Reason #1,084,642 why I heart fall...

Pumpkining (It's my blog, I'll make up words if I want to.)

State Fair Going
On the last day of the fair we finally found the time to take a break and enjoy the fabulousness that is the NC State Fair. Now you see I am not a fan of crowds but for one day of each year: fair day. There is no better place to people watch whilst eating a deep fried candy bar (yes, I tried a milky-way) whilst mullet hunting (best venue ever. aggressive level was red alert) whilst listening to the sweet sounds of the demolition derby roaring above twangs of blue grass, whilst taking in a pumpkin so large that if you put it on rims, Cinderella would certainly ride in style, whilst ogling the baby pigs, goats, cows, chicks, ducks, etc.
Reason #1,084,643 why my husband hearts the State Fair: the other white meat.
Porkfest 2010

Pork #1: Country Ham Biscuit

Pork #2 & #3 aka "Look mom, 2 hands!"
BBQ Sandwich & Red Hotdog (gag)


Must take a break for our greens you know ...
(Not pictured: Pork #4 Liver Pudding sample)



Pork #5: Deep Fried Pork Chop (on a stick, naturally)

Now that we've officially blown our caloric & sodium intakes for the year, it's time for a ride on the Ferris wheel!

Records were broken, over 1,000,000 fair goers this year!


We even won a new "friend" for Pete ... a monster!

That is some serious pork love. I have never seen a red hot dog before, and it's a little scary.
