iowa state fair.

I can’t believe we ate so much.

[J] & I attended the iowa state fair yesterday. it was a new experience for both of us. there is so much hype around this event. especially the food. crazy new fried items on a stick every single year, advertised all over the news. so we had to find out why everyone was ranting & raving. and find out we did ..

we were there for about 9 hours. and we ate approximately 4 days worth of food. maybe more. 

[I will be going to the gym and eating only green vegetables today].

fried tacos + strawberry margaritas. bacon-wrapped little smokies on-a-stick. fried brownie on a stick. of course, some iowa craft beer. and a brat-corn-dog. fried oreos.

      it’s probably good for your health that you don’t. I don’t even want to think about the amount of calories I consumed, between the fried foods & the alcohol. yikes! but I must admit .. it was fun. & a “treat”. literally.

    Chelsea, this post is excellent and making me wish I was in Iowa for the fair this year! So many great memories with 4-H growing up at the Iowa State Fair. Next year you’ll have to have the lemonade, it’s an Iowa State Fair staple.

    OMG it all looks so bad but SO GOOD! I went to the Minnesota State Fair once when I was younger and it was a blast! I definitely would go back again someday…there’s nothing like that in Massachusetts!
