Just got back last night from what was the BEST Arnold experience I have had yet!! EVERYTHING was wonderful-from the hotel I stayed at (Staybridge Suites in Dublin-VERY nice, highly recommend it in the future if you drive your own car) to the shows themselves (both amateur and pro) to all the fantastic people I reconnected with as well as met for the first time at the show and expo, all the way to the Party with the Pros afterwards!! Everyone looked absolutely terrific!! Got a ton of great pics, and it's going to take me a while to process them so they'll be up on this thread eventually. Thanks to everyone again for making this such an enjoyable trip!!

Jeremy, it was great meeting you! Thanks for trying to help me find those pics I lost. I'm not giving up, they must be in here somewhere. But, if I can't find them, I think we made up for them and Kenyatta had some on her camera.

Glad you had fun. Will check out your pics!!

I do, however, have to give a shout-out to one person in particular. I truly loved meeting and reconnecting with everyone at this show, but hands-down no question the COOLEST person I met all weekend was new IFBB pro female bodybuilder and Ms. International contestant Zoa Linsey. I first found Zoa posing for her fans on the expo floor (hard to miss a lady who's almost 6 feet and built like a tank!! :D). She, her husband Joe and I introduced ourselves and we had great conversation. Later that night we reconnected at the Party with the Pros. I got to meet her trainer Noel Fuller and we just hung out together all night, even going for pizza afterwards. From what I could tell she was one of the few IFBB pro FBBs that came down from the VIP area and mingled with her fans that evening. Zoa, you are a marvelous woman who has a HUGE heart--not to mention a flat-out ROCKIN' physique. :D It was wonderful to make a new friend in you. YOU ARE AWESOME, BIG GIRL!! On to the Olympia!!! :awesome: :bowdown: :respect: :awesome: :bowdown: :respect:

Great pics Jeremy. It was great to meet you. I hate I missed Zoa at the party. She is one of my favorite FBB. Maybe I'll get the opportunity another time.

WOW this thread is awesome! :awesome: What was the most memorable moment for you at the Expo?

I would have to say there were three of them. First was meeting Zoa and her husband and chilling with them. Second was meeting Iris Kyle at the Gaspari Nutrition booth. She is SUCH a nice lady, and what a physique on that woman!! Simply in a class all by herself!! Third was getting to meet the immortal Lenda Murray at the Party with the Pros. I got to tell her how much of a fan I was and how much I appreciated all she had done for women's bodybuilding, and she gave me a big hug for that. I am hoping and praying that THOSE pics come out well: we were kind of cramped for space up top, and my camera doesn't focus well up close. Turns out you COULD go into the VIP area after a certain time, so I was able to meet her and several others up there that evening.

Jeremy, I wrote this on the thread on RXmuscle but thank u here also for taking the time to hang out with us! We had a blast that day and it was in large part b/c of the good company. I'm so glad that others can see what motivates me and how much I love this sport and the women in it. I really hope people can see that a positive attitude and spirit of gratitude can do to help show others that bodybuilders are not just alll about the muscle! I appreciate all the kindness and suport I was shown this weekend. I hope many more amazing memories to come!!! :) A few more days and I'll be home, just visiting family in Vanc. now..hope u had safe journeys home and hey WICKED PICS!!!!:)

It was nice to finally meet you, too, Jeremy. If I hadn't been tied up with the webzine, etc., I would have followed you and taken pictures -- you were da man!
