Hello! I hope that everyone is enjoying the beautiful weather we are having. Just when I thought it was time to pull out my winter coat, the sun decided to stay out a little longer. This past weekend I attended the Miss Washtenaw County pageant. I must say that although nothing compares to the excitment of competing, its always nice to be watching and cheering friends on from the audience. The contestants looked beautiful, and it was a pleasure to see all of the new and familiar faces. I want to give a huge congratulations to the new Miss Washtenaw, Rachel Sweet. We have competed in pageants together over the past couple of years, and I am very happy to have been there as she accomplished what she has worked so hard for over the years. It just goes to show the tremendous amount of growth that this organization brings out of each of us!
This past weekend was busy, busy, busy, but so much fun! I had a great time in Mt. Pleasant helping promote the Miss Michigan Organization and Snapple, our awesome sponsor. The first thing I did when I arrived Friday evening was start learning the dance that was performed at the opening and halftime of the U of M vs. MSU tailgait party on Saturday. Nicole, did a great job choreographing, but I was so sore the next day! It was also great to see old friends and do some catching up. I got to meet several of this years Miss Michigan contestants and they were an absolute delight. It is undeniable that this program is the best place to make new friends.
This week is Fire Safety Week in Redford Township, and I had the opportunity to appear at the fire station on Sunday. There was lots of important information for families to learn about fire safety, and I had my own booth to sign autographs. I loved being in the community and seeing families out together having fun!
