That One Time I Judged a Beauty Pageant

So I mentioned this last week but a couple weekends ago, I had the privilege of judging a beauty pageant for a local charity event.

I was kind of hoping it would be something like this…

 

Or maybe something like this?

 

But it was, unfortunately for my own amusement, a pageant full of very intelligent, sweet women with LOADS of talent. I got to see some incredible cultural dances and singing (and even some free-style rapping). It was the most random, surprisingly enjoyable evening I have spent in a really long time. And if it was a little cheesy, it was all part of the charm.

The contestants, emcees, and judges. I was so surprised they wanted me in a picture!

So I’ll just go ahead and check that off the bucket list.

What about you? Have you had a chance to do anything out of the ordinary lately?

That's awesome, Elizabeth! I love that it was something you wanted to do so badly, and you got to do it :) It sounds like a great time!

Wow what fun! The closest I've been to such an experience is knowing a few gals who entered in some beauty pageant contests. I worked in admissions at a local university and these gals entered in contests to garner scholarships!

Looks like a fun time!

I could have scratched that off my bucket list too. I was asked to judge our local school Miss Cradlebaord pagaent. I had to decline because that fell on same day as Dj's practice ):
