A Very Cool Kind of Weekend

This weekend was definitely one to blog about.

So a few months ago, a show aired on ABC called Extreme Makeover Weight Loss Edition.
One of the guys on there, Alex Respess lived in Georgia.

Through the fabulous world of Twitter, Chris and Alex started tweeting back and forth.
This weekend our church kicked off a new series called "I Quit" and the topic of today was to quit making excuses.

Well Chris had the bright idea that it would be awesome if we could get Alex to come out.
And well, one thing led to another and voila....he came!

Awesome....i know!

Here's a look at Alex's before and after....
Just so happens he's dating Courtney from Biggest Loser Season 11! Yep, she's my new bestie!

So they came into town Saturday night and we had dinner with these super cool peeps and just hit it off! And then we pretty much spent the majority of the day with them Sunday. They are awesome.
For realz!
Alex did a great job on stage for our services and the people loved it!

Aren't we a cute crowd?

Seriously, they are awesome! I'm super excited about our new friendship!
They're so very inspiring and real. LOVED them!

I'll post the video from the service as soon as it's ready!
