A new friend, some super fun, and a sneaky peak.

First on the sharing agenda today is some info about my new friend :)
Have you been to Erin's blog?? If not, run don't walk. She is awesome (and is a sucker for caned furniture like I am). Anyway, I am so excited because we got to meet in person today. Yay! She lives in North Carolina but was traveling through my neck of the woods so we planned to meet up. Earlier in the month she had a virtual yard sale on her blog and I purchased some of her {AMAZING} hand poured yummy smelling candles. She suggested that she hand deliver them to me since she would be traveling to SoCal and would practically be driving right by my town.  I quickly said yes and jumped at the opportunity. She is my first official blog friend turned real-life friend and I couldn't be happier with how our visit went. My sister and my kids came along too which was fun. We had a nice chat at a nearby Starbucks, and my new candles smell even better than I thought they would :)
We snapped a quick picture before we parted ways and I'm glad we did (and as you can see, she's nice and tall, and I'm a little shrimp).

She is beautiful, smart, funny, and very sweet! YAY for new friends!!!

Ok next, our SUPER big fun! The OC Fair! Woohoo!!!
I seriously love going to the fair every year. The food, the rides, the games, the people watching. It-is-AWESOMENESS!!!!! Here are some pics for your viewing pleasure :)

(tea cups - barfy)
(bumper boats)
(barfy barf....not too sure what the name of this one is, but BARF).
And I can't forget to show you the large prize that is currently living in the garage because Noah is scared of it in his room when the lights are out. Ha ha! Can you say - Goodwill!!??
Again, I-LOVE-THE-OC FAIR!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!1
If only I remembered to take a picture of my super delicious crepe before I practically swallowed it whole. Mmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmm.

Last but not least, a sneaky peak :)

Wondering what the heck I'm up to?? Come back in a day or so and hopefully there will be a reveal (unless it's a total flop).
Happy Friday people!!!
