What started out as an ordinary day turned pretty stinkin' cool as I met the woman who inspired me to blog (even though it took me a long while to get started). I was in group C, so I was relatively close to the beginning of the line.. I've never in my life seen a bookstore so crowded! Hubs showed up while I was already in line and didn't want to fight hundreds of hormonal women, so he chilled in a chair reading a magazine until I was done. Even on the outskirts, he said that his estrogen level was through the roof!

While waiting in line for days an hour or so, who would come traipsing by asking for the kid's section but Marlboro Man himself?! I tried to snap a quick photo, but being that my camera is dirt, I only got a picture of Lauren instead.. Oh well, you can see his outline.. sort of..

We then discussed what we could say to such a person as PW.. Should we comment her auburn hair? Ask about Charlie ? Tell her that we were here on our first anniversary and left our husbands just so we could meet her and that we came all the way from Mississippi, no, not today, just here for the weekend, and that we just HAD to come meet her? (In case you're wondering, I DID NOT say that.. Okay, so maybe I did.. Shame overcomes me..)

Then, I came across Marlboro Man.. Being that I was hot and didn't want to stand in line for a real photo with him, and I snapped a quick stalker photo of him.
Why do I do these things?
Anywho, the Pioneer Woman booksigning was even better than I thought it would be. Not only did I meet one of my role models (okay, so maybe that's a little much..), I also made a couple of new friends.. and have blog followers! I'm moving on up! =)
So long followers (all three of you)! It's been a long weekend, and I have to return to the exciting world of banking in the morning!
