This has nothing to do with the audition, but I just wanted to post it anyways...
Many have been asking how the America's Got Talent audition went...good. It was an experience - a once-in-a-lifetime. We headed to Talent, OR yesterday afternoon - our auditions was supposed to be at 2:15, but we probably didn't audition until about 3. The audition was at Talent Middle School and we were put in "holding room" - aka the cafeteria. There were all sorts of people: guitar players, saxaphone players, music groups, singers, and even a bicyclist. We were the only dancers there...in our tutus. I will say that I was surprised at how under-dressed people were - this is your only opportunity to make a first impression on these judges! Dress up! Sorry about that. Anyways...after we got checked in (lots of paperwork to fill out), we sat and waited. Stretched - worked on a few things. There was a guy who would call a few people's name of off the list and you would wait your turn to go in the gym. Before we headed into the gym, Hayley asked if I would say a prayer - she's asked me a couple of times before (nerves went down a bit after that).
We walked into the quietest gym I have ever been in - 2 British judges sitting at a table with their laptops open and one lady standing at a camera. The British lady asked us a few questions - Hayley responded - we did our routine - she asked Hayley a few more questions - out of the gym we walked. It was so dang quiet in that gym! We are used to dancing in front of large, loud crowds. The lady said they would contact us by April if we made it through - if not, then no contact. If we don't make it, then oh and well. It was a great experience though. Here a few pictures of the ride back to Klamath...
Me and Tiff all "dolled" up
I love this girl
We got home at about 5:30 - sat and chatted with Nic - headed to a baptism. After the baptism, Nic and I headed to Freddies to get me some blush. Nic found something that he said he wanted to get me later on for a present. Well he decided to get it for me right then and there...It's a travel bag with make-up bags inside it. I LOVE it! Can't wait to use it. He is so good to me - love you Nic! And he said he would never get me a bag...

Last night was the dance team's last performance of the season. We danced our new doll routine at the OIT Men's play-off basketball game...we won by 1! It's a really short routine: 1 min 30 sec. I think the crowd was surprised once we were done - I think they liked it though. I'm kind of sad that dance is ending for me, but at the same time looking forward to having my nights open to do homework...or just to hang around. It's a bitter/sweet moment. Now it's on to preparing for this weekend: Talent, OR for an invitation only try-out to be on America's Got Talent...

Hayley told the dance team on the night of the Pink Out! that the producer from America's Got Talent called and wanted to see us dance. Exciting, right? Right. The producer asked us to put a couple of our dances on You Tube:

After the Pink Out! I came home to 2 presents, a peanut butter/chocolate heart and my fav flowers: Lilies. :) What a sweet husband I have. He wanted me to open up 1 of the presents = a pair of brown patent heels with a gold buckle. So dang cute! He wants to make it a tradition to get me heels for VDay - he got me heels last year for VDay. I'm perfectly ok with this new tradition. :)
VDay was great: stake conference, movies, food and presents. Nic loved the gift I got him and I loved the gifts I got from him. It was such a relaxing day. I loved spending with my love. I love you Nic Phair.
What an eventful day Saturday was - it started at 4 p.m. and didn't end until 10:30 p.m. The day started off with getting ready to go back into the 80s...
I crimped my hair - so 80s
Me and Tiffany - we looked identical that night
We danced at the girl's and guy's game - this is before the guy's game. We were all in our pink get up.
A few of the girls - last minute getting ready. Bottom L to R: Kaylene, Mackenzie, Jessica, Nicole, Marie and Tiffany.
This girl absolutely LOVES the dance team - she asked for all of our autographs.
After we performed, Hootie Jr came back and thanked us for dancing. Perfect time for a photo!
The games were great - girls and guys both won! Girls won in OT and the guys won by 20 points or more. After the game, there was a video presentation on Danny Miles (coach) and he got this crystal basketball thing - it was really cool looking. Only 5 or so coaches have gotten 900 wins - 35th consecutive home game win. It was a lot of fun to say the least.
Nic went to stake conference - I hadn't seen him all day. :)
It was senior night for the basketball teams...and apparently the dance team. Before we went out and performed, Haylee wanted to recognize the senior on the dance team: ME! :) She gave me pink roses.
These newspapers were handed out to everyone in the crowd - it was all about Danny.

I am so dang excited about it! - a little bummed because Nic or my parents won't be there. :( Luckily, the dance team is also performing tomorrow night at KU's basketball halftime - dress rehearsal! The dance is really coming together and my 80's outfit is complete: pink, pink and more pink! Here is a Q/A card that is going in the pink t-shirts being handed out at the game...

This game is going to be huge! 1 Pink Out! 2 we're playing SOU 3 this game could be Danny Mile's 900th win 4 this game could also be the 35th consecutive home game win 5 last performance of the dance team.
