Post Pageant

Whew. 
Hear that?  That's the sound of exhausted pageant girls everywhere.
We all stayed up until about ten last Sunday night to watch Miss America, the most coveted title in the nation.  I was especially rooting for Miss Alabama, Caitlin Brunell. I'm happy to say that she placed in the top ten! WOO HOO!

The new Miss America is another New Yorker, Kira Kazantsev (follow her @missamericaorg).
Many people think that her talent was a little, er, "less challenging" than others.

While I will admit that banging a cup and singing "Happy" by Pharell is much less of a standard pageant talent than ballet en pointe, playing the piano, or opera, her talent was more entertaining.  Most people out there who aren't familiar with pageantry are more likely to relate to someone singing a popular song rather than someone singing an aria in a foreign language.  The judges just picked their favorite contestant, which means she rocked her interview and made a lasting first impression.

I think Kira's going to do a fantastic job as the new Miss America, and I'm looking forward to watching how she takes the pageant's platform to the next level.

Whew again.
That's just the sound of me trying to unwind from my own pageant experience.  For those of you who don't know, I'm currently holding a national title, and so I'm trying to get in a few more appearances before I have to give it up in November.
Yesterday was the North Alabama State Pageant, and it was a blast!

I had so much fun being with all the contestants, and I can't wait until Nationals in November!

Love,
