I know, I have been a bad blogger but for good reason! I had an amazing weekend. Too amazing because yesterday I was a pretty sick little girl. I guess it was from all that yummy fair food and lack of sleep!

I hope everyone had a great LONG weekend. Sorry about no dare this week but there was no way I was cutting out quality fair time to get on the net!

Well as I was saying; I had an amazing weekend. It wasn't overly relaxing but it was definitely eventful.

On the Friday night a bunch of us went out for supper to celebrate this lovely girls birthday!

It was a great way too start the evening chatting and chowing down on some yummy food with some great girlfriends!
After supper everyone loaded up and headed to the fair whereas I went into work at my weekend job at the local bar. I bartend every other weekend and I had the short straw and had to work the weekend of the fair! Bleh!

Saturday morning I slept in a bit after a long night at work. Ryan had to drive the big dump truck for a little while. I threw on some clothes and decided to go for a drive with him for the last load. We had a great visit in the truck and stopped for a quick pizza lunch. After we got home we headed downstairs to our new, comfy couches and fell fast asleep! The nap felt great and when I woke up I was ready for a night of work again. This time I wasn't so sad to be going to work because the weather for the fair was awful! Windy, cold and raining! Yuck!

Sunday morning I woke up pretty early and loaded up a truck with our old couches. We drove to Renfrew to drop them off to Ryan's Aunt. We then did groceries, got home, made lunch and again, went for a nap!

ha ha! I know, I know, we nap alot! ha ha But I am glad that we did for a late night at the Fair was the plan. We got ready to go in our wooly's since it was suppose to be a cold night and drove up to the Shawville Fair. Paul Brandt was performing and being the country music fan that I am I was pretty excited to hear him play!! Ryan, not so much.

I was not disappointed! It was great music and while enjoying the entertainment I also got to have my favorite treats, A Beavertail!! YUMMMMMMMY!!!

It was a great show but after it was over so was I. You see the majority of the people that Ryan and I hang out with leave after the show. The beer tent used to be the place to be at the fair. Now, I can't be bothered. I know I sound like an old "fuddy duddy" but I'm just not into parting at the fair anymore. I did take a walk through the tent on Sunday night and almost didn't make it through! The amount of people was scary, there was a cloud of smoke and when I stopped to give my cousin a hug, I pretty much got groped! Like I said, just not my scene anymore. But that's O.k because after two nights of working at Gavan's, I was ready for bed anyways!

Monday morning I woke up to a beautiful, warm, sunny day, perfect for the demolition derby!! We got all packed up and set out to Shawville early to get front row seats! The more we drove, the colder and cloudier it got. When we got to the fair grounds we were there for less then an hour and it started to rain!!

We decided to stay and watch our friends in the derby anyways. It was cold, wet and miserable but still a great show. All the boys (Kyle, Adam and Wiggins) did great and here are some pictures of the before and after.

Overall, it was a great fair! Even though I didn't get to go all the day's I normally do, it was still a great time. Shawville fair is the official last party of the summer and so now to me, it is officially fall!!

How was your long weekend?

I hope everyone is having a great week!


  1. i am so glad you got a picture of my poor car...the first green and white one - number 77 - that used to be MY first "purchased" vehicle, which I actually just paid off and now it's was actually pretty sad to see it...the main reason because it was still road safe and driveable...and now its just a mangled mess of metal :(
    I hear ya on the fair scene and not being into it anymore, we were home early every night, not my thing anymore and I mean it was sooo cold and damp most nights...oh well - its sad to see the fair gone but now I get to decorate for FALL...woo hoo!

  2. im so glad you had such a fun weekend. I know ive never mentioned this before but you look SO MUCH like a friend of mine. Honestly if she didnt already have a twin sister (not identical) i would say you were separated at birth. It's bizarre.

  3. Stacy- Your car did soooo good in the derby, ha ha you should be proud! Just think how much damage it could have taken! I hear ya on the fall stuff, let's get decorating!!

    ENS- ha ha I always wished I had a sister...maybe I have a twin sister in this world! :-) Hope you have a great weekend! xo

  4. Yeah!!! I love fair time and seeing as though I'm a week late in reading this, I sure hope you feel better!!!
