Now, we had different reasons to go Waco than most. Josh wanted me to see Glass Doctor headquarters, Dad always talks about a Czech bakery in West, we love Dr Pepper, and why not stop by Magnolia Market. To be honest with you. I have never watch fixer upper. I know SHOCKING! I wanted to go to magnolia market to eat at the food truck Milo. Milo is ran by a guy I went to college with, and the pictures he always posts reminds me of Eat Street Markets in Brisbane and we used to love to go there and chill. So why not?!?
We went to Magnolia Market first. They really had cute t-shirts, hats, and gee gaw nick nacks. Middle of the week on a chilly day was a perfect day to go. There was tons of free parking once we drove around to the back, and honestly there were no crowds.
After we walked around, tried Milo's truffle fries, and people watched we headed to see Glass Doctor headquarters. I was honestly shocked how small their headquarters were for such a big group of business. It was really good to see it though and really put Dyer Group more into perspective. I am so glad Josh suggested to go, walk around, and interact with headquarters.
Next, we headed to the Health Camp. It is a restaurant that has been featured on many lists. It was a while in the wall old school hamburger and shake place. Wow! It didn't disappoint. There is nothing like an old fashion grilled cheese.
After the Health Club we headed to the Texas Sports Hall of Fame. They had a whole special exhibit for Nolan Ryan. I was pumped. They had his original contract, his prospect card, and many other cool things.
I would say we used our extra day very well saw Glass Doctor, and did everything Waco for sure. On our way back to Dads we stopped at the Czech bakery in West, Texas. Yep did not disappoint!
Have you been to Waco? What did you like? What did you enjoy?
Last weekend was a rough weekend in many senses of the word. I went to Charlotte after work on Friday, worked for 13 hours Saturday, slept four hours, got on a plane, flew to DC (for 30 minutes), then flew to Orlando. If you know me well, you know I require a lot of sleep. I know my friends with kids laugh at me saying that, but I was the kid would get sick at church camp, just from lack of sleep. So last weekend I slept a total of 10 hours with Friday, Saturday, and Sunday night combined. That with everything else going on, it was a rough weekend. I say all of that to say how amazing the weekend ended.

Well Christmas in Florida felt a lot like Christmas in AU. It is officially winter here, but the last two days have been mid 80's. We woke up early Christmas eve, drove to Cocoa and went to see 800 Surfing Santas. There was a "church service", Christmas carols, and a lot of picture taking. It is a free event but raises money for cancer patients and for the surf museum.
On our way home from Savannah, after two hours of carpool karaoke with 80’s and 90’s country music, we decided to make a quick stop in St. Augustine. I mean when one of the top ten places in the world according to National Geographic to look at Christmas lights is close to our route, why not?!?!? Let me just say, they did not disappoint. It was AMAZING! The atmosphere, the lights, the sounds, the colonial feel mixed with modern, this place should be on everyone’s Christmas bucket list.
Since we are SO far away from family and should only really close on Thanksgiving day... Josh and I compromised, we closed Thursday and Friday and drove up to Savannah, GA for an amazing southern Thanksgiving.
As you can see in the previous post, I put up the Christmas tree, a little early. I know, I know, but after being in Australia, and no one there really celebrating Thanksgiving, we really came to enjoy the Christmas decorations starting at the start of November. I mean if you are going to spend that much, why not enjoy as long as possible. HA!
The other day we did finally take a small break from work and head over to Disney Springs. Now, if you are a old Disney fan this is the former Downtown Disney, but if you are like me and had never done ANYTHING Disney, it was all new. Some of my cousins (Joyce, Doug, Abby (their daughter), her family, Hunter (their son) and his family) from Arkansas text us and let us know they were coming for the week. We decided to drive the looooong, one hour drive, to Disney, eat at the T-Rex cafe, play with Legos, and honestly meet their kids. I am so embarrassed to say I had never met any of their kiddos.
