mormon celebrities

sheri dew and wendy nelson (elder nelson's wife) checked into the hotel today. i was totally star struck. she started to tell me her last name for her reservation and i nervously said something like "i know who you are..." and she said "well, don't hold it against me!" i sort of wanted to hug her. i mean, have you read "go forward with faith" ? i didn't hug her, but i gave her some water bottles for free. she kept saying my first name and asked me all sorts of questions about my life, she's cute and sassy. wendy (yes, we're on a first name basis) was in the car calling her husband- as in the apostle- her husband... no big deal.

we're practically bff's now, me and sheri.

being star struck is so weird. but it totally happens, and i love it especially when it's mormons bc then you're high on giddy spirit as well.

that is awesome. one time i sat right behind president hinckley in a youth fireside on the stage.
it was a way round about way of providing us a seat in a crowded arena.)

after the fireside was over, my friend and i jumped up and shook his hand. he was the sweetest man and you could just feel his spirit. :)

I'm used to getting notices when you post and I don't with your new blog. It makes me miss so many of your posts before I remember that I have to check for myself. Maybe I'll just have to start checking every day and really sink my teeth into a nice healthy blog stalker role. :) I always love what you have to say. It makes me giggle, it makes me holler out in agreement, it makes me tear up and sniffle...you're perfect!
