I had such a great day yesterday. I got to go and meet Jorge in San Diego. I was in the bank Wednesday afternoon around 3pm making a payment and got a phone call from Oliver at Jorge's office. I already know him from corresponding with him and Evan about me being n Jorge's new book coming out the end of this month. (The link to order is on the left on Amazon.com)
Guess what? I am on page 10. Woo Hoo!
So Oliver said would you like to fly over here to San Diego with some others and meet Jorge and taste some of his new recipes and be in a video? So I was like: SURE!! But I will drive, I live in Chino Hills and its not that far. I guess this girl Kellie was supposed to go but got real sick - so I was the stand-in and happy to do it.
So he emailed me all the info on where and what to bring to wear. I got all my stuff ready, I was told to bring 3 each dresses, tops, pants and shoes. It said high heels for women only. haha.
I was supposed to be at Jorge's house at 11am, so I got up early - couldn't really sleep. I was excited. I ate my breakfast of: 2 eggs, turkey bacon, berries, and a carb chopper wheat tortilla w/cheese, and of course coffee.
I put my stuff in the car and got a phone call saying it was put off until 12 so I went back in and checked my email and saw that email from them saying it was changed to 12. I also noticed that Amber and Anthony (who lost over 200lbs ) was on the list of email recipients.
Ok so I left at 9:30 and my GPS said it would take 2 hours. I was almost there and got a call saying to meet them at this Best Western instead. So I went there and the girl at the counter didn't know who Jorge was or what I was talking about. I looked out the front window and saw 3 people sitting at a table around the pool, walked over and saw Amber. I said Hey, and she started yelling- OMG, You're Here! She had no idea.
I met Anthony D'Amato and Nicole. the 3 of us talked and Evan came and picked us up and we had a light lunch. Amber and I split a salad.
|It was just thru that alley way about 2 buildings from the beach.|
|Super nice couple and adorable!|
|Me and Nicole.|
|This is Jerod holding the camera. I called him Popeye cause of his huge muscley arms, and Oliver standing next to him.|
|This is Evan and I can't remember the girls name. My middle-heimers. Duh.|
|All of us with Jorge, Karl-Alie-Anthony-Jorge-Amber-Nicole-Me|
|All of us with his crew|
When we were done Evan, Amber, Anthony, Nicole and I went to the beach for a few minutes.
Thanks for listening as always. Lots of love to you all.
