Fit First Lady Watch: FL Obama Hits The Heisman Pose

Fit First Lady Watch: FL Obama Hits The Heisman Pose

I can’t be out here referring to the First Lady as a “fit chick,” man.

But still…a few months ago, the Fit First Lady hit the Heisman pose with a few Dallas Cowboys (yuck) players in this adorable aqua-colored skirt. I guess this really is the color this year, huh?

From The White House Flickr account:

First Lady Michelle Obama strikes the Heisman pose while greeting Dallas Cowboys football players, from left, Miles Austin, DeMarcus Ware, and Felix Jones at the Kleberg Rylie Recreation Center in Dallas, Texas, Feb. 10, 2012. The players joined Mrs. Obama and chefs from past seasons of “Top Chef” for the “Schools and Chefs Working Together” cooking competition to help promote the “Let’s Move!” initiative.

Those poor guys are totally beside themselves, right now. Look at the one on the right – I bet his face hurt later from all that ear-to-ear grinning.

Also got a couple of other photos from the event (mainly as an opportunity to post pictures of my secret love, favorite TV chef/personality, Tom Colicchio):

Listen. I’m trying to be on Madame First Lady’s level when I reach her age. I just… I love she.

[hugs photos tight]

    That outfit is nicely colorblocked. I always adore this woman. There is NOTHING about her I don’t like. I would be crushed to find that she is a serial killer….

    Man y’all just don’t know. i have the biggest lady crush on Michelle. And yes, i refer to her as Michelle; not out of disrespect, but in my head we are best homies. She always looks so great. love her. Thats another thing i love about the Obamas: they smile. And the smiles look sooooo geniune. and they’re contagious. i find mysef just a cheesing whenever i see her making an appearance.

    Amazing woman strong and not afraid to show her greatness. I would love to know how she deals with everything she is just a rock.

    She stands tall in who she is, her convictions and comfortable being herself.

    The First Lady is like concentrated awesomeness! I’m inspired by her in so many ways. She’s one of those people that makes you want to be the best person that you can be. And you know what… she’s a “chick” too.
    I can totally see her and the Pres kicking back on Sunday watching the game in rival basketball jersies. Talking smack and everything. lol
    She’s just that real and complete!

    I guess we all have a “girl crush” on the lady. I am working on my Michelle arms and shoulders for next summer. My goal is to wear my first strapless dress and look good!
