This upcoming weekend will be joyous for Carrie and I…it’s not only the weekend but it’s also prelude to the fun time we will be having on Monday!
Monday we are heading to Round Top (Otherwise known as Heaven on Earth for Antique & Craft Lovers)!!!
Round Top is a huge antique festival in Texas – probably the biggest. It occurs twice a year. Carrie’s been many times but last year was my first experience in Round Top and I’ve been anxiously waiting to return. Due to our schedules Carrie and I won’t be able to spend a lot of time in Round Top. We are only able to drive to Round Top, shop for a while and then each drive back home the same day… but it will be just enough and we will savor every minute there.
Monday morning after Carrie takes her children to school, she’ll be heading to Round Top. And I’m sure she’ll be grabbing her favorite Busee’s coffee before heading on the long road trip! I will leave earlier than Carrie because I live further away in San Antonio. By 9:30am we should be deep in the heart of antique shopping in Round Top. Neither of us really need anything which makes shopping there this time really fun. I hate it when I have things I really need to find and can’t find them. So it’s just going to be browsing and relaxing and taking in all the inspiration!
Carrie and I also heard some exciting news. Trader Joe’s is coming to BOTH of us – two locations will open in Houston where Carrie lives and one will be opening up in San Antonio where I live. OMGEEEE!!! I love Trader Joes! They have lots of ethnic and organic brands I can’t find here in Texas. I fell in love with Trader Joes when we lived in Los Angeles and can’t wait to indulge in their goodies again! Hopefully it opens up soon… and close to my house!
Round Top and Trader’s Joes!!?? Happy times!!
We hope you have a good weekend and we’ll be back blogging like crazy next week with updates on all our of Round Top discoveries.
