Fried red velvet oreos?!

Well hey there guys and happy Monday! I hope y’all had a great weekend. Y’all do anything fun? Friday night was pretty low key around here. I was in serious need of some down time after a super hectic week. So Greg was a sweetheart and picked us up some Salsarita’s to go and we watched a movie on Netflix. Nothing earth shattering but it was exactly what I needed.

Saturday started off with us grabbing lunch with Greg’s mom before running some errands. Then we hit up the South Carolina State Fair! The Fair comes once a year in October and it’s quite the big deal. Greg was a good sport and we rode a ride called the Crazy Mouse, played a couple games, and saw some of the exhibits. However, the star of the show is always the food. Deep fried everything. Reeses, cookie dough, butter (yes…butter), you name it, it’s there. Greg and I grabbed ourselves a Pronto pup (which I discovered is basically the biggest corn dog I’ve ever seen), Fiske fries and….wait for it…fried red velvet oreos. Yes. Normally, I’m not a fan of that kind of stuff but I’m kind of obsessed with red velvet. Here is a picture for your viewing pleasure:

It was basically a normal orea surrounded by what tasted like red velvet cake. Greg and I shared that order right there and thought they were pretty darn good! Not something I would want every day, but certainly a fun treat. By the way, the wierd thick cream on the oreos is cream cheese icing. They thought of everything!

However…fried foods aside…the real reason we came to the Fair was to see Lee Brice in concert!

Our seats weren’t half bad and it was such a fun, laid back concert! Lee Brice is from Sumter, which is about an hour from Columbia, so he kept saying how it was good to be back home in South Carolina. He talked a lot in between songs and it all felt very personal, so Greg and I had a blast. Plus, he sang my favorite song of the moment – “I Don’t Dance”, which he wrote for his wife to be played on their wedding day. If y’all haven’t heard it yet, go check it out, it’s really sweet.

Then Sunday, Greg and I went to church before grabbing some hibachi for lunch with some friends. The rest of the day was spent grocery shopping and lounging around watching some Breaking Bad. Not a bad weekend at all if I do say so myself! I hope y’all have a great start to the week and I’ll catch up with you Wednesday! 🙂
