Is It Saturday Yet??


I cannot wait for Saturday. I have been looking forward to this Saturday for about a month now...Why? It's just the 2nd Saturday of the month, what could possibly be so exciting this Columbus day weekend? The Connecticut Renaissance Faire, that's what!!

I have always wanted to go to a Renaissance Faire. I had a friend growing up who always went to King Richard's Faire in the fall, and I was always so doggone jealous. As a drama-type person, the idea of all the Chivalry of the medieval times really gets me pumped. Well now I am a grown-up, and thanks to Hubby's income, I can afford to do things I never could as a kid. Like go to the Ren Faire. I even bought an outfit to wear, and outfits for the kids too!! Of course, the outfits are doubling as Halloween costumes, so I am getting my money's worth....Isn't my outfit beautiful?? ( I won't be wearing the hoop skirt underneath like in the picture, so it won't be as poofy)




Well, then I decided to up the ante and go for something I REALLY always wanted to do. Join the SCA. Yep, I am a geek at heart, and I love this stuff. I want to learn how to make the clothing and do the cooking stuff. I really am a woman, aren't I?

So me, the kids, my friends Kristen, Adam, and Mimi & Durk and their son, are going to be heading to Hebron on Saturday morning for a full day of Renaissance Fun! I think Nessa & Dave are even gonna meet us there! It's so rare that I get excited for something like this, I just cannot contain it. Every time I talk to someone who is going with me, I gush like a kid waiting to go to FAO Schwartz or something. This is MY kind of fun, and I can't wait!!

I will try to take pictures, but since the digital camera still hasn't been taken to the shop, I am going to use my 35 MM SLR. I am sure I will still get some great pictures. I may even drag out the scanner for them!

For heaven's sake, SATURDAY GET HERE ALREADY!!!

Even though Dr. John has encouraged me to try many new things, I've never been to a Renaissance fair. However, I do have a friend whose father is a Renaissance Singer, and dresses up in the garb on a regualr basis. (At least, that's the excuse my friend gives me...)

The Ohio Ren. Fest is the most fun weekend of my summer. Like you, I just love this stuff, the clothes, the pretend, the chivalry! My local chapter of the SCA is male dominated and my husband has no interest, so I'll have to live vicariously through your adventures! Have fun.

Sounds like lots of fun! We have something simular here in Savannah, GA. I'd have to join as a Yankee though - since I'm transplanted from Joisey.

There's a King Richard's Faire up here in Mass., where I live, I think. Never been. So you go and have a good time and don't get flogged.

Shari said...

OMG! Did you really wear that outfit? That's awesome!

I've never been to a fair like that. That'd be cool.

Aloha!
