Stars: They're Just Like Us

I'm linking up today with my blog buddy Holly. (Who, BTW, is one of my favorite blogs to follow.  Crazy funny lady.  Please check her out. You won't be sorry.)  We're talking celebrities today.  Have you ever seen or met a celebrity?  Are you just a little obsessed with US Weekly?  Do you wish you were one of the rich and famous?  Yes, yes and yes.

I feel like the celebrities in the pictures below should be posting these pics to their Facebooks letting the world know they've had their pictures taken with me. Right? Well, that's the way I like to view it.  The purpose of the link-up today is to share your celebrity sightings?  I couldn't decide on just one so I'm throwing them all at you today.  With pictures for proof. (Except for one.)

Yes, some of these pictures were taken because I absolutely followed them to their location and made these moments happen.  Were they all pleased with me?  No.  But guess what?  You wanna be famous and be in my sights you better get ready for the approach.
-Jordan Knight-

This was taken in the lobby of his hotel after his concert about 8 years ago.
Did we drive like nuts down a one way street downtown to follow the black car with tinted windows that we weren't even really sure that belong to him to get this pic?
Did he say one word to me while I professed my life long love for the New Kids on the Block?
Was it one of the BEST moments of my life?
Oh yeah!

-Isaac Hanson-

This was taken in the parking lot of my work place.
One thing I can tell you about Isaac Hanson.....he was not MY biggest fan.  It was obvious he was busy.  On and off his phone before he ever entered the building.  I spotted him out the window and immediately ran to the lobby to cut him off before he went anywhere.  I waited.....and waited.....and waited.  When he finally came inside I sat in the chairs outside the elevators and stairs.  I knew he was going upstairs and that was the only way to get there.  HeWAS going to see me.  
I had made my decision, if he was going up the elevator I was jumping in with him.  If he took the steps.....I guess I was just going to let him go.  Which option did he take?  The steps.  I froze and then blurted out "Hey!"  He turned around, still on the phone, and gave me a half way dirty look.  I could tell he wasn't up for a chat and I didn't know my next line so I idiotically asked, "Are you Isaac Hanson?"  MORON!!!!
He pointed to his phone (as if to tell me he was on an important call and did not want to be interrupted) and nodded his head.  That was it.  The end of our relationship.....or was it?


I was immediately ticked that he didn't even give a little wave.  Jerk.
Well guess what?  He had to leave the building at some point so he was going to see my pretty face again.  I was going to respect his privacy if he was still on the phone when he left.  I didn't want to be too ridiculous.  I watched out the front window for maybe 45 minutes and all of a sudden there he was. Walking to his car.  I made my way out the side door to cut him off yet another time.  I busted out the door and yelled "Isaac!"  He turned.  He saw my face.  He frowned.  I still approached him with a pen and Hanson poster in hand.  I asked if he would sign my poster and he acted so put out that he had to open his door and put his man bag down to free up his hands.  At this point I was so over him.  I just wanted my poster back so I could get back to work.  As soon as I turned around most of my co-workers were standing in the doorway and one was in my face with a camera.  She basically told him he was going to take a picture with me and that's exactly what he did.

We never saw each other again.

For all you PBR fans here is the beautiful Robson 
Palermo himself.  Doesn't speak much English so I may or may not have shown him pictures of my dog.

-Katherine McPhee-

Met her at the Tulsa State Fair.  Thank you Denver for helping me meet her even though the meet and greet session was already over.

-Brian Littrell-

Met him after we saw him by the tour busses before the NKOTBSB concert.  We stopped in the middle of street, car running and ran to the gate yelling his name.  He was trying to ignore us because he was driving remote control cars with his kid.  We won!

-Amy Grant-

This was such a surreal moment.  I grew up on her music and she has been such an inspiration when it comes to my own music.  She had a show in Broken Arrow a couple of years ago and I had the hook up to get backstage.  It was a very special moment for my brother and sister and I.

Okay, so, I've also met Steve Guttenberg but I cannot cannot cannot find that picture.  My sister and I met him in Las Vegas several years ago and he was absolutely so nice.  Once I find the picture you will be the first to know.

OH, and while I was going through some old stuff last week I found this little number.....

Been spotting celebrities my whole life I guess.

Happy Friday to you!

Thank You For All My Hands Can Hold

Oh goodness, where do I even start with what I am thankful for.  Soooooo much!  This Thanksgiving was filled with too many things to mention.  It was such a blessing to have my little one sit at the table with us while we ate.  It excites me to know that this is just the beginning of many many many Thanksgivings together and starting our own traditions.

We started the morning like I have for many years by watching the Macy's Thanksgiving Day Parade.  I have to say I was a little emotional.  I get this way around the holidays but adding a new baby to the mix is going to make me a cry baby for sure!

Parade Watching

Happy Thanksgiving

We haven't had a family photo since her newborn pics a week after she was born.
It was time for one.....

.....or two

Big girl at the dinner table.

I DID NOT participate in Black Friday shopping.  All those people just shoving and pushing are ridiculous.  I really just don't need anything that bad. 

I did, however, sign up with Instagram and I'm kind of addicted.  I didn't want to sign up cause I didn't want to follow the trend of what everyone else was doing but I gave in.  

#1 reason why I like makes everything look prettier :)

Oh, AND we started cereal this week. She just looked so stinkin' cute with that little spoon in her mouth.  I just love her!

Did a little Christmas decorating in the house.
I didn't get around to it last year cause I was pregnant and just didn't feel good.
NOT this year!  

Saw this on Pinterest and it made me laugh.  I actually never saw this movie until I met Zach.  Now it's one of our favorite movies to watch every year.

Hope everyone had a great Thanksgiving break and have fun returning to work tomorrow.  Lucky for me I don't return until Wednesday.  Yay!

Orange You Glad I Found These?

Who has a husband that pays attention to his wife when she is crying about never getting to eat an orange cupcake from Hostess ever again even though she only eats them like once a year?


Got a little surprise when I got home from work today.

Had to capture the moment in case these never surface the face of the earth again.

Even Monica is eyeing them.

It was a great little gift to come home to.

These two cupcakes no longer exist.
The other package is in the freezer.

When I reach my goal weight I'm thawing out these puppies!

(Look at me blogging 2 days in a row!)

My Little Spoon

Umm, so I know I'm kind of lame when it comes to blogging lately.  I'm trying to do better.  I promise!

Let's start with the good stuff.....

Evelyn just had her 4 month check up this past week and everything checked out perfect.  I thank the Lord every day for such a healthy perfect baby.  We are so blessed!!  She is 25 1/2 inches long and 12 pounds 15 ounces.  She's basically a long skinny baby according to her percentages.  Tall and skinny? So not like her momma but our faces sure do look alike.

I found a few baby pictures of me this week so I decided to do a little side by side comparison.

I think it's safe to say we have the same eyes and nose :) I just love this little girl SOOOO much!

At Evelyn's check up her doctor told us that we could start giving her cereal and then when she is good with that to go ahead and give her some baby food.  BABY FOOD!?!?!?!  The thought of her putting a little spoon in her mouth is almost too much for this momma to handle.  

Do these colors look good on me?

"What's this?"

I stepped out of my comfort zone Friday night and met up with some people that I don't know and it turned out to be a great night.  More on that next time.....

This momma is tired and needs to get herself to bed.  So glad I'm only working 2 days this week.  Yahoo!!!

It's Turkey Week!

Evy's First Halloween

Happy First Day of November!!  The Christmas music has officially started playing full time on my iPod.  Makes me happy.  

Evelyn experienced her first Halloween last night.  I didn't dress her up cause I couldn't find anything simple for an infant.  I didn't want to put her in a big costume that she would wear once and probably spit up on all night.  I looked for a onsie that looked like a cat or something but I couldn't find anything.  So we just went with a "My First Halloween" onsie.  It worked just fine.

Obviously we didn't take her around to houses.  I don't want to be known as the adults who dressed their 4 month old up just to get candy for themselves.  I don't think so.  So we went to my brother's house for some yummy chili, watched some Hocus Pocus and ate lots of candy.  I stuffed my face a little too much knowing today I was going to attempt to get back in the habit of eating better.  I've done pretty good today.

We officially have a "roller over".  Evy rolled over several times last night and you would've thought we all won the lottery as much as we were screaming and getting excited.  It was a big deal, okay?  She was doing her rolling again tonight and I think it's just about the cutest thing.  It's one more new thing to mark on the calendar.

She's getting so big!  On the 3rd she will be 4 months old AND it was on November 3rd last year that I found out I was pregnant.  And then 9 months later we finally got to meet her.

I'm totally in love with her!

Have a good weekend and don't be afraid to get your Christmas stuff out ;)
