I am FREAKING OUT!!!



Okay, so I really was FREAKING OUT!!! Last night my cousin Sara had asked if I would meet her at The Gateway to help her choose some cute clothes out for a cruise that her & her huzzy are going on. Well I got there a tad bit early & was starving so I thought I would go grab some Orange Chicken from the good ol' Panda Express. Well, I'm sitting down minding my own biznis' & all of the sudden half of the cast from "SO YOU THINK YOU CAN DANCE" walks in. By the time that I finished eating my food & got up the nerve to go approach them & ask if I could get my picture taken with them, only Joshua (be still my heart, the WINNER), Twitch & Will were the only ones that had stuck around to eat their food. But originally Comfort, Chelsea & Mark were there as well. It was so insane, at one point while they were waiting for their food Comfort & Twitch started flippin' poppin'- I about D.I.E.D! I of course right of the bat called Krista on my cell & told her what was taking place right in front of me & said that I wished that she was there with me (she is my So You Think You Can Dance buddy)! Sooo, back to me approaching them, I was such a star struck maniac, I was all "I would kick myself in the butt if I didn't come up & ask to get my picture taken with you, Oh my goodness! I love you guys, You are sooooo awesome, I watched faithfully every week & voted for all ya'll!" I am not even close to kidding. They were super nice to me though & acted happy to pose for the picture. It turns out that they are in town for tour & are actually performing tonight. Later while I was walking around with Sara I saw another cast member, can't remember his name as of now, but he reminds me of my bro-in-law David. What a fabulous night! Such an adrenaline rush for me- FREAKING OUT STILL!

That is so awesome! I ran into Marie Osmond once at Wal Mart. Wasn't as exciting as your experience, but I was a little star struck as well. I fumbled a few words out of my mouth and then kicked myself in the butt later for not saying anything more interesting...crazy, fun!!

I'm glad that you got up the nerve to ask for a picture. I remember how excited you were when you got to go do an exercise program with Arnold Swartzanegger in elementary school. Fun stuff.

Natelli Johnston said...

oh my word, that is soooooooooo cool! I actually watched that show this time and recognize all of those guys, you should be at that show!

Robyn said...

OH MY GOSH!!!! I LOVE SO YOU THINK YOU CAN DANCE! I would've been WAY too scared to ask for a picture...I'm so glad you got one. That's crazy! You kind of remind me of Kerrington.

Brittnie or "Bert" said...

That's way cool, you have such good luck. I love all those guys. I agree with Robyn, you do remind me of Kerrington. Awesome!!!!!!
Hey tell Krista hi for me, K.

Laura- I'm laughing hysterically right now!! (Partly because it's 10:30 and I am DEAD tired!! And also because I can just vividly picture in my mind what you were doing and thinking!) Also I didn't know you did an exercise program with Arnold Swartzanegger. That too is hilarious!! I can only imagine if it had been someone from the cast of FRIENDS (especially Jennifer Aniston!) I think you'd pass out. Not even kidding. Anyways- glad you saw them and got up the nerve to get a picture!! Love ya!!

No way. That is FABULOUS! I can't believe you saw them. Are they here for their tour? Good job getting up the nerve

I am so jealous! I only found out about the tour 3 days ago from the newspaper. What gets me even more is: Kevin was there!!! Yeah. So he casually tells me that he's doing an overtime shift at USANA for some band, so he won't be home until 11 or so. Then, he calls me at 9:30 and it goes something like this: "Hey hon. So, it turns out that I'm at the So You Think You Can Dance concert." stunned silence."I was surprised that you didn't know about it or have tickets." I'll post more on my blog about it. But I couldn't believe it. SO mad. Though, I'm glad that you got to take your picture with them. Joshua is such a hottie!!

Dan & Melissa said...

Thanks for being such a good friend. I'm still working on a thank-you gift;)
