Check the slideshow, will ya?

They say it's a good thing to step out of your comfort zone every once in a while. So we decided to push ourselves this past Friday, skip dinner to keep our bellies flat and amp up the glam factor with a nice dress for the Grand Opening of the W Scottsdale Hotel on October 24th.

We were certainly thankful for all the preliminary prep work when we had cameras snapping at us on the purple carpet. The crowd was intimidation factor 5000 but we successfully faked our way through the mass of ladies with taught, tan thighs and men with brooding pectorals. With a cameo by Leandro Barbosa and free vodka flowing, the night turned out to be a great time.
