Can anyone say Junior Miss BARBIE, because today I defiantly felt like Tyra Banks in Life Size (“Dress Me!” that’s for you Kasey , Jessie, Erin) coming away from the day with a wardrobe complete with heals, pants, and shirts. I will be coming back to Washington, Missouri looking so trendy and so fresh and so clean! Yes be jealous sisters! But wait I am getting ahead of myself, lets see the my day started early at about six! I don’t know if you know this, but tiredness is not an option these two weeks because we are booked solid! After dressing , Danielle, A.J. (my host daddy), and I departed for the most beautiful destination on the planet (or at least what I have seen so far), Bellingrath Gardens! There we were treated to a delicious breakfast, I got adventurous and even tried the grits (not awful)! But I must say that my favorite thing they served was a tower of fruit consisting of strawberries, pineapple, oranges, basically you name it, it was there! I could have stared for days at its beauty (I am kinda a fruit freak if you didn’t know). We began the walk through the garden after breakfast, and lets just say heat and humidity plus girls in dresses equals lots of sweat and flat hair! But that didn’t even matter because the scenery was so breath taking. I know I have said I am never getting married, but if by some slim chance I happen to find Mr. Right, my wedding will be at the Bellingrath Gardens! We then were transported in a caravan of police vans (talk about official) and arrived at the rehearsal church. After sitting through a long, but informative talk we finally got to go see our new free cloths (Is that every girls dream or what?). I am just floured by all of the generous gifts!
Tonight was fabulous because after the fashion show we got to change into our western attire and tour the USS Alabama! Then we had a real southern style cookout complete with line dancing. Can I get a Yee-Haw y’all?! Even in the heat I didn’t miss a dance, but I did miss many steps! Everything has been so incredible and I just am so blessed! My next two days are of course busy sand I am staying over night at a camp so I will write again on Wednesday, I love everyone and thanks for supporting me!
P.S. I have the best host family and roommate ever!
