A few days ago, I shared with you that I would be appearing on Fox 17 in Grand Rapids, and holy cow was I nervous! You can watch the video of my appearance above, which now that I’ve finally watched it a few days later was better than I had thought. You can see my hand as I reach for a PocketBac towards the end… I was shaking I was so nervous! I also look super tired. I guess that is what happens when you do this after being up a few times with your baby in the middle of the night. Oh yeah, and being on call. I chatted with people in the ICU a few times that night as well.
I have to admit, I arrived at Fox 17 thinking I looked kind of cute. My make up was done, my hair had been blown out, though on TV it looked a little flat, in person it was super cute. And then what happened? Miss Michigan, Elizabeth Wertenberger walked in to the room. Looking amazing. In all of her 23 year old pagent winner amazingness. She had on 5 inch heels (mine were almost 4, not too different), had a perfect tan and I swear she even had on false eye lashes. She looked amazing.
I really wanted to hate Elizabeth. But then I chatted with her a little in the bathroom. Yes, the bathroom. Turns out she grew up a few towns away from where I live now (I drive by it on the way to work all the time), she immediately asked questions about keeping her nails from splitting, so I told her about Biotin. She had on Sally Hansen Nail Effects in Cut it Out, and she was afraid to show me her hands because they were slightly chipped and grown out. That’s when I knew she was a normal girl and not some Stepford pagent girl! She is just a very sweet and normal person. I think for the first time in years I’ll be watching Miss America this January, just to cheer Elizabeth on.
