Hello from Tucson! I arrived safe & sound and am having a blast. After I landed in Tucson, I hopped into a Mrs. America van with 5 other contestants and headed to the beautiful resort. Since I came to watch Liz last year I kind of knew where things were at the hotel which was a huge plus! I met my roommate (Mrs. Ohio) and we get along so well together. She is a ton of fun to be around. We had a wonderful dinner last night with everyone dressed in long gowns or cocktail dresses. It was fun to finally meet all of these beautiful ladies! Diane Tucker, Mrs. World, was there and she is great.This morning we were in the lobby at 7:00 am dressed in our matching t-shirts from "Ventana on the Greens" We all walked about a mile (so hot!!! even that early in the morning) to the Greens and once there we split into smaller groups. My group got to see and touch animals, critters and reptiles from the desert. Yes, I participated and even held a python! After that we had a great breakfast around the pool and then headed back to the resort. We had most of the day to ourselves except during our production interview. These interviews will be used during the telecast.I'm off to dinner and then our first rehearsal with "Fritt & Fratt!" Enjoy the pictures!
