County Fair

I went on second and third dates with a certain gent this weekend. Not sure what all I should write here (no, he doesn't know about this blog, and I'd kind of like to keep it that way), but we had a really good time. I am trying not to over-analyze it all, but it sure is nice to connect with someone, whether it is a short-term thing or a long-term thing. :]

Anywhoo, we went to the LA County Museum of Art and saw the Tim Burton exhibition, then we went out to my favorite Mexican restaurant, then we went to an oddball dive bar IN MY NEIGHBORHOOD that I didn't even know existed. LOL! The next day we went to the LA County Fair. I hadn't been to a fair since I was a kid, so this was especially fun. Here are some of the pictures I took. Note: He didn't seem to mind all of the picture taking -- YAY!!!!!!

I am so excited for you!

I love all your photography. It definitely has a "Droll Girl" feel to it. Very you and very different.

Can't wait to hear more about this certain gent. Is he cute?

Fashion, Art and other fancies said...

Ah, so you've been busy dating;-)
It's good to connect with someone whether long or short-term. It's very human;-)

Seems like fun was had by all at the fair. Glad you took pictures for us all to see;-)

Trissta said...

Woooooo!! Look at you 2nd AND 3rd dates?! I must say, that's impressive. I sincerely hope that you made it to the Creep Show. Probably the best highlight ever of a date. Especially in that neon cheetah print, overly large, furry cowboy hat. I hope you got one, because they're ridiculous.

Much Love,
Trissta

PS, If that's him in the pile of comforters... He has very nice knee caps. ;) Quality.

Brandi said...

Finally a non-creepy guy! I've said it before - you've got such a good eye! Love the pictures, especially the first one.

Claire Kiefer said...

Gorgeous photos. I knew I wasn't gonna get to see him in them, but can't deny that I'm dying of curiosity. I'm so happy for you: that y'all went on 2 more dates and that you didn't want to kill him after all! This could be a good thing. I've heard they do happen, sometimes.

You're Lucky I Don't Have a Gun... said...

LOVE both of the skytram pix. Like, enough to have them framed on a wall.

But the pic of the goat made me have sad eyes. He looks so lonely!

And most importantly- when do we get to see mystery dude??? ;)

Kristin said...

Woot woot for fun dates with fabulous fellas! Do you like all the alliteration? I thought you might. Ha! From what I can tell from the photos, it certainly looks like a fun weekend!

Jessica ( frellathon ) said...

Yay that's so awesome I hope he's all kinds of studly and way awesome. I'm happy for you. Also I'm now hungry for a big fat sausage.

cerebral e said...

I love these photos!

And I hope it works out with the gent...now that you've shown him your fave Mexican joint!

Chessa! said...

the photos are fantastic! sounds like a fabulous weekend to me! and you KNOW I love a man who doesn't mind (ie. can tolerate, in my case) insane amounts of picture taking:) x

Haute World said...

So glad your dates went well! Keeping my fingers crossed that this guy's a keeper. Man, I would have loved to go to the Tim Burton exhibition. Hope they bring that to other cities at some point. Great shots!

Kara said...

The creep show photo is a total win. All of them are, really!

Yay for good dates :) I hope you have many more with mystery gentleman!

Trixie said...

The pic of the kid with the comforters looks like my son in every shopping place I drag him. LOL

Hey, I hope this works out! Sounds good! Here's hoping he doesn't break out any poetry

Isabel said...
