I wanted to share some deets and pics with you guys about our fun filled week last week. 🙂

A couple months ago Brittany Madrid from Barre Be Fit asked me if I wanted to pair up with her and Dish to throw a Healthy dinner party. I thought that was an AMAZING way to spread the health and fitness love to people who were interested in getting together. We love meeting new people and sharing our health and fitness tips with others, plus we get to learn a few things along the way too.

So last Thursday we threw our very first Healthy Dish dinner party at Dish Restaurant. We started the menu of with a lean green salad, the main course offered a vegan and a meateater choice, and for the sweet ending was fresh cut strawberries paired with champagne sorbet. It was light, refreshing, and perfect for the occasion.

Due to the wicked weather that night (and we Texans freak out if we hear severe thunderstorm), our turnout wasn’t as big as the RSVP list. But that was ok; we had a great time getting to know the people that came out for this. I met some new faces and ran into old friends. It was a pleasure running into Marqui Williams, she is a distributor for SunWarrior, a vegan protein powder supplement company. I met her at my women’s entrepreneur group. You guys should check her out. She ROCKS!

It was a fun event even though the weather was extremely chili. I don’t know about you but I am already looking forward to spring. I only like cold weather if I am skiing! Not much fun to be cold otherwise.

Then on Saturday, we went to a charity event called the Margarita Ball (a charity event for children). We had a HUGE group of good friends and some new faces ready to get down and dance. The event is held every November that collect toys and donations for children. Last year they collected 10,000 toys! That is so awesome that they do that. Their silent auctions is also one of the largest in Texas, they had over 600 items valued at $800,000! They also had a band on one floor, a DJ on another floor, and a casino. There were lots to do for sure that night. We had danced, socialized, and of course, LOTS OF PICTURES!

This is my one day a year where I get dressed up in a GORGEOUS gown. I went with a gold Nicole Miller dress. It was very old Hollywood. I was inspired to do my makeup and hair like Veronica Lake. I have to say that I did a very good job on myself. I wasn’t sure if I could pull it off because my hair/make up people were super busy that day. My advice for when you are in a pinch, look at youtube videos. That is what I did for my make up/hair.

The night was a hit! Can’t go wrong with meeting new friends, hanging with good friends, and donating to charity.

Then last night my client Madison Plott competed in the Miss Teen Oklahoma pageant. She placed 4th runner up! So proud of how hard she worked for this. Can’t wait for her next pageant! She is one determined little lady!

So proud of my client Madison! GORGEOUS!!
