I met the First Lady!

That's right! Yesterday I met the First Lady! I usually don't like to discuss politics on my blog, but this is a special occasion.  MR.P's company was hosting the 1st year anniversary for the event Let's Move.  The Boosterthon team entertained everyone while they waited outside.  It was FREEZING!!!  I was outside for an hour and a half and my fingers and toes almost fell off ;)  The First Lady came to speak about childhood obesity and her passion about changing that through Let's Move.  I stood on stage behind her with some of the other Boosterthon team.  Once she was finished I got to shake her hand!  She was so personal and looked at each of us in the eyes.  She even held onto my arm for a while so she could shake other people's hands.

(I'm on the first row, second from the right in the pink!)

Here we are afterwards.  My friends Lyndie, Christina, Jessica, and myself. We had a blast. We were supposed to be still and not fidget, but I think we were all a little star struck ;)

On a different note...she was beautiful!  She wore a beautiful white suit and snake skin heals. Absolutely stunning.  It was such a cool experience and I felt so honored to be a part of it!

Just to clear your conscience, enjoying a face to face meeting with the First Lady of the United States, whomever she may be, has nothing to do with politics. So enjoy your moment. No disclaimers required.
