Repost for our newest followers….Before we were Three Girls Travel we were three girls moms. Our journey began almost 20 years ago when our girls started dancing together. Over the years we have attended dance classes, rehearsals, recitals, and competitions together. In junior high and then high school we attended basketball games, football games, pep rallies and parades where we were only known as the moms of Maggie, Morgan, and Elizabeth. During this time we put many miles on cars and moms because our lives were consumed with being the “moms of Maggie, Morgan and Elizabeth.” Our lives were full and busy, but we loved every minute of it! Fast forward twenty years, now our daughters are all grown up, NOW IT’S OUR TURN!!! Come on back y’all and meet the rest of our family………

Three Girls Travel went out around our town for a day of seeing the sights and lights.
First stop was to Keepsakes Jewelry to purchase a Christmas charm for our travel bracelets.
Thanks Lou for helping us pick out the perfect charms!
Next stop was the Honey Hole, a perfect place to shop on a Saturday afternoon.. Even if you are not shopping for anything specific, you will always come out with something!.
Lunch at El Parian for some Mexican food.
A few beautiful sights from around our town.
As our year winds down and Christmas comes around we would like to wish everyone a very Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year!
Three Girls Travel and Three Girls’ Daughters enjoyed the evening at Murry’s Dinner Playhouse for a wonder performance of Elf.
A selfie of six as we wait in line.
After finding our table we made our way to the buffet.
And dinner is served….
Elf would not have been the same without Michael Klucher aka “Buddy.” This was a sold out performance early in the season and after watching it we understand why. The laughs were many and the music put us all in the festive mood.
Morgan’s friend Will Stotts was also in the cast. It was good to catch up with Will.
More fun during the evening.
Another great evening at Murry’s comes to an end. We enjoyed having our girls with us.
You never know where you could find kindred spirits. This time it was in Waco, Texas the last morning of our trip. Our plan was to go to “Butter My Biscuit” but they were closed. We were so disappointed because we really wanted to go to their brunch. So our next choice was Olive Branch at Spice Market.
As we walked in we spotted a small table in the corner and proceed across the room. As we were passing through we heard a voice saying, “Hey, I like your shirts, do you all travel together?” There sat three ladies at a table and our conversation started at that point. They asked if we wanted to get a table for six and that’s just what we did. We found a large table and had a delicious breakfast together.
Three Girls Travel, our new travel friends and our lovely server who made our breakfast possible and took care of us.
During the course of the next two hours we exchanged stories about ourselves and our families as well as our travel adventures. We learned that we are all very similar. They have been traveling together for seven years and had been interested in blogging but did not know where to start. We shared our knowledge of blogging (as limited as that may be.) At least we could tell them how to get started.
We discussed places to travel that were close to us and they shared the same. They are from Arizona and loved sharing places nearby that would be fun to visit. Since we have not traveled to Arizona that is a place we would like to explore. We hope to meet in Branson, Missouri at some point, which is a trip we all had on our travel lists.
We left finding spirit sisters and we cannot wait to possibly plan some trips where our paths will meet again.
To our “travel sisters” if you reading this, know that meeting y’all our final day in Waco was the highlight of our entire trip.
There are so many excellent food choices in Waco with a lot of very different types of restaurants and young entrepreneurs in the area with unique ideas.
Our first choice was George’s, which we have already blogged about.
Our next great pick was Vitek where the BBQ is about as good as you will find. It’s been in business for over a hundred years, starting out as a butcher shop. Their special is the “Gut Pak” so Lee and Deb had half a gut pak.
We also tracked down a great taco food truck, Las Trancas (Chip Gaines goes there for tacos.) We decided to take the advice from our Waco Tour guide and try Torchy’s Tacos for their cheese dip, aka “liquid gold.”
Brunch on Sunday morning was at Olive Branch in The Spice Market.
Of course the reason you would go to Waco, if you weren’t going to visit Baylor, would be to go the Magnolia Market. The lines were long but it was worth the wait. We stood in the long, long line for the Silos Bakery for some of the famous cupcakes and then on to Magnolia to do a little (or a lot) of shopping.
And… the best photo bomber award goes to …… April from Florida.
After the bakery we visited the Market.
We bought many treasures and made our way to silos and the garden section of the Magnolia.
The last stop of the day was a trip to the Findery to shop.
When the vehicle is full you have to stop shopping!!!
A thankful thought from Cathy…..
I am thankful for modern miracles that come in the form of medical research and clinical trials. Without this a little boy named James would not be here today. Almost five years ago James was born with an ultra-rare genetic disease. This would be a terminal diagnosis except for a clinical trial. Years of research preceded this trial and made it possible. Today James is alive and going strong. Miracles are happening every day in labs and hospitals around the world by those who dedicate their lives for a cause. God is still performing miracles today. You just have to know where to look. For this I am thankful every time I look at the smile on my grandson’s face.
This week on Tuesday was “Giving Tuesday.” We are thankful for people who give monetarily and of time for those who need help when they have nowhere else to turn.
