This past weekend several family members of my husband's side of the family met up for a girls' weekend. We met in Frisco, TX, at one relative's house, then headed out early Friday morning to drive to Canton First Monday at Canton, TX.
The only thing I knew I was going to buy was seven bottles of Mexican vanilla. I had just run out of the two bottles I bought last year, so getting new bottles was perfect timing. I was excited about my purchases, until I got my 'proud bubble' burst! Apparently I can get this vanilla any time at a restaurant about an hour away from home - at any time. It's $12 instead of $10, but not bad for the huge bottle. And then my bubble got burst even more. Apparently I can get this same vanilla at WALMART! Hmmmmph! Can you believe it? Me, either!
I did buy a few other things at Canton.....mostly decorating mesh and a big OU item for my son's class auction basket...and a candle.
In reality the trip isn't about the shopping. It's about getting together as a family. (And, it's about making it through Dallas area traffic in a small way!) We don't have the opportunity to do that very often with busy schedules and our own family activities/obligations. It was fun talking, laughing, playing cards, and eating together.
Thanks for the fun time together, ladies!
