Carnies, Freaks and Texans. Need I Say More?

These are some shots using my not-as-cool-as-the-Nikon-D40-Casio-Exlim-pocket-rocket from the sticky, icky, fabulous State Fair of Texas 2008.
These people scare me...
Big Tex scares me.
Spot the alien goat. He will eat your face.
Fair food is...gross. Fried Cheese Curds? Seriously?
What, exactly, makes a banana crazy? And how can I get one?
Allie knows how to do fair food. In style. Rock that Corny Dog, Toddler!And what is the fair without sand sculpture. The fair is so weird.
Carousels, however, are amazing...
Goodnight Dallas!

Turning 30 is... Fun!

Okay, I have been slacking on here in a major way. Let's just say I have had other things going on in my life and now I am ready to catch everyone up! Here we go...
I turned the dreaded 30 on August 21st and had a crazy bash at the Nylo (a boutique hotel in Plano) to celebrate!

There were drinks with cousins and friends!

There was pool!

There were egg-shaped swinging chairs!

And Square-O shaped chairs! This place likes chairs...

Even the elusive Taylor came out to celebrate!
A portion of the Original Plano Gangstas... Or something like that.
Crystal is not a Plano Gangsta, but I like this picture, so it stays!

It was a fantastic array of family and friends that made my 30th year a truly joyous event! After the party in our reserved area in the bar...
...we retired to the room upstairs for some amazing(ly silly) photo ops. These are just from my camera. I think there were a total of three snapping away at our ridiculousness in the room...but only the stupidest ones of me & Michelle made it to this page for your enjoyment since we share the type of bond after being BFFs for an insane amount of time! I will leave it to you, dear reader, to caption.
What happened after this was me making my brother take me to the Taco Bell drive-thru for a bean burrito since I hadn't eaten anything all night. Oops! And then I think we watch TV in the room and he bailed as soon as he could. Thanks Tay!
