An Almost Champion

Tonight was our Ward Nerd Fest! I wore my Betsy-Tacy shirt, high pants, a lanyard that I made myself, my favorite pair of glasses that I found in a gutter after they had been run over by a car, a bulky sweater, crazy pigtails and my giant men's moccasins. And I didn't win the costume contest. There were some very creative people out there!

But I was pretty successful in the Twinkie eating contest! I jumped in just for fun and was able to cram in 3 1/2 Twinkies in 1 minute! I made it to the finals but they were much harder because everyone was cheering and making me laugh. Jared got 2 Twinkies down in 30 seconds but I only got 1 1/2 down, so he was the champion. But I'm ok with second.

Moral of the story - you never know what talents are hidden inside you.


  1. I Love your nerd outfit! So so cute!

    Hey you like where you are living this year? I'm trying to decide what I want to do this next fall. I'm going out on my own, so I want a fun social place, that isn't too expensive :)

  2. Aww! I really like your Nerd outfit! And I liked your story, and the fact that you were an almost champion, cause somedays I do fail, but now I will now think of myself as an "almost champion." Thanks for posting this story it brightened my day! GO BYU!
