My first full year of video, and what a lovely year it was, too.

Tulsa State Fair, 2015

I’ve gotten a bit behind of sharing stuff here. During my 30 before 30 I had little calendar alerts set up to remind me, I guess I need to do that again!

On October 7th we went to the Tulsa State Fair.

I shot some video this year:

& took lots of photos:

Golly!

I want to thank everyone for the sweet compliments and comments on my blog post that made Freshly Pressed! It was quite a wonderful surprise and more traffic than my little blog has ever met with, I felt a bit overwhelmed, but very grateful! Thank you so very much!

Tulsa State Fair, Friday, October 7.

I went out the state fair one last time with my mom, Jan, and my brother, Paul. We try to go together for an afternoon every year, it’s one of my favorite ways to spend time with my family.

Tulsa State Fair,  you guys! It’s like a great big cotton candy covered party to kickoff the autumnal goodtimes.

We went again on Saturday, but I’m still sorting through the photos! Expect another post soon, and go to the fair if you’re in town! :)

Tad’s Bodacious Burritos

Being a mildly lactose intolerant vegetarian at a State Fair is tough, vegan even tougher, but for the past several years we have been lucky enough to enjoy as our main meal of the day these Spinach & Black Bean Burritos (hold the cheese & ranch sauce) from Tad’s Bodacious Burritos, located on the median by the livestock arena. I will admit that I delve into the dairy at the state fair, I also have a soda or two, things that I don’t do often, but cheese is one of my biggest enemies and for some reason desserts are kind to me,  maybe it’s psychological, needless to say, I followed my vegan(-ish, I hesitate to call anything at the state fair truly vegan, if you’re particularly strict about it at all) burrito up with a very not vegan caramel apple.

Because it’s a school night, and the hours are quite short, we always leave before the pageant ends, and don’t see who won until the following year. Such suspense!

We’ll return to the fair on Saturday because there’s so much to do, see and eat (onion blossoms, apple fritters, and funnel cake are on my list, as well as another burrito) that we could not possibly fit it into one short evening. Saturday has another of my favorite attractions, the sugar art show. We get to stand in a long and confusing line and look at practically inedible delights!
