weekend review {once upon a time...}

You guys. The town I live in is kinda weird (but we already know I'm not a fan of it).
But my husband is even weirder.
Our town held a Renaissance fair this past weekend which was actually a lot of fun! But the weird thing is that people practice year-round for this thing. Adults will get all dressed up and go to the park and sword fight.... It's the weirdest thing to us, but I guess it's because we don't understand that hobby. Anyway, as we were walking into the park where the Renaissance fair was held, Eric mumbled that he was NOT going to be in any of the pictures. (I'm sure you can imagine, the man hates pictures!) But guess what? He turned into a little boy... running around playing with swords, photo bombing the characters (Date Night anyone??), looking at costumes from the vendors. And the best part was that he wanted me to take the pictures (but he will deny that until the day he dies, ha ha)! 
Gosh, I love that man. He always keeps me guessing :)
We had a fun night with friends eating fried junk food, watching our husbands run around like little boys, and checking out the car show. I kind of don't want summer to end!

Mia's just showin' off her TWO TEETH! / Fried oreos. Disgustingly good.
Introducing Mia's fake smile. I don't know how she has figured out how to fake it already?
Belly dancers who have swords lit on fire. Not the hobby for me. / Eric is so proud of this photo bomb.
Couldn't keep a straight face :)

P.S. Don't forget you can purchase ad space for 25% off this month! Just use the code "25july"
P.P.S. Who's spent the weekend buying up hostess goodies? I may or may not have eaten a bag and a half of those rotten donuts already. Shame. on. me.

I've always wondering how they fry oreos...good to know that there is some sort of breading around it, instead of just plopping an orea in a deep fryer. Looks sort of fun, but like you said weird.

One of the nearby towns throws a Renaissance Festival every year. One time, my friend dragged me to go -- it was CRAZY! I can't believe how into it people get! Haha.

We have a park near our house that we always go to and one day they were dressing up and playing with swords there! My sister told me its called LARP (live action role play). I think this is hilarious and enjoy incorporating the word larp-ing into my vocabulary. I may or may not have taken some pictures from afar...

Are fried Oreos really good?? I've had a fried candy bar before, but it wasn't all that great.

Christiana Marie said...

Amberly Lambertsen said...

Oh men.... what would we do without them! :)

Kimberly said...

So funny! Your husband's face in the last picture is hilarious! Where do you guys live?

Lauren said...

i always think these festivals are so weird...but those oreos would make it worth it!

Katie said...

She looks more and more like her dad in every picture.

Camille DiPaola said...

DeAnna Stephens said...

They have a festival like that here too but it's in the Fall. It is super creepy how many people are into that! Seriously!!!!

Nichole said...

Bahaha, we have a "ren fair" {as some people call it} here every year too, and people go in-sane! I have never been, but your photos look like it was a good time :)

We have a ren festival here in Tampa too and we've been a few times! The food is always delicious :-)

Laura Rafferty said...

Fried oreos - wow!! And that's really all I have to say!

Laurie Olsen said...

we have a ren faire by us as well. i've never been but i always thought it was funny seeing them in costume say at staples. making copies and never breaking character. now that's commitment!

Deidre said...

Wow. Looks like a fun way to spend the evening.

I love the photo bombs! Too funny.

Sarah @ Life, Love & Dinner said...

that fair is too weird for me but I would go just for the oreo's! Mia is too cute!

Shaylynn... a girl, a story, a blog said...

How you managed to convince one another to go this I will never know.. In Pennsylvania they have a HUGE fair, a permanent location, it costs so much money, so I never went.. but it was a genuine deal.. no fried oreo's.

Care said...

Haha I've never heard anyone call their town weird before.. but i see what you mean:-)
Love the pictures, looks like such a fun summer thing to do together! Keep counting your blessings!

lori said...
