Miss Iowa USA 2010

What a FUN day in Ames, IA! On December 13, Ryan and I attended Miss IA and Miss Teen IA USA Finals. Thanks for always standing by my side Ry ... what a FABULOUS Mr. Iowa!

Pictured above with Loni, Michelle and Chelsea Gauger ~ Miss IA USA 2009. Chelsea did a wonderful job representing IA at Miss USA in Las Vegas and their wasn't a dry eye in the house during her final words as Miss IA USA.

Michelle, Laura and I stopped in at a great store in downtown Ames. "It's All About Me" is a wonderful shop owned by a very friendly and vivacious woman named Kathy. She carries the "Fight Like A Girl" merchandise that was initiated in Ames. The three of us have loved ones in our family that have been touched by Breast Cancer. We are excited to say we will be partnering with Fight Like a Girl this year for a fund raising even to be held at "It's All About Me" ... what a GREAT opportunity!!

Yet another photo opportunity at "It's All About Me."
