Before I begin this clearly going to be fabulous blog-I must tell you. I received the greatest compliment on my vlog yesterday. Christy@ Lifttorun (who just ran a 20k trial run! W00t w00t!) said the following:
Um. I don’t know if you guys know but I have a weird and I mean weird obsession with eyebrows. I will judge you if they aren’t groomed and I don’t roll with any of the following, unibrows, shaved brows, penciled brows (with no legitly no hairs), super pointy, super flat. We all have our jives, some people are butt people, some people like legs…I judge for the brows. No really. But anyways.
Each of my blogging besties has great eyebrows (don’t worry…totally scoped it out.).
Today, I actually went to the big Strawberry Festival with my mom. She had to write an article for the base paper (she is a military newspaper editor) We had a ton of fun like we always do. It is kind of creepers how close I am with my parents. It was terribly hot but I mean strawberries are worth it. Well the strawberry shortcake was worth it most certainly but we will get to that later.
Although it is called the strawberry festival, it is more of a fair type event. There are crafters, vendors, lots of food, amusement rides, and other random good times.
They always have delicious greasy crabcakes. Which are some of my favorite.
Can I have five. k, thanks.
No really. I'll take them all. Funny story, I told the man I had a blog and he was rambling off for five minutes and wanted me to capture every angle of the crabcakes.
Chuck this is for you. I think we could both take this down?
The best part, however, was the strawberry shortcake.
Mom got the small without ice-cream.
I don’t roll that way and got the extra large. You can’t see the ice-cream because it is hidden under the whip cream.
Why I'm making that face...god knows...
I also got a chalice of champions. Who doesn’t like a metal chalice?
I think I refilled this thing like 200 times.
We walked around for ages and waited for the military helicopters to land. While my mom was writing about the military firetrucks there, I made the firemen take my photo on their truck. I may quit school and become a firewoman.
And I'll wear this outfit clearly.
And then the helicopter landed. It was actually terrifying. I don’t know about you, but helicopters don’t normally land near me but it was pretty intense.
It was quite the adventure and with quite the nomtastic food. So if you ever come see me down here we have a Strawberry festival, blueberry and even peach.
Why they don’t have a pancake festival really blows my mind.
Question for you:
1. Are there big festivals where you live? Do you go?
