It’s Got To Be Someone
Someone has to finish last and that was me 😀 I got dead last. Out of 19 girls. I’m not really upset by it either. I felt I looked good and held my own among the youngsters. I also have to remember that this was a HUGE show and girls were out for blood. If you placed in the top 5 you qualify for the National level which is what most of these girls strive for. I just need more confidence and sass on stage.
So I picked Angela up at 9:30a Friday. It was so good to see her! Then we headed back towards Greenwood and hit the Nature’s Pharm and CVS. She had never had maple nut goodies and they sounded good to me. We drove to Kentucky and checked into our hotel room. Friday seemed like it took forever! I ate my dry chicken without drinking water and watched Angela get to eat. She even got PB! LOL! Friday night we had a meeting and then started tanning. That is the suckiest part. I hate that tanner. You really never know if it’s going to go on well or not. We fall asleep and then wake up for the big day!
That morning we put some more coats of tanner on. We get our makeup on and fix our hair. I did a last minute suit change decision. I was so dehydrated and tired. I couldn’t sleep that night. We made sure our heater wasn’t up to high so that our tanner wouldn’t sweat off. Stacey and Tina, did ya catch that? Got our crap packed up and headed to the venue. Walking over there took FOREVER! It was like we were in a hamster tube walking across the streets of Louisville. The girls were all real nice and it wasn’t tense at all. Some of the girls were VERY serious though. I guess if you are a competitive person you should be. We also met Genie in the hamster wheel! Genie you are so adorable! She has that sweet suthern ackcent. Her butt was the size of 1 of my butt cheeks. I gave her some of our treats to enjoy and she told me she did 😉
I got up on stage and it felt good. We didn’t get to walk or anything just take 2 steps forward, hit 2 poses and get back in line. That was fine with me. Did I mention how tired I was? So we got done with prejudging and it was back through the hamster wheel to the hotel where we took naps. When it was time to get up I would have rather just slept than go back. We were in for a long night. There were 200 competitiors. To make a long story short we got back on stage and did it all again. The girl to my left won overall. I was happy for her. She was a sweet girl. Finally…time to go back to the room, shower and eat!
I immediately hopped in the shower. Yes, I chose that over eating. After the shower I ate some PB&J, blue chips, guacamole, salsa, Stacey’s Pita Chips, and dessertS. Angela brought some ooey gooey butter cakes and they were SO yummy! I just found a recipe online and i’m going to make them for Thanksgiving. Now that i know what’s in them though I will never eat them again LOL! We also had some Hawaiian Bread rolls! I had PB&J on mine. We were feeling sick and went to bed. I was up at 5:30a like clockwork though.
We got our stuff packed up and headed back north. On the way home we hit Cracker Barrel. I got egg beaters and oatmeal. We split pecan pancakes. OMG, those are SO good! Then we went to the Russel Stover’s outlet. It wasn’t open. We went to Walmart and Angela picked up some more hawaiian rolls to take back home to her hubs. I knew she’d like them. So headed back to the outlet and they had samples here and there. Some were sugar free though and I WILL NOT eat those. I am also the person who bites the truffle and doesn’t like what’s inside and puts it back. Most of mine went in the trash. Then we head to the Taylorsville outlet. I wanted her to see the Harry and David outlet. We went in there and the lady says would you like a sample. Just out of habit I said no, then thought YeS! Whatever it was was so good. We then MADE ourselves go to the Rocky Mountain Chocolate Factory. Yes, we had to twist each others arms. I got an iced cappicino truffle and Angela got a bear claw pretzels rod and a bear claw carmel apple. They were SO good!
Time for lunch. Angela was craving a burger. We stopped at Steak and Shake. She doesn’t have these where she lives. Burger satisfaction complete. I had a piece of chicken and baked beans (bean crock). Then we headed back to the airport. I was so sad to see her leave. I could have cried. It was at that moment that I remembered what this weekend was really about.
