|You Are a Boston Creme Donut|
You have a tough exterior. No one wants to mess with you.
But on the inside, you're a total pushover and completely soft.
You're a traditionalist, and you don't change easily.
You're likely to eat the same doughnut every morning, and pout if it's sold out.

The kids are all doing great... Me, I'm buzzing along slowly. Unfortunately, I will have to admit that I have no stitchy news to report, as I have not picked up my needle and thread in about 6 months as well...
You are Supergirl

I was lucky enough to be a finalist in the Mrs. Wyoming Pageant. What a wonderful experience that was! It was a lot of work, but it was also a lot of fun. After the pageant was over, my husband and I went out to dinner in our formal wear; the looks that we were getting were priceless!
Alas, I did not win or place, or show for that matter... I was a top 40 contestant... :) The new Mrs. Wyoming is a gracious person who spent considerable time preparing for this pageant. I can definitely say that I learned something from her!
I came away without any feelings of sadness until I began to watch the Miss Universe pageant, then I cried. I cried because the pageant that I was in was over and I no longer had it too look forward to. I think that I might compete again one more time, but it will not be for a few years. There is a lot more to it than I thought and I would like to be prepared better next time around..
Thank you for all of the well wishes, they were greatly appreciated! For any of my gals in the pageant who read this, don't be a stranger...

I do have to admit that I really liked a few others better, but this was the unanimous dress chosen by all that viewed my choices. Now this is in Aqua and my dress with be in honeydew, like the melon. I haven't yet received it, but as soon as I do I will try to post a picture of me in it.
Although the actual color I chose was sage green. Pink is pretty, don't get me wrong, but I would only be able to wear it in Spring. Whereas, sage green is a multiuse color! :) I know, I know, I'm splitting hairs with colors, but in the end I want to be able to wear it more than once a year...
I'm sorry to say that I have not made any appearances recently. It has been quite the busy time and well, I just haven't had time. But I am rectifying this soon, as me and a few of the other finalists will be in the St. Patrick's Day parade in Cody! What fun is that! We'll be riding in a 1919 touring car. It will be my first time in such a vehicle, but I'm sure it will be just fun!
Other than that things are pretty quiet here on the pageant front. I will hopefully be able to share pictures will you more as I get closer to the actual pageant, and of course, the pictures after the pageant, so you will be able to see how good me and Jeff clean up! :)

In order of appearance from left to right are:
Brandi - Mrs. Northern Wyoming, Senator Alan Simpson, retired, Me - Mrs. Park County and Becky - Mrs. Thermopolis
I also got to share a laugh with Senator Simpson, while his wonderful wife took a picture. He is quite a character, having regaled us with tales of his youth. My husband, Jeff, is a huge fan of his, so this was quite cool!
For those that have heard his name before and don't quite remember when. Senator Alan Simpson was part of the Iraq Study Group that made recommendations to President Bush. Now no flaming Senator Simpson, but Bush is fair game. :)
Take care, that's all for now...

For those that have never heard of this, or want more information, a Passion Party is a way of learning about sexual awareness, while promoting a healthy relationship. This was a fundraiser for another State Finalist in the area. Our presenter was very professional and NOTHING embarassed her! It made everything more relaxed. I must say that if you have the opportunity to go to one, you should. And if you have the opportunity to go as a couple, I think that would just be the most fun way of doing this... But then again, maybe not!
For those that I may have offended, I'm sorry. For those that I didn't, well I knew you guys were awesome. And just so you know, my husband was very supportive, this was not done in secrecy. He took care of all of the kids, so I could have a bit of a girls' night out.
I'll let you know about the other events later on. :)

Ah well... There's my vent for the day. Thanks for hearing me out! On the other side of things, I am not getting much stitching done again, as school has started. This semester shouldn't be as trying as last semester, but nonetheless school work cuts into my stitchy time anyway. I'll post updates on Angel of the Morning and the beginnings of War Paint as soon as I can.

So far, I have to say that it has been a blast. I've had my title now since October and I have been out in my community, more like my county, volunteering, doing fundraisers, and seeking sponsorships, as this is not the cheapest hobby to have!
Here is a picture of our opening number dress:
I have chosen coral, which is like the color of the dress on the right. Now I just need to lose a few pounds that have decided that they like their current home and I will be looking good! Once I get my interview suit, evening gown, and swimsuit picked out, you'll be the first to know. I'll also keep you updated on how my volunteering is going and see if I can get some pictures of the other girls in the area.
And you all just let me know if you want my address, so you can send donations to help pay for this, because I'm starting to believe that crafting is a lot cheaper! :)
Feel free to ask any questions that you may have. Whomever wins in May goes on to compete in the Mrs. America pageant held in beautiful Arizona, so well wishes are definitely welcome!

I am very proud to say that I completed my first project of the New Year. I've been working on this off and on for about 4 months. The design is "Olde Irish Blessing" from Erica Michaels. I loved the way it turned out. :)
The picture just does not due it justice. I am now working on L&L's Angel of the Morning, again... There are just so many similar colors, it is very hard to get into stitching. But, I'm going to try putting it on a rotation and see if that gets it done alot faster!
And then, there was the END....
Of course, something needed to give me a good slap of reality. I was uploading all of the pictures that I took at Christmas, of the kids and their bounty, when my memory card freaked out. After rebooting and trying every way that I knew, I have concluded that I have lost those irreplaceable pictures... It just upsets me! I guess the positive thing is that I didn't lose more than that. So, I'll be looking for a new memory card this weekend, so I can continue to take pictures of the kiddos.
I must say that the weather has been quite fickle here lately. This morning we awoke to driving winds and falling snow, so much so that it took Jeff almost 25 minutes to go about 8 miles up the road! >:o0 Now, however, it is sunny and calm... I'm just hoping that we get feet of snow this winter, as opposed to inches. :)

My New Year's resolutions have already begun and I am happy to report that I am off to a good start. :) Here are some things that I hope to accomplish this year:
