The Fair Rocked

God Bless Texas. The fair was great. Robin and I had a great time, but the highlight was watching our friend Tara belt out some country hits as she filled in brilliantly for her mom's band, Lantana. I'll take you through the day!

We started taking a ride on the Texas Star. 5 minute wait, not $14 like I thought. Nice view. Great way to start our afternoon of eatin'.

First food stop: corn dog. The photo is awful. The corn dog was amazing.

Next we walked around, people-watching at its finest, shopped, and of course, hit up the fried butter. Robin and I shared the garlic flavor (tasted just like garlic bread) and I got a fried Elvis (PB, honey, and bananas, of course). Woo hoo! The fried Elvis was a bit much, but nonetheless...fried.

Check out my inpulse-bought orange heart-shaped sunglasses!

Then I met Selena Gomez...

We said "Howdy" to Big Tex...

And then I won a giant banana!

And then ate a chocolate-covered frozen one. YUM!

What a delicious time. Robin, hope you enjoyed your first visit to the fair.

What did y'all eat there?

When in doubt, fry it!

Let's Put The Fry in Friday

Happy Friday from Texas! It's fall and I'm hungry and that means one thing: State Fair of Texas time! I can't wait to get some corn dog action (two junk food posts in two days-even I am impressed slashed grossed out by that) up in this. Luckily, my co-worker Glenn, put up this handy State Fair food rating point system.

Fried banana pudding? Have mercy!

My writer partner Robin and I are headed out now. Current temperature in Dallas: a perfect 74 degrees. And a fair-time bonus in '09: AAAD Reader and our co-worker Tara will be singing live on stage all weekend. Can't wait to support her. Ooh, I better plan ahead and leave two free hands to applaud. But where will I put my fried butter then? What a pickle. (Do they have fried pickles? I effing murder those.)

Updates and photos to come.

Are These Awesome?

Because I am kinda thinking yes. There's not much more that my mouth loves hugging more than a soft pretzel. Check out these Keep Pretzel Laceups over at Urban. I think I have to have them.

Have you seen any good sneakers lately? It's time for some new ones for moi.

Double-knot for safety!
