State Fair

Last night I went to the state fair. It was one dollar ride day and kid's day so there were a lot of mocosos (snotty nose kids) running around. Oh yes, and junior gangsters.  We knew it would be an eat-o-thon since the fair has such a variety of food choices. They also lowered their prices last year because no one was going anymore. First thing we ate: friend cream cheese and cheese on a stick from Hot Dog on a Stick which we could have gotten from the mall but oh well. After some Dippin' Dots, it was officially time to put our lives in some carnies' hands.

After our aerial view the worst was confirmed, yup, no log ride. What kind of show are they running here?

"Shoes on a Gondola." I thrifted these for 3.99! They were a mess, so put them in my washing macheeene with bleach. They still have a little ink stain but I think its cute. It's like, "a squids eye was here." 

Look I some lady won a fish! She gave it to me cause she didn't want it. 

True love buys you a $6 something onion blossom you don't eat. It lacked seasoning and had too much grease.

Moral: True love feeds you but strangers give you pets,


  1. LOL @ that last line!!! Loved your pics chica.

  2. hahaha junior gangster made me laugh! i love your parrot earrings :) it looks like so much fun, they don't have anything like that in london! sucks! looks so fun, without the snotty nosed kids ofc ;) xxx

  3. Looks like so much fun! I love your colorful head scarf and earrings ...and LOL to your comment today, and it's not far off from the project I am working on at the moment!!!

  4. I love fairs ,but the weather is too hot for my migraine self.especially the food, yeah if they dont season my food , I wont eat it. como aqui no tienen sason. cute ink shoes and tu novio cute hat. My dad always said that cholos will only buy you una hamburgesa de un dollar.

  10. Ooo,that looks fun! I'd love to go to a State Fair.We rarely have anything like that,and never as cheesey if we do! Some of that food sounds painful,though.I wonder if the guy blowing chunks had been eating it?!

  11. I'm obsessing over your earrings and sunglasses. You look so cute! And I looove fairs. I went last night but looks like you had better food than me! I only got to have a spiral potato with cheese, fried oreo sundae and fried pickles. I was going for more but all the food booths closed. I was so sad!
