How could I forget?
Miss Universe 2008 (Miss Venezuela)
The only picture I can find from my pageant!
The grand finale of our weekend (which I was reminded by one of my friends blogs!)was watching the Miss Universe Pageant Sunday night. I am sure you can imagine how ecstatic Seth was to watch this with me (this is a joke, but he was kind enough to sit through most of it so I wouldn't have to watch it alone!). Anyways, Miss USA fell again this year, which was pretty funny. I just don't know how in the one moment when you should not trip out of all other moments in your life, you do! A couple of years ago, before I was married, I was in a couple of pageants. I had always wanted to try it and I decided it was now or never. They were great experiences, and a lot harder than prancing around in a swimsuit. I didn't fall in my evening gown though. The interview part is extremely intimidating. I blubbered my way through, even though I had spent many an hour practicing how I would answer my questions. I did the Miss America program and with that one you have to have a talent and be a volunteer. I think some of the girls made up there volunteer stuff, but that is me being judgemental and I shouldnt. My mom was Miss Appomattox and was in the Miss Virginia pageant! Although I didnt make it that far, I am glad I was able to check pageants off of my list. Now if only I could look like Miss Venezuela!!!
BTW- I am realizing how bad of an idea it is to put your own picture below Miss Universe.
