My Miss America Journey - Day 6

WOW! Competing on the Miss America stage is more incredible than I ever imagined! I felt no nerves tonight, just pure excitement!

I felt really good about my piano performance (though it is hard to remember because it all seems to be a blur), but all in all it was just plain fun and exciting. I sure hope I get a chance to do it again on Saturday night!

I must say that the best part of today was seeing my family and friends afterwards at visitation. It’s so funny because I just saw them a week ago, but when you are in this semi-secluded world you develop even greater appreciation for those who love you. You don’t get to talk to family or friends much at all so you feel as if you have been cut off from the real world for a week!

This evening’s preliminary winners were Miss Hawaii for lifestyle and fitness and Miss North Carolina for talent. Her contemporary clogging dance was extremely entertaining and Miss Hawaii is, of course, beautiful! Both awards were very well deserved.

As the week continues, it just gets more and more exciting and fun. Tomorrow I will have my Quality of Life interview, and guess who is interviewing me? None other than Katie Stam (one of my role models!), Kellye Cash, and Ericka Dunlap. I can’t tell you how much I am looking forward to this! This interview will take place at 9am (Wednesday), so please continue to keep me in your prayers.

Thank you all for your support! When I got back to my room tonight, I had over 60 emails and alerts from facebook... I feel pretty special. :) May the journey continue…
