I’m sharing all the good, bad and the ugly with y’all today! Our little trip started last Thursday. We were excited to catch the plane for Waco with much anticipation for finding rental homes to invest in. You see, we have a small investment group and it is our job to find all the homes, fix them up and get them ready to rent. After arriving in Waco, we found our hotel and settled in. (Bonus…we met a really sweet couple from Ohio ~ Bob & Linda. It was fun connecting with them each day to swap stories.) On Friday morning we met our Real Estate Agent bright and early as we began our tour of 18 homes that we had previously targeted to see. Our agent was awesome, but unfortunately the houses…not so much! We only found one that we would even consider which I named “The Magnolia Tree” house, and one is not enough to adventure to Waco. However, I’m sure if we lived there and/or had a higher budget for each purchase we could have found plenty.Just in case you are wondering, this little cutie was just $47,000 with the original hardwood floors. However, the kitchen was a complete gut. The refrigerator is currently sitting in the dining room. And we would have had to add a laundry room plus all new plumbing. I wish we could have found more like this one. We were a little disappointed but decided to make the best of our trip! I’m sure you know what that means…yep, we found our way to Magnolia Market “The Silos”.Can you guess what’s in the bag? Or, who I got my iced coffee from that I’m holding in my hand?
(Not sure what my hair was doing in this photo. I think God was giving me a halo! Haha!!!)
You got it! I just had to get a #shiplap t-shirt for fun!!! These two were no where to be seen, but they had some awfully nice employees that were eager to help and very friendly!Here’s just a few pictures of what you see inside.
It’s a happening place! Chip & Joanna have done an amazing job. It was a wonderful experience and I’m so happy for them!So…back to the COFFEE I’m holding in my hand in a previous photo, it was made by Common Grounds (one of the food trucks they have on the premises.) Do you remember the cute couple from one of the episodes of Fixer Upper? Well, they don’t run the food truck but we did get to visit with a couple of young men attending Baylor University who work for them. Great guys and we wish them all the best in the coming future!Outside there were lots of families playing games and enjoying the day!More food trucks!
The Garden!A mini replica of the original Magnolia Shop!As we were leaving, we noticed the door was open to the Magnolia Flour that will be opening soon. Of-course my husband had to peek in. You just know it’s going to be beautiful once it’s all completed!!! There was so much to take in. I’m so glad we got the chance to stop by. I think I’ll make this a two part series since there are so many pictures involved. I’ll be back with more of our trip which includes Harp Design Co. and Junque In The Trunck! Plus…what happen to us on our second day in Waco!
See you soon!
