The Best Day!

I had the best day today and couldn't wait to get it down for my blog.  This way, when I'm having a bad day, I can refer back to today.

First, my sister and I drove to Independence High School for a book signing by one of my absolute FAVorITe authors - Meg Cabot!  Have you read her books?  I discovered her books through Kelly Ripa's reading list of all things.smile  So we went; I showed some restraint and only took three and bought one book for Meg (cause we're on a first name basis now) to sign.

Her talk before signing was hysterical!  She is just as witty and cleverly funny as I would expect and sounds exactly like many of her characters (naturally!).  She was so sweet to answer questions from young girls about her craft and her characters.
I know it's hard to tell, but this was a slide in Meg's presentation.  It shows her book covers from other countries.

Then she graciously stayed and signed books until every person there got her books signed.  My sister and I waited in the line for more than an hour, and we weren't at the end of the line!  I know it's dorky, but I felt bad that she was sitting there for so long so we didn't take pictures with her and slow her down more.  But we did take pictures of her signing our books.  BTW, she's left handed - just like me!

My books she signed.  When I told her I reviewed the last two, she added hearts to the signatures!
When we finally got through the line, we raced off to a graduation party for one of my friend's daughters.  My brother-in-law brought my nieces, and we had a blast!  Taco Bar, Chocolate Fountain, Homemade Cookies - de-li-cious!  (Yes, it's all about the food...)

All in all a great vacation from school planning, tutoring, laundry and all those other mundane things!  Happy Saturday, everyone!
