I am so tired and this month has been so full of activity I need a break. Its not even over yet. That’s it, no activities in November are allowed. I woke up around 8 and was to tired I didn’t think I was going to make it. But after some exercise I felt much better and was ready for the trip.
I love love love my ren faire costume this year and I couldn’t wait to wear it. I think the only thing that was a bummer today was that it got pretty cold at some points but it was dry and nice, though breezy, for 90% of the day. I had a really great time! Jess’s family is so nice. They got me mcdonalds for breakfast and we also went to ChickFila and Starbucks but I didn’t get anything there. The ride to Lancaster County was a nice drive and we talked the whole way there because me and Jess can talk forever. It was a beautiful fall day.
I got to go to the faire for free because Jess’s brother’s fiancé works there so that was really a nice surprise. And her dad gave Jess $20 for food which she shared with me. So I spent most, but not all of my money. First thing we did was go see Circus Stella, which is the act that made us want to try aerial silks. It was great as always and we spent the whole time saying “we can do that!”. And it was so great.
We left her family after that and got mac and cheese to share. It was really good and hot and perfect. We looked around a lot and wanted to buy everything but held back because we had limited funds. We looked around for a long time and talked and people watched. It was fun. We were still really hungry so we ended up getting a brownie to split, which was giant. It was good but would have been better warm.
It seemed the big thing this year was stripy thigh high socks. There was a stand that had a ton of them and they were 100% cotton which was nice. Jess ended up getting 3 pairs by the end of the day and I got one pair of decorative knit solid black ones. The ones I got were more expensive but I felt like I would get more use out of them being thicker. I’m happy with the purchase.
We also had some really good curly fries and we saw cute boys and I pet some grey hounds, which are my favorite dogs. I had some good conversations with strangers and saw an elephant and bought a cast iron mouse. I also found a silk rose on the ground at the end of the night and I kept that so that was a nice surprise from the universe.
It was a really great day. Around 4 we had a sit down meal with her family at the mermaid and anchor restaurant but we had just had some fries so we picked from everyone elses’ plates and had some really awesome bread.
After some more walking around and then waiting for the end of the joust we all piled in the car, took off our corsets and went home.
My parents are still traveling back but should be here soon. I am very tired but I am going to stay up to see them. It was a really nice day. I am ready for bed though. I’m having lunch with Jess and Kat downtown tomorrow so that should be fun. I have almost no money left though so we will see what happens with that. I hope you all have a good night and sleep well.
