DAY 6 of My MISS TEENAGE CANADA PAGEANT Journey
After a good night’s sleep we headed down from our rooms for a tasty and healthy breakfast. We had a big day ahead of us so a filling breakfast was exactly what we needed.
We had a 5 ½ hour rehearsal today to practice our opening number, our swimsuit and evening gown walk. With a lot of hard work and practice we finished all of the routines and now we can dance even more confidently.
After rehearsal was over we headed back to our rooms, grabbing a tasty chicken wrap lunch on the way. We packed up all of our evening gowns, bathing suits, shoes and accessories for Preliminaries and started our preparations.
Thank you once again to the ladies who did a wonderful job with our hair and makeup! Everyone looked so elegant!
Preliminaries were so much fun! I thought I would have been more nervous but I was just so excited to strut in my bikini and then show off my evening gown. I could hear my loud and enthusiastic cheering squad when I hit the stage in my bathing suit and knowing they were there calmed my nerves. I could hear them all saying, “Just have fun” in my head, so that’s exactly what I did. All of the girls were amazing! Each and every one looked so beautiful. The gowns were stunning! Everyone had a gown that suited them and showed their specific personality. It was an incredible display of colour, bling and elegance.
My roommate Katie and I are relaxing now, watching movies and blogging. We were still too excited and pumped up about tonight to sleep but we will have to force the eyes to close. Tomorrow is a BIG DAY! A full day of rehearsals followed by the GALA/TALENT event. I can’t wait to perform tomorrow night and to get a few minutes to visit with my family and my M.T.O.E cheering squad.
