I arrived back from Qatar and was filled with joy when I learned that I had Saturday and Sunday off. Unfortunately my Saturday didn't last long because as soon as I arrived home from the airport I fell asleep... can you say jet lag? I woke up Sunday feeling ill but felt much better after running 5 miles in Central Park.
I had so much fun with Kamie, my pageant sister, on Monday when we volunteered at God's Love We Deliver. We helped make meals for the sick and their families, which would later be brought to their homes.
I spent the rest of the week helping to raise awareness for Gilda's Club and Breast Cancer Awareness Month through Applebee’s “Dining to Donate” program. I had the opportunity visit Applebee's in both Times Square and Queens, where I waitressed, bused tables, and took photos with customers. I want to thank everyone from St. John Prep High School, fans, Tal Goldhamer and the staff at Ernst & Young, the Miss Universe Organization, and of course, Applebee’s, for giving me this opportunity to raise money for Gilda’s Club. If you haven’t had the chance to watch my fun Applebee’s video on www.missusa.com don’t forget to check it out.
Now I’m off to prepare for tonight’s big Yankees game. I’ll have to dig up my t-shirt and fitted cap.....LET'S GO YANKEEEES!
