Nick, Kristen, Whitney, and I kicked off our 2016 fair season with a two and a half hour drive around the fairgrounds, followed by a trip to two different park and rides, where we parked street side and squeezed onto a full shuttle. [insert not pleased face]
Three hours after our intended arrival time, the food marathon began! We also took a trip through the Miracle of Birth Center (baby goats and lambs and stinky pigs!), got prime spots at the fish pond, visited the pet center, and rode on one of the sky rides. Also Nick’s grandparents were there, so we got to chat for a little bit.
New (to me) foods consumed:
- Burnt Butt Ends at RC BBQ
- Candied Bacon BLT at The Blue Barn
- French Toast Bites at The Blue Barn
- Banana Cinnamon & Cream Johnny Pop
- Candied Bacon Donut Sliders at MN Wine Country
- Cucumber Lemonade at French Meadow Bakery
- Loaded Tots at Tot Boss
- Tater Tot Nachos at Tot Boss
Last summer, I decided to go antiperspirant free. This is my story.
My struggle with antiperspirant has been real since I was a teenager. You see, I’m a sweater. There, I said it. I sweat. A lot. My sweat production calmed down a lot after the puberty phase (Did anyone else pit out through sweatshirts? Yes? No? Just me? Okay.), but for the most part, my pits were always moist. The only thing that ever seemed to stop the sweating was the nighttime deodorant Certain Dri. Use it for 3 nights, your pits will dry up like a desert for a week. You might get a burning itchy sensation if you apply to much, or too often, or use it after shaving or showering. You might even wake up and have itched yourself raw in the middle of the night, but speaking as someone who pitted out sweatshirts, it was totes worth it.
