- Rich Siegelman, the Maryland NPC Chairman and promoter of the show, asked J and me if we could pick up Jay Cutler from the airport on Friday night and bring him to the host hotel. Um YES!!
- We would be working with our sponsor, Big Big Formula, at the show expo. FUN!!
The weekend was shaping up to be an awesome experience!
As J and I sat listening to the live band at the Baltimore airport (weird, right?!), we both admitted that we were really nervous to spend some quality one-on-one time with Jay.

We both agreed not to ask a million questions so as not to come across as annoying fans (which we totally are!). While J worried about what to talk about, I worried about all the dog hair and glitter on the seat in my car. I hoped Jay wouldn't mind a little dog hair and glitter on his butt. I decided that since he has dogs, he'd prolly be ok with it.
When we saw him enter the baggage claim area, we both pretended to be really cool and calm (I think we hid the spastic-ness fairly well). Jerry wanted a pic of them together to post on the show event page on Facebook, so I snapped their picture as we headed to the car.

I discovered that Jay Cutler takes up 1.5 seats in my little Jetta. He and J kept bumping elbows over the center console because apparently Jettas aren't designed for 225+lb bodybuilders. It turns out that since Jay is also from New England, he and Jerry had a lot of acquaintances in common. They talked non-stop about people they knew from "back home" all the way to the hotel. I thought it was so cool that the top bodybuilder in the world was chatting with my boyfriend like he was just another guy from home. My already high opinion of Jay increased exponentially.
When we got to the hotel, we got Jay checked in, then went out to eat with Rich and a few other people who were also working at the show.
On Saturday, we arrived at the venue early and hung out at the Big Bitch Formula (BBF) table all day. We got to know the rest of the BBF crew and had a blast together! Everyone is so nice! Jerry and I feel so blessed to be a part of such a wonderful group of people and to support a product we genuinely believe in.

Our table just happened to be RIGHT NEXT to Jay Cutler's table! What are the odds?! So we basically got to hang out next to him all day. So. Cool.

It was a long, hot (AC was broken at the venue) day, but so much fun! When we headed out, we said goodbye to Jay and he kissed me on the cheek!! ZOMG!!! Best. Day. EVAR.
