Tuesday June 30 - Its time to tackle the Mrs. America application. This will be a challenge but well worth the effort. Information asked for on the application include: favorite recipe, community involvement information, biography, most admired woman essay, and anecdotal experiences! I'll be working this until further notice...

Wednesday July 1 - Today I will travel to Louisville for my second hair appointment with QM! I appreciate all the time and effort Jo Ann and the team at Jr.'s Salon and Spa take to make my hair its best. I also have a feature pic with information today in The Lexington Herald Leader Newspaper.

Friday July 3 - My evening gown is IN at Miss Priss! WOW - its even more gorgeous than I imagined. Husband Cory, Queen Mum, and Elizabeth at Miss Priss give a thumbs up ;) Together we find a slammin' cocktail dress at Miss Priss to wear at one of cocktail attire events at Mrs. America!

Monday July 6 - My official Mrs. Kentucky thank you notes arrive today ;) I'm inspired to get busy and let all the wonderful Mrs. Kentucky sponsors know how much I appreciate the opportunities they have provided

Tuesday July 7 - 12:30 pm appearance on WLEX 18 TV News (Lexington, KY). I had a fantastic time on air with Dia D. and Lee C. talking about Fitness for the Family Foundation as well as upcoming appearances. In the WLEX green room I had the pleasure of meeting Representatives from Bluebell Ice Cream (they brought new flavors to WLEX!)!

July 10 - I have been looking forward to this event for more than a month! Tonight I attended the Lexington Legends Baseball game and threw out the first pitch! Husband Cory has been working with me to "practice" throwing out the opening pitch with a correctly measured area in our backyard. His serious approach to our pitch drills left me astonished. He was equally dazzled that I could throw the ball "like its on a rope" in 4 inch heels!
