Day 1 – Arrival in Las Vegas

I had planned to travel with Adrianna Sgarlata, Miss Virginia, on the flight from Dulles to Las Vegas… so imagine our surprise when Miss West Virginia (Tiffany) and our Miss America photographer (Bruce) were on our flight as well!

Adrianna arranged for us to be treated royally in the Red Carpet room before our flight. There, we ran into Senator John Ensign, from Nevada, who chatted with us, gave us interview tips, and gave us our preliminary welcome to his home state of Nevada.

We were greeted in Vegas with limos for our arrival at the Aladdin. My roommate is Miss Lousiana, Jaime Wilson, and she is amazing. We are all set to have an incredible time!
But we set to work immediately with a wardrobe check, a welcome reception, and a preview screening of our CMT show, Pageant School: Finding Miss America. (My limited air time isn’t that bad – be sure to watch on January 26th!)
Enjoy the pictures and be sure to check back as I will be adding updates throughout the pageant!
