Hello, everyone! I thought I'd try something different today and write a post not related to my writing.
On Labor Day (Monday) my boyfriend and I went to the Bristol Renaissance Faire. We try to go on Labor Day as it's the last day of the event and it's also like the only day Ian doesn't work that the faire is going on.
So, when I found out it was supposed to storm, I was a little sketchy, but we powered through it anyway. Though, I was a little tempted to turn back around when the rain was so bad that I couldn't see much ahead of myself. But, we made it, and it was far less rainy in Bristol.
That's not to say there wasn't mud EVERYWHERE. (RIP to my Mickey Mouse sneakers.) A guy was advertising the mud show and it's like, everywhere is the mud show... At one point I also scaled down the side of a building to get down a hill because it was too slippery with the mud. Not going to lie, I was kind of proud of myself for not falling and landing in the dirt.
I didn't wear a costume this year, but for the next one, I'm thinking I want to put together a rogue outfit. We'll see. I make grandiose plans for costumes for like anime conventions and then end up wearing the same Squidling costume anyway, LOL. But, I did buy some suuuuuper cute hair bun cages that would look awesome with a costume.
Anyway, it was a lot of fun at the faire. We did a lot of browsing, then the rain started and we huddled under our umbrella to eat. Which, I had the best crepe ever. It was a chocolate crepe covering strawberry ice cream with whip cream, chocolate drizzle, and strawberries on top. Yummmmm! Ian had a Sheppard's Pie which is his food of choice for the Faire. Bristol was actually the first place I had a Sheppard's Pie!
After getting completely soaked and partially covered in mud, we made our way to Lake Geneva for dinner. Lake Geneva is like our number one date spot. But, sadly, our favorite restaurant there closed. The Tempura House had amazing sushi.
So, now we go to Popeye's in Lake Geneva (No, not the chicken place, lol.) It's this pretty cool place that has like five different kinds of Bloody Marys which is like right up my alley. After dinner we walked around and talked. Lake Geneva is super pretty, so even with a lot of the shops closed by the time we got into town, it was still nice. Plus the lake is beautiful and we were looking at the fish that were swimming around.
All in all it was a great date and we ended up passing out pretty hard when we got home, haha!
