    I absolutely love the Thrifty Northwest mom!!! It is the only site of this
    kind that I have found that I subscribe to. Unfortunately I live in SC and
    a lot of the weekend roundup stuff doesnt apply. Can you recommend a blog/
    site tht is based in the SE US?
    Thank you and thanks for the Thrifty Northwet Mom,
    Katie Gerweck

    The Festival of Family Farms is a wonderful fall event in the Skagit Valley this coming weekend-Oct 6&7. Have a hands-on-experience learning what it takes to run a farm, from growing crops to feeding animals. It is an opportunity to talk to your farmers and follow your food from the fields to the table.Lots of kids activities. Free admission and parking! See http://www.festivaloffamilyfarms.com/

      Awesome thanks Laura! I had the Renton festival in from before, but I couldn’t find any new info for them & thought I saw something saying it was cancelled. I’ll check out the Fairy Festival, too, to put that info in there. We’re actually going to be up in Seattle that day & might have to check it out as I have fairy fans in my house. :)

      Hi Kirsta – yes we have gone there the last couple of years and got a review up on the blog. Will try to get that posted again this year and add it to the list.

      Thanks – Sia
