Glitter, Gowns and Crowns

You might remember that I tweeted about going on an adventure last week..(What? We're not twitter buddies? Here, let's fix that right now..) and so I have been waiting on the photos to arrive so I could share it with you.

I competed in a pageant, and ended up winning the title! It was a one day event, and quite the fun learning experience. I'm not a pageant girl by any means, but I had decided that this would be something fun to do, and good practice for speaking to audiences, which I'll be doing more of in the near future. The competition had three categories for which we were scored; Patriotic casual wear modeling, On stage introduction, and Evening Gown. I had a lot of fun, met some sweet girls, and walked away with a sparkling crown and the title of Miss Liberty 2011.

The competition started with the patriotic modeling, and onstage introductions



and then came the evening gown, and crowning!

Other current queens from different states came in to do the crowning for each of the 6 age categories.
(thanks to pageant paparazzi for the photos)

So there you have it, my pageant experience. With a title, comes responsibility, and so I plan on making a positive difference through my time as Miss Liberty. 

Have a wonderful week!
