Wow! I can't believe it has been just over a month since I was crowned Mrs. Michigan America 2010. And what an honor it was to share the stage with some of the most amazing women in Michigan! Well as they say ...I hit the ground running.

The week after my crowning I visited the Mrs. Indiana America Pageant and helped welcome a new sister queen, Jeanene Christy. I had a wonderful time! It was great to sit in the audience without the pressure of competing.

I had my first Official Photo Shoot with Tim Priest. I had a Blast -- Especially with the location shots. I felt like a Fashion Model. Throwing the first pitch and a radio interview with the West Michigan White Caps game was exciting. It went straight down the middle

…I only wish the Ball had reached the plate...LOL!

 Last week-end I had the time of my life with designer Jonathan Kayne. He was one of the top finalists from Bravo's hit TV show Project Runway Season 3 and was also featured on TLC's Gown Crazy. He is such a talent and it was quite a feeling to walk the runway with him at the end of the fashion show and present this artist to the audience. Judging by the applause his new Prom and Evening Gown Collection for 2010 was a hit with everyone there!
