$60 Fair Day...A Heart Attack Waiting to Happen

I have been traveling a lot for work recently. When I go on a weekend recruiting trip I get a comp day during the week. When I got home from my trip to Tennessee Cody and I decided to spend a day together at the fair.  We went on a Tuesday in the morning right after it had rained so there was no one there.  It was GREAT! The day started by us walking up to the entrance where we were pleasantly surprised to read that this was "The Greatest Carnival in the World"...Who knew???? So we tried to take some pictures of the sign


Cody was taking a picture of just the sign but I literally jumped in the picture :)

We had a really good time walking around and just enjoying each other but there was one common theme...

EVERYTHING WAS FRIED!!!!!!!

But the good news is they were selling these INCREDABLE work out machines.  The sales lady told us that 15 minutes on one of these bad boys was equivalent to an hour on the treadmill!!!! Not to mention that the NFL, NBA, and Collegiate teams have been using these for YEARS and they have just been released to the public.  The wonderful thing is you just stand on them and the vibrations they release cause your muscles to contract, and we all know that contracting muscles = fat and weight loss right?!?! Here it is and it can be all yours for $2,500

I wanted to tell the lady that the only thing that worked on that dumb machine was the bands, and you would have to be crazy to spend $2,500 for a bicep curl machine! What's crazy is people were actually buying them!!!! Which brings me to our next discovery

I almost peed my pants upon reading this sign!

The rest of the time was really fun.  We ate some interesting stuff.  Cody had a MASSIVE burrito, and I had a chicken breast and some sweet potato fries.  We finished it off with a fried oreo.  We both agreed that we liked the oreo, but not the fried stuff around it (kinda defeats the point!)

It was so great to spend so much time together.  I feel truly blessed to have such an amazing best friend for my husband.  He is so much fun, and I am so thankful that I get to spend every day with him!
