Where Being INfamous Pays Off

So, you know how I'm practically famous because I know people that are famous? (I like to pretend sometimes.)

Anyway, it totally worked in my favor last night! I asked the current Miss Idaho, Elise Davis, to come and speak to our Young Women. She did an AMAZING job. She talked about the pageant, and the reality show leading up to that. She went through the Young Women values and talked about how each one helped her in her experiences at Miss America.

She told us how Clinton Kelly, from TLC's What Not to Wear, came up to her after the evening gown competition, and told her she looked like Grace Kelly! (Now I'm only two degrees away from Clinton Kelly!) She talked about how when you're modest, people see you, not what you shouldn't be showing. Elise mentioned how faith and divine nature helped her realize that she was enough, and that it didn't matter what the judges thought about her, but what she thought about herself.

Elise did such an awesome job, and the girls and I loved having her for the night. She sang her competition piece for us, she answered the craziest questions, and she even let us wear her crown and take pictures.


Thanks a million billion, Elise!

Oh my gosh, that makes me 3 degrees from Clinton Kelly - yes! And what an awesome experience for the Young Women, way to go!

That is awesome.. you are giving these girls experiences to trace their actions after and to have someone that is in the spotlight upholding values will bear a lot of weight..( not like teen magazines now days) ... at least that's what I think. You are awesome Nat..Thanks for sharing!

I was wondering how that went! I think it is so great that Elise is still sticking to her values, despite her fame. I wonder if she wore the requisite two-piece swimsuit during that part of the competition, or if they let her do a one-piece. I forgot how tall Elise is. And Clinton Kelly - squeal! Love that man.

I was soooo impressed with her gown! Way to go, Elise! I actually went on a 'date' with her brother shortly before Tony and I started dating---so that makes me three-ish degrees from Clinton, too! ha ha. I'm sad...

Oooooh you look pretty :) Sounds like such a fun night!

What a neat experience for everyone! And since I know you, that makes me a little INfamous too. Kinda.

Nat, great idea. Almost makes me wish I could be a Beehive again so I could hear her speak :)
