Adventures at the End of the Dirt Road
This is a look back at all my adventures this past week.
Okay, I’m going to be honest: I’m exhausted and more than a little brain-dead from all the information I learned last week at the Achieve Conference in Waco.
I just returned after being gone for six days, and I can’t wait to share all the fun things about Waco. However, I will share a few of the exciting things we did today and next week, I’ll share more details when I’m not jet-lagged.
First, we were able to walk to most of our destinations from the Hilton Hotel. It was right beside the Historic Suspension Bridge and Riverwalk area.
The bridge was completed in 1870 and served as a Chisholm Trail crossing for cattle.
No trip to Waco would be complete without a visit to Magnolia at the Silos. We had so much fun exploring this unique shopping experience.
I’ll be sharing more from inside the store next week.
We extended our stay so that we would have time to have brunch at Magnolia Table and visit more of Downtown Waco.
I’m traveling home today and will be sharing more adventures from Waco through out the week.

It can be overwhelming to find all the deals. Just comment at the bottom of this post, and I’ll help you source the items you are looking for.
Here are some items I ordered last week and a few I plan to add to my cart for Prime Days. I’m also linking some items I wanted to purchase that I saw in Waco and some items I packed for the trip.
- This cute Crossbody Bag I saw everyone carrying in Waco is being delivered today.

- I just ordered the new iPhone 15 Pro, and I’m getting this magnetic cordless mobile charger.
- And this protective iPhone case
- I saw these round votive candles at the Findery in Waco but didn’t want to carry them in my luggage. Thankfully, they are available here.
- I also loved these Cast Metal Candlesticks, but they were too heavy to travel home. I’ve got them on my wish list.
- I can’t wait to get these Propagation Station Terrariums that we saw at the Findery. They can be used almost anywhere in your home and are available on Amazon here.
- I used this small, lightweight bag for shopping.

KariAnne Wood was at the conference for a book signing, and I picked up one I didn’t have called DIY Style Finder.
If you don’t have her latest book, it’s now available. 10 Minute Decorating Ideas is a must have.
Plus.. I spent the whole week with Stacy Ling and you can pre-order her Beginner’s Guide to Flower gardening due out in February.
Thanks for following along and I am so excited about what’s to come in October and beyond. Stay turned for all the adventures.
Don’t forget to let me know what you are looking for during prime days.
