I am HORRIBLE at keeping secrets. Horrible. Horrible. Horrible. So when Weight Watchers invited me to Los Angeles to the Lose for Good kick off event under the stipulation that I had to keep it secret until this week, I freaked. I mean seriously. How am I, the girl who gave her boyfriend (now the husband) his one year Anniversary gift a week early because she was so excited or the mom who wants to give her son each and every one of his Christmas presents as she buys them, suppose to keep wraps on an amazing trip to L.A. Where she was going to meet Jenny McCarthy, hang out with FaintStarLite AND have dinner with the CEO of Weight Watchers a secret?
Yeah… needless to say I slipped up a few times. :)
Thankfully now I have the green light to talk about anything from the trip. So let me let Jenny do what she does and fill you in on the campaign…
As for the actual trip. I had a BLAST. It was rough now that I have a job (red eye flight and straight into the office) but I had some RR time there and met the most amazing bloggers.
- Arianne from To Think is to Create (who I finally got to meet, our paths have crossed a few times, she’s awesome!)
- Melissa from Whooo’s That Girl? (who takes amazing photos!)
- Nancy from Mommies With Style (totally sweet!)
- Rebecca from Does this Blog Make us Look Fat? (hysterically funny!)
- Ester, FaintStarLite herself. (Total geek girl.. I wish we were sisters. ;)
Here we all are with Ms. Jenny
A few other pictures from the event…
Here is Rebecca (@Laughitoff) and I
Ester and I with Arianne sneaking in (did not notice until just now.:)
And Dave, the CEO of Weight Watchers who might just be the tallest man alive. Note: I’m 5′ 9”
My favorite part of the whole trip was watching the kids plant in the garden and learn about fresh foods. Something I’m super passionate about. You know, the whole GreenLiteBites thing and all. :)
