Frugal Weekend

September 21st, 2013 at 10:01 pm

A lot going on this weekend...

Today (Saturday) we had F's soccer game in the morning, then we headed over to the Renaissance Fair at our local living history museum (we have a family membership, so we didn't pay; brought a picnic lunch and just bought drinks at $1 each; we may go back tomorrow, too). This evening we're going to a get together to benefit the CASA program (court appointed special advocates for kids in foster care); we're happy to make a $25 donation. There's a place for frugality and a place for giving.

Tonight F's friend is sleeping over, so it's pizza night. Tomorrow: turkey bacon and french toast. And then back to the Renaissance Fair! Actually the only thing that weirded me out about the Fair today were the outfits. There were some that were definitely Renaissance, but a lot were just slutty corsets and bellydancers-meet-braveheart (??!!). Ah well, there's a joust and a jester and the kids probably didn't notice the vampire (yes, a vampire!).

OK, I get to relax for exactly 14 minutes before we go to the CASA get-together.

    Those were weird costumes. One wonders if they were pushing it a bit.

    They were weird costumes. There seemed to be a lot of "Game of Thrones" inspired costumes. I saw a girl today with horns! And another one who was wearing a beautiful dress and a giant skull mask! Ack! And almost all of the women had wings (various sizes). But the bubble blower woman was amazing; we spent half an hour watching her.
