Round Top

Whew! It's been a while since I posted and I'm having myself a little bloggity withdrawal.
Last weekend I went on our semi-annual Round Top Antique Show trip with my friends. Oh my was it fun! There are literally thousands of dealers in tents spread out over hundreds of acres of cow pasture and they are a'dealin'.
It's so fun to find just what you're looking for or just what a friend is looking for and then whittle down the price a little.
"Love this platter. Will you take $10 for it?"
By the end of the weekend I felt like asking if the guy in the drive-thru at McDonald's would take $.80 for the $1.00 double cheeseburger.
We had great fellowship and I think I speak for all of us when I say that kettle corn, iced tea, and laughing so hard tears come to your eyes is more refreshing than a day at the spa. Hands down.
Thank you, Lord for friends, laughter, and kettle corn and thank you for a husband who knows when I'm at the end of my rope and hangs onto the end of his one weekend longer to bless me the way he did. Amen.

So glad that you had fun........last I heard, you hadn't ever had a relaxing 90 min massage so can you really say that with conviction?? :) Nothing better than girl time, though I prefer drinking the tea and laughing with my cozy white robe, slippers and waiting for "Mrs. Alexander" to be called for one of many treatments!!!

Just realized that I am logged in as Avery, but it is me none the less.

So grateful that you had such a good time. And yes, you do have wonderful friends-- fun friends too.
And grateful you got away before the rope snapped.
Love you,
Candy
P.S. withdrawal... you just forgot the "a". I'm a spelling/editing nerd

Love Mrs. Hill's comment! I, too, am a correct-spelling-and-grammar nut!

Hey Melissa!
We were in Rountop on Tuesday for a day trip there, which I don't recommend.

My personal favorite (above all of the bartering of course) is the stuffed squirrels. Where else can you find beautiful french antiques next to stuffed squirrels?
