I spent today at the LA County Fair at a fund-raising event with my roommate Gina for her project, Pin-Ups for Vets. Of course we had to dress up as Pin-Ups for the whole day! That wasn't a problem for me because you know how much I love dressing up. I especially love all Gina's fun wigs! What do you think of me with this short black hair?
One of my favorite parts about today was getting to try the delicious fried Oreos! OMG! They were amazing! I seriously heart Oreos! If you get the chance to go the fair, try them! Of course, they aren't something that you should be eating all the time. : )
Another fun thing that happened today at the fair is Steve Wilkos showed up to sign autographs and take pictures with fans. For those of you that don't know him, he was Jerry Springer's main security guard on his show. But now, he of course has his own talk show currently in it's 4th season. I've never seen it but apparently he has quite a following. He was a nice guy and just so happened to be a Marine. This of course made him super VET friendly.
We also got to hang out with the renown Iraqi Veteran, Bryan Anderson. His story is incredibly moving and was featured on the January 2007 cover of Esquire magazine. His experience will astound you and certainly teach you what it means to be strong in the face of immense hardships. These are the kind of people that I look up to.
