|We celebrated the night at Chili’s with delicious oreo molten lava cake. 2010 Queen, me, and 2011 Queen … who all lived in the same house!|
Remember this post? The pageant was a blast, honestly. Whoever thought that a non-pageant girl could have so much fun doing a pageant?
Quite a few people told me after that I was the “funny” contestant, which fits perfectly with my roommate telling me last week that I am that “awkward funny” girl. I’m glad that people appreciated my wit.
I ended up being selected as the first attendant, which means I received an SUU hoodie, homecoming tshirt, roses, and peanut butter M&Ms (only my favorite). I will also be in the homecoming parade with the queen & second attendant, sitting all fancy in a convertible. Can you believe it? And we walk on the field at halftime at Saturday’s game.
I’m glad that I decided to try out, because it’s been such a different & fun experience.
Here are some photos of the night:

Pre-talent portion with roommate (and 2011 Queen) Samae. I played a funny song that I wrote called, “Pedestrian Boy.” The crowd seemed to enjoy it! I wish I had recorded it.
|I had so many friends to support me after the pageant, including fellow tbirdnation blogger, Eric.|

Moral of the story? Take those chances. Even if they seem silly.
