I am so very happy for you!! I can't imagine how difficult it was for you to go through those hardships. :( Heartache like that can be unbearable and shake the strongest of people. I am proud of your determination & so happy that you have found extra strength through SNC! Looking forward to celebrating your accomplishment with you!

DottieK's picture

So proud of all you have accomplished so far with your weight loss goal, Kelli! I admire your self discipline & I know you can reach your goal! I wish I could give you a big hug right now! :) WebCrew's picture

Saw your post on the Feedback tab-- That does sound quite frustrating! With the holiday season just passed, there may be some back-up but from our own experience Artist Arena is generally good about getting back to fans via email. Definitely let us know by Monday if they've still not responded, though.

Hey Kel,

Hope you enjoyed the holiday season and are having a happy new year!

Have you been in contact with Artist Arena regarding your VIP package? They would likely have more information about when that item will be available and how to get a status on that. Contact Artist Arena describing your issue at 212-420-8500 or Hope this helps!

Hi Kelli--

I'm following up on David's last comment. The shirts you were requesting have arrived to Atlantic City. They're waiting in the merchandising booth.

Please let me know if you have any questions!

Hi Kelli...Shirts were ordered and should be in AC asap. Will get an exact date and advise.

Hi Kelli! I just got my tickets today for aug 17 :) hopefully I'll see you there. We're sitting JJ 401 and 402. I'm driving up straight from work with a coworker of mine just for the show. so hopefully we can met up with you before/after the show!

JennAnn's picture

Hi Kelli! It was great meeting you last night. I had a blast! Thanks for all the tips, suggestions, and ideas. As soon as I get home today, I'm definitely going to look into tickets for the last show. Hopefully I'll see you there! :)

See you *THERE*. I can type. Sometimes.

Hi, Kelli! I'm going up just for the evening on August 17, too. See you thee!

Kelli! Was good to see you at Opening Night in Atlantic City, but sorry I didn't get a chance to talk with you! Judging from some of your photos I've seen, you were "right, right smack dab" in the middle of your row and got excellent shots! Hope to get to see you at another show, soon!

Hi! I just "happened" on your comment while checking out the site and wanted to thank you for the warning! I'll have to check that out for sure, as I never heard of that. My friends always said they "give" you free play ($10 or so) with your junket or $ off of food!! One can't be too careful. Thank you again, so much!!

Thank you!! Don't worry about it if you can't get any more. Hope to meet some chasers in AC over the summer. I think my mother and I are going sometime in July. Wouldn't miss it for the world!! LOL :)

The hashtag.. # ..before a word or acronym, is like a way to bookmark a subject. When everyone tweets about it, you can click on it and it takes you to a list of tweets containing that hashtag. The SNCtwitter bugs tend to make up new & funny ones all the time that won't lead to a list of anything, but #blameCarla is our favorite and the one most used. Hope that helps! I'm new to twitter myself & still learning. :)

Kelli, are you on FB? Love to chat with you a little bit :)

Hey Kel, sounds like you really know how to get things done. And, we are all benefiting from your perseverance.
I am from Jersey also,although I live in Tucson currently. I am thinking about a trip "home" this summer and if so I will definitely make a visit to AC. I would definitely pick a day when I could get front row seats. Let me know your dates, I'd luv to meet you and other Chasers...(:

Hi Kelli! Hey, I just wrote about you on the "Tour Dates" blog..but then, I thought I should just write to you!
I'm fairly new (a few months, registered) to the SNC website, but had been *stalking* ^ ~ ^ for a few months before that. I have really enjoyed reading your comments (especially Ryan's *North Korea* one)'ll have to look on the blog to see what I wrote.
I didn't know initially that you could write on someone's profile, or I would have done it sooner...I hadn't seen your name for a while, so it kind of slipped my mind, but then I saw you had commented on this blog.
I went to my first live concert a few weeks was GREAT! I went to the 9pm Indy show, and thought the guys might be worn out, but they sure didn't appear to be! Both shows were sold out, and the show was beyond fantastic!
Love the *Life is short" comment on your absolutely is, and I'm trying to make the most of mine!! KB ^ ~ ^

Thanks for the comment on the restaurant discussion! I'm glad we have a better idea of what to look for in the hotel. Since there are gonna be so many of us there the last night, it really helps to know that there will be something that close to rely on for dinner. Appreciate it! =)
