Reception for the Naval Officers
It's Rose Festival Week! Last night I was honored to attend the Wardroom Reception, which is an event to welcome the Naval Officers and Admirals into the Rose City. It was held at Venue 126 in Portland. It was such a fun appearance and I had a good time getting to know the Navy Brass. I haven't seen so many white uniforms in one place since the movie Top Gun!
Wife, Mother, Sister, Daughter, just to name a few of the many hats I wear. My husband and I have been married for almost 9 years. We have two of the sweetest, smartest, most articulate, thoughtful and well mannered children ever put on the planet (can you tell I am a proud Mother?!). My daughter is 6 and my son is 4. I quit my job in the Software industry 7 years ago to become a stay at home mom. Now my days consist of ballet, t-ball and swim lessons among many other things. I am truly blessed to have the resources and support from my husband to be able to stay home and raise our kids. It is very challenging staying home but also so rewarding. I wouldn't trade it for the world! I have found that true happiness in life comes from serving others. I volunteer at my church and with several organizations in my free time. I try to appreciate all life has to offer and even though it can be scary, I thoroughly enjoy stepping out of my comfort zone to try something new. I believe you can do anything you set your mind to and I try and encourage others to reach for their dreams!
The Mrs. Oregon America Pageant will be held on November 7th, 2010 at the Broadway Rose Theatre in Tigard, Oregon. It is the preliminary to the Mrs. America and Mrs. World competitions. The Mrs. America pageant began in 1938. Back in 1964, participants were graded on: cooking, sewing, ironing (mens shirts!), party preparation and other homemaking abilities, family psychology, grooming, poise, personality and general attractiveness. These days the competition has changed drastically, focusing its attention on well rounded wives and/or mothers who donate their time through community service while balancing a career and/or family. These women must be poised and articulate. For more information about the Mrs. America Pageant please visit their website at: http://www.mrsamerica.com/
