Requirement # 403 for future husband.......

So today Kara and I have been getting ready to go to Minnisota tomorrow night. With me, im packing for another trip thats back to back, but more on that later.....
Kara and i were home alone and our parents left us raw hamburger pattys to cook on the stove. Easy, right? WRONG!!!!!
Kara sent me out to make our burgers, so i got to work putting the pattys in the pan and throughly washing my hands after touching the meat (i've been watching a ton of Chopped lately, and people have been getting in trouble for cross-contamination and i didnt want to get kara or i sick) and proceded to cook the meat.
 When i thought the meat was cook perfectly, i took it out of the pan ( it was nice and brown on the outside!) and cut them in half. To my surprise, the middle was COMPLETELY RAW!! not like rare, but raw raw raw. Ew.
So problem solved, just put the halfs back in the pan. Simple!
So i cooked them for a little longer till i was for sure they were done. I put them on a plate and brought them to Kara.
I knew something was wrong when she smelled them and kinda made a face..... I smelled them and they did kinda smell funny. Great. Kara told me to take a bite to be sure. I took a bite and it tasted NASTY!!!!

It may look ok, but dont let it fool you!!

I have absolutly no idea how in the world the soap i washed my hands with got in the meat, but i sure tased like it. There went two perfectly good hamburgers.
Though, being a big sister and all, Kara stepped up and made us another supper. Hot dogs. I love big sisters.......

SO, furture husband, if you are reading this, youd better know how to grill/ cook meat ( even better, a chef) cause, i sure dont!!

Today Kara and i had State Speech. I had one entry and Kara had two. I was really nervous, but i was SUPER excited. My entry was called- Puberty- The Game Show. Its a game show about two kids "growing up". Im Babs the "producer" and lets say, personally speaking, i have the hardest part 1. because i have the very first line in the script 2. i have to be SUPER energetic and 3. everyone holds me accountable for the quality of the show ( im not sure why they depend on me, because i dont mind it, only if theyd stop being pessimistics) Well its crazy funny, it has adds and everything. Hilarious. Kara's I'll her tell you what hers were about.
SO, at districts, we did good, but we were really shaky. Thats because we had never really practiced in front of a real crowd and werent sure what was going to happen.Though dont worry because we made it to state.
That brings us to today. Since there is a huge snowstorm that made is way to Iowa, 8 schools weren't able to come because they couldn't because of the snow. That threw everything out of wack. If one of the eight schools were above you in the schedule, your group had to move up to the empty spot. So long story short, my group went about 2 hours early. Bleck.
When we performed, we did really well. Tons better than before. Sadly though, a few people we a little pessimistic about it, but i was not.
After about two hours after we performed, i went to look at the results ( for like the millionth time) and i saw something that i never wouldnt think we would have gotten. We got ............................ THREE ONES!!!!! For the people who dont know what that means, let me explain. If you get three ones then you have the chance of going to All-State. For those of you who know nothing of speech or anything like it,  All- State is a HUGE deal. Like HUGE!! For  group of Freshmen kids, thats like a HUGE HUGE HUGE deal!!!!!!!!!!
So, now we have to wait two more weeks until we find out who made it to All- State.
So until then i have my fingers crossed double times, because it would mean a ton if i made it.
