I posted this a few years ago. Let’s see if I can’t hit ten this summer.

So jealous! I want to go to the fair so badly! Sorry you didn’t get to see the Beach Boys. :(

Ah well, it was my choice not to stay and she backed me up so it’s not like it was bitterly forced upon us. (I would totally go to the fair with you if you were able to go!)

So I checked with the property management company about when they sent the Riot Act letter to the awful neighbors. They sent it Monday night, so they should have gotten it today. 

Tonight - I shouldn’t get my hopes up, especially as they’ve only lived there a few months, since April, I think - but they appear to be loading up their van.

That’s awesome! State fairs are my favorite. I hope you had a lot of insane food served on sticks.

Bestie had a corn dog (her first one!) so I’ll let that cover for me. I did get a big sloppy funnel cake with apple topping, though!

Hope you had some cotton candy and something deep-fried! Maybe picked up some spin art.

I had a cheeseburger, a funnel cake with apple topping (yummm) and one of those huge iced teas. Good stuff! No time for fried pickles though, boo. :( Maybe at the Pumpkin Show. My bestie got the $7 body pillow full of cotton candy, though!
