Thursday morning, it all officially started for the Miss America Class of 2011. We filmed video segments with Tall Pony Productions that will be shown on ABC.com, Missamerica.org, youtube and more! For dinner, we were hosted by Regalia and Mary Sullivan of the Miss Florida Organization for a great dinner at Maggiano's where we got to know each contestant a bit more. It was wonderful! Thank you!! Thursday prelims were once again exciting. Alabama took the talent award home with Michael Jackson pointe dance and Ohio took home evening gown. Alison looked gorgeous in her lemon-lime green chiffon dress and did an awesome job in her on stage question, answering quickly and perfectly!! We are just so proud of EVERYTHING she has done this week and I'm so excited for Saturday! I can't even make a Top 10!
We are on the bus home from Disney World right now. It was a great day with some fun filming, interviews and time in the Magic Kingdom, complete with Space Mountain! So we're on or way back to the hotel to shower and get ready for our dinner hosted at the Siegel Estate...excited!!
