Mrs. Idaho International Pageant

My wonderful Pageant Sisiter’s in our opening number dress.
Back stage pageant night. 

Taken after interviews.
After losing 100 pounds and competing in this pageant sure had me reflect on this past year. What an amazing year it’s been. I have learned so much about myself. My love for helping others has grown and grown and I sure love all I have been able to do with my platform.
Here Pictures from Pageant weekend.Wow! What a wonderful weekend it was. Sorry it took me so long to post but after the pageant I spent some time sleeping and time with my family. I started getting back to normal life sometime late Monday.
I had so much fun in the the Mrs.Idaho International pageant. It’s been 20 yrs since I did a pageant and to be on-stage was amazing.
I am happy to report I got in the Top 5 of 19 wonderful woman. I also won the Spirit of pageantry award AKA: Mrs. Congeniality and the Community Service Award. Both meant so much to my heart. I loved my pageant sisters and the wonderful Miss and Teens I got to know.I also love my community and have just had the best experience being able to spread my message.
. A big thank you to all of my sponsors and to everyone that showed up to the pageant. Thank you to everyone who gave me so much support.
I also want to thank my wonderful personal trainer Rebecca Carington . She has stood by my side these past 9 weeks and really not only trained me but lifted my spirits so high each and every time we saw each other.
To my family who I love so dearly. Thank you for being there for me through this whole journey. I love and appreciate you so much. 🙂 Jill
