What A Surprise!
The promoter for the show I am guest posing at Nov. 12th, Kevin Noble,
e-mailed me last night. He sent me a copy of what will be printed on the t-shirts given to all the athletes and sponsors at the competition.
I was shocked and extreemly flattered...what an honor;) sister's comment...
"My God!! You 're A t-shirt!" LOL...I knew I could count on entertaining her. LOL!
Michelle you don't know this yet;) but my guest posing idea comes from the fun we had as kids..way back in California..I'll never forget all we laughed about and share!
And the theme for the show...
"Beginnings...the beginning of what is to come?? Maybe a forshadowing..LOL! Kevin, thank you once again for the opportunity to reach so many people and to do what I love...performing and inspiring people's lives...
This was my dream as a perform and inspire as a dancer..well bodybuilding is a bit different but I'm still livin' the dream!
thank you to everyone who has helped this come true...
Mom & Dad, My husband Michael, my sister & Lucas, my brother, my friends, my clients, my webmasters, my children, Jeff Johnson
and Kevin Noble- thanks for taking a chance on me!!!:)
I posted a long journal entrty in my members area for what's been going on in my life these days and my exciting plans in Atlanta for nationals!!!

Just wanted to share the fun news that I will be making the trip to Atlanta for Nationals this year!:) I wasn't sure if I could swing it financially but this years' Team Universe winner, Debbie Patton, and I have been chatting and she extended the offer to let me stay in her room in Atlanta:)
She will be working the Champion Nutrition booth at the show while I'm doing shoots and we will watch the prejudging and evening shows together. We are both from the Chicagoland area so we are going to travel there together as well. It should be a great time!
Debbie- thanks again for the invite!!
I am planning to do at least 3 maybe 4 photo shoots while I'm season, but just a week after guest posing so I shouldn't look too soft and squishy:))
If I do, I know you'll all forgive me..LOL!
I am also planning to hook up with Amanda Dunbar either to train together or for the after parties! I don't get many dancing nights out with the 2 kids anymore so I will live it up while I'm there...Dancing Queen Jen..:) Lots of gallery pics for my members from this trip for sure!

Well, tomorrow is our family day at the pumpkin farm...I can't wait! The kids are just so fun and I feel so alive with all the color around me...I have a colorful personality and my surroundings affect me a you can imagine how the fall makes me feel;)
Michael and I share this connection and it always seems to strengthen our bond this time of the leaves are falling, the air becomes a bit crisp, cheeks a bit more flushed...a lot of camping memories come back:) This is a special time of year for both of the holiday season approaches... I suppose the fact that we both have the most incredible family's makes the holidays that much more magical for us.
On another note:
Amanda, & Mr. Crumbliss, I'm thinking about you in Florida and hoping the hurricane misses you both!
