So excited to share my stay at The Magnolia House in Texas from a couple months ago. What a dream!
My Stay at The Magnolia House

Left Top Row: Maria of Two Peas and Their Pod, Sarah of Pretty Providence, Me, Kristen of Six Sister’s Stuff, Kristyn of Lil Luna, Jennifer of Tater Tots and Jello.
Left Bottom Row: Kelli of Lolly Jane and Kristen of Capturing Joy.

Had the best weekend with these talented ladies.  We were lucky enough to be able to stay in The Magnolia House which is next to impossible to get a reservation.  I soaked in every second in this beautiful home and weekend!

If you are a Fixer Upper fan, you know that Joanna Gaines has impeccable taste.  There was no detail left undone.

We were all so excited to go shopping at Magnolia Market.  If you’ve been to Disneyland on it’s busiest day, times that by two and that’s what it was like inside, lol!  Not even kidding.  It was hard to even shop there were so many people around.  I still had fun, but good grief there were zillions of people!

My Stay at The Magnolia House

On the rooftop of the Market.  We were lucky enough to get a private tour and got to check out the view from the rooftop.  This is such a great place for families.  Wish it were closer to AZ!

Inside of the market.  I really enjoyed the goodies for sale.  It was just so frustrating because I had no room to ship anything.  Oh well, it was fun to window shop 🙂

We also got to meet this adorable couple that owns this Pokey-O Cookie Truck.  These ice cream cookie sandwiches were a highlight of the trip for sure!

My Stay at The Magnolia House

Snickerdoodle Cookies with Butterfinger Ice Cream.  Whoa!!!

My Stay at The Magnolia House

Another highlight was getting to meet Clint and his wife at their shop.  Harper and Co.  Great times!

So grateful I got to spend time with these ladies at the Magnolia House.

Thrilled to share my Mother’s Day Gift Guide with you today! I picked out some adorable gift ideas that any mom or woman in your life will just love!
Mother's Day Gift Guide 2016

This Bouquet Oxford Medium Tote from MZ Wallace is a dream!  Love the pretty floral print!  I have a number of MZ Wallace bags and I have to say they are some of my very favorite bags to carry.  These totes make the best carryon bags when traveling.  I use them all of the time and how adorable is this floral print?

Mother's Day Gift Guide 2016

Cutest night shirt!  I always keep in mind these models are usually close to 6ft tall, so it will actually probably hit right above the knee 🙂  Cute!!

Let Them Eat Cake, cake plate.  Love this!!  Can’t you just pictures a giant piece of cake on this plate?  So perfect for a birthday celebration.
