Miss America has arrived

I have been in Las Vegas since Thursday! I was reunited with 51 lovely ladies from all over the country and have been in rehearsal and making appearances with them for the last few days. We have been all over Vegas!..touring the strip, eating at various restaurants, driving go-carts, going to see Phantom of the Opera, meeting the Mayor of Las Vegas, walking in a fashion show at the Fashion Mall, and so much more!! They have been keeping us busy and tied to a tight schedule, but it has been a blast! The weather is beautiful during the day, although we're inside rehearsing, but at nighttime, it gets chillllly!

They have decided to put in a production number like the Miss America Pageant used to have. Let me tell you..I am SO glad that we have production numbers at Miss Delaware, because it sure helps a "non-dancer" like me to catch onto the dance moves! We picked up the steps pretty quickly and the number looks awesome! I can't wait for everyone to see it!

Tomorrow is the very first night of stage competition. I will be competing in the talent portion tomorrow, On-Stage Question on Wednesday, and Swimsuit and Evening Gown on Thursday. I can't wait!! It's amazing to be on the Miss America stage looking out into the empty seats knowing that in less than 24 hours, I'm going to be performing there for thousands of people! What an experience!!

Don't forget to watch the last episode of Countdown to the Crown on Friday at 10pm on TLC. If you happen to miss the episode, it reruns at 12am, and 3pm the next day! This is the big voting episode so stay tuned!

Also, remember that Miss America airs live on TLC on Saturday, January 24. This will be finals night...after we have all completed our preliminary competition.

Wish me luck!! =D
