Thanks to Debbie at one of my all-time favorite blogs, Talking Trash, for the shout out to all those knowledgeable about Texas shopping for me. As she said, I'll be headed to Dallas via I-44 out of Missouri, through Muskogee (my birthplace, incidentally, and the home of my two living grandparents and several other family members) and on through Texas on 69. I have long envied the Texas shopping from afar by way of the many blogs I read. I will have my little boy with me, but he's usually a pretty good junking sport. I don't know how comfortable I will feel venturing off the beaten path, but if it's worth it, we'll find it! I'm more nervous about driving in Dallas than anything else. I'm thinking I could shop a little on the way down on Friday, a little on the way back north on Sunday, and we'll see where I end up on Monday. Thanks for any info!
