Mrs. Idaho America and Extreme Home Makeover

I had the most amazing experience being a part of the Extreme Makeover Home Edition and truly making a difference in the lives of fellow Idahoans. When I first arrived on location, I was in awe of the energy and love that was felt from all the volunteers and crew. It was exciting to get a tour of the house and see all the amazing details that were put into everything. I also meet Ty!!! He made an effort to talk to me despite his CRAZY recording schedule. He even signed the back of my Mrs. Idaho banner! I was a little star struck if you can image!!! He’s as good looking in person as he is on TV Wink, Wink!

It was exciting to get my hands dirty and help out with whatever I could for this amazing family in need! I felt official in my white hard hat and Bright Blue T shirt!!

I also had the opportunity to meet the on lookers and introduce myself and talk more about the amazing organization of Mrs. Idaho America. I was also lucky enough to get a behind the scenes tour of all the “TOP SECRET” projects! There, I was able to meet a few more stars of the show like Paul DiMeo, Ed Sanders, and Jillian Harris.

This experience has forever made an impression on my heart! I feel blessed to have been a part of something so unique and truly life changing!

Lindsay Campbell ~ Mrs. Boise 2011

I had the chance to go and celebrate with the Boise Rescue Mission and their City Lights, which is the women's and childrens shelter, 10 year anniversary! What an amazing, memorable evening! On October 2, there was a huge celebration including previous first lady of Idaho Patricia Kempthorne as the key note speaker, dinner, meeting the mothers and children the City Lights have helped and many touching moments through the evening. I was impressed with how many women have actually completed the program and moved on from the Mission, to raise their families in a healthy, happy home now! Picture here is Jason Billister and Rev. Roscoe from the Boise Rescue Mission and two of the lovely employees. The City Lights program helps those who need the help and are willing to consider changing their lives that will enable them to grow to be amazing mothers and give back to the community. What an amazing evening!!!

Mrs. Idaho America ~ Fall Pageant Workshop

Here are some pictures from our fun Fall Pageant Workshop we just had last Saturday! There is still time to enter the 2011 Mrs. Idaho America Pageant. The deadline is January 1st. If you would like more information visit our website at

picture #1:

I was invited to be a guest at the Kiwanis club luncheon with a good friend, Mark Bennett. What a fun group of leaders our city has! They are a hoot! The best part is that they are serving our children in our community, which is actually Kiwanis's mission: "To Serve Children of the World". The members play a significant role in many service events such as those coming up very soon; "Rake up Meridian" , "Guys Read" and the "Hope Tree". I am excited to work with them as a representative of the City of Meridian

Have a great Thursday!

The first photo is at "Run 4 Heaven's Gate" 4 1/2 marathons in 4 weeks through Calvary chapel ministries. They raise money to sponsor children from India from the orphanages.

My Son Zach and I at the City of Trees 1/2 and full Marathon. I awarded all 800 + runners with their medals as they crossed the finish line!
What a fun day!

Enjoying representing the Great City of Meridian.
