Realizing I have not blogged in like 10days, I'm thinking I better say something. It really doesn't seem like that long- but I guess date stamps don't lie. Right?
So, when we left off last, I was about 2 embark on my last shift at Extreme Home Makeover. It was a little more productive and fun- and I enjoyed it. Then, I also got to make a trip over the night before the reveal. We took Arbonne over for the family, which is done for each family on the show. That was very exciting bc the house was almost done. It was amazing to see it at the intervals I did up close.
Meanwhile, back at the ranch- we were practicing for a pageant. Miss Gray was headed to the National Holiday Miss pageant in Chickasha- my favorite-on 2/6. At least we didn't have to stay! She performed very well- it was a huge pageant. She won both a national talent & national photogenic crown. We've never won a photogenic title & we use the same photo everytime. This further proves my point that it all depends on the judges opinions that day! I was quite proud of her--but she cried and cried because she didn't win the overall title. Oy.
Also since I last typed: Grayce was asked to be on the team at gymnastics & we started going twice a week for 2 hours a time. She's getting used to it- but definetly notices the longer practice! She also has huge black and blue bruises on her front hip bones, she's not so fond of...those bars are brutal. We have yet to master the new schedule juggling that, dinner & Gavin to wrestling but are working on it!
Another first: I attended a Tulsa Blogger Meet-up thanks to Tasha Does Tulsa. It was fun putting people with blogs and meeting some illusive internets. I recently re-did a couple of the blog designs of a couple of great bloggers, btw. Kellyology & Redneck Diva. It was the first time I met Redneck Diva in real life! Had fun seeing The 4 Crows as well & enjoying Joe Momma's- first time there too!
Also, it was my mom's and my grandma's birthday in between. Gavin has a test on the 50 states & capitals and has to do a report, campaign poster and dress up like: George Washington. I'm thinking yay for an easy one- but- where am I to find a powder wig?
