Miss Tattoo


I'm finally able to do an update from Sarahs ever so trusty pc, my mac is not agreeing with the internet in our hotel room, so I'm glad I can use this as a back up.
Dallas is amazing,  I've only been to Texas once before, on a spur of the moment adventure, hop on a place the next day, buy a car, lay on the beach at South Padre Island, and drive back to KC-kinda deal. But Dallas is really nice, the food is amazing, yeah you'd be surprised to know that I've had the most amazing vegan pizza ever across the street from the convention. We went to the hippest of hipster vegan restaurants the night we arrived for some delicious nachos and mac and cheese. And ate some very, very good falafels at Cosmic Cafe. You can definitely be vegan, and not starve in Dallas!

Friday was casual wear, I wore black skinnies, a white tank top and heels, we introduced ourselves, and it was slightly nerve wracking being on stage for the first time. Today we had hair and makeup professionally done, so fun being pampered! We had photoshoots, evening wear on stage, along with interview questions, then followed by swim suit, and some tattoo related questions.
I'm number one through the whole competition, meaning I go on stage first. I'm actually pretty happy about that, less time to stand around and be nervous, plus I get to walk around with a big "1" on my sash. Hah!
I also entered a non pageant related contest today, for my mom and dad tattoos, by Shaun, in the category for Traditional tattoos, and I won 2nd place! So happy, and I can't wait to hand the trophy over to Shaun!

We've been meeting so many nice people, and I am surprised how many people Sarah and have met here that know people we both know, or work/have worked with people I have worked with also. Small world!

I've been really busy, It's really been non stop all day, everyday, so I haven't really had a chance to take photos other than today, so I have a few to share. Tomorrow we get all the professional photos they took through out the pageant, so I will share those for sure!

Talent tomorrow, followed by pin up, photo shoots, and then finally the crowning at 7pm. So excited!
Per usual, I should be sleeping, but I'm not, I would love to, but I already have a hard time falling asleep at home, so there is really no chance of me falling asleep in a hotel on a bed, with a pillow that is too fluffy. Yeah, I like them flat like pancakes.

Apparently a tornado hit our room while we were out, 28 shoes between the two of us for 4 days, I'm not surprised.

I wish I could say I was blogging while getting my hair done, but sadly I am just showing the stylist a picture I had already saved on my computer, on how I wanted to my hair done.

Gil Monte has the cutest, grumpiest little chihuahua, Jaws. He bites.

Well it's already 1:52am, and Sarah has been passed out for hours, I guess I better try to get some beauty sleep. We have a long day ahead of us, I am also getting tattooed at the end of the day, so excited! I'll share more about that, and more pictures either Sunday or Monday.

I'm off to dream about lego hearts, pizza fields and city lights.

I hope you are having an amazing weekend!
Night night <3

Haha That's awesome that you ran into Gill. I used to pierce at Tattoomania in Beaumont, TX and I have house/doggy sat for Gill and all FOUR of his chihuahuas. I'm happy to say that Jaws has never bitten me, but I've seen it happen many times.

I was at the Musink Festival on Sunday. I tried to find you to say hello and to tell you that I follow your blog, but I couldn't. Maybe I saw you and didn't realize since I didn't have my glasses on. I hope you had a great rest of your time in Dallas. It's nice to hear great things from a visitor.
