Now, really, about me: I bring the crazy wherever I go, so I've been told...I make fun of myself more than anyone else ever could. I hate: the awkward silence in elevators, watches with no numbers, picky eaters, Cancer and legalism. I love: coffee, stalking Hugh Jackman, my Spanx, COMMENTS, sarcasm and writing: Middle Grade, NA, YA Paranormal and Urban Fantasy.

PA Ren Faire!!
I know I'm not in costume...and that's really lame. Please allow me to explain why. When we visited, it happened to be "Halloween Daze and Spooky Knights" weekend. The husband and I let the girls choose what they wanted to wear. The two big girls decided they didn't care and still wanted to wear their Ren Faire attire, but my little one wanted to rock the Batman mask/cape/suit. I love to encourage their individuality and didn't want to "choose sides" so sans costume I went.
Hands down I love people watching more than anything else at Ren Faire. I love the outrageous costumes, crazy speech, bad acting and I especially love how the big girls pull their corsets so tight their boobs fall out the top. In all seriousness, someone needs to teach a class on corsets 101. Somebody could get hurt! The funniest thing was my daughter's reaction. She said, "Geez, there sure is an awful lot of CARNAGE going on around here!" LOL. So I said, "I'm pretty sure you mean cleavage!" The husband said, "She was right the first time!" Anyway, other than ogling all of the people and finding future characters for my books, I had a blast eating my way through the faire grounds.
The food there is AWESOME. I would like to recommend all of my favorites to you which were: (1) the Wicked Pickle, Giant dill pickles on a stick, need I say more?
(2)The Royal Kitchen's giant turkey leg. See picture of me, mid-chomp. The turkey leg is roasted over a spit and chock full of greasy goodness. It weighs no less than twenty pounds and I gnawed on that bad boy for about two hours! (3) The Queen's Creamery. Of course, we can't forget about desert. A scoop of vanilla ice cream over homemade apple strudel, YUMMALICIOUS. And last but not least,to top off the day in my usual style (4) Dark Knight Cafe's Cappuccino. Fan-frig-in-tas-tic.
It was a stellar day, one my family will not soon forget. Can't wait to go again. As soon as I can find that corset...
