State Fair of Texas virginity...consider it gone.
Fried tamale ball virginity...also missing.
Fall weather in Texas...definitely absent.
While all you kids up north were skirtin' around pumpkin patches in scarves, sipping on your PSL (pumpkin spice lattes for anyone in the non-blogger world) this weekend, us Texan folk (ahem...me, the Beau and my Aunt Mary) were sweating our hoohas off at the State Fair of Texas.
Yes. It was hot. (85 degrees and all...)
Yes. I ate fried tamale balls. (NOT on my diet but they were DE-LISH.)
And yes. We had a FABULOUS time!
How the hay have I gone my entire Texan life without going to the State Fair of Texas?? I'm really starting to question my Southerness...
Anywho...I must say...for a first-timer...I would highly recommend the petting zoo (DUH!), the wine garden (for obvious reasons), the Doberman Show (Yes. A doberman show.) and the Birds of the World Show. I'm not a huge carnival person so I can't speak for the rides but I did enjoy taking a picture of the infamous ferris wheel every time in was even close to being in my peripheral vision.
Candy apples, sweet tea and fried food. LOTS of fried food. If you've never been to the Lonestar State, you're really missing out! ;)
