Funnel Cakes, Ferris Wheels & Fedoras


Friday was our five year dating anniversary and also the first Friday since Chris got back, so we made a date out of it and headed to the 50th state fair! 





What is it about fried dough and sugar that makes me just go crazy??









We rode a bunch of fun rides-- my favorite had to be the swings. We also rode on the Sizzler-- you know, the ride that spins you around in circles at outrageous speeds? Yeah, that was the fastest Sizzler I've ever been on. Chris and I were wondering if it was malfunctioning because the skin was pretty much peeling off our faces. 

We had a blast though and I have to say, nothing beats a date night with the love of my life. I'm gonna be gushy on here for a while, just as a warning. It's just so good to have him home.
