Welcome to the Official Blog of Mrs. Minneapolis International 2011

The International Pageant System was created to showcase married women, their coummunity involvement and commitment to marriage and family. Each woman chooses a platform in which they are passionate about to promote throughout their reign. My platform is titled, "The Unseen Enemy-Educating Parents on Internet Safety." My website is www.mrsminneapolis.com

The 2011 Mrs. Minnesota Interneational Pageant will be held on March 12 & 13th in St Cloud, MN. I am very excited to continue my work teaching parents and children about the dangers of the Internet. Please visit http://www.mrsminnesota.com/ for tickets and more info!

On Saturday December 4th, 2010 my girlfriends Angeline Gard, Mary Swenson and Miss Teen Minnesota Jenna O'Rourke made the trip to Fargo, ND to support the International ladies who were competing for their state titles.  This is the second year that we've gone for a girls weekend and there's never a shortage of conversation in the 4 hour drive!!

We were litterally praying that we could make it to a gas station even though we were in the middle of no where. Our gift of gab made us oblivious to the level of our gas tank!! Thank goodness for our Garmin who guided us to a little station which also sells....live bait. We don't see much of that here in the city of Minneapolis. I made Jenna take a picture of me in front of it and the locals looked at us as if we were crazy. We four girls dressed in our cute outfits stood out in this tiny town's gas station. It was our first adventure!

At intermission we found Paula Preston, the official photographer of the pageant, and  made her pose for pictures with us. I can't say enough about Paula. She cracks me up and has a wonderful heart. I always love being around her!!!

After the crowning everyone was invited to Grazie's for more awards and a reception. Carolina Rayes, Miss Minnesota International 2010, and Tina Monosmith, Miss Minnesota 2008, both had the honor to judge the pageant. It's a huge honor for the Minnesota girls to be asked to judge the pageant. Two out of the three queens represented Minnesota at the pageant plus myself as a local title holder. The ND pageant organizers were so grateful that we were able to make the trip to support their system. We were honored to have the great reserved seats!

Maybe one day they will come to St Cloud to see our pageant! We had a great time, didn't we ladies!?
