Renee and I were so excited to see Oprah today!  We had to be at the park before 9AM to get into the main stage area, but we couldn’t make it :( However we stood behind the barrier and was able to get awesome pics of’ Oprah, Gayle, Nate Berkus and Ali Wentworth, who performed with the Dallas Cowboy Cheerleaders and special performance by Martina McBride. (I was closer to Oprah then I was to Britney at her concert weeks ago)

Later we made our way to the petting zoo

Most of the animals had been fed already so they were not interested in our food.

It was still fun

Maria, we missed the actual show. She came out to reshoot the last part again, saying god bye and thanking Texas for having her. I think she was there for one of her traveling shows and things about the Texas Fair. We got lucky that she came back out.

Taylor@Joy of Food October 13, 2009 at 6:47 am

Looks like a fabulous day, with plenty of yummy eats.

maria October 12, 2009 at 11:25 pm

So fun that you got to see Oprah! I’m a little jealous, I have to admit. What did she talk about?

Fried oreos? Really… wow!!! That’s soooooo ugh… couldn’t even imagine eating it.

DaMora October 12, 2009 at 9:51 pm
