It just so happened that REFIT scheduled a training in Waco on my birthday weekend, and what better way for a girl to spend her birthday than with a whole ig family of gal pals?? Seemed perfect to me, so off to Waco I headed after I dropped Kate off at school. It turned out to be a big blessing that I left early, because I completely avoided a freak snow storm situation in Fort Worth later that afternoon. In fact, I never saw snow at all, although it was very, very cold in Waco that day.
So cold in fact, that my trip to Magnolia Market Silos was kind of perfect. I mean, yeah, I froze in the wind chill that was in the teens, but because it was so cold there were hardly any people at the silos and certainly none of them were outside. So I could explore and shop and do whatever I wanted without a bunch of random tourists in my way. It was exactly how I prefer life. I even bought myself a little birthday gift at the marketplace. So my best advice: go to the silos when the weather is horrible. You'll enjoy it a lot more!
