Last night I was invited to the US Open VIP Party so I asked my friend Sharon to join me.

We headed to Terminal 5 where they hold a lot of concerts. When we walked in we immediately commented on how much we loved the chandeliers. Adam, please buy me one..

Once we entered the concert room we were greeted with bags of trail mix, mini soft pretzel stands and butler served hors d’oeuvres. We made our way to the bar and I ordered a stoli vanilla w/ soda water.

I think I’m going to switch over to this drink because I’m trying to cut out soda and my regular is Captain and Diet which is VERY sugary!

After a couple ofΒ shenanigans

we headed to the dance floor where the concert was going on. In the middle of talking a guy came up and said “do you want to go upstairs” I replied “sure” (there were 3 levels and each level had different VIP perks). While we waited in what I thought was a small line for an elevator the security guard said “you ready to do this?” We were all like “yeah, duh??” then he said “Ok you have to dance the entire time…” Um, excuse me? At this point I asked exactly what he meant and he said he asked if we wanted to dance on stage not go upstairs. Oh, greaaat. What had we gotten ourselves into?

I tried to back out but Sharon assured me it would be fun. It was…a lot of fun.



We danced for a good 45 minutes and were absolutely exhausted. We headed home after our big debut πŸ˜‰ and I was ready for some sleep!

I wanted to get up early to do a workout but I did Jillian’s 30 day shred yesterday and was SO sore. Goodness, I am out of shape!!

Instead I had breakfast and went into work a little early.

Fiber One 80 calorieΒ honey squares w/ 1/2 of a homemade granola barΒ and some fresh strawberries.

Mila’s homemade granola bars are becoming one of my favorites so I suggest you check them out!

We’re busy prepping for the hurricane :/ and watching the Redskins whoop up on the Ravens! We’re on the ground level of our apartment and praying it doesn’t flood. Hoboken is in a mandatory remove your vehicles from the area and possibly a mandatory evacuation come tomorrow. Cross your fingers for us!!!

QUESTIONS: Is your area going to be affected by Ms. Irene?? When was the last time you felt like VIP?

PS: Fashion update – Dress is from Forever 21 and it costs 12 dollars. SCORE.

  17. I’m in NC and we are definitely being affected my Irene. The last time I felt like a VIP was this week, in NYC when I was on the Executive Level of the Hilton. WOW. 44th floor!

  18. Sorry, but I’m a Ravens fan! I had a similar thing happen to me in Cancun–I was asked to go to a VIP area (which was awesome) so I figured the same thing would happen the next time someone asked me. Turns the second time around I wasn’t so lucky and ended up on a stage!

    I hope you stay safe!! Irene is coming our way….

  19. What an amazing memory! Love the dress…and dancing seriously could make Lance Armstrong sore! πŸ™‚
