These are the rules: You must post the rules before you give your answers. You must list one fact about yourself for each letter of your middle name. Each fact must begin with that letter. If you don't have a middle name, just use your maiden name. After you've been tagged, you need to update your blog with your middle name and answers. At the end of your post, you need to tag one person for each letter of your middle name. Be sure to leave them a comment telling them they've been tagged and need to read your blog for details.

Baby, It Ain't Over til It's Over!

I have been submerged in Interior Design for the past 2 years, and Baby, IT'S OVER!! WOOOHOOO!!!! I can't tell who's more excited for me to graduate: me, or Bleu. There was a Portfolio awards ceremony thursday night, and a few of my friends asked Bleu how he was feeling about me graduating. He always said "I'm WAY excited! I get a WIFE! I've never had one before!" :) I'm excited too. So the big day finally came and went. We set up our presentations from 7 to 9 am and waited ever so impatiently for the judging to finish. I could care less if I had won any awards, I just wanted to PASS!! With everything that we've been through in the past three or four months, I am thrilled just to pass and move on.

But first, a funny story:
The night before Portfolio, I came home from class early to get everything ready for the next morning. Once I ate and settled down, I realized that I would finally be setting up. Excited, however I had not gone to get easels or anything to set up. so I called Michael's to see when they close-9:00. It was 8:30 and it takes 20 minutes to get there. So i was on my way out the door, and Bleu was giving me the "what are you thinking?" look. He said "you are really going to buy easels? why didn't you do this last week?" I really didn't want to talk to him at that moment because he already knew what I was doing last week. GRRRR> so now i'm thinking, "what am i going to do now?" So I put my things down and took a few breaths and decided to put my creativity to the test.

I said "I need some boxes.....and stuff" I used my bifold doors that dad fixed up for the wedding, boxes from the kitchen and my closet, some baskets that we kept for no reason, a scarf, glove, pearl neclace, a margarita glass with sand inside, toy dinosaurs, a stuffed monkey, a woven garbage container, a caserole dish, a clock, a plant, a spaghetti strainer, place settings, a mason jar filled with macoroni noodles, spice jars, and a piece of fabric that i've had laying around for about 4 years. i even used our family photo to hold up one of my boards! oh, and Camille, thanks for the table cloth and place settings!! they were the crown.

It was definately interesting, and Bleu was making fun of me the whole time, but you know, it worked. and it's my style. It was definately different from anyone else's display, and a lot of the girls said how much it matched my personality. I didn't win anything, but I finished! And that's all that matters to me.
I even got a passing grade from Miles, the instructor and Director of the program. Not my best grade, but a passing grade.

Here's a few more closer pictures of each board and it's decor. Just a better look.

Bleu's Birthday!!

Bleu was very specific on what he wanted for his birthday-to swear in to the Army National Guard, and a 9mm Pistol.

He was up and out of the house by 5:30 AM and at the doctor's for half of the day. He said there was lots of "poking, prodding, turning and coughing." I was able to join in on the fun around 2:00 and go to the Army Headquarters where all of the paper work and swearing in took place. I had little butterflies in my stomach, and Sergent Keegan actually had to remind me to breathe.

After all of that fun stuff, we drove down to Cabella's to the gun show and he found a gun. There was no fighting it, so I just let him get it. Later we went to dinner. I had arranged for a couple to meet us there, because it was her Birthday, too. They were supposed to be there at 6:30, and we got tired of waiting, ate, and left at 8. We all met at a friend's house for a surprise party. Because it was Bleu's 21st, we had Margarita's. It was alot of fun, but Bleu was tired, and I was feeling less than sociable. So we faked sick and went home to bed.

Of course, Bleu had to try out his new toy as soon as humanly possible. So we went to Provo with Gavin, his roommate, and thier dates to go shooting. It was pretty fun, but after about 45 minutes, I was feeling very fuzzy, and lightheaded. I volunteered to keep the blankets from blowing away and laid down for the most part. he seemed to like his new gun.
