For those of you that might be familiar with it…this is where I went last weekend.
That’s right First Monday Trade Days in Canton, TX. The best little shopping place on earth, in my opinion. (Although I might not think that in July or August!) It’s an open-air market where you can find almost anything…most of it being related to home décor and clothing items. But there were a few vendors selling custom baby bedding options (which I wanted to check out) and lots and lots of monogrammed and personalized blankets, tutus, clothes and assorted goods for babies/kids. It was a pregnant woman’s dream shopping place!
I saw lots of cute things…but unfortunately most of it ran more towards girlie items than things for boys. Oh well…I did find two vendors who did custom crib bedding, but the expense was just too much to justify in my mind. It was all VERY cute (once again, more geared towards girls than boys) and there was one place that I really, really liked. They had material swatches and you could pretty much mix and match and design your own bedding…but I couldn’t justify the expense. If you are interested, here’s their website.
But even if I didn’t find any custom bedding or clothes for little baby boy…
We had a blast…even if I was exhausted and sore the next day. It was a long drive, but we’re determined to make this an annual or maybe even a semi-annual trip.
Here’s some of the other stuff that we got…MOH’s cross…

Now I just have to “be good” for the rest of this week as that dreaded glucose test is hanging over my head on Friday! Plus, with all that junk, and the expansion that my stomach has undergone in the last two weeks…I can’t wait to see how much weight I’ve put on since last month. Really, I can wait…I’m being sarcastic! As long as Ziggy’s still healthy and happy – that’s the most important thing.
It was great spending time with my favorite women…eating junk food…shopping…gossiping…and looking at all kinds of baby things! We even made some headway on planning the baby shower that these girls are throwing me in June so it was a productive weekend all around.
Now if I could just recover!
I’ll leave you with a picture of a flower that I’ve never seen before, but they were growing on the fence along my Mom’s driveway – MOH called them passion flowers. Check these out…
