Riding the Coat Tails

When my sister won Miss Alabama USA, I didn't really know what all was in store. We were so focused on her winning the state pageant that we really didn't think ahead to what that would mean--MISS USA! Furthermore, as Miss Alabama she gets to do many appearances throughout the year. It has only been about  6 weeks since she won and that girl has been a busy bee! Mom and I have been trying to help her as much as possible. Here are just a few of the fun things she has gotten to do these past few weeks!
