Goodness, it's been a while!

Hello, everyone! It's been a while since my last post...we're in House Renovation Land, and this past weekend, my husband and I went with several friends to the Highland Games on Loon Mountain! Lots of fun to be had at this three-day festival, even for us non-Scots! Amongst my personal favorites:

1. Albannach: this band is seriously rockin'. Lots of drums, lots of bagpipes, lots of Scottish pride. Their performance was full of surprises and action - they jump, spin, and dance around on the stage in a way that engages the audience in the manner of true performers. If you're ever given the chance to see them, don't pass it up!
2. Scottish Heavy Athletics: Ever been curious about the guys who are somehow able to walk across a field carrying 100-pound stones in each hand? Or lobbing logs across said field? Well, my curiosity was satisfied this weekend as we witnessed men trained in the art of Heavy Athletics astound us with their strength and sheer will. Again, something amazing to be witnessed.
3. Haggis-free Scottish Meat Pies: Yum.
4. Bagpipes: Hooray! I love bagpipe music. We heard bagpipes throughout the entire festival. There were several bagpipe bands as well as random bagpipe players being judged in contests. As we left this morning, a piper in full regalia was walking up and down our street, piping us all home.

When we got home, I re-listed the popular Dainty Daisies earrings at the outlet store:

They're popular, cute, and only $2/pair!

Thanks for reading, everyone, and see you next time!
