I am done.
I ate the last and 93rd item on my list and can say with confidence that I scoured the fair for every unique item on-a-stick. I stopped at every booth and finished every item. This was a success.
The fair is one of my favorite places in the world and I got to spend 10 days doing what I love. I celebrated the last item with my family by my side and got to spend the rest of the morning following tradition and walking through the fair with them. I have THE best family and friends. Folks I haven’t talked to in years reached out to offer support. It has truly been overwhelming the amount of love I have felt throughout this challenge. Not only have people been sending messages and saying hello at the fair, they have also been supporting with generous donations. I cannot say thank-you loud enough. This has been a truly amazing experience.
I had so much fun: meeting new people online and in person, seeing behind the scenes TV and radio, learning how much work it takes to write a blog, oh and EATING EVERYTHING ON-A-STICK.
Here are some of the news stories:

Maybe I will do it all again in the future, maybe not. All I know is that I finished what I set out to accomplished and did something that had never been done before. Today I can officially say:
I ate everything on-a-stick at the Minnesota State Fair.
Thank you for following my story and thank you for all the love.
