Wohoo! I got to meet the reigning Miss America, Caressa Cameron, and Katie Stam, Miss America 2009, last night. As well as see former Miss America, Phyllis George, again! I had the pleasure to meet her this past January in Las Vegas.

Miss Ohio, Becky Minger, came to Columbus for the event at Value City Furniture, and Sarah Hider, the new Miss Central Ohio, was in attendance; too! Kathy Wise, ED of the MCO program, and Sue Swinehart, MOSP board member and MO traveling companion, were along for the ride and were fabulous at capturing all of the moments that happened throughout the evening.

Whew, I'm tired this morning but it was worth every second. Why wouldn't I go see Miss America while she's in Columbus, right? I remember MY Miss America (Kirsten Haglund) being in Grove City of all places back in 2008, and I got to see her while she visited a local store for a Sweet D Onion promotion that went hand-in-hand with her platform of eating disorder awareness and healthy eating.

I know I've said it before but, I love this stuff! Here are some photos from the fun last night:I'm so excited for Vegas!!
What a weekend! This week is off to a good start, too.

I was Miss Ohio's "chaperone" (Ha!) on Friday night at the 2010 OSU Homecoming parade. We had a lot of fun. Becky was all ready in Columbus from a school appearance she had earlier in the day. We met up and walked to the Horseshoe where she got pictures with other parade participants, OSU legendary look alike's, Buckeye fans, Archie Griffin and Miss Ohio's Outstanding Teen. Here are some photos:

I love you, Archie Griffin!

O.H.I.O. with Becky, Lorrie, & Cecili!

Saturday I went to the Miss Central Ohio pageant in Newark with my amazing date, my mother. I haven't attended a prelim competition in at least a year, even though I was a part of the Miss Mansfield show last year. I love being able to just enjoy the evening from the audience.

Katie Camp, outgoing MCO, and Becky did a fantastic job hosting Saturday night. Congratulations to Sarah Hider, Miss Central Ohio 2011, and a congrats to all the other young women. To all the ladies who did compete, feel free to email me at missoh07@yahoo.com if you would like feedback from your performances.

I had another photo shoot with my sister-in-law and her fiance yesterday. Long story short, I shot a wedding last Saturday and used a memory card from the wedding for my sis-in-laws shoot. Well, not all the pictures were taken off the card and I wasn't sure if I should delete them in case they hadn't been uploaded. SO...we only took about 20 or 30 pictures then, and I like to get well over 100 photos to choose and edit from. We had fun and it was another beautiful day outside. Yep, I took these pics:
I'm planning to see Miss America 2010, Caressa Cameron, tonight in Columbus. She will be at a Value City store along with Phyllis George, whom I had the pleasure of meeting back in January. You can bet I'll be posting pics. ;)

Today is also mine and Steve's 1.5 year wedding anniversary! Loving every minute of it...Have a blessed week.
I'm sore, achy, cold, and tired after a LONG week and weekend. But that's ok...I've had a fantastic past couple of days.

I was in a shoot for JoAnn Fabrics. I was a part of the Ohio Schools of Character Summit. I was able to snap some photos at a beautiful wedding in Troy. I got to cheer on my brother-in-law who ran in the Columbus Marathon. Rounding it all out with a mini engagement session with my sister-in-law! It's catching up with me now.

Obviously, I have a ton of pictures to share. But I want to high light my brother-in-laws efforts as he kicked his time from the LA Marathon, which was approx. 5 hrs. 45 mins. He finished 5 hours 30 mins yesterday! It's a lot colder in Ohio than in Cali and he was jet lagged from the flight, too. Below, Nick (bro-in-law) is pictured with his best friend Tom, who also ran!You guys really did a great job and are an inspiration. I wanted to run the half with my friend Stephanie, but maybe next year!

Lots going on in "pageant land." MOSP has not yet disclosed the 2011 location of the pageant. A new titleholder was crowned this past weekend. This weekend is another local in Newark (Central Ohio) as well as the Miss Ohio USA pageant. AND...the Buckeyes homecoming is Saturday, against Purdue.

I was able to secure a spot in the 2010 Ohio State Homecoming Parade for Miss Ohio, Becky Minger, and Miss Ohio's Outstanding Teen, Cecili Weber! I'll be sure to share photos asap.

I'd like to share a couple photos I captured this weekend of the adorable baby Kinley:

Camp Sharp is all ready in planning stages for next years one day summer camp for girls!

We're meeting today with the COO of the Ohio Capital Corporation for Housing and Community Properties of Ohio to discuss collaboration, partnership, sponsorship, and ideas. We are extremely blessed to have this opportunity to connect with OCCH and continue to brainstorm and network.

OCCH and CPO are merged organizations that help restore homes/buildings in low income neighborhoods and they actually hold a summer camp for those children that are affected by housing. I can't tell you how good we are feeling about our initial meeting and I can't wait to share more with you on how everything goes.

Another exciting item with CS...we're on Facebook and Twitter! Watch out. ;)

This weekend has turned out to be another relaxing one, which I'm so relieved of. I really value theses two days that God gives me to rejuvenate and reflect. Next week is a whole other story. I'm looking forward to being a part of the annual Ohio Schools of Character Summit, which is presented by the Better Business Bureau of Central Ohio and Ohio Partners in Character Education; where I serve on the board.

**Congratulations to one of my best friends, Cassi, and her hubby on the birth of their first daughter this week!**

Cassi and I have been friends since 8th grade and she was the matron of honor in my wedding last year. They made one beautiful newborn baby girl, Kinley!

Enjoy the beautiful weather this weekend and Go Buckeyes!!
My favorite photo of the day:I had some girl time this morning with my sister & mom. We met in "old downtown" and had a mini photo shoot followed by brunch at Lilly's Kitchen. I had such a good time and the Buckeyes win which preceded it was perfect, too.

Faye was my model this morning. Not only does she aspire to become a famous country singer but I'm attempting to expand my portfolio, as well. It's a win-win. If I get a chance, I'll share some more pics from our time together. Otherwise, click on "Roberta's Photography" to check out some of my (so-so) skills. ;)
