I am excited to report that my very first “O” in Las Vegas included an encouhttp://www.hananfitness.com/wp-content/uploads/2012/04/very-first-o.jpegnter with Jenna Jameson.

OK, It was just a tweet, but have YOU ever tweeted with a celebrity??? Haha. I never did have my in-person greet with Jenna at the Olympia, but she was there… along with thousands of others who traveled from around the world to be apart of the 2011 Mr. Olympia weekend.

What an amazing weekend it was! I was so excited to be invited to join team Magnum for the weekend …. Not going to lie I was a little nervous attending and rooming with girls I had never met before, this was outside my comfort zone and after all it’s Vegas  …  I was relieved to be joined by my sweet friend Fatima Kusch … Given I never traveled with her I still was a little nervous, I mean she could have been a nut too lol.

We arrived on Thursday afternoon and headed straight to the pool, we were soon joined by some lovely ladies… Andrea Smith and Heather Robertson.

Later that evening after a team meeting where I got to meet the rest of the lovely Magnum crew, Fatima and I headed out to the Oxygen Party 😉

It was an early night since I had a 7am shoot with TC Chang Photography for 2012 Status calendar submissions. (Thanks Markus for the opportunity) I had 5am Hair and makeup with the AMAZING Valerie Nova, getting done up by her was definitely a high light in my weekend.

After the shoot headed straight to the Expo….

WOW. If you haven’t been to an Olympia weekend in Vegas, it’s basically THE event that the fitness industry looks forward to every year!  You discover the latest and greatest in products, meet the pros, and drool over hot bodies, haha.  The pro’s and fans come together for one incredible weekend in Vegas!

Being new to the Magnum Team, this was my first year representing them at the show.  I really saw-first hand how well respected Magnum is in the industry. I actually felt… ‘Proud’, gasp! Haha.  It’s easy to represent a company that you see ROCKS from the inside out.

That evening after a get together with the team, we headed out to the Fitness Gurls Magazine Party where they announced the Cover girl Search Winner. Congratulations Leigh Brandt … Well deserved.

On Saturday after another full day at the Expo I had a shoot with Pink Elephant… I am so excited to see what we did, they were amazing to work with! I can’t wait to post some :)

That night we got dolled up and headed out to dinner with our crew and then XS for the Bodybuilding.com party, There I had the pleasure of meeting Ryan DeLuca the CEO at BodyBuilding.com (this man radiates good energy, I was very excited to meet him)

Sunday was pool party day …  Got to relax pool side and met some more amazing people …. One who I wish to shoot with VERY soon! The very talented Paul Buceta!!!! Ummm can someone put in a good word for me with Santa this year, I’ve been a very good girl!!!

Look forward to next year!

Ps. I’ve been trying out a product that everyone was buzzing about in Vegas …… Will review soon!
