State Fair of Virginia

 I am cheating a little bit today!  I have been really busy with many projects, that I haven't had much time to blog.  I am involved in a Christmas Giveaway and am working my fingers to the bone to get some sewing done for it.  I am excited about it, but not quit ready to share what I am making.  I will post about it when the time is right!
So I decided  I want to share my experience at the State Fair of Virginia.   It is pertinent to this blog, not only because it is about me and this blog is about me, but also because I got to meet a blogging friend.
Ann and I have been blog friends for over a year.  She and I have created a nice friendship.  When we moved to VA, I found out she was only a couple of hours away from us.  We decided to use the State Fair as a meeting point! 
So here you go - The State Fair of Virginia!
We were able to get to the fair before the crowds got there!

I had such a good time! I am not a ride person, they make me ill. I do enjoy watching others while they partake!
One of my favorite things about the fair is the animals!
Love these little pigs!
This little guy was very curious and got right up to the camera
The goats are so cute!
At one time we owned 8 chickens. I miss them so much!
Of course, one of the best things about a fair is the food. I ate a gyro sandwich and for desert, I had fried Reese Peanut Butter Cups and Fried Oreo Cookies! Actually, I brought the Fried Oreo Cookies home. They are very rich and you can't eat to much of this type of food!

Fried Oreos!
Fried Reese Peanut Butter Cups!
I have been blogging for a few years on another site, and it is there, that I met my friend Ann. She and I were finally able to meet up and speak with each other face to face! I loved that. Sorry about the photo - I am still figuring my camera out!
My friend Ann and I!
We spent the day looking at quilts and other handcrafts, eating food that would normally not be a part of our diet, and enjoying the animals. It was a good day! Hope you had a wonderful day also! Thanks for stopping by.
Pin It Now!

Looks like it was a very fun day! Those fried cookies look awfully sweet, I don't know how some people eat them!
Such adorable little animals =D

Great post about a fun day. So glad we got to meet in person. I'll have to "borrow" that picture of us, and post it as well!

How fun to have a meetup! Looks like a great day. Deep fried Reese's and Oreos, oh my. I'd have been all over them in the "good old days."

Fairs are fun in themselves, and getting to meet a blogfriend, icing on the cake! Or should I say, deep-fried-Reese's on the cake :)
