Our Weekend | NC State Fair

I think the North Carolina State Fair is by far my favorite date night activity. Plus, it makes it extra special that it only comes around once a year. Brian and I have been going every year since we started dating in 2006. He used to volunteer at the Cheerwine Booth (doesn't get much more Southern than that!) and I would visit and swoon. :) We actually don't ride any of the rides, but opt to sample a LOT of fried food (deep fried Snickers anyone?), admire the blue ribbon blooms, take a look at the very talented students' artwork, and visit the cutest, fuzziest baby chicks where I try to convince Brian (unsuccessfully) that we need to take some of them home with us. It is the best. Here are a few photos from this year.
