We also got to work with the fabulous Kent Parham, choreographer extraordinaire and Justin Popovics, nutritionist, pageant trainer and the fiercest diva you will ever meet. We got to model in swimsuit, work on our walks, perform our talents and get valuable feedback on all of the above.
Here are some shots from the weekend:
Joelle and Myself, Day 1, making a pit-stop for diner food.
Us upstate girls love a good, greasy spoon.
Day 2, taking a break at workshop to pose for Shelb.
Posing for our class picture, are you getting excited yet? One of these 24 women will be competing for the title of Miss America!!
After that exciting whirlwind of a weekend I came home and relaxed for about an hour before going back to work. THEN, got an amazing phone call that informed me of an impending job offer. I had interviewed with a company called Local Edge because a former Miss TI, Kristina Blackford, works there and suggested it to me. It had been so long since I interviewed that I was starting to think I must have not gotten the position but I finally got a call! I am so very excited to be starting what I call a "big girl" job in a few weeks.
Today though, I will be heading back to Watertown for the Armed Forces Parade tomorrow morning. I am very excited, not only because I haven't been in a parade in 7 years but also because I am honored to celebrate this special day with the men and women who dedicate their lives to our country.
I hope you all have a wonderful weekend!
