Come cheer on Marla Sarris, possibly the next Mrs America

Hey Paleo Chicago peeps!

I will be competing in the state preliminary competition for Mrs America on May 18th and there is a ticket with your name on it, if you'd like to come be a part of my cheering section! :) Additionally, if you're interested in becoming a sponsor, I'm currently offering some Paleo products and services you may be interested in checking out.

My goal is to win (obviously :) ) and if that happens I will have a much larger platform to help spread more information about the Paleo lifestyle, as I prepare to compete as Mrs Illinois in the Mrs America pageant, this coming August. But one hurdle first. :) The state preliminary pageant will include a swim suit, evening gown and costume portion. The interview portion takes place earlier in the day, not on stage in front of the audience.

Since I was a little girl I've wanted to get back into the pageant scene and after losing 60 pounds from going Paleo, I finally made the commitment in January that I was going to jump back in and go after this lifelong goal. You can read more about my background and find information about becoming a sponsor on Paleo Porn (my recipe blog), at

And if you're interested in being a part of my cheering section in the audience I can order your tickets now (payment required up front) or you can take a chance and purchase your tickets at the door. Currently tickets are $35/person and on the day of they will be $40/person.

The doors will close at 6:15pm sharp for the competition to start. There will be an intermission and doors will again close at 8pm for the final competition.

If you have any questions, feel free to message me! :)

    Wish I could make it, but my daughter's birthday is that weekend. Good luck, and say hello to my alma mater for me!
