“If Hannah and French doors had a baby, it would be shiplap.”

Now, I know Chip may have said this about Joanna, but I like to think that her and I are one and the same…especially since I’m in the middle of renovating my house and it is decked out in Magnolia Market treats and the Hearth and Hand collection. I really, just, live for it!

I went to the Magnolia Silos on a whim in September but this time I really got to enjoy it in all its shiplap glory.

My biggest recommendation is to go during the week – there was parking, no crazy lines and the perfect amount of space to breathe it all in.

I’ve been reading and watching and soaking in a lot of inspiration from HGTV over the past few months. I hate the term relationship goals but Chip and Jo give me a standard that can only be beat by Pam and Jim. My second favorite lady is Erin Loechner. As I was headed to Waco, I finished reading her book Chasing Slow and it’s probably one of the best reads out there. It’s incredibly humbling, light-hearted and realistic.

I love that. I love people that make me sit there and go yeah, that’s attainable. We can’t all be Kardashians. No one, and I mean no one, will ever be as perfect as Jennifer Anniston and no one has it together quite like Oprah.

So, when I see couples and people who are relatable and realistic, I latch on. I am an avid HGTV watcher because there’s something so incredibly average about it. And not in a bad way. There’s something about these people that fill my screen that make redoing a house on a budget while drinking corner store coffee and having three-day unwashed hair seem normal and acceptable.

I recommend going to the Silos Bakery (not pictured) and getting a shiplap cupcake and then moseying on over to the Magnolia Market where you will undoubtedly spend your entire year-end bonus on vases and burlap and end the afternoon at a food truck munching down on a bacon-basil-grilled cheese sandwich.

Are you booking a trip as we speak and staying in a quaint little bed-and-breakfast? If so, do you have room for one more?

A special thank-you to our friends in Waco for treating us so well! As always, all opinions are my own.
