Today, Sophia and I continued to explore Texas. I was born here, and spent the first 11 years of my life here. I've always felt drawn back to Texas, and despite the fact that I've spent significantly more time in Missouri, I still consider Texas to be my home.
We began the day with some shopping at my daughter's favorite store, Nordstrom. After that, we visited Magnolia Market in Waco. I've seen the show Fixer Upper a few times, but don't consider myself a fan. I know several people who have been to the market, and every one of them has said that I should go. So, I went. I didn't really know what to expect, and what I saw was a shocker. There were about 2,000 people there, and it seemed like everyone was a tourist.
After Waco, we headed to San Marcos. There is a old diner there, Gil's Broiler, that sells the most delicious cinnamon rolls on the face of the planet! They are called Manske Rolls, and are named after the creator who baked them in the 1920s. As you know, I don't paticulary like baked goods. However, I LOVE Manske Rolls! Sophia and I had one each and purchased some to take back to Missouri.
Next, we drove to La Grange, TX. We rented an apartment in their downtown for two nights while we are here for the music festival. The apartment is so cute, and reminds me of an old apartment I rented for a few years on Webb City Main St.! Adorable! It's great to be home!
