For #missamericaappreciationday I am honored to focus on this beautiful lady, Miss North Dakota. We actually started to get to know each other tonight, beginning with these photos we took during dinner. Within the first 10 minutes of talking to her about future goals and life in general, I realized I had found myself a true friend. I can't wait to create more memories as we continue you this amazing journey together at Miss America!! 😊 #MissAmerica #MissAmericaND #MissAmericaWI #Friends πŸ’—

Poised and polished is what fans will see when the ladies of Miss America 2015 hit the stage on Sunday September 13 at the pageant in Atlantic City, New Jersey, but behind-the-scenes it is a whole different story!

Preparations for the competition begin weeks before the grand night and the ladies have been jetting around the country for appearances from a stint on "Good Morning America" to a parade in Atlantic City (the official home of Miss America!) to meeting up with Benjamin Franklin at The Liberty Bell in Philadelphia. Naturally, the stunning women have been documenting their journey to the crown with photos -- and they might surprise you!

In the snaps, the gals are chowing down on ice cream sundaes and pasta dinners, goofing around on golf carts, having major games of mini-golf, and giving each other piggyback rides. In a word, it's the real-life version of "Miss Congeniality.

Check out all the hilarious photos above.
