I can't remember where I live - is it Waco or Magnolia Land?

According to our news partners at KWTX, Chip and Joanna Gaines have revealed plans to expand the Magnolia Silos.

Am I shocked? No. Disappointed? Yes. I hate to be that person, but Magnolia drives me a little crazy as a Waco native.

The new expansion began a couple of weeks ago, with a Wiffle ball field and concession stand a part of the big renovation plans. Also to come are six new lifestyle retail shops alongside a new entrance to the grounds.

Oh, and let's not forget that the relocation of a historic church from 1894 will also be joining the Silo grounds.

Again, as a Waco native the gentrification is killing me. Property taxes are higher than ever, and people who have lived in the area for generations can no longer afford to stick around.

But hey, I heard the cupcakes are good at least.
