New Jersey International Pageants

After D.C., Rachel and Ashlee (and Ashlee's mom) stayed at my home so that the three of us could attend the New Jersey International Pageant together on Saturday, March 15, 2014.  We clapped happily for three new queens embarking on an incredible opportunity!

I am especially proud of one teen contestant, Sarah, who competed for the second year in a row.  Sarah wears a lot of my clothing (fun to be the same size!).  She really looked beautiful on the stage and I am so proud of her improvement in performance over last year.

Congrats to our NJ titleholders! Miss Teen NJ International Alexandra Marschall, Miss NJ International Allison Sharkey, and Mrs. NJ International Lea Moelk!

Before the pageant, I showed the girls a bit of Newtown, PA. We took a quick walk at Tyler State Park and enjoyed lunch at the Farmer's Market.

Tyler state park is where I plan to do many many walks with Kevin, Jr after he is born.  My close pageant girlfriends already purchased me an incredible "off-road" stroller so that KJ can enjoy the park with Mommy (and for some walks with future God-Mommy Susan, Mrs. PA International 2008, too!).

Check out Sami Cessna's fabulous green velvet dress - it is a vintage piece from her family member's closet; she paired it with costume jewelry from her grandmother.  I thought she looked incredibly regal!

What I Wore: ASOS maternity dress + Stella and Dot Jewelry + LK Bennett heels
