Charys!

Hahaha... so I was scanning headlines and they had pictures from the Miss America Pageant.

The more I look at this picture, the more I'm convinced that they're cardboard type props and I so need to get you one!

Biggrin

I thought that's what they meant too. Of course, Ms. Charys is so skinny, she could be one of the girls up there.

ok, don't laugh!! You're not going to believe this, but it took 3 different phone calls and I actually got the name of the exact person in charge of that. I'm supposed to call her Wednesday! :eek: I'm not kidding. He said that she dealt with the props, etc. and may be able to give them to me, or know where to find them. :eek::eek::eek: hehe, it's all your fault if you end up with 2 HUGE chandeliers in your house. (I'm keeping one for myself ok? lol)

Ha! I guess I should have been more clear for everyone else. I thought Charys' chandelier obsession was universally known. I did mean the chandeliers. They look EXACTLY like a giant version of the one she uses all the time.

If I had a girl, I would paint it pink and sparkly and hang it above her bed on the wall.

LOL, I'm not kidding. First I call Miss America. (found the number on the Miss America website) Found out real quick that wasn't what was on last night. Wink It was Miss USA. So called USA, then they directed me to Miss Universe offices (who was in charge of the pageant last night). Then I got the guy in charge of the public relations office. He gave me the number and name of the lady in charge of the props last night. I specifically told him I wanted the chandeliers and he laughed and said that I might just get them!!! :eek: I thought he was going to think I was crazy, but he was so nice and told me to call and Esther ____ on Wednesday when she gets back from Vegas!!!! So you bet I'll be calling! And I will ask if there is more. I'm sure we'd have to pay the shipping, but I'll see what that would be.

Whoops.... Miss America, Miss USA, how am I to keep them straight... I don't even get network television! LOL

(Seriously though- there's a difference? Wow... it's been too many years since I watched a pageant. Yes I used to watch them. They used to be on on Saturday nights and mom would let my brother and I sleep on the pull out couch so we could stay up and watch it. Yes I grew up without cable then too. LOL)

This story just gets better and better Charys!

This is hilarious and I could totally see one on Tia's DD wall or above a crib in a little girls room. Too funny.

On a side note, Miss America is shown on TLC and Miss USA is on network TV and is basically paid for by Donald Trump the winner actually lives in Trump towers during her reign...I'm sure that was more info than anyone ever wanted to know. I'm really into pageants...never been in one though.

Oh my word! This is too funny!

I also thought that you were originally talking about a cardboard girl, IMO they look cardboard too;)

Can't wait to see if you get them!
