Aloha Friday!

It's been a while since I've done Aloha Friday, so I thought I'd go for it again this week.

This weekend is the start of Borrego Days! This is a HUGE event here in town. It technically started last week, with a town clean-up. Big Sis went, since I was out of town. Last night, Huell Howser from PBS' California Gold was at our Performing Arts Center for a meet-and-greet. It was fun! Very informative and educational. Big Sis went with me was was somewhat bored. But, she got her pic taken with Huell, which Grandma will get a kick out of.

Today is a minimum day for the kids, since the festivities kick off tonight. There's even a Miss Borrego Pageant tonight, where several Senior Girls compete for the much-coveted title of Miss Borrego. Tomorrow is the parade, which Big Sis will participate in, dressed as Cinderella. The theme is "What I want to do in the Future" or something like that, and she wanted to go as a doctor, but that was last year's costume. So I told her to wear her Cindy costume, and tell the principal that she wants to work at Disney while she went to college to be a doctor. HAHA. Clever mom, huh?

So, my Aloha Friday question is this:

What do you enjoy most about fairs? Your local fair, county fair, or state fair, what's your favorite thing?

I don't know what to expect...rides? Funnel cake? I have NO it's hard for me to get super excited. But, I'll post a FULL report on Monday!

Also, head over to Nothing But PURPLE for a chance to win Mabel Labels. I won some from MomDot over the summer, and they are AWESOME little labels!


  1. we got married at our fair! LOL! So when we go I have lots of fun memories! I also really love the food!

  2. No Way Dee! Interesting!!! I love, love love, the funnel cakes and we are going to the fair TOMORROW!

  3. Ditto the funnel cakes! Mmm...

    Happy Aloha Friday!

  4. The best part of our fair is the animals. I never realized this until we took the kids for the first time this summer. Anytime we saw a cow Dude would just bust out laughing like it was the funniest thing he'd ever seen (coulda been, he's only 1)!

  5. The rides make me queasy, so I just go for the food now. Anything on a stick. LOVE FUNNEL CAKES! Used to love candy apples until I had a few root canals, now I just press my face against the glass and drool at them. lol

  6. Hands down without a doubt my favorite thing about fairs, the FOOD!!!!

  7. I am alllllll about the food at a fair!

  8. I have not been to too many fairs. Most are not very close to where we are. The few times I went the fun food were neat, but everything is just so $$ for my taste.

  9. My favorite thing about the fair is the food!


  10. Thanks. :)

    We did the court house marriage. I'm really hoping we can do something traditional on our 5th anniversary
