Mrs. Utah

A couple of weeks ago I was asked by my great friend Brigham if I would be an Emcee for the upcoming Mrs. Utah pageant. I don't dabble in the pageant circuit much, I think I've only been to one when my cousin (then the reigning Miss Utah) passed on her crown. But hey, a reason to get glammed up? I accepted.

This might surprise you, but I don't own an evening gown (right? I mean, who doesn't own an evening gown!). I looked for a few days trying to find something that was cool and formal and modest...apparently those 3 things to not exist in one dress. Well, in a dress that I can afford, anyway. Taking a tip from my brilliant Amelia, I decided to rent a 1930's dress from the Hale Theater. PS - that is not me, that's the picture from the theater's website, just so you can get a better look at the dress...because I'm nice like that.

It was a total smash!
The genius that is Mindi made a big flower for me to wear in my hair (you must check out her wares!). I loved that dress, I am seriously considering having 2 or 3 made in it's likeness. Then I will actually own an evening gown!

The hilarious Matt Mattson teamed up with me and we had an absolute ball, I could not have done the show without him! We did lots of shmoozing and smirking, it was fun. And hey! Maybe they'll ask us back - I'll surely have my own dress by then.
