Beauty night was a definite success! All of the queen contestants came together at the Borgia auditorium to learn how to walk, talk, and look like royalty from two wonderful women: Mary Kay Daugherty and Carla Strnad. We got a chance to practice walking on stage, and let me tell you, it’s a lot harder than it looks. I think we all decided we were going to practice all summer to ensure that our walk is perfect for the big night, or in my case, to a least make sure I do not fall on my face! We also learned some great makeup tips that we could use on and off the stage. It’s amazing all of the tips and tricks I have missed out on over all of these years. To top the night off, we were all able to sit down and enjoy some pizza that was so generously donated by Imo's in Washington. It was another great night with the wonderful group of contestants, and it only makes me more excited to see what the rest of the summer has in store for us!
