Famous People

So this morning Harper and I hit Wal-Mart for an early shopping trip and I was in the produce section picking up some squash when I looked over and saw a group at the front of the store. I recognized this woman and got SO excited!

It's Susie - a judge from the Next Food Network Star (which I LOVE!!) and she works for the Food Network. I totally hung out in produce stalking and of course this was a day I left my camera at home. I live in the home of Wal-Mart so I think there were several people from the Food network meeting with several Wal-Mart people and touring the store. I wanted to so run up and say "I want to be the next food network star" but then I realized they would glance in my buggy and see it was full of weight watcher frozen meals and I'm pretty sure they would know not a lot of cooking was going on at my house. ha! SO chawed!
(This was also a morning I kind of rolled out of bed and threw on a razorback t shirt and dabbed a little lipstick on. Not my best day to meet a star! ha!)
I used to work for Wal-Mart and I met several celebrities. One day I went out in the hall to get a coke and ran into M C Hammer (yes that's me back when my hair was still black). I also met Paula Abdul out in the hallway and several other country stars and people not terribly exciting.
My favorite celebrity sighting was when Scott and I went to Kauai in 2008 and ate at a little restaurant and as we walked in Pierce Brosnan (who lives in Kauai) held the door open for us and spoke to us and then sat at the next table over. I was FREAKING out but too chawed to ask for a picture. So Scott took this blurry one while we were trying to play it cool. Pitiful.

I don't know why - but I love seeing celebrities in person. Who have you met?????
