“It's not the critic who counts, not the man who points out how the strong man stumbled, or when the doer of deeds could have done better. The credit belongs to the man who is actually in the arena; whose face is marred by dust and sweat and blood; who strives valiantly; who errs and comes short again and again; who knows the great enthusiasms, the great devotions and spends himself in a worthy cause; who at the best, knows in the end the triumph of high achievement; and who at the worst if he fails, at least fails while daring greatly, so that his place shall never be with those cold and timid souls who know neither victory or defeat.”

- Theodore Roosevelt


Bill's Final MRED Synthesis Project

Bill presented his final MRED synthesis project this morning at the Valleyho resort. He did a phenomenal job. I am so proud of all of his hard work, and it definitely came to fruition today when he presented. Their project objective was to develop a parcel of land located in Scottsdale. For those who are familiar with AZ, it is located just diagonal to Kierland Commons. Each project group was given $10 million dollars to work with, and they came up with some really impressive stuff.


Husband Tag!

Thanks Katie Kate!  This was really fun!

What is your husband's name?  William Raymond Knowlton
How long have you been together?  We dated for 1 1/2 years, and have been married for almost 5 years in August = 6 1/2 years.
Who said "I love you" first?  Bill did.  I felt really bad initially because I have always taken the "I love you" phrase very seriously, and when he said it, I wasn't ready.  So, I replied "thank you...that's so sweet."  So lame....I know, but at least we can laugh about it now.
Who is smarter?  Bill is definitely smarter than me…no questions.
Who does the housework?  ME!
Who sleeps on the right?  Bill does.  I still get scared sleeping closest to the door.
Who pays the bills?  Me! Always.
Who cooks dinner?  For the most part, I do.  Bill will make dinner on occasion.
Who drives when you are together?  Bill always does.  I don’t think he appreciates my driving skills.  However, who’s gotten more speeding tickets in the last year…that would be Bill.
Who is more stubborn?  Unfortunately, we are both equally stubborn
Who kissed who first?  Bill kissed me.  It was the cutest thing ever.  We  were on our second date at the drive-in movies, and don’t you worry we were pimpn’ the big ol’ suburban.  Anyways, Bill leaned over to kiss me and his lips were shaking so badly because he was so nervous.  He asked me, “what would you say if I asked to kiss you?”  I replied, “Why don’t you try and find out.” Our first kiss…very sweet!  I knew he was a keeper right then.
Who proposed?  Bill did.  It was the most romantic proposal ever!!!!  We stopped in London after a long three-month trip to rural Africa, where we were building AIDS hospitals.  We had an amazing day shopping around in Camden town, and playing around in the city.  We decided to go for a ride on the London eye.  Somehow Bill sneaked in this beautiful bouquet of flowers to give me.  When we were at the top of the London eye (it’s like a humongous ferris wheel) he got down on his knee and proposed…it was so romantic.  The following day, he had arranged for us to go to Paris and have dinner on the Eiffel Tower.  What else could a girl ask for in a proposal?  It was amazing!  Thanks babe!!
Who has more siblings?  Bill- he has three wonderful siblings (one younger sister and two older brothers)
Who wears the pants?  Neither one of us actually, I feel pretty good about saying that we are pretty equal in our relationship.
I tag:  Every Wife that looks at my blog-When you have time it's fun!

I love my hubby!
