Off to the State Fair!

August 20, 2011

Today is a big day.

Today I am going to my first ever STATE FAIR!!!!!

Illinois State Fair

Haha, okay, okay. I know this is completely ridiculous, but I’ve always wanted to go to a state fair and I’ve never been! I’ve been to a few county fairs and rodeos, but not a state fair! So this morning my brother and I are headed down to Springfield, IL for the Illinois State Fair. My sister-in-law, Lauren, was supposed to come but she’s not feeling so good. 😦 So she’ll be home hanging with Molly (their new puppy) who I haven’t seen in a week! I hope she’s not too big!


My brother and I have a goal of finding the most interesting thing we can that’s been fried…. This could get scary!


One thing I’ve realized about blogger is that I can’t comment back on your comments! It drives me absolutely crazy! So here are my shout-outs to a few readers that I’ve been wanting to respond to!

Aria:  if you want to start a blog, then go for it! Just be committed! You have to do it for yourself and because you think it’s fun, that way if it is a flop, then oh well! You enjoyed it!

Kelsey: I love being a nerd! I am obsessed with reading and constantly looking things up online that interest me! Wanting more knowledge is a great attribute! And that’s great that you have such a good best friend, my friends inspire me all the time! I’m lucky to have such interesting and brave women in my life!

Lexi: The snoopy cup was from Target dollar spot a few years ago! I snagged one for my mom and one for myself because she LOVES snoopy!

Whatilikeaboutfood: maybe try adding some sweetener to your smoothie? I add Truvia which is a brand of stevia all natural sweetener. You can also use any other sweetener or honey or agave. Or maybe start out with less spniach and see how that tastes? Also, my friend was at Chez Elle the day you recommended it! I’ve never been but now it’s on my KC list!

Kiah: I’m glad you enjoy it! Be sure to send me an e-mail at if there are any topics you’d like to read about!

That’s all I have time for now, gotta go get ready for the fair!

What is the weirdest thing you’ve ever heard of deep fried and what’s the weirdest thing you’ve ever tried deep fried?

    Glad I could help, you might try just one clove of garlic in that hummus recipe if you don't like things really garlicky. Can't wait to try out your tips for spinach smoothies, I really want to add in some greens! And I think I have heard of deep fried sticks of butter? Eeek. Weirdest but really delicious thing I have tried deep fried was squash blossoms. Yummm.

    The fair sounds like so much fun! We have a county fair, with a big to do on the fried foods too. It's fun to walk around for a day, but I couldn't do it every day haha. So sorry that Blogger doesn't let you comment. Maybe talk to some of the other bloggers using Blogger (Sarena @The Non Dairy Queen comes to mind, for me) and see how they do it? I know some of them have been able to respond to comments before. Thanks for the the tip on the Snoopy cup..LOVE the Snoopster 🙂

    Ahh I love the fair!! I bet that was so much fun! I haven't had many odd deep fried things other than oreos..but I really didn't care much for them. I expected them to taste more like oreos but they tasted really bland for some reason. Maybe it was just that particular batch, I don't know.

    Hi! I love state fairs! They are super fun. I'm not a fan of the deep fried stuff cause it scares me, but I will eat an entire bag of kettle corn. And then buy more to take home. I just found your blog and love it- I especially loved reading about Neville's big day out. (:
