2017 Senior Spokesmodels | Surprise Deliveries #HTPSeniors

Senior Sessions

Last week was one of my FAVORITE weeks of the entire year!!! If you follow me on social media, you have seen me frequently posting about my senior spokesmodel applications over the last few months. I received over 100 applications from girls all over the state of Virginia and, after weeks of reviewing applications and finalizing the team, 14 incredible girls were chosen to represent HTP for the class of 2017!!! YAY!!!

Little did they know, last week was spent doing some seriously sneaky behind-the-scences work to prepare for Thursday! Each year, after the girls are chosen, I drive door-to-door to hand-deliver a gift box + balloons to each new member of the spokesmodel team!!! It feels just like Christmas except that I’M the one who gets to be Santa!!!! 🙂 They have NO idea that I am coming and I coordinate with their mommas beforehand to arrive when they least expect it-it is SO much fun!!!! So, on Thursday afternoon around 2pm, I set off with Caroline of Posh PR to travel over 250 miles to 14 different homes!!! The reactions of the girls are always PRICELESS and it makes the 7 hours of driving SO worth it!!! 🙂

Each girl received an amazing gift box full of swag from some wonderful sponsors (find them below!!) along with an invitation to next week’s Crowning Ceremony-stay tuned for more on that soon!!!
