Sunday Confessions 49



I confess:  The costume I have to wear for one of the characters I play in The Velveteen Rabbit, the Toy Soldier, essentially wears all white.  I am terrified that I'm going to start my period during a performance and end up looking like I was in battle or something.  I think I would literally die onstage if that happened.

I confess:  In the last two weeks, I've eaten at Taco Bell and McDonalds more than I haven't.  I don't want to know what that's done to my blood pressure and cholesterol.  I am not proud.

I confess:  I usually end up spending at least half of every night in Jack's bed.  I know I'm going to miss the cuddles when he's a teen, but I'm desperate for a full, uninterrupted night's sleep in my own bed.

Weekend Snapshots 46


This edition of Weekend Snapshots is brought to you by an amazing sunset out at TRF.  I'm learning how to edit photos on my iPhone {afilliate} and this pic is the result of my tinkering with the editing.  Not much of note happened this weekend - just a typical couple of days at Faire.  I spent most of the weekend in pretty heavy mourning over the results of the election so I didn't leave our room much, hence not many pics this week.  Jack took a nap (shocker) and check out those lashes.  I swear boys get the best lashes.  It's also Jack's job to help Dennis light all the lanterns in our shop at sunset.  He looks forward to it all day long.  We did manage to go see the joust and Jack fed the joust horses some carrots after.  We bought 5 carrots - Jack fed 4 horses and himself, lol.

Don't forget to link up with me and Ariana at 3twentysix and have a great week!!!

Weekend Snapshots 45


The edition of Weekend Snapshots is brought to you by Dennis and Jack working the Gutenberg Press out at TRF.  Part of the reason I've fallen so behind on Snapshots is because all the weekends out at Faire tend to run together (and I don't take as many pictures as I could/should).  There's not too many noteworthy things from this weekend, so this post is mostly a photo dump - Jack got a new fireman's helmet that he wanted to wear all weekend (until we traded hats for a little while), it was our turn to cook dinner for everyone (see that giant pork loin?!?), and Jack got some good practice in running the Press (he's known how since he was one).  Oh, and there was a great pillow fight between Dennis and Jack.  It was a typical weekend out at faire!

I'm including the link-up that matches this weekend - look for the most current snapshots post (coming up) to add your link!  Thanks to Ariana at 3twentysix for partnering on the link-up!!!

Weekend Snapshots 44


I'm back and playing catch-up with Weekend Snapshots!  It's been a month - a month - since I've made the time to sit down and go through my weekend pictures.  Like I said in this post, October made me it's bitch and I've been trying to play catch-up on all things in November.  So be prepared for a spamming of Snapshots posts, lol.  This edition of Weekend Snapshots is brought to you by Jack at the Louisiana State Fair - finally tall enough to ride the kiddie rides!!!  Lucky he is!

This particular weekend, Jack and I visited my Mom, so be prepared for lots of pics - it was Halloween weekend and we celebrated birthdays with my family, plus I took my Grandma to dinner theatre.  To say we were busy is an understatement.  Check out what we were up to and don't forget to link-up with the most recent Snapshots edition with me and Ariana at 3twentysix!

Sunday Confessions 48



I confess:  I've eaten most of Jack's Halloween chocolate.  We don't let him have unlimited access to candy and have his bucket hidden, but I can't seem to keep my hands out of it.  I'm at least leaving all the fruity/gummy candy that he likes.....but for how long?  But for how long?

I confess:  I sometimes daydream about being a stand-up comic.  People tell me I'm funny (mostly when I'm at parties or gatherings and am telling a goofy story), but I'm pretty sure I couldn't replicate that - and being a comic entails so much writing and as much as I write here and am trying to find  my voice, I'm not sure I would be able to actually write in a funny voice.  But it's fun to think about.

I confess:  I skipped going to the gym all last week (and I was doing pretty well on that front) because I donated blood.  I didn't really need to skip, but I was looking for any excuse and that was as good as any.
