Miss Utah Preliminary Nights

Me and My Mom

Lizzy and Me

Me and Carly

As most of you know I am a Pageant lover and can't seem to get enough! So the past few days I have been up at the Miss Utah Pageant helping and cheering on a few girls that I have been helping prepare for the pageant! I actually should say I am cheering them all on, because I know the hard work, dedication, emotional and physical stress, sleepless nights, and excitement that goes into competing! I competed at Miss Utah twice and was in the Top Ten my last year! It's so much fun but a very draining process! Being that I was a past Miss UVSC, I have to put that out there because as a mom you kinda feel like that's all you have ever done in your life, so its nice to remember the things I did before I was engulfed in Motherhood, I love to be asked to help any of the UVSC now UVU girls! Carly Tooke-Condie and I went up early Tuesday morning to help Christina Lowe with her Talent Rehearsal and to watch the other rehearsals. We then went to the Gateway and shopped and had some lunch and went back to our hotel to check in and get ready for the first preliminary night of competition! All the girls did awesome and Christina's song, that we have been helping her with, turned out AMAZING! So then we chit chatted with all our old friends and pageant junkies before we retired back to our room for the night. The next day we did about the same thing, and also went to dinner before the competition. My mom came to dinner and the pageant and it was fun to have her there like the good ole days! The only hard part about being at Miss Utah was that I had to leave Presli and Mike for a few days! Thank you so much to My Mom, Mike's Mom Lu, and My Grandma who all took care of Presli! Love you guys! So I will go back up Saturday night to watch the Final Night I can't wait to see who will come out the new Miss Utah!
