Holy Ping Pong Tables, Batman!

Wow, it's been 10 days since I've updated y'all.  A very busy, freakishly busy 10 days.  So, I'll apologize.  :)

Quick update here:

1.  I'm in Denver right now, and will be for a week.

2.  Yesterday was my 28th birthday, and I spent it well.  Dan and I went with my brother to the Mile High Music Festival to see two of my all time favorite bands play:  Punch Brothers, and Dave Matthews Band.

Dan and I:  (I'm wearing my $65 Dave Matthews Hoodie, damn-it!  I was freezing and it was the only option.  Oh well, happy birthday, me.) :/

My brother and I!

3.  As a side-note, Chris Thile totally knows who I am and I feel uber special.  We were waiting in the line to see them (you know, where everyone brings their CD's and things for the band to sign,) - and the guys were all lined up sitting in chairs behind a table.  When I got up to the table, Chris saw me, stood up and gave me a hug, saying "It's good to see you again!"  I'm pretty sure all the other people who he did NOT stand up to hug... were jealous.  Yeah, be jealous!  :)  -- I didn't nearly feel like I'd pass out this time around, but I also didn't get a picture with him again.

4.  I stuck to the plan pretty well yesterday - though I did have chicken fingers at the festival, I didn't eat the fries.  I came back to my Brother's house and his friend had low carb brownies.  I ate one of those with some almond milk, and decided that'd be my "sweet treat" for my birthday instead of eating cake later and regretting it with the fire of a thousand suns.

5.  I have no idea what I weigh at the moment - I'll have updates on that when I get to my parent's house.  (My brother doesn't own a scale, I don't think.  Silly boys.)

6.  Overall, my feeling of the day yesterday is this, the way the sky was last night before sunset:

Yeah! Happy Birthday (again!) ;)

#1 Hair looks AWESOME!

#2 Chris Thile stalker (obviously since he knows you and could probably pick you out from a line-up if something ever happened.)

#3 SO proud of you on the low carb brownie choice vs. cake. I know we talked about it and I think you made the right choice.

#4 Cute sweater BUT freezing? It's feels like the "fire of one thousand suns" here.

I miss you. . .

have fun and (maybe) buy your cute little bro a scale.

I love Colorado and the chill in the air. After living in hell (Phoenix) for so many years, what a breath of fresh air. Glad you had fun!

I am mucho envious at you seeing Dave Matthews - we should have planned our holiday better so we could have seen him in Denver!

Any top tips/must do's while we're there?

HaPpY bIrThDaY!
Belated, but well wishes sent your way regardless. Reading your blog and learning about your life makes me feel like I've not done anything with my own. You're an amazing woman to have accomplished so much. Wanna send some of that good mojo my way? I could use it!

Hi Jenny,
This is my first time visiting your blog and I love it! Congrats on your progress ... you should be so proud!
Your starting stats were very similar to mine. Odd how you can lose very little scale weight yet drop 2 dress sizes? (I did). it's a little frustrating but I don't get too hung up on it ... feeling too good. Checked out some of your old posts too. Great site ... keep up the awesome work!
