Miss San Joaquin County Pageant and IHOP National Pancake Day!

Me and my friend, Emily :)

A candid shot before leaving for the pageant
Hi all! Life never seems to slow down, does it? :) Between all of the tests, projects, and assignments, and preparing for competitions, I managed to take a break over the weekend to support my friend Ashley, who competed at Miss San Joaquin County. There was also an open pageant link with Miss San Joaquin County, which was Miss Central California Regional and Miss Greater Delta Valley. It was a wonderful show! Ashley did a wonderful job. I also saw a few contestants that I competed with at Miss Gavilan Hills/Miss Northern California Regional last year, including my friend Emily and the winner of Miss Greater Delta Valley, Millie Grgas. Miss Central California Regional went to Prisca Shiralian and Miss San Joaquin County went to MacKenzie Freed, who I met at Beezie Chapman's Pageant Camp in June. I was so excited for Beezie because 2 of the 3 titleholders were her clients!

One of the cutest parts of the pageant was the adorable little dance that the princesses performed for us. The also came into the audience and gave us Mardi Gras beads. So cute! I also got to see and hang out with Julianna, the current Miss Yosemite Valley, and Jennifer, a contestant competing in Miss Solano with me, but we didn't get any pictures! I also did not get any pictures with my friend Ashley, but I got to tell her what a wonderful job she did the next day during Miss Sonoma County rehearsals.

Me enjoying my pancakes this year!
Fast forward a few days to yesterday, National Pancake Day! :) After going to a Marketing Club meeting with the current Miss Sonoma County, I went to the Rohnert Park IHOP to celebrate pancakes and donating to the Children's Miracle Network Hospitals! I went with two of my dear friends and coworkers, Lauren and Daniela. The pancakes were wonderful and I was so sad to take my last bite! We even got to put our names on balloons, which is something I didn't do last year. This visit was less impromptu than last year so I was very thankful to do my part and have enough time to relax. I can't wait until next year!

 P.S.: 10 Days until Miss Solano and 24 Days until Miss Sonoma County!!
