Fly On The Wall At A Renaissance Festival

     Welcome to another edition of Fly On The Wall group blog postings, hosted by Karen of Baking In A Tornado. Today, eight bloggers are inviting you into their homes for a glimpse into their private lives.

     Before I get into the humor part of my FOTW post, I'd like to share an important message with you. This week I am honored to have a special article featured on The Mighty, and I'm hoping everyone will take the time to read it. This was a difficult story to share but one that needed to be told in order to help others suffering from Binge Eating and Body Dysmorphic disorders. A help line number is included at the end of the article. You can read the post here:  https://themighty.com/2017/04/being-eating-disorder-body-dysmorphic-disorder-in-children-recovery/  Please help me spread awareness of these forms of mental illness that have robbed so many women and men of living normal, healthy lives.

     Now, onto some humor......This past month, the pesky fly on the wall followed my family to the local renaissance festival, and oh man, the things this fly saw.........

                                   Anyone up for a game of Jumanji?

                                                 
                                           
                     Someone left their food-deprived baby at the circus      



Either I had one too many mugs of beer or I'm seeing a real life "Ram-Man"




I never could resist a handsome bagpipe player....



The stuff that nightmares are made of.....



This one too......




Not sure what tribe she is representing but I'm digging this outfit. 



I've always said that I have the appetite of a Viking, so I think I just found my spirit people.



Two lovely ladies out for a stroll....but they're probably smuggling flasks of rum under those skirts.

Hubs has been out in the sun too long. This is his war cry for, "GET ME OUTTA THIS PLACE!!"

  2. LOL. I'm pretty sure that's the same Renaissance Festival we worked at. I'm so sorry I'm missing it this year. Your pictures are perfect for our Ladies who CCC (catty corner commentary)

  8. I love The Mighty. They've had some amazing resources that have helped me greatly over the past 12 months. Well done for getting featured there. And I love your ren fair photos, we don't have anything nearly as elaborate at the ones down here. I love to see people really getting into the spirit of it.

  11. I've never been to one of these, but they certainly look fun. Different, but fun! Maybe this summer...

  12. You make me want to go to a Renaissance fair! I haven't been to one since I was maybe 25? They're such a blast and I know my son would love going. I need to find out whether there's one near here. Your face paint is AWESOME! Also, going now to your Mighty article. I remember when they were brand new (I've had a couple of things up there). They've become such a fabulous site and I know your words will help so many people. I suffer from similar issues...
