The day started with meeting all of the ccontestants. There where 6 competing in the Miss North Metro portion and 3 in the Teen portion. We all meet early on Sunday morning and went through what the day would consist of and the girls started rehersing. I'm not going to lie, it was nice to not have to worry about competing! Beth and I just sat back and watched and read our scripts a little because we were the emcees for the pageant.
After a little rehersal, the girls started to get ready for their interviews. The morning had already flew by, and I had about 3 hours left of my reign. The Teen contestants went first and I prayed that they would all do well. I knew that any one of them would make an amzing titleholder and I wish that 3 titles could have been given away that night.
Once the pageant finally started, I tried not to focus on what was coming up.... my farewell. I focused on making this pageant entertaining, while also enjoying every moment and soaking up any minutes I had left with my crown on.
The pageant went smoothly as ever, and I would like to congradulate the new Miss North Metro, Mary Peterson and the new Miss North Metro Outstanding Teen, Maren Anderson! I'm so proud to call them both my friends and I know that they will have an awesome year together and will not disappoint.
With that, I would like to say thank you. I thank everyone who takes time out of their busy schedule to read my blogs, and to everyone who has ever supported me with a kind word or gesture. I don't think you truly realize the affect it has on me. I'm so grateful to be surrounded by such awesome people who care so much about me! Thank you for making my year a great one.
Although this will be my last blog post on this website, I encourage you to follow my other blog at http://www.beonthemove.weebly.com/
