So in case you haven't heard...Miss Arkansas, Alyse Eady, won 1st Runner Up at Miss America!!!!!! It is the closest we have come to the crown in SUCH a long time! I am so proud of Alyse! She is an amazing young woman, and I have thought so since I met her during her reign as Miss Arkansas Outstanding Teen several years back. If you missed her talent (and all of the news coverage it provoked) just go to YouTube and type in her name. She is incredible!!!
Even more exciting (and it also happened the same night as Miss America) my best friend and former college roomie, Whitney, got ENGAGED!!! She's been waiting on this rock for a while, and I am so happy for her and Tyler! They are an amazing couple and I am so happy for them! He proposed at her parent's house with almost her whole family there! So sweet! Her sister Blakelee (who is an amazing photographer and is going to take pictures of Ava soon!) took the pictures! Enjoy!!!
This is my favorite! He is hugging her, she's checking out the rock! HAHAHA!
But isn't it ADORABLE?!?!?!?!?!?!? I know. LOVE. Mine will be more like this one...only not Halloweenish....
