Out intent in heading to Dallas was to visit the Gas Monkey Garage, the location of one of Joel’s favorite shows. We stayed at a KOA located in Arlington, just outside Dallas. Somehow we got so distracted with all the estate sales in the area (there are TONS of them), that we ended up skipping out on Gas Monkey all together. We did manage to take a drive down to Waco (about an hour South) to visit Chip and Joanna Gaines shop, Magnolia Market. They have the popular show, Fixer Upper, and we love their style. The Market did not disappoint! Super cute decor items, a bakery (cupcakes!), food trucks, a giant play field, and loads of charm. I am really glad we took a break from estate sale shopping to check this place out.
Of note, we are really starting to experience winter weather. Yikes, has it gotten cold! The heater in the Airstream is noisy to keep on all night, so we purchased a nice space heater which seems to do the trick. On our last day in town, we saw the forecast that rain was coming and packed up the night before. Luckily we did, when we woke up the next morning, it was pouring and freezing cold. All we had to do was disconnect our water, electricity, cable, and sewer connections and we were on the road. We’ll be traveling hard core the next two days, Amarillo and Albuquerque (where it snowed this morning) before we reach Joel’s Mom’s house in Prescott Valley, AZ.
