~There She Is...Miss America!!!~

I was so lucky this past week to go to Vegas with some girlfriends for the Miss America Pageant!!! Our darling Miss Utah, Christina Lowe, who is a former Miss UVU like me and my friend Carly (who I went with). Carly and I have had the privilege of helping Christina over the past few years in her pageant life...Carly was her back stage stylist all week at Miss America and I tagged along for the experience! This is just some of the fun pictures we took while there...in random order...Christina did Amazing and made it to the Top 15! We were so proud and I am so grateful for all my wonderful family and friends who helped with my kids and my incredible Hubby who let me escape for 5 days to have this once in a lifetime opportunity!!! Love you guys!
