Tonight was awesome. Chris and I went to the OC Fair. It is something I have never liked because in my mind it has always been a dirty, trashy, everything is fried place. Two years ago Chris "surprised" me one date night by taking me to the fair. He had never been and I always begged him not to go because I hated it. We ended up having a pretty good time. All week I've been dying to go to see the hypnotist who is awesome so I dragged him with me tonight. We ended up having a great time and walked around for 4 hours. Trust me, we could have used 4 more hours. We shared a beef brisket sandwich, a blooming onion, sweet tea and a funnel cake.

All the BBQ, country music and animals got me so excited. I guess after tonight I am a fan of the fair, but it's still ghetto!

And then we sucked out the old volcano rock and put in this fire glass fr
