Weekend Plans

1. Truck by Truckwest Food Trailer Crawl. We bought badges and got out a bit on Tuesday night, but haven’t been able to use since due to the boy’s work schedule. But the weekend! Weekend is fair game and open swaths of time. We’re going to be hitting the food trailer circuit hard on Saturday and raking in the free-with-badge noms.


2. Texas Renaissance Festival. I’m always up for a good ren faire. So when a friend suggested it and I saw it was Pirate Weekend this weekend, I was in. Because I get to trot this costume out for another go-around:

Me as a pirate wench a few years ago.

So if you see this pirate wench (with longer hair and a few more pounds, and hopefully less devilish eyes) out and about at the faire on Sunday, come say hi. 🙂

3. The pickles we started the other weekend should be done with their fermenting. There will be a taste test on Sunday. Looking forward to seeing how they turned out.

What are you up to this weekend?
