National Make it with Wool Competition (part 2)

[part 1]


Friday we got up at six so I could shower, eat a bit, do make-up and get dressed for judging! I wasn’t too nervous until the clock started ticking closer and closer to the time we had to be on “Hill Country” level. The morning went by so slowly as we waited for everyone to get judged. Every contestant had three minutes with the judges and then the had two minutes to talk about you before they sent in the next person. There were 30 contestants. Yes, two and half hours of just standing there, because if you sat down your garment would wrinkle! Thankfully one of the contestants was a magician so we were quite entertained!

When judging was finally over Jordan and I went with the Utah people to El Mercado to eat at Mi Tierra.El Mercado

The people from Utah were excited about the mexican food while we on the other hand have it all the time ๐Ÿ˜€

My Tacos

After eating we did some shopping… we only ended up with two scarves, but it was fun to look around!

We rode the (off-tracks) trolley home. At every stop or turn it felt like it was going to break! But we enjoyed the ride anyways…

We spent the rest of our after-noon hanging out on the roof by the pool along with Jake, Tia, and Claire.

Dinner was at Rainforest Cafe. Nothing gives you a bigger appetite then a mechanical gorilla beating it’s chest ๐Ÿ™„ Sadly it was too dark to take any good pictures…

Then racing back to the hotel for the Fashion Show rehearsal.

Afterwards I went to the roof to hang out by the pool again. Lots of laughter and fun memories, including dancing the two step with Jordan (right before bed check!) to the loud Jazz music coming from the street and her room mate laughing at us.

Such a beautiful view.

The next morning I ran to Jordan’s room to see if she wanted to see the sun rise from the roof. She quickly got ready as well as one of her room mates. Sadly when we got to the top it was way to cloudy to see the sun.

It was still a beautiful view.


We had to eat breakfast quickly so we’d be ready to go caving by 8.

[Part 3]


Writing, writing and more writing :)

I am still writing my script, but a lot closer to my goal. Only 3 more pages to go!

As soon as I am done writing my script I have to start working on and writing my family’s news letter.

And when I am done with that I need to write my Spanish homework that I just can’t wait to do ๐Ÿ™‚ I have the best Spanish teacher in the world!

And when I am done with that I am going to work on preparing and organizing my writing class I am going to teach! I am so EXCITED!

Hopefully when I find some time in-between all that I will be able to edit my NaNoWriMo book before August.

Can you tell I really enjoy writing? Oh, I almost forgot! Every week I write the first 100 words to a novel with the first sentence given to me as a prompt over at Go Teen Writers.ย 

Hope to come back soon crossing off a goal soon ๐Ÿ™‚

PS ย My Spanish teacher is my sister Jordan ๐Ÿ™‚ I am sorry for those who are having to take Spanish from somebody else. ๐Ÿ˜ฆ
