Fashion Shows and A Beauty Queen

My Nephew @ his private school's Fashion Show

Fashion Show- Harley Davidson Theme, look@ the Yorkie! Preppy Principal and BFF
Brighton Purses as part of the Silent Auction
Basket from Millie's Dancewear as part of the Silent Auction This month is flying by...we went to my nephew's fashion show earlier this month. The Fashion Show is the school's annual fundraiser. Tickets are sold, dinner is served and the students and some parents participate in a fashion show. There is also a silent auction. Last year I won a huge basket of Gold Canyon Candles and a basket of office supplies (I LOVE pens and office supplies)- so this was a must win. This year I place my bid on the candles and I sat at the table the last 15 minutes of the auction and I was outbid. Next year I am standing by the basket of candles until the auction closes! My parents donated some items- 2 Brighton bags (dedicated in memory of both of my grandmothers) and a PINK basket full of dance apparel- which was bought from my best friends shop.

Even though this is a blurry shot, the look on the other contestant's faces is priceless!
Last last weekend my Best Friend and I went to our cities "beauty" pageant...I am not sure if beauty pageant is politically correct, after all they referred to the traditional bathing suit competition as the physically fit portion of the competition. This was the first pageant I have ever attended and even though it was on a local level it was pretty fun. My BF's employee WON the competition. It was her first pageant and she truly was the winner- she was so genuine, smart and talented. Some of the other young ladies were "pageant veterans" and it was obvious that they simply wanted the crown. Miss Beauty Queen is now on her way to Fresno this summer for the Miss California competition! Have any of you participated in pageants?

I still call them "Beauty Pageants." They are still a big thing in the South. I was in one when I was about 16 and NEVER should have been. I definitely was not pageant material. But, I LOVE to go them, just love it!
