After we all flew into Houston, Hollie picked us up in her mini van loaded with all the essentials: snacks, fruit, treats, and all the books Chip and Joanna Gaines have published. We had to get everyone up to speed on their story.
Driving 3 hours in the car is super fun when you have a stop at Buc-ees in the middle. Kristin was telling us about how amazing it was and it wasn’t until we stopped that we saw it for ourselves. It’s a GIANT gas station that has probably 50 gas pumps .The store is more like a grocery store. Super clean bathrooms are just one of the perks. They have clothing, crafts, home decor, fun snacks and even serve fresh BBQ sandwiches, homemade chips, roasted nuts and their famous Beaver nuggets. Needless to say, we stayed there for a while oohing and ahhing. But dont’ worry, we would stop at another 4 Buc-ees during our trip because it was just so fun and delicious.
Our first impressions of Waco were just as they seemed…run down and a bit sketchy.
However, our Air BNB was the most darling 2 story house. Every single detail was thought about and we were welcomed with fresh baked cookies and eye candy galore. We spent the first 20 minutes checking out every room and falling in love immediately.
