If I could eat a delicious breakfast in the beautiful Bellingrath Gardens with my wonderful host dad and the junior misses every morning for the rest of my life, I would die a happy junior miss! It was such a great way to start the day, even though it was followed by a photo shoot in the sweltering heat...:/
Afterwards, most of the day was filled with orientations and costume checks and pretty much just logistical stuff with a little bit of bonding time with the other junior misses crammed into the breaks! But when we finally got to put on our western gear for the line dancing extravaganza, I got more than excited! And as Texas' junior Miss I got a lot of comments like "So do you wear these kinda clothes to school?" (in regards to my plaid farm-girl get up and boots) and "you must practice line dancing a lot in Texas." after each I just tried to muffle a chuckle an respond in the least sarcastic manner, stereotypes really are laughable!
But I really did enjoy line dancing with the Dekle's! Mama D can really bust a move! :)
We also independently toured the USS Alabama which was so awesome!
*random fact* did you know that during hurricane Katrina, the employees of the flight museum and the memorial center drove their cars onto the USS Alabama and took shelter there while the hurricane passed? But then when it was done, the bridge had blown away and they had to wait 3 more days to be rescued! That was the most interesting fact I learned today!
Well I'm headed to bed now! Going to Camp Grace tomorrow!
Oh and shout out to Ms. Wilson! I love the FB group, you are too sweet!! :)
