Almost Famous

Oh, I'm sorry. Did you think you were my best friend? Well, you're not. Not anymore at least. Hope you don't mind, but I am demoting you to back-up auxiliary friend. Your replacement:



CHELSEA HIGHTOWER from SO YOU THINK YOU CAN DANCE.

I call her Chels. But only I can call her that because she's MY best friend. Yup, we're peas and carrots, me and Chels.

...okay, so I lied. Chelsea didn't know me before tonight. In fact, she may even be currently filing a restraining order against me.

Earlier today I heard that she (along with Gev and Matt) would be performing at the Scera Shell in Provo. I immediately bought tickets. Then, right before the show, I saw her. And since I've had a crush on her since day one of SYTYCD, I had to get my picture with her.

Even though I felt a little afraid, I leaped from my seat and plowed down the aisle--knocking a little girl's popcorn all over the ground--but not looking back lest I miss my opportunity (Ryan stopped and apologized for me and offered to buy the girl a new popcorn). I waited amongst a throng of fans and finally pushed myself to the front. I grabbed Chelsea by her itsy-bitsy waist and grinned wildly at the camera. Ryan took a picture. Then, I preceded to tell her that I loved her and that she was my favorite and that she should be my best friend and that she should be my babies' godmother.

She said thanks.

Ryan and I went back to our seats and I asked Ryan if he thought I did a good job and if he thought Chelsea liked me. He just smiled.

Here's also a picture of me and Matt. I feel so happy.




And this is GEV!!!! Notice how his torso seems to be a little backwards. He's THAT good.


And this is the love of my life, Ryan. I will repay him for taking me to this dance show by watching three UFC tournaments with him and drinking lots of Dr. Pepper.. Thanks Babe!

Dana said...

I'm so glad you posted that already! I was dying to see the pictures! I'm excited for you to move up here next week! Let me know what I can do to help!

I saw that you had CJane's blog! Do you know her, or did you meet her via blogging? I happened upon her blog through my cousin and I have been so addicted. I can't get over the plane crash that her sister was in! I bought a bracelet from her sister's etsy blog. I've been praying every night for them.

I hope you're doing well in Provo. Jan Meyer's last Sunday was today before her and her husband leave for the West Indies Mission. We miss you guys. Give Doug and Kiana a hug for me!

Heather and Trevor said...

Holy Cow! So happy for you and jealous too! Love that! I am glad that you got to meet her! Good luck on the move too! :)

Chris and Tara Mason said...

Ok - the popcorn part totally made me laugh! It's a good thing you had Ryan there to clean up the situation!

Jer and Jealin said...

You're hilarious. Your teeth look especially fabulous in that first pic! I can't wait to meet you in real life! Good luck on the move. If I were closer I would be there to help ya in a heart beat.

Laura... and the boys said...

I can't help but laugh at your excitement... then I realize that if my BEST FRIENDS from my favorite shows were within reach, I'd be doing that EXACT same thing! In fact, I did it so I could meet Dierks Bently. I pushed all the little teeny boppers away, hid my big shiny wedding ring, I'm pretty sure embarrased my husband a little bit, but it was worth it!

You've always been famous to me!!! I love the last pic of you and Ryan! :)

Chelsea's so lucky to get her photo op with you! I'm really jealous - yes, I am a SYTYCD fan.
