fair week.

Ahh... fair week. One of my favorite weeks of the year.

This was my fourth year. When I got there, I couldn't believe I had started fair at age nine!

But seriously, I love the fair. I did really well this year, too. Well, not with rabbits. In that area, I stunk. :p

Dakota got a participation in Conformation. Wilbur got a blue. JayJay and Pepper stayed home. I got a blue in Showmanship (I was aiming for Reserve Champion... but I didn't even make it to the champion round!)

I got GRAND CHAMPION IN PHOTOGRAPHY again! :) You can see the pictures I entered {here}. The one of Howard (the puppy :)) got a red ribbon. The one of the street got Grand Champion over the entire Intermediate division. The one of the girl got Champion over the entire Intermediate: People division. The one of the sunset got a blue (and they filed it under Junior...???)

I also got CHAMPION IN IRON CHEF!!! I did Iron Chef with Anne again :) The secret ingredient was pears. We made pork with pear salsa and pears with chocolate-cranberry sauce. It. tasted. amazing.

I got Reserve Champion in sewing. I entered a skirt that I had made to wear to school on Wednesdays (that's chapel day). I love the skirt so much - I'm making two more just like it, but with different fabric! (I use this pattern)

I got two blues for my speeches. My amazing friend, Rose got GRAND CHAMPION! I totally knew she would get it. She ADORES speeches. I don't know why... but she's really good at them! She loves political topics. And those can get boring.. but her speeches aren't boring! ;)

I think that's it...

Wanna know what book I'm reading???????

My BGF (who I have known for eleven years) is loaning me the first three books while he is on vacation!!! (btw... thanks! lovin the book! ;))

I saw the movie at my friend's house... it was so good I had to read the books!

After that... I'm reading this book...
