Sometimes you feel like a NUT....

especially at the Central Florida Peanut Festival!

We had the BEST time at this festival!

26Oct-1

There was FUN for everyone!

I even stopped to get feathers in my hair!

This sweet lady put them in...they’re kind of flying out of the side of my hair! It was windy!

Can you see the feathers flying here?

I bought this string of turquoise for $3, the boat brooch for $1...feathers were $5!!! I was already wearing a necklace with beads and an arrowhead and two pairs of earrings! By the end of the day I started looking like a gypsy...or a NUT!

Looks like you guys had lots of fun!!! I'll take the peanuts AND the popcorn! I'm still not sure about the feathers, but they look good on you!!! :))

Vee said...

You look just great! I would go for both peanuts and popcorn and I'd be too shy for the feathers, though I think they look charming. Looks like a beautiful and very pleasant day!

Jennifer Gail said...

You look so cute. I am giddy you got some feathers in your hair. Mine are still in too after a month or so. I even color my hair with them, but I wrap them in foil as they will turn the dye color. Peanut festival looked fun.

Char said...

You are a cutie patootie. What fun for all. I would love both the peanuts and the popcorn. I just love kettle corn, all salty and sweet, yum!

There is something about an outdoor festival that just makes you want to paint your face or put feathers in your hair. It's all fun. I love boiled peanuts especially the green peanuts...yumm!

Looks like fun! I'll take a few cups of boiled peanuts! I'll have to catch this festival next year.

Kim K. said...

What a lovely way to spend the day! Peanuts and popcorn are favorite snacks at our house. Especially during baseball season. I love the feathers. I can't believe you only paid $5. My daughter's was $12 and in the salons they are closer to $15. Good for you! How fun!!

michelle said...

How fun and you look adorable with the feathers! I love peanuts and will take a few of the boiled ones please. :)
Love the turquoise beads too, they are pretty.
Enjoy your day!

That looks like a fun day.

It's Just Dottie said...

You are just too cute!!!!

Wanda said...

Peanuts - and I'll have mine boiled, please. I never heard of boiled peanuts until I lived in Florida. But now that I travel to China so much for work, I find that boiled peanuts are not unique to FL.
Love your feathers. I don;t think you look like a 'nut' at all. You look just precious! Wanda in Edmonton

Glenda/MidSouth said...

Looks like a fun time - Thanks for sharing your day with us. I will have a little popcorn please. :)

Tina said...

OK, first let me just say I love kettle corn!!! Not to keen on boiled peanuts though. You guys looked like you had a great time. Your title reminded me of the almond joy/mound commercials.....LOL.

hootnonny said...

Looks like a lot of fun in the sun! As a South Georgia peach, I'd take the peanuts, but would prefer them boiled!

Shelley said...

Looks like it was a fun time....my daughter was just telling me a day or so ago about how it was the style to have feathers weaved into your hair now....So I guess you are styling now :) Blessings Diane

Maya @ Completely Coastal said...

I'll have the peanuts! Do they grow in FL?! You seem to be goin' with the flow..., feathers and all!

Betsy said...

This looks like my kind of fun! I've noticed that feathers are a popular hair technique these days. It looks good on you!

Ames said...

Well that looks like a nice day in the country. And I love animals and pea-nuts and kettle corn too!~Ames

Jann Olson said...

Hey girl, you are really stylin it with that feather. Keepin up with the teens I might say. Darn, do I have to choose? I'd like a little popcorn with my peanuts. Looks like so much fun. Love the darling mini horse.
