First and foremost I just want to say… I love you guys. Really, I do. You make me want to be a better person. You motivate me to keep giving my 1000%. Your support means more to me than I could ever express.
I’ve been feeling so incredibly loved. Thank you, from the bottom of my heart.
You know, I canNOT believe that we’re leaving for Las Vegas TOMORROW! Feeling excited, anxious and a wee bit overwhelmed. That’s expected I suppose.
As for my lack of updates this week… it’s been ten times busier than I ever expected it to be. I’ve gotten more accomplished in the last week or so than I have in months. So much going on… and I can’t WAIT to share it all with you!
Oh, and the “dress, me” contest…
I can’t TELL you how much you guys helped. Not only did you send incredible suggestions… but the tips that you sent?! I’m so thankful for each and every single one of you. I know I say this all of the time… but… I really do have THE best blog readers around. Thank you for caring about me. Really. Thank you from the bottom of my heart.Bottom line, I’ve never had more fun shopping/felt better about myself than I did that day… ALLLL thanks to you! I went out armed with so many more ideas and concepts and for the first time in a VEERRRRRYYY long time… I went outfit shopping and actually ENJOYED it. You guys really have no idea… thank you so so so SO much! Wow, how many times can I say thank you in one post?! sheesh!
I’ll share more about my shopping experience after we get back from Vegas… because I have LOTS to share! So many of you out there emailed and said that they could have written every word that I did that day and struggle in the same departments as I do. SO… I’ll share much of what I discovered!
All of that being said, It’s hard to pick a winner… I didn’t pick out one particular outfit… but had all of my favorite styble boards with me… and kept all of your tips and suggestions in mind while shopping. I wish that I could afford to give every single one of you a gift card… because really, EVERY SINGLE ONE OF YOU HELPED!!!!!
There were a few of them that really stood out to me.
So, instead of picking one winner… I picked nine.
Gwyneth Colleen (who sent photos of herself in outfits because we’re body twins… yeah, ABOVE AND BEYOND!)
Okay… as a quick reminder… we are speaking at a platform class the morning, 8am on Monday, February 21st. I know it’s early but, we’ll try our hardest to make it worth your while, interesting and fun… We promise!
If you haven’t already, preboard to come see us speak (or to see my outfit :D). I didn’t practice what I preach and forgot to pre-board many of my favorite speakers and now all of the pre-board tickets are gone.JUST DO IT!
Oh, and if you happen to see us out and about… say hello and throw some high fives. Though, just an FYI… our schedule is a little jam packed… so if we’re running away in the midst of the high five… please don’t take it personally!
I LOVE YOU GUYS!!!!! THANK YOU FOR EVERYTHING!!!!!!!!
See you there!
Your grateful, somewhat frazzled redheaded friend,
