Jason surprised me by taking the day off and planning a day trip to Waco…. to antique shop! He had been planning this for about a month. He doesn’t antique shop EVER so this was a total surprise to me. One of our favorite shows is Fixer Upper which is based in Waco so he had looked up the shops we would visit. He also had a friend of mine in on the surprise. She would pick the boys up from school and take them home with her. He also had her let the little puppy out that I take care of during the week. I was beyond excited and surprised by all of it.
Once we got the boys off to school we stopped at Starbucks then were on the road to Waco!
Yay for day trips!
I was SO excited to see this place! It was small and most of the stuff were things that you could probably buy in Hobby Lobby or just make yourself if youre crafty enough. Cute little shop though!
I was bummed that Junque in The Trunk was only open Friday-Sunday. Boo! I LOVED the tables, doors, and windows they had sitting outside!
We went to a couple more antique stores then went to Buzzard Billys for lunch. It was so good! We fed the fish and ducks while we waited. It was perfect patio weather!
The armadillo eggs were huge! We also had burgers and gumbo. We were stuffed!
Jason had another big surprise for me. He would’t tell me what was going on. It drove me crazy, but I loved it!
Long story short he called one of the guys that work for the Fixer Upper show. He makes custom made signs for them, and Jason had one made for us. We got to watch Jimmy Don do his thing in his workshop. I was so excited!!!!
We didn’t have time to wait for the sign to be finished. Jimmy Don felt bad he was running behind and told us he would ship it to us for free. He also mentioned how he wanted to have the sign hanging up for me to see when I walked into his workshop. He was so nice and seemed really overwhelmed by his new found fame from the show.
We had to get back on the road so we could make home by at least 5:00 to get the boys. I always get nervous when Im away from the boys for a long time. Does that feeling ever go away?
We had enough time though to pull over at Tonkawa Falls for a little while. We saw this place from the highway as we drove into Waco. It was beautiful! It was so hard to leave!
The perfect day with my favorite person!
