Photographer Joe Pier
6:00am It's swimwear photo shoot day! I wake up and workout. This is right outside of the area near the pool where the Junior Teens are beginning their photographs. I spot pretty Jr Teen Shania Weaver, she is a knock out!

9:00am I'm photo ready! Before leaving Virginia, Lucinda from Face Value Salon in Charlottesville helped me prepare my hair, and Gigi Curtin, my Mary Kay rep in Richmond, helped with my makeup color and skincare. I feel like a million bucks! My choice is a red Venus swimsuit. I love the cut of the suit! I join the other Ms. candidates near the pool and wait for our photos. Photographer Joe Pier and his assistant Eduardo are great!

10:00am Off to rehearsal again. Today we are learning the preliminary opening number to Lady Gaga's "I Was Born This Way." The Ms. delegates will be in preliminaries with the Teen delegates. We then have a whole new Parade of Gowns to learn. It's amazing the work that goes into these productions!

12:00pm Fuddrucker's salad, thank you very much!

1:00pm Back to rehearsal. Dancing, walking. smiling, need I say more?

Miss, Teen and Ms. Virginia in Las Vegas
5:30pm Free night!! Miss Virginia Ashley Smith and I rest a while, then join Miss Teen Virginia Ashley Greenfield to hit the big town of Las Vegas. We get several cheers for "Virginia!" as we walk past casinos and theatres on Las Vegas Boulevard. We take some time for photos with our favorite Vegas show girls. Our stops also include Caesar's Palace and the fountains outside the Bellagio.

8:30pm Dinner at Bill's Casino on the Strip. I give it a 4.5 out of 10. Sorry, Bill. 

9:30pm Time to head home sweet home to the Orleans. When we get there, the band is rockin in the lobby, so we stop and dance a bit to "Sweet Home Alabama!"

Off to bed ... tomorrow we meet a famous actress from one of my favorite childhood films, and you'll get the inside scoop on Miss United States's favorite ringtone and odd sleeping habits. Nothing is off the record here! Until then....

CHEERS! ~ Laura
