Award-winning

I WON A BLUE RIBBON AT THE FAIR!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!


You guys!!!!!  Maybe you're not aware but winning a blue ribbon at the fair was one of my Life Goals.  In fact, as soon as I'm done I'm going to open up my Life Goal spread sheet and cross it off. My whole life I have gone to the LA County Fair and have wandered through the exhibits and have sighed over other people winning.  So when I won 3rd place a few years ago I felt really great about it, but it still wasn't a blue.

So just imagine my joy when I get a text from my mom, who was at the fair with my dad, and in that text was a picture of my lace doily and a blue ribbon.  (Just typing that makes me want to do a cartwheel!)  The next minute or so was a blur but I know for sure there were multiple fist pumps, several leaps, a few shimmies and a toe touch.  It's a good thing I was still wearing my gym clothes for extra flexibility and ease of motion.

Totally worth the year it took to make that thing.  Dream come true!
