I'll be there both tomorrow and Sunday this weekend with my boyfriend (it'll be his first time at a Ren. faire. We made matching costumes).

And I won't be going this weekend.  My Spaniard is out of town racing sailboats and I have a luncheon to make an appearance at on Saturday.  Enjoy and I'll see everyone another weekend! :)
I don't know what you've heard, none of it is factual, but it's all true.

We are here and checked in at the hotel!  Already bumped into one freindly and familiar face!  Hope to see more soon.  Someone please turn off this rain!!

The tornado siren just went off, or maybe it was to warn of the severe storm coming through, but this rain has got to stop. Looks like it should clear up by the time faire opens. Hope the grounds are not horrible flooded or excessively muddy. We are still planning on making it, and we are hoping to be chipper considering neither Eric or I will have had much sleep. Eric's out on the roads working as I type. Boo.

Hope all are sleeping sounds. Hopefully we will see you soon. :)

My real name is Meg. My boyfriend asks that you please not go to Sandlar looking for me. I'm right up from there in the Ancient Arts Jewelry booth.
Thanks.

LOVE IT! And it worked!!! :)

The weather was amazingly beautiful!!! Opening day was pleasant minus the fact that Eric and I hardly made it through the day with NO SLEEP what-so-ever. By the end of the day, Eric had been awake over 26 hours, and I had been awake over 36 hours. Boo. No sleep equaled the grumps, but over all the day was sweet. I really wish the faire was open earlier and later into the evening. I need more than seven hours of the time warp experience.

Oh We had soooo much fun.  It was amazingly beautiful sunshine and so comfortabel to be in garb.   Looks like it is going to be a terrific year!   I saw: Aavid,  Lady Christina, Bama and his bride, LadyHawkontheHill and Jim, fairieimp and Sean, and so many more new freindly faces.   Can not wait to come back with Sarah for closing weekend.   Thank you all for making this such a great weekend!  I hope everyone took pictures to post!  I'll try to get mine up tonight!

Wife? What wife? I was escorting a Pagan princess through the lands of Fairehaven, as is the founding charter for Warrior Monks.... :P ;) ;D

It was great seeing everybody I was able to speak to.   It was a completely different feel working instead of just wandering around. 

-WM I believe I saw you pass by a couple of times but it seemed like I was with a customer on both occasions. 
-Amy it was lovely talking to you as always.
-Lady Christina it was good to see you again and be sure to stop by if you come back out.
-Eric and Bittersweetheart I think y'all came into our shop but I may be mistaken, if you come back out be sure say hello. You may have to knock me upside the head, but please use something soft. 
-Avidd, good to see you as always and I'll let you know if/when we decide on LaRF.
-Meg we'll see you next weekend, maybe we will have more time to chat then. 

Also for anyone I missed and any one else who comes out, my wife and I are in the Crimson Chain shop most of the day and both of will have our R/F pins on.  She is easy to find since she's the only female working the booth and usually has her pin at the cleavage level.  Mine is pretty much always at the belt buckle level. So look for us and get our attention, we both love to talk.

Brother, did you not offer me advice on boots? If not, beware, for there is surely a doppleganger within the confines of Fairhaven!! ;D

Yes, WM!   Huge glaring pink elephant missing in my list!!!      You were a most illusive cat to catch this weekend and I failed miserably!

BWAHAHA.. I just saw Bama's  "cleavage and belt buckle" comment.   Funny!   and here all this time I have been looking at their faces!
