1st Board Meeting and Judges Critique

I woke up this morning with the realization that as exhausted as I was, I was also more excited than I've ever been about living this next year. The first item of business as Miss WV is to meet with the Board of Directors (who gave up their Father's Day to invest in me) to ensure that I accomplished everything I envisioned throughout my year and to begin the preparations to successfully represent our state at Miss America.

In the Judge's critique, I was somewhat surprised to learn that their suggestions for me were the following:

1. Dye your hair the auburn color of your mother's (mom says they must have been paying more attention to her than to me - haha!)

2. Pick a different song, possibly with more range

3. Wear eight-inch heels in swimsuit, "Let those legs go on and on"

After our meeting with the Board, mom and I and Misty McMinn (my great friend who happens to be my Director) went out to eat and blew that diet out at Eat-N-Park. I had eggs, bacon, french toast, two bowls of soup, salad and cake! Whoohoo!!

Went to bed at 8:00 p.m., and did well to stay up that long!
