Here's Michelle with her ribbon!


The ladies at the beginning of the day. From the left is baby Madison (who was a trouper the whole time!), Sarah Wise, Mom Rawlins, Stephanie Bean (my super friend from the ward...I totally love her), and me.


What you can't see in this picture is the funnel cake. Oh the funnel cake...Steph, wanna go back next month for more? And don't you love the huge cowboy hat behind us. Gotta love Texas!


At the end of the day with all of our goodies. That's Abby Hobson in the pink shirt and Michelle Fowers over on the right...

Last Saturday I got a girls day out and went to Canton, in East Texas. Since most of you haven't heard of it, it's (I think) the largest flea market in North America. It's huge. It's amazing. And it's a great way to spend a Saturday. I rounded up my girlfriends and mother-in-law and we had a spectacular time. Michelle, who makes customized baby items, was in heaven upon arriving and finding an entire tent dedicated to millions of yards of ribbon. The girl went positively wild. Stephanie found a great antique child's chair that she walked away from twice before going back and buying it. Abby, Sarah and I were all at the jewelry booth in the bargain bin, and we found some great deals! And this was all in the first 10 minutes! So that set a great tone for the day. We all found candles, home crafts and jewelry and random other goodies. Mom Rawlins always gets good smelling sprays and stuff for the house. And let's not forget the 18 pounds of food I put away! I had the single best BLT I've ever eaten. Then a little later on me and Stephanie split the best funnel cake ever created, followed DIRECTLY by the best soft-serve ice cream cone (I could only eat half because it was so rich...and if you know me, you know I don't believe in throwing away ice cream or chocolate, so it was serious stuff).

So, if you're ever planning a visit to see me, make sure it is on the first weekend of the month. We'll go to Canton. It will change your life.
