MIMM: A Fair Weekend

I've been so horrible at keeping up with my blog! Blame it on college, I'm always in class, doing homework, or sleeping. I do workout and occasionally have a social life, but I definitely need to allot myself some time for blogging! Bad blogger Brittany!

Anyway, on to my wonderful weekend full of fairs....which was 2 weekends ago...a little late on this, but at least I'm getting to it!

Saturday the 15th my parents and I went to the Northern California Renaissance Faire for their opening weekend. I absolutely love going to the Ren Faire and was bummed I couldn't go last year.  This year was crazy packed full of people and broiling hot.
 I loved walking around and seeing all the interesting shops and people, they definitely get a little crazy here and it makes for a wonderful day. And of course the eats are freaking amazing too!
 Hibiscus iced tea...this stuff is amazing!!
Scottish meat pie, spiced ground beef in a pastry shell, very delicious
I also got a slice of unpictured cheesecake.

My stepdad and I had a friendly match of archery and he won, but I'm proud of myself for using a heavier bow, so I'm saying I was off my game and he won by sure luck *wink wink*
It was definitely a great day, but it wasn't over yet.

After we got home from the Renaissance Faire I turned around and changed to make my way over to our county fair to meet up with my friend Michael. I didn't get a lot of pictures from this fair since we mostly just walked around, but it was a lot of fun as well. I got myself an overly salted pretzel which is necessary when going to the county fair.
By the time I got home I was exhausted from walking so much (5 hours alone at the Renaissance Faire!), but I had a marvelous day at the two fairs I went to.


  1. I've never been to a Ren Faire, but it's on my bucket list! I have to find one!
