Vanbros girls at the pool party.
What do you know, another early morning! We started the day with orientation from Paula Shugart, President of the Miss Universe Organization.
Ashley, Miss MO, and I catching some rays.
After that we headed to Caesars Palace for lunch and a pool party. This didn't seem like work at all! we laid out, waded in the pool, ate, and socialized.
Brittney Bell, Miss AZ and I.
Then it was back to Planet Hollywood to get ready for Sushi Samba and Karaoke. This was my favorite event! Sushi is one of my all time favorite foods, and to my surprise I became addicted to karaoke!
We sang just about every fun girly song there is! Spice Girls, Pussycat Dolls, and Britney Spears had nothing on us! We danced to the cha cha slide and had a blast! I was sweaty by the end of the night from all of the dancing and singing.
Showing our Same Sky Bracelets in the picture above. The power behind these bracelets is amazing. Same Sky employs HIV positive women in Rwanda who survived the 1994 Genocide. These unique bracelets are made of handblown glass beads crocheted by these women.
Each bracelet carries the signature of the woman who made it. By buying a Same Sky bracelet, you become part of a movement of women empowering women and the men who support them under the same sky. This is a fair-trade company of women empowerment. All proceeds go directly to these women.
This lifts poverty and gives them the tools to become entrepreneurs and lead self sustaining lives. These are gorgeous bracelets, and I encourage you to buy one. They make great gifts and more importantly are for a great cause! Click on the Same Sky link above to check them out!
Singing and dancing away!
This was the best way to get close with all of the girls. We were able to let loose and have fun with each other in a different setting. After the event, we were back on the buses, back to the hotel, and back to bed!
Tired from a long night of fun!
