Splendid

{One must always ride the Ferris Wheel to experience the full festival effect}

That's the word I choose to describe the past few days. SPLENDID.

The concert??? AHHH-MAZING!!!
Josh Turner sounds even better live.....it was great. I'm still pinching myself to see if I was just dreaming the fact that I went to my first concert and had such an awesome experience.
*ough* I'm such a puny pincher.
He sang some of my favorite songs....2nd row was the perfect place to be....and towards the end I got to stand RIGHT up against the stage as he sang!! I could have touched him!!!

aaahhh, but no worries I'm not that ga ga over him.

( although my eardrums tell me that many other girsl were)

His wife was in the the band with him, and even sang a song with him.

ummmmm, can we say ADORABLE?? And when he hits those low notes???
gah.
Spending 2 days in a row at the Strawberry Festival?
*siiiiiighhhh*
heaven.

ummm, hello!! It is practically mandatory to consume strawberry shortcake and chocolate covered strawberries at the Festival. Seriously, they won't let you out until you do. I of course fully embraced this rule and indulged in some yummm-O treats!!!

After the concert I went on a mission to find me a vendor selling those tasty frozen bananas. I mean, come on, it's fruit. and chocolate. Where in the world could you go wrong with that??? As I was watching(and drooling) the lady carefully dip my banana in chocolate I practically gasped when I saw a humongous tray of SPRINKLES!! I waited, and waited, and then she asked " would you like that rolled in nuts?" --"noooo" I said not taking my eyes off the tray. " well, would you like it with just the chocolate then" ----- " umm, noooo" still bambi eyeing the tray. " okay, then how about sprinkles?" ----" OH YES PLEASE!!!!" and the I pretty much squealed as she rolled and rolled that chocolate covered banana in colorful goodness.

It's raining today.

Perfect for some casual shopping, baking ,and a good book.
