Why did I wait so long to get away?

Lets be honest. There's really nothing like getting away with the girls to eat, laugh, and shop. It fills the soul. And that's just what I did last weekend. 3 of my favorite people and I hit the road and headed to Dallas, where we stayed with my generous brother and shopped Canton Trade Days, and various Dallas hot spots. I'm pretty sure this will be happening again very soon, well, after my budget can replenish itself.
Breakfast early in the AM before shopping

A small glimpse of Canton Trade Days - one of the largest outdoor flea markets in the US

Even Amber braved the crowds, broken leg and all, with a scooter, of course. Although the little dog who she almost ran over would have rather her not.

shopping.......

Lunch at Ikea - you know its a serious store when there's a cafeteria in it.

Last stop, one of Oprah's favorite things - Sprinkles cupcakes.

It's been YEARS since I've been to Canton, but that is such a fun place!!! Oh, I dream of IKEA. I've never been, but Denver is supposed to get one next spring. I'm slightly jazzed about that! Glad you had fun!
