresa - Joanna's sister.
And while we're at it I'd also like to introduce you to Joanna's mom - Nan.
I loved her parents. I actually didn't get much of an opportunity to talk to Joanna's mom, but I did get to talk with Joanna's dad, Jerry, for a quite a bit and he is just the nicest, down to earth guy.
I am hear to tell you that these people, this family, they are the real deal. I think out of the entire weekend my conversation with her dad was one of the highlights of the entire trip.
Don't mind me, just drinking more sweet tea and getting more cupcakes with my mama.
We took full advantage of all of the photo ops!
Getting ready for the show to start!!!
Jon Foreman opened for JohnnySwim & he was fantastic! For those who don't know, he is the lead singer of Switchfoot - he played some our favorite songs, Dare You To Move & Only Hope!
The Silos & lights - so magical!!
Hello, CHIP & JOANNA GAINES!
These two weren't afraid to dream BIG and it was so special to hear them talk about this God sized dream and experience this amazing thing that they've created.
- We love you Chip & Joanna Gaines -
Johnnyswim was AMAZING - I liked their music before, but since this weekend they're all I have listened to. If you haven't listened to their music, you need to do it now. You can thank me later ;)
Magnolia, you've stolen my heart.
