I plan on posting my before and after pictures and results here once the judging is complete next week. Overall, I am really happy with how I did and hope that I place in the judging!
Allan arrived home on Friday night after a week of fishing in Northern Manitoba with his dad. It is so nice to have him home. It was the longest that we have been apart or not spoken to each other in the 5 1/2 years that we have been together.
We ended up having a really nice weekend together filled with test kitchen eats, my first real cheat meal since the beginning of the competition (pizza at the Leaning Tower of Pizza & homemade sangria by the fire!), a long bike ride, some cleaning, errand running, and a movie. Yesterday we went to a matinee of Up in 3D. It was one of the cutest, heart warming movies that I have seen in a while... I might even dare to say that it was better than Wall-E, which I also loved! It was definitely an all ages show that spanned a wide array of mature topics while still being completely suitable for young children. There were several scenes in the movie that pulled at your heart strings and made me well up with tears. What a treat! Thanks, Allan.
