Renaissance Festival

HI! : )

I hope you guys are doing great and that your weeks are all off to a great start. Can you believe it's already July!? Half of 2014 is already over, which seems crazy. 

Garrett and I have been busy with work, but we have also been trying to plan fun weekend adventures. Living in Colorado has many upsides, one of them being the amount of things to do and see here. While we love our lazy weekends, and get plenty of those in, we have been trying to seek out things to go do and explore on the weekends.

This past weekend, we went to the Renaissance Festival (as you probably already know if you follow me on Instagram). It. was. Awesome. I love being somewhere that seems to take you to another place and time, and this was just that. The shop owners were in costume and spoke with an accent, there was a jousting tournament, and the buildings were designed to look like they were from that time period. It was like an entire theme park dedicated to the Renaissance. The people watching was pretty spectacular too.

I have been wanting a flower crown/headband/whatever you call it for awhile and I found several here. I wish it were normal to wear flowers in your hair everyday. 

My friend Julie went with us and she and I spent the majority of our time trying on hats. 

I shared my first ever turkey leg. It was delicious, albeit also a little disgusting. Something about biting meat off the bone, seeing blood veins, and tendons thoroughly grosses me out. 

It was a fun weekend and Garrett is already planning his outfit for next year. Yes, I'm serious. 

We both work Fourth of July evening and are not too excited about it. I just want to go watch fireworks! What are your plans for the 4th?

Hope you have a safe and fun weekend!


  1. This looks like so much fun! The turkey leg looked so good until you described it, yuck! Haha. I've never had it before but I'm sure it is tasty!

    I love that he has his outfit planned for next year!

    I'm going to spend it with my in-laws. It's what we do annually for 4th of July. Sorry that you both have to work ... that should be against the law.

  2. They have those Turkey legs at the fair. It's hilarious walking people walk around with a giant leg in their hand. I'm not a big fan of meat off the bone either. That festival looks really fun. I love little things like that to do that are different. You look gorgeous in your crown. : )

  3. SO fun. I love your headbands! Charles is obsessed with turkey legs at Disneyland, but these look amazing too!
