We had another fun meeting to prepare for the upcoming pageant. Beth Kovacevich Mrs. Washington 1996 hosted the workshop in her beautiful home. Kristal Grimstead Mrs. Washington 2003 also was there to help out. We had a great time getting to know everyone better and hear their stories of why they are running for Mrs. Washington 2011. We have such a diverse group of amazing women who truly want to make a difference.

Mrs. Seattle Tamara Deporter and I helped out at the Seattle Wedding Show for our designer friend Irina. Irina is the owner of Ateile Coutoure. She creates amazing beautiful original works of art. She specializes in wedding gowns. She is an inspiring woman who works hard and treats everyone she meets with such love and care. It is truly important to her to bring out the best in people by creating clothing that will help them to feel beautiful and confident.
The show was bustling with blushing brides! It was fun to get to chat with them and listen to their excitement on their upcoming weddings. The fiances that attended were so sweet and you could tell so many of these couples were head over heels in Love! As Mrs. contestants it was fun to be an example of successful married women. Brides need to remember there is more to marriage than just the wedding!

December 23rd my son Jordan joined me in delivering meals to homebound seniors in Olympia. The meals were all prepared by volunteers and delivered by volunteers. We went to an apartment complex downtown that is managed by Chere. She helped us with a list and kept any of the meals that we could not deliver for the recipients to pick up later. The building has 6 floors so we had a few other volunteers help cover the building. All of our meal recipients were home for us to give them their meals. We met many wonderful people who were grateful for the delicious meals. One of our favorites was "Larry the Fox" as he is called. We spent quite awhile chatting with him. He has lead a very interesting life and is an amazing artist.
When we were done delivering the meals my son told me how great it made him feel to do something to help others. I am very proud of him for working with me without complaints! He is such a sweet caring boy. I hope he will continue to work as a volunteer throughout his life.
