A weekend at home!

This is my first weekend home in almost a month and I was so excited to see my parents and celebrate my mom's birthday. I won't tell you how old she is, but she looks more like my older sister than my mother. Happy Birthday, Mom! My dad and I gave her a gorgeous picture frame for the wall that says, " We may not have it all together, but together we have it all." How true that statement is. I am so insanely blessed by God to have the parents that I have. They have been beside me each step of the way and in all of my endeavors.

I also got to spend time with my Aunt and Uncle who will be leaving tomorrow morning for Germany and will be gone for seventeen days! Please keep them in your prayers. I loved seeing one set of my awesome grandparents tonight, and my grandfather experienced the "Hibachi grill" for the first time. Needless to say, he was not impressed and suggested Wendy's, McDonalds, or Burger King. What a hoot! I haven't laughed that hard in a long time.

I hope all of you are having a wonderful start to 2010 and that you all had a great Valentine's Day! I know some have mixed emotions about that holiday, but I find it nice to have the ones you love there regardless of whether they are a significant other or just being with family and friends. Johnny D. and I had a great weekend last weekend at the Jenn Cady photo shoot for their upcoming ad in "Four Points Magazine." Thank you all so much for inviting me to be a part of this experience, it was a pleasure working with you.

I cannot wait to see my "sisters" at workshop next month. It is always a great experience when we all come together at once for the first time! We have so many new, sweet, beautiful, and talented young ladies in the program this year. I can promise you, Miss Tennessee week will leave you with so many memories, and it will be one of the best weeks of your life.

I wish everyone a great weekend and week and check back next week for more updates. I will be headed back to Nashville to attend the last local of the 2010 cycle. Good luck to everyone competing and I hope to see you all soon!

God Bless!
