I want to get our sub forums renamed and blinkes for the group requested. Anyone have any ideas that would correspond with the fair theme?

I know we had talked about
Blue ribbon babies
Blue ribbon bumps

Also are there any more sub forums that you'd like or any that you think should be removed?

Hmmmm.... maybe something with cotton candy? What about something to do with rides for our journal subforum? I would also love a recipe subforum. Gotta keep thinking about that one.

Thanks for getting this rolling!

Hmm I was trying to think of what they usually call the strip where most of the food is... at our county fair we just called it the "Fairway" and that's where all the food carts set up.. Maybe that for recipes?

Other fair-related things:
The grandstand
Parades
Rodeo
Exhibits

I'm just looking through the websites for the Colorado state fair and the county fair that I went to all the time as a kid to get ideas.

For the belly shots we could do something like Fun House Mirrors since our belly are constantly changing.

Heh! Thats a good idea! I was thinking about the bellies and what immediately popped in my head was guess the weight! Haha! Not really appropriate gor preggos, I know lol. But w e could do best in show... for bellies also... I like the fun house mirrior idea also. Im trying to think of a title for the recipe forum. I cant think of anything but Icees and the lyons club. ( thr lyons club always had a booth where they sold chicken strips, fries, burgers, lemonade,ect) so they just happen to be what popped in my mind haha.

Omg I just read about the fairway , I readit before but read it wrong lol. Your fair was better that ours it just said 'food" lol

Oh! We could do the fair way anfd that could be general food then fo an appetizer, entree and dessert category that maybe too much... orrvwe could just name recipes that are put in there and name them after fair things like rodeo ribs, best in show burgers, grand prize greens... somethingblike that.

My hubs always talks about "Food On A Stick" when talking about food related to the fair. It's his only request at any fair.

I like trying to keep the fair/carnival/Circus theme in our sub-themes so here are some of my suggestions and/or suggestions from others that I love:

FOOD - Fairway / Walk on the Fairway (Love it!)

ADVICE COLUMNS
1. Re: Other Children / Family members - Ask the Lion Tamers / Dear Lion Tamers
2. Requests to Hosts - Ask the RingMasters / Dear RingMasters
3. Balancing work with home - Ask the Jugglers / Dear Jugglers

JUST FOR FUN - Circus Clowns / Clowning Around

BELLY PICS - Fun House Mirrors (Too cute!)

NURSERY THEMES/PICS - Babies under the Big Top

MOMMIES OF THE WEEK - Carousel / Ferris Wheel (since I imagine we'll hav at least two mommies each week, i.e. two seats on the wheel or two horses side-by-side on the Carousel

PET STORIES - Animal Act / Livestock shows

I could go on...but I should do some work while in the office

I would hesitate to use BEST IN SHOW for bumps or sonograms because I don't think anyone's bump is "better" than anyone elses...same goes for ultrasounds...just my two cents.

We could possibly use it for a maternity fashion idea theme though...? I love seeing what other women do to style their bump
