Do you ever wake up on a Monday morning and wish the weekend was still happening?
Nahhh, that’s crazy talk.
I’m just back from another fun-and-food-filled weekend adventure in Canton, Texas with Mom and Aunt Linda. If you’re not familiar (come visit me, I’ll take you there), Canton is a city about an hour east of Dallas that hosts a GINORMOUS monthly flea market-style shopping weekend. We’re talking 100k shoppers per weekend and 100 acres of junk vintage treasures just waiting to be discovered.
Canton is one of my favorite places on the planet, partly because I have a shopping addiction enjoy the occasional bargain-hunting excursion and partly because it’s always a girls’ weekend with two of my most favorite people. We stay at the Bluebird RV Park and they are SO NICE TO US even when Aunt Linda’s RV is having a diva moment and we need help turning off the carbon monoxide alarm, finding the power fuse (which looked NOTHING LIKE the picture in the owner’s manual) or hooking up running water.
Anyway, go to Canton and stay at the Bluebird RV Park. Tell Rhonda that Linda, Jeri and Lindsay with the popcorn, beer and questionable RV aptitude sent you.
In the end I came home with some awesome vintage suitcases to stack and make into a manly(ish) side table for Andy, my very favorite handmade soaps and some exciting new hand creams and all kinds of other treasures.
And then on the way home Max had diarrhea in the car and we pulled over at the only site of intelligent life for miles and miles and miles – a liquor barn – and then some shady guys in trucks came in right as we were leaving and basically we narrowly escaped being murdered as drug deal witnesses.
All in a weekend’s work.
Happy Monday, y’all.
