Hello! I have returned to my lovely blog – no, I didn’t forget about it at all. I was simply away doing other things. One thing I shall use as an example is my trip to Houston for the Texas Reniassance Festival. I woke up at 7 am on Friday the 10th and finished my packing and had breakfast and such. My dad took me over to campus and I waited with the two other girls, Lori and Anna. We were ready and waiting a half hour before we wanted to leave. The boys, on the other hand, were not ready to leave at all. It came to be 10 am and the 3 of us girls grabbed our cell phones and started calling people. People as in the boys. Anna dissappeared for a half hour and returned with her boyfriend Josh. At 10:30 I got a call from the driver of the car I would be riding in, Karston. So I ask Karston what is taking so long over there and he said that Jake, a.k.a. Cowboy, was just getting out of the shower. I told Karston to tell Cowboy to hurry up so we can get going. Around 11 I think, the boys finally drove over to the girls dorm to pick us and our luggage up. I believe we got out on the road at 11:30. My car didn’t stop till about 1:30 for lunch at a McDonald’s in southern Oklahoma. We waited 40 minutes to an hour for Cowboy’s truck of people got there. When they did get there, they went in for a quick lunch to go and then they lead the way to Lori’s house in Houston. We hit traffic at the beginning of rush hour in the Dallas area and the end of it in the Denton area. I believe we arrived at Lori’s house between 9 and 9:30 that night. Our other group that stayed at Alyssa’s mom place didn’t get in till midnight as they left campus a few hours after we did. That is a breif overview of Friday. For me, that is breif.
Saturday the 3 of us girls woke up at 6:30. I put on my dress and did my hair and went down. We went to Walmart and I got breakfast there and ate it in the car on the way to the festival. We got there around 10:15 I believe. We all split up and did our own thing for the most part. We all saw the Dead Bob Show because that started at 10:30 I think. I found a shop that had little knives (2 in a sheath) for $5. I had been wanting some since we went to the Medieval Fair in Norman and with them at that price, there was no way that I was going to let it go! I found a booth that had honey sticks and I got 5 for $2. I got my hair braided up so pretty I had a friend take a picture of it for me! We ended up meeting at the gate at 3 and we got a group picture. The group that stayed at Alyssa’s met us there so they’re in the picture too. We went home and changed and relaxed. We showed each other buys of the day and exchanged stories of what we saw and liked. We had left over dinner from Friday night. Lori’s mom made something for us and there was some left over, but not enough. We ordered some pizza and then had a Transformers night. We watched the old Transformers movie they had made back in the 80’s and then we watched the recent one. We went to bed around 12 but didn’t get to sleep a half hour later.
Sunday the three of us girls were the first to wake up again. We let the boys sleep in a little. Lori made breakfast that morning. Her dad had started Madagascar and so I watched that for the first time. We all got dressed and the three of us girls were fairies that day. It was a lovely day and I had a lot of fun. I got a pearl, I dug for crystals, I threw knives ( and one stayed in the wall!) and I saw a fantastic show called Birds of Prey. I had forgotten to recharge my batteries during the night so they died during the Birds of Prey show that was at 2:30. When it got dark, they had fireworks over the water behind the jousting arena. My friend Anna and I were wondering where they were hiding Gandalf because it was amazing! We left shortly after that and went back to Lori’s house. I don’t think we went to bed till 1 am.
Monday was the sleep in day. Lori and I played video games and she thought the sound of the video games would wake the boys up. Yeah right! Karston was the first guy up. slowly after that the rest of the guys got up. Lori’s dad made salsa and he grilled meat so we could have fajitas and it was sooo tasty! the group at alyssa’s came over and we did a weapon spread and took pictures of it. I think it was like 63 things that belonged to 11 people. It got closer to dinner time and they went home and I forget what we had.
Tuesday we got up and got all our stuff packed and we were ready a half hour early! It was great! So we left early and went to the Kolache Factory and got breakfast there and then started back to Oklahoma. We stopped in some town to meet up with the other car and then all 3 cars headed to Jake’s place for lunch. We were there from 3-5, Jake’s group + Cameron stayed later and didn’t get into town till 11, and they came to my place so I could hold some swords for some people. I had gotten home a bit after 7, and I called Jake to see when they’d be getting here. I watched NCIS with my parents and then retired after I got the swords. It was a good trip and it was a lot of fun!

Fall is here! for the most part

Filed under: Uncategorized — thesupertracey @ 10:10 am

The weather is getting cooler and I’ve seen one tree whose leaves are changing color. The neighbors behind us have a big tree with limbs that extend into our yard and those leaves have already started to drop. I love fall! You get to wear your favorite sweaters and jackets and you can wear jeans all the time! AND its still nice enough where you can have on flip flops or sandals (though most people prefer close toed shoes for colder weather). From time to time over the past couple weeks, I’ve been wanting to be in Maine and Boston just to see the beautiful colors in the leaves and smell the crispness in the air! Ah, fall!

Speaking of fall, this weekend is Fall break for the kids at OC and in Houston, it is opening weekend of the big Texas Renaissance Festival! I’m going with a group of friends and its going to be a lot of fun! I believe everyone has some sort of costume that they are going to be wearing. I have my dress finished all the way – I did the hem on Monday – and I also did the hem of two of Alyssa’s things that she’ll be wearing. We’re all so excited! I still don’t know how I will be wearing my hair. I’ll figure that out later though.

My project for today is finish painting my bathroom! Its a yellow paint and it reminds me of a happy daffodil. I like the color it is at right now, but there’s some writing around the top that I did in Elvish and mom wants it nice so if we sell people won’t know about the Elvish. It’ll need two coats for sure. MAYBE a third. we’ll see how long the paint lasts.

Ta ta!
