Good morning! How’s life treatin’ ya on this beautiful Monday morning??
Just catching up from the weekend like me? Here’s a little bit of what you may have missed on the ‘ol blog:
So last night, I ended up getting totally sucked in to watching the Miss USA Pageant.
I’ve always loved watching pageants on TV and grew up watching them quite frequently with my mom. We would always try to see if we could pick who was going to make it into each round and we’d comment on all the evening gowns. I actually really loved the color of the California’s dress, Alyssa Campanella, who actually went on to win the pageant.
Now, if you’ve ever checked out the Q&A Page here, then you probably already know that I have competed in the Miss New York pageant…twice. Crazy, right?
Please don’t think any less of me.
I decided to enter the pageant both in 2005 and 2006, just for fun and on a whim, since it was being held right in Albany. Had I needed to drive more than 15 minutes to compete, I wouldn’t have even bothered. I honestly kind of look back and laugh about it now…I really am not the typical pageant type.
Both years, I ended up making it to be a semi-finalist, which I thought was awesome, seeing as though I was going into it with an “I don’t care” attitude, and other girls there had been working their whole lives at this sort of thing.
It really boggled my mind.
So it’s really kind of fun now to watch these pageants on TV, knowing some of the stuff that really goes on “behind the scenes.” I’m not going to lie…some girls are beautiful, some are genuine, and some are total bitches. Yep, I went there! And if there’s anything else you want to know…just ask.
On another note, I couldn’t help but make some observations during the swimsuit competition.
There’s no doubt that some of these girls have some rockin’ bodies (Jay made sure to watch this part too). Especially Alabama…she had some killer muscles! But some of the girls were so thin and they just did not look good, in my opinion. I don’t know…
What are your thoughts on pageants? Good/Bad? Do you like to watch them?
Alright, moving on! Let’s talk breakfast…
Thanks to a dead camera battery that is charging, we’re recycling some photos this morning. No harm, no foul.
Iced coffee was consumed immediately, and tasted delicious as ever.
I also whipped up a batch of creamy buckwheat using this recipe.
This morning’s bowl looked very similar, only with a little less PB, since what you see here is my beloved PB2 which I still have yet to restock on.
I really have to put that on my to-do list today…along with cleaning the rest of the house that exploded with all of our vacation belongings as soon as we got home this weekend!
