Princess & Fairy Godmothers???

According to my new blogging lineup, this is the day I'll explore world issues & headlines, humor, and all that encompasses Sheri--yup, that's what the 'S' in SA Larsen stands for.

For those of you who are unaware, I'm a contestant vying for the Mrs. Maine America 2012 title, which will be passed to the winner on February 5th. Eek!! That's just around the corner. I've been lax in sharing my pageant experience with you, but I'm about to change that.

Last weekend, I took part in what we called a Princess Ice Cream & Teas Social. The reigning Mrs. Maine was conducting a fundraiser to support a Habitat Humanity site. She invited this year's contestants to join her.

It was amazing!! Children from all over arrived to meet, and share ice cream and tea with their favorite princess. We even had story time. I played the role of Princess Ariel from The Little Mermaid. To my shock, Ariel was a huge hit. I must have taken 600+ photos with the sweetest little ones and signed autographs. Boy, do I have a new appreciation for celebrities. Stand up. Bend down. Up. Down. (Little kids are short, eh.) But taking those photos with them and making them smile was worth it! Plus, my thighs got a heck of a workout.

There weren't just little girls in attendance, either. Some of the little boys came to see their favorite girl--I mean princess. A few times the mothers would mouth to me, "He has such a crush on Ariel." It was the cutest thing ever!! (I feel a picture book story coming on...)

I'll let these photos tell the rest of the story.

HAVE A GREAT WEEKEND!! Ooh, I'll be blogging a bit later today. I have another TV interview for the pageant. ALERT UPDATED! Bummer, it's 4:30 a.m. and I'm staring out my bedroom window, while watching the weather channel. Looks like I won't be able to make the one hour and a half trek to the Television studio. The roads are too icy and it's still snowing. Kiddos probably won't have school, either. Boo....
