Feliz Cinco de Mayo, amigos! Tonight, my roommates and I are celebrating the Mexican holiday with some homemade Thai cuisine...authentic, right? :-) So, anyway, I apologize for my prolonged absence and lack of posts lately - my schedule has just been crazy! Crazy, but exciting, I should add.
April just flew by, and I cannot believe that I am now only three weeks away from graduation! During the month of many showers - especially in Ithaca - I traveled to Staten Island for the Miss New York State workshop, enjoyed a giant hot dog (see previous post), burned off the hot dog and officially chose my evening gown and talent dress for the state pageant, and spent a weekend at home with my family and friends for Easter. Okay, so I know that I have already told you all about my trip to S.I. and the "giant wiener" as Shelby likes to call the infamous Fuddrucker's hot dog, but it was one of the best hot dogs, and experiences at the workshop, so I had to mention it again! For details, check out previous posts! Now, I can't tell you exactly what my dresses will look like, but I will say that A Touch of Grace and Kathy Lettiere in Watertown, NY, is THE PLACE TO GO! I've not once had a bad experience, and Kathy is wonderful! She has been so gracious and helpful through this entire process, and let me tell you, it has most definitely been a process! The gowns are beautiful, but furthermore, the service, care, and LOVE that you feel once you walk through Kathy's doors is amazing, and I always look forward to going there, even just for a visit with her! Plus, I just love trying on any and ALL dresses that my mom, Kathy, Shelby, and Sue throw at me! :-) Now that I have my dresses all set, I will really miss trips to A Touch of Grace. So Kathy, I know you this already, and if you are reading, if you ever need someone to play dress up, let me know!
Even though May is just beginning, I can tell you that it is a busy month now, and it is going to be busy right up until Miss New York in June! Good busy, as my mom says....busy, but all good things! Well, except for all of these final papers and assignments! The good thing is that, once all of this work is done and out of the way, I will be on my way to graduation...and best of all....SUMMER! So, here's what in the works for the next few weeks....
