A couple of weeks ago, we ventured to Texas to celebrate my Mama's 50th birthday (I know, she's a youngin'!). We went specifically to go to this huge flea market called Round Top which only happens twice a year. My mom has wanted to go to for what seems like forever, so we all decided this would be the perfect way to celebrate.

We stopped in Austin a few days (unfortunately, I forgot my camera), dropped by San Antonio, spent some time in Wimberly, and drove around the back roads of Texas. We ate ungodly amounts of breakfast tacos (YES!) and not quite enough BBQ. And of course, my mom and I (PJ too, surprisingly) traversed what seemed like hundreds of miles of flea market territory, complete with quite the cast of characters. I managed to somehow contain myself to a few plates and an old camping blanket from the 1940s (all pictured above). PJ also bought a vintage suitcase that he is going to fashion into a kick drum.

Overall, it was a great trip, though we hope to return to Austin in the near future and spend more time there. We also didn't run into Tim Riggins, so that was disappointing. Clear eyes, full hearts, can't lose.
