2 Months Away!!!!! WHAT?!?

Hello All! State time is fast approaching and the amount of work I have to do before then is outrageous!! The last few weeks have been very busy. I bought my gown and have had many meetings and interview practice with my “Dream Team.” Working on my talent and frantically looking for a basic black tutu that I like. On a personal note my boy friend left last month for his internship with the Buffalo Bills. He is one of four intern strength and conditioning coaches and is hoping to get a position in June! I miss him very much but it’s actually perfect timing. I can really focus on prepping for states while he’s gone! LOL

I had an AMAZING photo shoot for my state pictures. I want to share some of the pictures with you. The photographers name is April McClintock and I would recommend her to any one! She’s great with families, babies, high school seniors, and even models. She is super innovative and a total perfectionist. April made me feel so comfortable and I had a great time working with her. You can check out more of her work and contact her on her website at
Pat was able to visit for my birthday! He brought me a autographed Lee Evans Jersey!

April McClintock- gotta love her!

This one is my favorite!
