A new trip to the fair. Fyi, I am sappy and
TERRIBLY nostalgic. This is why I love the fair
and anything that remotely reminds me of
old stuff. However, I must say that I am usually
protected by my own denial bubble while at the fair,
choosing to see what I want to see... the cute animals,
the plants and flowers, the 'crafts', the airbrush tent...
and this year, I was apparently not able
to block out the undesirable fair goers.
This is the first year that I have seen the fair as
anything but classy classy.
When did I get so cynical? sad.
Anyway.. of course we revisited the photo booth.
And, despite the man explaining to us that we had to
stay as far away from the camera as possible,
I succeeded in being extremely washed out
and close to the camera, DOMINATING every frame,
and making really ugly faces. oops!
Of all the fair food, the turkey leg totally grossed me
out this year. My beloved turkey leg!
I am obviously at some sort of life crossroads.
Yeehaw still has the best fair paper goods.
And I love this image...
Wouldn't you love a first place ribbon?
I would. I want a wall of ribbons like this. Does Mary
Vican have a wall of ribbons?
and I decided this year that my jam/zuccs/pumpkins/
beets are definitely fair worthy.. next year.
And, I have quasi decided that Ava will be putting the
rabbits in the fair when she is old enough. Cruel?
I don't care.
You know what else I think of when I think of the fair?
40s dresses. AND gingham.
Oh gingham again. I love you, gingham(right now).
If I could just get through Fall Holiday and move
onto Spring, I can capitalize on my new found love of
gingham before I hate it again.
Too bad I am late for work.
Ps, I am not in denial that we had house guests and an
incredibly fun weekend, I am just really failing in the
photo taking dept.
But I am chatty. Very chatty.
