    I’m so grateful for this weekend too- it was a truly amazing experience 🙂 Have a safe flight home and I’ll see you SOON!!

  2. janetha on November 8, 2010 at 8:54 am

    Great to meet you! Xo

  3. Holly @ couchpotatoathlete on November 8, 2010 at 8:54 am

    Haha – So glad to hear the ‘stache is leaving soon 🙂

    And that dress is PURPLE — and I know what you mean by hitting your knee wrong — you need to feel comfortable with what you’re wearing. I’m glad you found something else to wear.

    Have a safe trip home!

    I can totally relate about the mustache! My birthday is tomorrow and I finally get to say goodbye to the thing my boyfriend has been growing on his face for the last three weeks! 😀

  5. Jill on November 8, 2010 at 9:04 am

    I didn’t know there were men reasonable enough to shave their mustaches off during Movember!

  6. Tab - Just Weighing In on November 8, 2010 at 9:12 am

    too bad the grape dress didn’t work, it looked cute! Best part of my weekend? Probably cleaning the house yesterday. Actually, I should clarify – my husband cleaned the house yesterday; vacuumed and everything! 🙂

  7. Mara @ What's For Dinner? on November 8, 2010 at 9:19 am

    I’m truly grateful we got to see each other this weekend! I so wish you lived closer. Your macaroons saved me from starvation on my delayed flight last night!!! Love you!

  8. jenna on November 8, 2010 at 9:28 am

    what an awesome weekend!! how fun!

    who was your roommate? and is that grey bag yours? it’s so CUTE!

  9. Avery on November 8, 2010 at 9:30 am

    Grape dress is cute, but as a shorty myself (5’3″ on a good day) I find dresses to often be a teensy bit too long on me as well. Also, where do you buy your skinny jeans? Whenever I see pics of you in some, they look super cute!

  10. Cyndi @ Weightless Life on November 8, 2010 at 9:38 am

    The best part of my weekend was running my 2nd half marathon, and getting to spend some quality time with my husband.

  11. salah@myhealthiestlifestyle on November 8, 2010 at 9:40 am

    I’m so glad you had such a great weekend!!!! Its so fun to be able to look back and pick out each and everything you are grateful for!!

  12. Jessica @ How Sweet It Is on November 8, 2010 at 9:55 am

    So glad you had such a great time girl! 🙂

  13. Felicia (A taste of Health with Balance) on November 8, 2010 at 9:59 am

    love the banana rep dress, you look amazing! best part of my weekend was spending it with my nephews who i only see a few times a year. they’re all between 3-6 and soo so cute 🙂

  14. justine on November 8, 2010 at 10:40 am

    Aaah, did you stay in the Westin St Francis?! I LOVED the bed there! Definitely Heavenly! I slept like someone shot me with an elephant gun! I definitely left my heart in San Francisco…! Sigh…

  15. Karyn on November 8, 2010 at 10:46 am

    sleeeeeeeeep was the best part of my weekend! hahaha. love that purple dress. bummer that it was too long for you

    love the theme of this post. lots to be grateful for 🙂

  16. Lily's Health Pad on November 8, 2010 at 10:52 am

    The purple would’ve been a really pretty color on you, but it looks like that dress would’ve swallowed you whole!

  17. The Hot and Fit on November 8, 2010 at 10:52 am

    I love the pictures and it looks like you guys had such an awesome time!!

  18. Angela @ Eat Spin Run Repeat on November 8, 2010 at 10:54 am

    I sooo wish I could have been there! Next year for sure. Sleep was definitely a great part of my weekend, as well as a fun blogger meet-up (but not of Foodbuzz proportions!) Hope you have a safe trip back!

  19. Mary @ Bites and Bliss on November 8, 2010 at 10:57 am

    That sure is a lot to be thankful for 🙂 Glad you had such an amazing time!

  20. Diana (Soap & Chocolate) on November 8, 2010 at 11:03 am

    Wow, what an amazing festival! Mad jealz over here – my weekend was the opposite, but I’m still grateful. I got to spend it studying my face off for the personal trainer certification workshop I’m attending in 2 weeks! Very thankful for the potential opportunities coming my way. Safe travels!

  21. Allison @ Food for Healing on November 8, 2010 at 11:06 am

    sounds like it was such a blast, wish i could have been there!

  22. Christin L. on November 8, 2010 at 11:06 am

    I always get excited when my man ditches his facial hair as well, lol!

  23. Heather @ Get Healthy with Heather on November 8, 2010 at 11:07 am

    Glad you had a fun time! I’m sure your puppers can’t wait to see you.

  24. Jess@atasteofconfidence on November 8, 2010 at 11:10 am

    Looks like you had a great time! the best part of my weekend was relaxing – I needed it!

  25. Melissa (MelissaLikesToEat) on November 8, 2010 at 11:14 am

    That grey dress is so beautiful on you!!! Glad you had an amazing time!

  26. rebecca lustig on November 8, 2010 at 11:17 am

    that cake looks SOOO decadent and delicious!

    glad you enjoyed the weekend but are looking forward to heading home sweet home.

    and three cheers for shaving the stache!

  27. Paije on November 8, 2010 at 11:19 am

    So glad you had such a great weekend! Thank goodness for banana republic – you looked stunning!! I’m grateful to get to see the Foodbuzz festival though bloggies like you!!

  28. Ada on November 8, 2010 at 11:20 am

    I’m glad you had a nice time at the Foodbuzz festival! The best part of my weekend was running the NYC Marathon.

  29. Diana on November 8, 2010 at 11:21 am

    Trying your famous macaroon finally (yay!) and Dropping It Low with you were definitely highlights! Not to mention the shopping! Btw, your new dress for the gala was gorgey…you looked so pretty! 🙂

    • Fitnessista on November 8, 2010 at 6:02 pm

      thank you friend! so glad we could have a little dance party 🙂

  30. Kailey (SnackFace) on November 8, 2010 at 11:37 am

    Someday I’ll make it to a city you’re in and we will FINALLY meet. I think that’s the most upsetting part about not being able to attend Foodbuzz. I just want to meet everyone I’ve been internet friends with for almost two years!

    Best part of my weekend was all the reading, watching and relaxing I did!

    xoxo

    • Fitnessista on November 8, 2010 at 6:02 pm

      i can’t wait to finally meet you one of these days, too!
      come to orlando!

  31. Leanne @ Simplicitlee on November 8, 2010 at 11:41 am

    I think taking a moment to say out loud what you’re grateful is so important. A couple times a week, before bed my fiance & I tell eachother what we’re grateful for. It really puts things in perspective and sometimes he’s grateful for something I did for him (that I mightve thought wasnt a huge deal)… it’s really neat 🙂

    This weekend I’m grateful for celebrating my 4 year dating anniversary with my guy. It was lovely <3

  32. Tina @ Faith Fitness Fun on November 8, 2010 at 11:43 am

    This post just put me in a better mood and I NEED that right now. Thanks. 🙂

    And I would be thankful to say goodbye to the mustache too. LOL

    • Fitnessista on November 8, 2010 at 6:02 pm

      <3

  33. Clare @ Fitting It All In on November 8, 2010 at 11:47 am

    Yikes I can see how that dress would be a little difficult to wear…even with a rockin’ body like yours! Well I love the new one you bought so it turned out fine!!

    And the pilot with no mustache is def. something to celebrate! hehe

  34. Misha on November 8, 2010 at 11:54 am

    where did you get your grey bag? I LOVE IT AND NEED IT!

    thx!

    • Fitnessista on November 8, 2010 at 6:01 pm

      that’s michelle- i can’t remember where she said she bought it :/

  35. Megan @ Healthy Hoggin' on November 8, 2010 at 11:55 am

    Sounds like an awesome weekend!!

    The best part of mine? Taking my very first Physique 57 class at their new Beverly Hills studio– it’s SO fun!! They also inspired me to make my very first Lululemon purchase… which is exciting, but addicting! (time to throw my wallet in the freezer!)

    My husband loves growing a mustache, too. I don’t get it. Glad the pilot is shaving his for you! 😉

    • Fitnessista on November 8, 2010 at 6:01 pm

      it’s definitely an addiction! 🙂

  36. Elizabeth on November 8, 2010 at 11:57 am

    where did you get your cute jean outfit? you always looks o cute and put togehter!

    • Fitnessista on November 8, 2010 at 6:01 pm

      thank you!!
      jeans- express
      shirt- lululemon
      sweater thing: forever 21
      shoes: aldo
      🙂

  37. Liz @ Blog is the New Black on November 8, 2010 at 11:59 am

    Looks like tons of fun. Bummer about the dress- it looked cute!

  38. Anna @ Newlywed, Newly Veg on November 8, 2010 at 12:03 pm

    The best part of my weekend was the awesome meal that my hubby cooked for me on Friday night…and getting a new car on Saturday!!! It *almost* made me forget about having to miss Foodbuzz 🙂

  39. Mama Pea on November 8, 2010 at 12:24 pm

    Best part of the weekend was hanging out with you and all of our wonderful “family.” Love you girl!

    • Fitnessista on November 8, 2010 at 6:00 pm

      love you too friend! so glad i could finally meet my blog hero 🙂
      xoxo

  40. Steph on November 8, 2010 at 12:28 pm

    The pilot can’t shave his stash because It’s MOVEMBER! A month which men grow their moustache in support of prostate cancer research. Spread the word!

  41. Brittany (Eating Bird Food) on November 8, 2010 at 12:48 pm

    I am grateful for that delicious raw chocolate mousse that we had at Cafe Gratitude. I’m just hoping you’ll recreate it at home and share the recipe. 😉

    It was great to finally meet you!

    • Fitnessista on November 8, 2010 at 5:59 pm

      me too.
      i’m so glad we finally got to hang out!!

  42. Jill@mysocalledhealthlife on November 8, 2010 at 1:20 pm

    Do you think that dress is fancy enough for a work Christmas party? I’m pretty much obsessed.

    • Fitnessista on November 8, 2010 at 5:59 pm

      totally!
      i’m glad you like it 🙂

  43. Maria on November 8, 2010 at 1:21 pm

    Glad you had such a good time. It looks like it was an amazing trip! xxx

  44. Angie (Losing It and Loving It) on November 8, 2010 at 1:38 pm

    There sure is a lot to be thankful for! This weekend hubby and I worked out together as usual (spin class and 2 walks) and went shopping at the outlet mall for race gear (for me, he’s such a trooper). We’ll be walking the Reggae Marathon half coming next month and wanted to get most of the shopping done this weekend.

    It’s been fun catching up on your fun time at Foodbuzz.

  45. KimEatandBe on November 8, 2010 at 1:47 pm

    It was so great to read about everyone’s experience in San Fran and live vicariously through you guys!
    I have a question and it might seem weird, but how do you get the volume in your hair? I love it and it always looks great, but mine is always flat against my scalp. Grr. I’ve heard of Bump-Its but am afraid to try them. Any tips? Thanks!

    • Fitnessista on November 8, 2010 at 5:58 pm

      haha i always laugh when people ask how i add volume to my hair- it’s just super thick and puffy! my cousin has a bump it and she loves it, though

  46. Hillary [Nutrition Nut on the Run] on November 8, 2010 at 1:53 pm

    You look stunning in your “banana” dress – just lovely!

    • Fitnessista on November 8, 2010 at 5:58 pm

      thanks!!

  47. Averie (LoveVeggiesAndYoga) on November 8, 2010 at 2:29 pm

    Best part of the weekend was coming home to my family after being gone 🙂

    Being a mother has taught me that no matter how much fun I am having, my head, heart, and spirit are with my child (and husband) and nothing is as fun as seeing them again!

    Although of course meeting you and everyone else was amazing!!!

    The purple dress…it totally looks like it *could have been cute..but yes, I can see it’s a lot of fabric and if that doesnt hit right, yeah, it could be less than ideal but the B.R. dress rocked on you!

  48. Katie on November 8, 2010 at 2:35 pm

    The best part of my weekend was taking Thursday and Friday off work, making it a leisurely 4-day weekend, getting a massage, playing with the kitty, and getting all my chores done so I could be lazy with the boyfriend Saturday and Sunday. 🙂 And checking out the new Market Fresh store, sampling all of the items, wine tasting, cheese tasting (ended up getting a cranberry-cinnamon goat cheese… Mmm!!!), and got crab stuffed salmon for dinner!

  49. Shanna, Like Banana on November 8, 2010 at 2:56 pm

    Best part of my weekend was making peanut butter chocolate chip banana bread 😉

    Oh and eating fabulous mexi food on Fri night!

  50. Sana on November 8, 2010 at 3:05 pm

    You are sooooo pretty, but that dress was not flattering at all- good call on the other one :)!
