Wasn't that a movie a zillion years ago?
Well, OK, this famous person didn't come to dinner cause I was too lame to think of doing something awesome like that. BUT, she did show up at my front door! I was so excited to meet her!
Yup Cherie from Bakow Babble came to my little humble abode!!!! I love when famous people show up at my door.
I tried to refrain from jumping up and down and making a total fool of myself because I was so excited to finally meet her. Hopefully she only thinks of me as a partial fool. Isn't she the prettiest?
I met Kim this summer and now Cherie.
Does life get any better?
She brought her darling daughter
Brittany and handsome son Trent. It was a real treat to be able to yak and yak and yak. I am pretty sure I saw Trent do about fifty double-eye rollovers, but he was very tolerant. His mama has raised him to be a polite young man.
And yes, life does get better cause Cherie brought me Christmas kisses, you know the white chocolate with peppermint pieces. I hid them in my secret stash of midnight snackies as soon as she left cause I'm not so generous as to share treats like that.
She was so nice and fun and interesting. It was like we had met before. She has a beautiful smile and wonderful spirit and she was so kind. LOVED meeting her. She had met Kimmie the day before. Kimmie lives in my town and I know who she is, so there is ANOTHER famous person I know.
Cherie said she had come to visit Brittany and do Christmas wreaths. She posted a tutorial about them here. Well, being the non-crafty person that I am and being one that has no original ideas of my own, I promptly sent an email out to my daughters and daughters-in-law and informed them of this fabulous craft idea that I came up with that we were going to do on Black Friday. They all emailed me back and told me they were so excited to get together and do this fabulous craft and "you are such a wonderful mother and mother-in-law and so creative, we hope to grow up and be as awesome as you someday blah blah". (Sorry Cherie, but I'll stoop to whatever level it takes to be most awesome!)
I'm slightly embarassed that I wasn't wearing make up and looking fabulous like they were, but it was my day off and my face wanted a rest.
Again, it was great to meet her and meet such an awesome woman and new friend!
