Fashion Show Day!

With Mrs. Oregon (Mrs. Congeniality :)) and Mrs. Arizona - getting ready for rehearsals. They are both talented dancers with great stage presence!
So enjoyed chatting with Mrs. Maryland (she placed 1st runner-up!) before rehearsals. She served in the United States Army as a Captain and now helps Veterans find employment. I have so much respect for this lady!

Shared my backstage table with Mrs. Montana - she has to be one of the sweetest people I have ever met. Loved her!

Backstage in my amazing Seahawk Costume getting ready for the runway!
Making those Sea Gals jealous :)!

Next to my other feathery friend Mrs. North Dakota who actually won the Best Costume Award. Congratulations Tera Miller!

Today at Mrs. America I was able to wear my state costume which represents the Seattle Seahawks! Even though I didn't make the final cut when I tried out for the Sea Gals a few years ago, I can a least make up for it now as Mrs. Washington :)! My Director did an amazing job designing and making the costume herself - it took two weeks to complete. I can't wait to post pictures of it when I get home! It was so wonderful to put it to use for a great cause. I was able to model the costume in a fundraiser fashion show sponsored by Loews Resorts to benefit teachers in the classroom helping them purchase school supplies for the year. At any rate, it was a huge success! So happy we were able to make a difference during our time here. Well, got to now and get ready for another exciting day tomorrow!
