5.26 A day in Instagram

Yesterday I had a great day of running silly errands around town. Some grocery shopping, returning rental movies... not the funnest of things to be shopping for. However I did take some time out to stop by one of my few favorite retail stores, Nordstrom Rack to see if they had any of my beloved Betsey Johnson items that I just needed. I got lucky and found two rings that I had skipped on in the past at over 50% off. Only $40 for the pair, which just had me tickled.

My late night walk with the dogs was rather beautiful to make the day even better. The sunset was pink and just absolutely gorgeous! One of those that cameras just cant seem to capture.

From what I can gather it's a great start to the long holiday weekend.

Ye Olde Renaissance Faire

It was finally that time of year that my mother & I take our yearly trip to The Renaissance Pleasure Faire in Irwindale, CA. It's one of my favorite things to look forward to in the summer, I love the opportunity to dress up and revel in all the fun to be had at the faire.

Our trip this year was last minute since the last few months seemed to fly by, so we endeavored out to the Santa Fe Dam area on the Saturday of closing weekend, which was a tad warmer than I'd hope for but didn't damper our fun any-less.

We had some ahh-mah-zing fish & chips, which is always a favorite of mine, and a delicious strawberry tart to fill my belly while enjoying some of my favorite faire entertainment, Moonie & Broon. (I was a complete nerd and had to get my photo with each of them this year, since I've always talked myself out of it in the past...)

As always my day in the past flew by far too quickly, and now I must begin the countdown till next year's pleasure faire. (Seriously, why can't we all wear cloaks more often? It makes you feel like youre in a fairytale and I absolutely love it)

Maybe by then I will be able to convince my mother to dress-up a bit more. ;)

To find a Renaissance faire near you in the US, peruse this website.
It's choc-full  of great information and an impressive directory of Medieval, Pirate and many other faires of related themes!

I guess I took a 3 month hiatus...

Since my birthday weekend I've been a little dead to the world of blogging, so much for that New Year's resolution to keep a better record of my life...

Anyway I have been debating if I should post a few recap photos of my last three months, however I think that would be a mess all in itself.

Now I've had my Nikon fixed, and my health problems seem to have been solved for the present so I am going to solemnly swear to make myself blog. However, it's nearly 11:45 and I've lead a rather uneventful day so far. So I'll just wait till tomorrow after my mother and my annual trip to the renaissance faire to share photos and get back into the swing of things.

Goodnight & Sweet Dreams World.
