Enthused? Try Elated.

Remember how I said my Saturday night was going to be amazing?  Well, it was.

When Rachel asked me to co-host a Nintendo Wii Fit Plus party I: squealed, giggled, did a little dance, then said YES.  I have had only one other Nintendo Enthusiast experience — an absolutely amazing dinner during BlogHer that I am still ever so grateful to have been a part of.  However, after meeting the Brand About Town ladies at BlogHer who wouldn’t want to take part in anything they’ve got a hand in?

Anyway.  Time flew and before I knew it, the day had come for Rachel, myself, the awesome folks from the Nintendo Wii Fit Plus team, and a great group of lovely ladies to gather for a super evening.

Look! My name’s on a sign!

We learned about the features of the Wii Fit Plus — customizing my routine? Thank you!  The new games? Sweet.  Multi-player? Bring it.  Profiles for my kitties? I love you.  After doing a customized routine we were set loose — each of us at our own station.  We played games, tried different yoga poses, snacked on yummy things (their fruit smoothies — amazing!) and had some wine…

I could do this every day.  Gather with awesome friends in a swanky studio in the West Loop, actually enjoy getting fit? Yes please!  The evening did have to end though, and thanks to Brand About Town and Nintendo, we all left with our own Wii Fit Plus and fabulous Wii Fit Plus jackets!

Thank you Nintendo & Brand About Town!

Again, a big thanks to all the ladies who came out!  It was a blast meeting new Chicago gals and hanging out with some of my great friends!  Can’t wait to hear about your experience with the Wii Fit Plus!


Today was Day 3 of my Wii Fit Plus routine.  I love it.  I can tell I’m getting better to since yesterday my Wii Fit age was 33 and now it’s 20.  Who rocks? Oh yea, that’d be me.
