It’s finally here.  I am beside myself with excitement.  Not even nervous (yet!), just proud and happy and READY! The hard work is done.  All the pep talks that all of YOU and Justin and my family and friends have been giving me has worked wonders on my mind because I feel so READY!!

I had the best day yesterday!  Started off getting my hair and make up done.  We went with a curly look for my hair because it was rainy and humid and my hair would have just frizzed out if we flat ironed it.

Then headed over for my photo shoot with JW Atherton, otherwise known as Coach A.  I had the time of my life!  It was so fun!  Coach A and his wife are the best!

After the photo shoot, I had a couple of hours to kill, so I stopped by my Mom’s office so she could see my makeup.  She was a little shocked by how much smaller I was since last week, but after being around me and showing me off to her co-workers (HOLLA!!) my appearance became less shocking!  Being in the mindset that I am right now, I forget that my appearance may be a little shocking to others.  She was beaming with pride, though, and I sure felt like a million bucks (and a little embarrassed!)!!

I finally made it home and got to relax with Justin for a little over an hour.  He thought I looked awesome!  He has never seen me with that much makeup on because I have never had that much make up on!

Then it was time to head back down town for my spray tan.  I hung out with the girls after we all got tanned and we got ready together in the bathroom for the athlete’s registration/meeting.

Once the meeting was over, I didn’t stick around to mingle.  I was tired and hungry!  I had one more thing to eat….STEAK!  As soon as I pulled in, Justin fired up the cast iron skillet and made one of his awesome filet mignons!  It was delicious!

I didn’t sleep much last night, maybe 3 or 4 hours?  My nose is stuffed up this morning.  Cold? or Sinuses?  I can’t really tell.  I don’t feel bad, I just sound bad!  Oh well!  Don’t have time to worry about that.  I took an Aleve so hopefully that does something!

I’m off to get my hair and makeup done again, tan touchups and then I hit the stage at 10:30am for prejudging!!
