As we mentioned yesterday, Brian and I made a trip out to Homer Glen, IL (with the rest of the West clan) for the annual Homer Harvest Days. Why, you ask? Because we’re not couch potatoes, dammit! (I have to keep reminding myself.) But the real reason was to check out the band we might have at our wedding. More on that later! And somewhere between dragging myself out of bed on a rainy Saturday morning for a 1 1/2 hour drive out of the city and plopping my tired rear on the couch for an Angry Birds marathon, we had quite a bit of fun. Old school fun. Like, outside. With other people.

Well, it was a pretty eventful weekend for us. Not only did we head out of the city to catch some bluegrass and corndogs at the Homer Harvest Days festival on Saturday, we also exhausted ourselves at the Renegade Handmade craft fair on Sunday. We’ve got so much to share with all of you, but we’ll need a day to recover from all the excitement and slight sunburn. Once we rest up, we’ll have a recap of all our crafty favorites from renegade, a report on the state of the harvest, and everything in between!
