The OC Fair

Let me start this off by stating that I am an LA County Fair kind of girl. I go multiple times every year during its run and hold A LOT of favoritism towards it. But yesterday, I had the opportunity to go to the OC Fair for the first time and I was pleasantly surprised! First of all, the deals were just incredible! I only spent a total of $25!

$4 round trip bus fare
$3 admission
$2 crepe sample
$2 deep-fried oreos
$2 corn on the cob
$2 smoothie sample
$10 hot dog - I could've lived off of all of the $2 food deals, but I LOVE Pink's hot dogs!

So yes, I pretty much ate my way through the entire fair and it was amazing! But besides that, I really enjoyed all of the exhibits, particularly their enormous photography gallery (sorry LA county, but they've got you beat on this one), all of the well-decorated (and mouth-watering) food displays, and their gorgeous flower collections. The OC Fair runs until August 10th, so if you get the chance to go I'd highly recommend taking the OC Fair Express to save on money (and gas!). Enjoy all of those deep-fried goodies! :)

Wahkeena Falls

All I can say is that I was not ready for this green and white wonderland.

A Saturday Farmer's Market

I accidentally found a farmer's market on the way to the movies yesterday morning. How fortunate that I happened to have my camera with me!

Sidecar Doughnuts

This morning I made my first trip out to Sidecar Doughnuts in Costa Mesa. They have some of the most unique and delicious flavors that I've ever tasted! I'm kicking myself for not visiting sooner. I picked up a Huckleberry, Mexican Chocolate, and Butter & Salt doughnut and savored each one. Can't wait to try more of their flavors!

Flower Studies: Peonies

Peonies make me think of Paris. I want to spend an entire month there someday. I can see myself waking up in a room overlooking the Siene, strolling down to the local market, and picking up a fresh bouquet of peonies.
