“Here She Comes…”

“…Miss Ameeeeerica!”

The Miss America watch party at our friends’ Merri and Pete’s apartment was a blast!

Merri is a wonderful hostess and within five minutes of walking in the door I had a glass of my favorite kind of wine in my hand.

Relax Riesling

My parents gave me a bottle of Relax Riesling wine for my college graduation in the spring of 2007 and I’ve been obsessed with it ever since!

Aside from my favorite wine, Merri and Pete had a beautiful display of food… the majority of which was really healthy!

Fresh Fruit


The Spread

I am a fruit lover and gobbled up a lot of the delicious fruit. The grapes were perfect – really crunchy, but very sweet.

Merri also brought out homemade spinach artichoke dip which I ate a ton of as well. It was cheesy, creamy and homemade how was I to resist?

Unfortunately our sorority sister, Miss Florida, didn’t make it all the way in the pageant, but she looked beyond gorgeous and her body was smokin’. I gotta get on the Miss America fitness plan, STAT! 😉 Great job, Rachael! 

Before leaving, Ryan and I managed to stuff ourselves with tons of cookie dough and a billion oatmeal raisin chocolate chip cookies. Merri made a huge batch and we dug in!

Oatmeal Raisin Chocolate Chip Cookies

I had more than five… I am officially a cookie monster. 😀

I’m off to make breakfast. Pancakes are callin’ my name!

I hope you all have a relaxing Sunday. I’m going to try to swindle Ryan into seeing New Moon (the second Twilight movie) with me at the dollar movie theater since I still haven’t seen it. Wish me luck!

  1. I tried to watch the Miss America pageant, but I was too distracted by Clinton’s facial hair– what has he done?!?

  2. I watched it Miss America too! So bummed that Miss California didn’t win. She looked like the girl next door to me and I loved her personality.

  3. I’m pretty sure you are just as pretty and have just as good a body as Rachael!

    Who won?? Have a good Sunday!

  4. Daddy and I were watching and were impressed with the girls. Very pretty, in great shape and talented too! Sorry Rachel didn’t win, though. We hope you said hi to Merry from us!

  5. Ahhh I missed the pageant!!! 😦 Did I miss anything good??

    The healthy party-fare looks delicious! There’s nothing better than endless amounts of fresh fruit to snack on…..and cookies 😉

    I’m glad your going to see New Moon! It’s a good one. Although, it is a tiny bit of a let down if you’ve already read the book(s). I mean, you’ve kinda got to expect that when they try to compress a nearly 400 page book into a 2 hour film, so I’d say they did a pretty good job overall. And for me it was more difficult to take Edward and Bella seriously now that they’re huge movie stars (which wasn’t the case when the first film came out). Okay I’m rambling now…clearly I’ve got a lot to say when it comes to the Twilight series 😛

  6. nearly 600 pages ***
