This past Saturday I woke up at 6:00 AM to travel to Muskegon. I was feeling a little under the weather, but still excited to attend Nicole's (Miss Michigan) wardrobe showing and meet Katie Stam, our Miss America. We arrived just in time to hear Katie's speech about her year of service. She was wonderful! So poised, down-to-earth, and a pleasure to listen to and learn from. Later on for dinner, I had the honor of sitting with Nicole, Haley (Miss Michigan's Outstanding Teen), and Katie! After dinner, Nicole modeled her wardrobe for her week at Miss America. She looked stunning in everything, and I can't wait to see her in Vegas in January.
