Here are some pictures from Kristie's fashion show with designer Michael Todd. Michael was a judge at this years pageant and presented Kristie with her with a $500 gift certificate. In addition to the $500 gift certificate he gave Kristie he also gave the Top 5 a $250 gift certificate. Kristie tried on and modeled several of Michael's fabulous designs. http://www.michael-todd.net/
Notes from Beverly:
The Annual Chili Feed in Meridian 2011 was hosted by the Firefighters Pipe & Drums unit. This events' proceeds support burned victims and families. http://www.meridiancity.org/fire.aspx?id=2605
I was asked to be one of the judges where there were several participating commercial, non-commercial and local fire departments that brought their famous chili. Each hoped to take away a giant chili award and of course bragging rights home with them. Some of the
awards were peoples choice, best in show, costume/booth setup . Hmmm ..sounds somewhat like a pageant to me, but along with those were of course tasting the chili, therefore award for best chili. WOW! Now I thought my chili was the best. We have some of the best chili made right here in Idaho! The community came out in hundreds in support of a wonderful cause with plenty of entertainment and delicious food!
Pictured tasting the chili (judging on taste, thickness, spice, color, aftertaste, etc)

Michael Todd Smith ~ Fashion Designer tells the ladies he is giving all of them $250 in clothing. Here is their reaction (priceless).....
Michael was a judge for the 2011 pageant and loved all of the ladies so much he wanted them all to wear his designs. THANK YOU MICHAEL!
