Meeting Jerry


I know it has been a while since I have posted anything but life has kept me really busy!! I was in New Orleans this past week for work and had a run in with a celebrity! It was a first for me and I was star struck to say the least. I was eating dinner with some people from my team at Bourbon House grill (great food by the way) when I looked up and Jerry O'Connell was walking my direction. (you know the chubby kid on Stand By Me who finds the dead body) :) Anyway, I was so excited to see someone famous out in public I wasn't sure what to do with myself! My friend Deena decided on the way out of the restaurant she would ask him for a picture and let me just tell you he was so nice!! He stood up and shook our hands, asked me when my baby was due and proceeded to tell me about his wife (Rebecca Romijn Stamos) being pregnant with twins. Then he looked at me, touched my stomach and said I looked very pretty and he wished me the best of luck with my pregnancy! It was a wonderful moment! :)

That is so cool! He is such a cutie! The closest I have come to meeting a celebrity was in the Amarillo airport. I saw Aaron Neville and his band. I was working up the courage to say hello, when one of his band members looked at me and said...mmmm mmmm mmm good. OMG! I freaked out and ran the other direction when I realized I was wearing one of those (now considered hideous) Eagles Eye sweaters in the Campbell Soup theme!

That's great!
I've seen Avery Johnson, we set a couple seats down from him at Cornerstone Church, I've seen Nicole Richie and Paris Hilton while driving down the road in Bandera and I met Robert Earl Keen in Church. One of the Dixie Chics lives right down the road with hubby (or maybe ex) Charlie Robinson.
Your meeting with a star sounds more exciting!!

That is so sweet. I like to think of celebrities as real people. I never realized that he was that kid!! Chad just bought that movie on the clearance rack at Walmart. He loves it.

You win because you have a picture but I was pretty excited about my NKOTB experience!
