Attention Cinderella Friends going to Internationals: If you are looking for someone to do hair and make-up for Internationals in Texas, I have a friend that has 4 spots open. She is a former Cinderella girl and was the NC Cinderella Teen on court with Mattie Lee when she was the Tot. She has competed at Internationals in the past and has years of experience. Please message me if you would like more info and I will put you in contact with Brittany Crews DiCello.
The Miss America Organization has afforded me the opportunity to meet many great friends and to love and support some incredible young women! I am honored to call Allison Farris one of my “other daughters”.
I want to help Allison make it to the Miss America stage this year. Raising funds for the Children’s Miracle Network is one of the causes that is near and dear to the Miss America organization. Any monetary contribution small or large will help her reach her goal.
Thank you for helping our girl as she prepares to compete for Miss District of Columbia.

I supported Mallory Hagan long before I even knew her. When she was Miss New York and preparing to compete for Miss America 2013, our dance studio owner asked us to vote for her and support her because she was friends with Mallory’s Mom, a dance studio owner in Alabama. We voted, shared and supported Mallory and was thrilled when she was crowned Miss America! Ever since then…I have been impressed with her because she is REAL and she keeps it real! I love that in a person! I agree with her that is time to hold the ones accountable that have created a “culture of abuse and harassment” (quoting Mallory) within the Miss America Organization. It is not only happening from the National leadership, it happens from other positions and volunteers as well. I truly hope others that are guilty of this behavior are taking notes and learning from this current situation! God does not like ugly, mean and evil! In the wake of all of this crisis with the Miss America Program, the organization stands to lose many valuable volunteers, contestants and sponsors. We are all human, we all make mistakes… I try to live by this…..”never judge a person on their mistakes, judge them on how they fix them”. I am praying everyone involved does the right thing!
We are not promised tomorrow here on Earth, so live each day as if it may be your last. I experienced a very harsh reminder about this last night when I learned of the passing of a young lady that I had the honor of knowing and working with through the Miss America Program. Ashley Nicole House Owen….I remember how young and beautiful she was the night she became our committee’s third Miss Mount Holly in 1999. She was like a sponge and absorbed everything that was said to her that year. She listened, she changed whatever was asked of her and she grew up right in front of our eyes. She went on to become Miss North Carolina in 2001 and represented our state with grace and confidence. My heart is broken for her parents, her husband and their children. I am so sad for the loss of such a beautiful soul. Please especially pray for her family today and the days ahead.
It’s a Christmas miracle! We have wrapped presents under our tree before Christmas Eve! I never wrap gifts until December 24th… but I already have everything wrapped that has been purchased this year! I have more shopping to do, but I am way ahead of MY game! I always wrap the gifts in code! Looks like, one Lee kid has been naughty, one has been real nice and one did not give Santa a very good list for gifts! Can you guess who?
Pretty much sums me up! Some people may need to take note of the type of dog that I am when I am angry….just sayin’! You have impressive eyes like a dog that reveal your loyalty but also your outstanding strength and power! When you get angry, you are one to not mess with! Your loved ones mean the world to you. You don’t settle down until you’ve taken it up with their enemies. You’re like an Alaskan malamute that loves their pack above all and would risk everything for them.
Today was a special day, the day that we celebrated another year with an awesome man! He is the one with the wittiest comments and a heart of gold! He is the best Daddy that I know and he is the ONLY person that loves me not only at my best …but at my worst too. I am so thankful that I get to call him my husband, the father of my children, the love of my life and the hottest man alive!! Happy Birthday Bow Lee…we love you!
Story of my life! We all know how quickly my car runs out of gas. The last time I drove my car (Friday night), I had a full tank of gas! Two other licensed drivers in my house have been driving my car this weekend, but I am not mentioning any names!!! I get in my car a few minutes ago and it is past empty. I am thinking….gosh, please let me make it to the BP right up the street! Well, GUESS WHAT….you guessed it – I ran out of gas on my way to the gas station! ⛽️ I have seriously lost count of the number of times I have been stranded with no gas! But, this time was not my fault so I was rescued with no lecturing from one of the guilty parties! I love my life and my family!
