Weekly Weekend Update - The Fair

Every year my family heads to the Fair. Usually we wear T-shirts or tank tops. This year we wore layers and layers of clothes with warm boots. I can't believe how cold it is here. Does anybody ever experience a true Fall anymore? It doesn't seem like it.

My favorite part of the fair is eating all of the food. LOVE IT ALL. This year I had:
-Cheese on a Stick
-Potato Swirl
-Chicken tenders on a stick
-Fried Peaches
-Fried Pickles
-Fried Apple Straws with Carmel dipping sauce

My favorite was of course the cheese on a stick, what is better than fried cheese?!? Friend Pickles is a close second.

Here are some pics from the fair:

My youngest sister:I should have taken my jacket off in these next 2 pictures:As usual we had a great time at the fair!

Luke and I stayed the night with my family and then spent Saturday hanging out.

I had my sister cut my hair because these days it seems that I can't be around her without wanting to change my hair some. She gave me a bit of bangs and made my hair a little bit more choppy not a big change but just enough:

Have I mentioned that I love having a hair stylist in my family?!?!

So that was our weekend! Another fast paced one!

What is your favorite fair food?

Yeah, why didn't funnel cakes make an apperance on your list?! I love funnel cakes!

P.S. I think you meant fried pickles not friend pickles. :) I got a good laugh out of it anyhow, which I really needed/

Shoshanah said...

I think the ones I'd most want to try would be the fried peaches or the fried apples with caramel.

Brown Girl said...

I love fried pickles, yum. We always order them when they are on the menu. Love the new hair cut, cute!

The Fair is so creative!

Shannon said...

I love your hair. I wish I had a stylist in the family. I hate making hair appointments and I'm ready for a change!

I love fried pickles - whenever they're on the menu, we order them! But, if going to the fair, we must get a funnel cake!!

OH -- FAIR FOOD! I love it all -- especially fried cheese and funnel cakes. Our state fair also has these little mini chocolate chip cookies that come all warm and melty in a cup.

Thanks a lot, I'm drooling just thinking about it ;)

Lauren said...

Mmmm...I love fair food! I would have to say that my favorite is a footlong corn dog (the regular ones just don't do! Plus I think I could eat an entire bag of kettle korn in one sitting if I completely lacked self control!

Sweet Simplicity said...

We didn't end up going to the fair. Ty had to work late every night and then we decided it was too cold and wet to go. I'm so sad that we missed out on all the food. We were both craving a corn dog yesterday, but not enough to get out and get one. haha!

Lindsey said...
