I feel like we've been doing more Chrismas-themed events this year than ever before, and in keeping with this trend, we ventured the 90-ish miles up to Waco last weekend to hang out at Magnolia Market for their Christmas at the Silos event. It was decorated all cute and there was even a Santa in the garden who was unfortunately on a break while we were there, because I probably would have insisted on a picture.

We didn't actually see Chip and Joanna, which was slightly disappointing, but we did see the couple from the most recent episode, with the cute kids' rooms. So that's basically a celebrity sighting, right? Ali wanted to approach him, but then we couldn't think of a good introductory line..."hey, you're that guy from that episode" just didn't seem to cut it, so we just awkwardly stared at him from afar.
Tonight we're going to the Austin Trail of Lights, which is the biggest Christmas event in the city. We tried to go last night, but were basically turned away because we hadn't pre-purchased a parking pass. What?? So, we went home and bought a parking pass for tonight and will try again!
