Mrs Colorado 2013

Hello!  I'm Mina Muirhead.  Last Saturday my dream came true when I was crowned Mrs. Colorado 2013.

When I was a little girl growing up in Oklahoma one of my good friends, mother was Mrs. Oklahoma.  I remember thinking how amazing she was and how I wanted to do that too.  But I never entered pageantry as a kid or teenager.  Growing up in a small town, my summers were filled with helping my granddad on the ranch, swimming pools and softball.  But when I came into my 30's and my kids were in school full time I remembered that long ago dream.  I googled "Mrs. Colorado" and found this web site. Instant excitement filled me!  I told my husband that I wanted to enter the pageant.  I'm grateful that he was immediately on board.  Little did we both know at that time it would be a 4 year journey of growth and discovery of not only who I am, but who we are as a couple.

Last week I immediately jumped into my role by visiting my daughter's 3rd grade classroom.  We talked about how fun it is competing in something that you enjoy, whether that's a sport, dance, or art.  The kids were great! Even the boys enjoyed trying on my crown.

I am thrilled about the possibilities of what this year will bring.  I'm starting to prepare for Mrs. America which will be at the beautiful Loews Ventana Canyon Resort and Spa in Tucson, Arizona on August 28th.    Stayed tuned for more information!
