Thank You BOOBs!

There are so many things to tell you about the BOOBs weekend in Chicago.  Therefore, I have decided to do a photo montage. 

First of all, there was some peanut butter cookie eatin' in bed.  
You just can't start a vacation without some cookies:

Then there was a heated discussion about how the ideal bandster beverage 
is water, Crystal Light, Miralax, and Malibu Rum.  
Yeah, ummm...that's what may or may not be in that bottle that I'm spokes modeling:

 A memorable breakfast with a few of my newest favorite bandster buddies
(far left: Becky & second from right Shannon).  
Oh and don't forget the fabulous Stephanie and Julie too! 

Did you know that roommates who offer to bring me my Starbucks in 
bed in the morning are worth their weight in gold?
Here's my roomie Stephanie snugglin' under the covers.  
Time to get up and fetch me my Skinny Caramel Latte Steph...  
Seriously.  Go.  Now.  Mmmmkay?

You really can't trust other tourists to take centered photos:

Ridin' the Ferris wheel at Navy Pier.  Then we proceeded to get super nauseous on the swings that go 'round and 'round and 'round.  whew! Makes me sick just thinkin' about that.

 The silver blobby bean looking thing at Millennium Park which 
totally reminds me of the space ship from Flight of the Navigator movie.  Just sayin'

Non-scale victory alert! I heaved my ass up onto a cement wall that was about 5+ feet high.  
It happened.

Segways are sexy.  The end.

When was the last time you practiced your jazz hands?
The next time you're out and about (said in a Canadian accent), give those jazz hands a whirl.  
You won't regret it.

You haven't had pizza until you've had deep-dish Chicago pizza.  
YUM! I ate the whole thing.  Our little secret, OK?

What an BEAUTIFUL group of ladies!  Do you see Fluffy? She's there in the bottom left corner.

I would like to send a BIG THANK YOU to the lovely and talented organizers who planned our fun weekend.  Who knew that BOOBs 2.0 would be even better than BOOBs 1.0?!?  
Their amazing spreadsheet skills put me to shame.  Thanks ladies!


  1. It was so awesome to meet you! I know I am not the only one that can say that you are an inspiration to many many of us!

  2. I cannot wait to meet you next year!! : )

  3. Glad you had a good time... Hope I get to meet ya next year :)

  4. You made me lol with your comment about not trusting other tourists to take centered photos, lol again!

    And I think the photo of you on the 5' wall may be my favorite of you yet! And breakfast with you and Steph and Shannon was awesome, emphasis on the AWE! AND, I really wanted to go to Navy Pier, so way to go, you made it to Navy Pier! Glad you enjoyed the segway tour again this year. I'm absolutely going next time, for sure :)

  5. Great pictures. Thanks for sharing. I think it's safe to say, I've been living the BOOBS trip through everyone this past week.

    I hope to be there next year.


  6. What a fun trip!! Glad you had a good time!

  7. You all look amazing. Looks like a good time had by all! Hope there is a BOOB's 3 next year!

  8. Meeting you and spending time with you, was the highlight of the weekend for me! You truly are remarkable and so amazing!

    Love you!

  9. Sounds like you guys had so much fun. I really want to go next year

  10. Great post, it was great to see you again!!

  11. Loved the photos. And you are too funny girl, lol. Love reading all the different perspectives of this trip.

  12. Thanks for the mad props! All the work was worth it if everyone had such a great time! See you next year!

  13. Hi, Just a note on points. On the old program (lots of people are still on it) you could pretty much count 50 calories as a point. We used to count calories, fat and fiber. Now we count carbs, protein, fiber and fat. There is just no way to relate a number of calories to what a point is now. Oatmeal went from two to four points and cottage cheese came down from three to two. Most things went up a point or two but they gave us more points to work with. Hope this is not more information than you ever hoped to get.

  14. Great post roomie! I'd love to bring you more morning coffee. :)

  15. Great pics! I'm doing Jazz hands, right now, just for you! :)
