Hey guys!! I’ve missed you!!! It feels like I’ve been gone forever!
I feel like I’m so behind in blogs (350+ in my google reader!), Twitter, and Facebook. Has anything exciting been happening??
My weekend was a life-changing experience.
I never knew how rewarding coaching could be. What a weekend. In order to avoid boring you to death with a super long post I figured I’d break it up a bit.
Friday was great. After checking in and sight seeing (i.e. shopping!), the night started with dinner at a mexican restaurant in Mandalay Bay. I’ve never been a fan of guacamole, but the gauc this place had was amazing. I think it changed my opinion guacamole forever! Add that to the 2 pomegranate margaritas I had, and I was one happy girl when we left the restaurant.
Nikki and I thought there was no way we’d be able to stay up and have some drinks, but we were troopers and ended up having a great time!
Which led to this on Saturday morning:
But I still managed to get up for our 7:00 Team Challenge easy run. Every chapter from across the country met Saturday morning for an easy 2 mile (or less) run or walk to just get our legs moving. I couldn’t miss it. And then after the run I had to be at a Coach/Staff meeting at 9:00 for an hour or so. I had a busy morning because then my Team was meeting at 11:00 to head over to the expo together!
One of the highlights of my weekend happened when we were walking out to the shuttle to take us to the expo. There was another bus when we walked out of the hotel and WuTang was standing right there!!!! My sis noticed them first (and we knew they had been performing at the hotel) so I couldn’t let the opportunity pass without asking for a picture.
Ummmmm…….hello, Method Man!!!! OMG, how freakin cool. The guy taking our picture loved my peace sign and then Method Man and I fist bumped (and exploded!!) before I had to get on the shuttle to go to the expo. So random, and so totally fun!
The expo was good, but just so crowded. They did provide some fun photo opportunities, though:
We didn’t stay at the expo too long, though. It was seriously insanely crowded. I felt like there was so much more to see and do but the crowds were just overwhelming.
Saturday night was the Team Challenge pasta party, which was so inspirational. I won’t go into all the details, but what an event! It was so well organized and with almost 1,800 people there was hardly a wait for the buffet lines or any confusion as to which table you were sitting at. It was quite impressive.
Typical Heather style:
Before we left, my sis, Nikki, and I had to stop and get a picture with Ali and Roberto from the Bachelorette:
My excitement from meeting Method Man equaled my sister’s excitement from meeting Ali and Roberto! She’s a total Bachelorette junky! Ali’s sister and brother both suffer from colitis so this event is near and dear to her.
Being celebrity stalkers really takes a lot out of you. We were glad to get back to our room that night.
We set out our gear:
Sunday was about to be one of the longest days of my life. I had no idea.
Would you have gone up and asked for a picture with a celebrity like I did? Or just have taken the picture from afar??
