Sunday morning, got up late to go to faire. I had a blast even though I was exhausted. My dear friend Katie came to check out the festival with some friends of hers. I met the cutest little girl named Madison. And her Mommy and Nana too. One of the ladies in Katie's group even bought a whole outfit. All the way down to the shoes. It' looked great.
I didn't have my camera and wasn't able to borrow anybodies for pictures but I am going to ask Katie if any of her friends got me in the background, of one of theirs.
But that's my update for the week.

Which is exactly what happened. When my brother and sister were ready to go... I was too tired to even get out of bed. So sadly I had to tell them to go without me.
But I was at faire on Sunday.... and had a blast as usual. I didnt take a camera, but my sister did so I only have the pic I asked her to take with me, and her pics. I didnt do much interesting stuff on Sunday, It was soo hot and miserable, I was just zombified. I did enjoy some excellent food though.
Some of the foods that I enjoyed were as follows:
- a pretzel
- a pickle
- a steak on a stake
- fried cheese
- tropicolada (drink)

Friday night I enjoyed a party at my friend Matt's house. (Happy Birthday Matt) While I was there the topic of faire on Saturday came up, and almost everyone with the exception of Jason and my self agreed that they would not be attending faire on Saturday. As most of you have probably guess by now, this was the Saturday of the Tropical Storm Hannah.
Saturday morning, came and we went to faire. Can I just say that I was drenched as soon as I got out of the car. Im talking, worst than taking a shower, could ring out my shirt, drenched.
I stole these two pictures from my Myspace friend Scruffy (thanks Scruffy). Though you can't really see the rain, I would like to point out the new river running by the Jousting arena. I can't even begin to explain how wet we were.... nor the fun we had. Thank you to all the renfest workers who came to work on this day. Special thanks to Rossman, aka: Squire of the Wire, who joined the London Broil's last show of the day to make it all that much more entertaining. I have a new found love for the Squire and have decided to add him to my list of shows to take newbies too.
Sunday was excellent also, especially since we got to tell all of the not so tough people what the had missed the day before. I am really glad we didn't chicken out and stay home for the tropical storm.
In the audience of Hack and Slash, we joked about Mrs' Shelton's pretty new costume and how it resmbled a "seatbelt" for Stacy when she sat next to her. We being the goofy type we are, felt the overwelming need to take a picture as if we were on a roller coaster . Note the pretty new costumes -never seen before.
Each beautiful lady is the artist and creator of her own costume. Let's take a moment to take in the sheer talent each of these ladies posses.
By the third and final day of this extended weekend, we were all beyond exausted. As you can probably guess we were not rested and ready for work and school the next day. However with that said, we had plenty of interesting stories to tell our co-workers and fellow students.
The first weekend was free for children. I have no children so I decided to kidnap my bestest buddy Jamie's daughter, Emmersyn (whome we call Emme). She is super awesome, and very smart, and I knew that she would love all of the excitement.
Here she is in the car on the way there (yes there is a child seat under that pretty princess outfit). Quick note: on the way there, driver Jason picked the "three little bird" song by Bob Marley for our musical enjoyment. Tell me why this adorable child knew every word, and sung along with great enthusiasm.
While we were there we had excellent food, and entertainment.... As usual. Emme got her face painted, and insisted Stacy and I did too. Here is Emme and myself just after our faces were painted.
We also had a free pony ride, and went down the slide twice. We were going to get a princess hat but amazingly Emme opted for horns instead (how awesome is she?). We ate a lot, but among emme's favorites were: a fruit bowl, ice cream with chocolate syrup, a soft warm pretzel and my pickle.
I would like to think that Emme's favorite show was "The London Broil", since that's the show that she decided that she wanted to take a picture with ONE of the performers. There are 3 performers that make up the infamous "London Broil", but she had her favorite from the beginning, and that was Louie. Although she calls him "Willie"?!It was very hot, but we made it through the day with virtually no problems. And Emme's mother tells me she constantly asks when she can go back.
