Ren Fest

I had a fabby weekend with my best friend and her hubby, daughter and her hubby's friends. We drove 3 hours to go to Texas Renaissance Festival. I tell you, it is the best people watching experience ever. It cracks me up to watch people jump out of their modern day cars and SUVs and then don medieval wear. I think the chain mail bikini tops were a bit much but what really made us laugh were the men who were wearing Conan like outfits, complete with fur boots and fur loin cloths. Crazy. There was one cute Conan guy that I didn't mind watching so much. Sigh!

Next weekend or the weekend after, I am going to go skydiving with Shannon's hubby Keith while Shannon watches. It's on my list of things I've always wanted to do. Crazy, I know. But I figure I should do it before I get my daughter. I can tell my grandchildren, "Yeah, Grandma was a daredevil in her younger days. She even jumped out of a plane!" The funny thing is that I've always liked that sort of stuff for the most part but scary movies and glow in the dark things scare the heck out of me. Go figure.

I am SO glad you had fun...it was great people watching, and Holly was such an angel during the trip! You are such a great friend to accompany us on such a long adventure! Have a great week, and let me know when your skydiving is going to be - I'll make sure to bid you "adieu" (sp?) - maybe I'll whip up some of my famous cowboy cookies, so you have one last indulgence before you DIE!!!!!!!!!(I'm kidding - I'm sure everything will be...um...just fine ;-)
