.quick catch-up and a Carrie sighting.

hello all.

and how was your weekend?

mine was swell.

spent it in my home sweet home.  Nashville.

My grandmother was recently diagnosed with cancer and was having surgery so I went in to see her and catch up with family that I haven't seen in a while.  She not only did perfectly through surgery, but she also accepted Christ, which is just so amazing!  It was a quick trip, but other than Kings getting sick, it was perfect.  I just love Nash.  I miss it so much and would love to be back there one day, but I doubt that will happen since Brandon loves the ocean and mountains.  


Something fantastic happened yesterday.  Something that made my day.  Something that was life changing.

ok.  that last statement mayyyy have been a bit dramatic.

Ms. Carrie Marie Fisher, a.k.a. Carrie Underwood, smiled at me in the airport.  No joke folks.  I was listening to my Carrie playlist all day while getting ready to go, I drove by her salon twice the day before hoping and praying that maybe I could just catch a glimpse, and I thought to myself..."wouldn't it be grand to see her in the airport?"  Of course.  I never thought this would happen.  

I did see Heather McDonald from Chelsea Lately in the airport.  She did not smile.  She is not as exciting.  She is no Carrie.  

After going through security I had lost all hope of a Carrie sighting.  There's always next time right?  But...as my girl and I were strolling down to gate C-9, there she was!  She looked at Kings and smiled.  Then she looked up at me and smiled!  My heart may or may not have skipped at beat.  Just a mili-second of a beat.

at least I didn't audibly gasp out loud when she walked by like I did when I saw Keith Urban at Cracker once.

btw.  Keith is teeny.  I mean like a tiny little bean.  A cute tiny little bean, but a bean nonetheless.

Seeing her just made my day.  She is as cute and beautiful in person as she is one TV.  I have loved her since the day she won Idol.  Not only is she gorgeous, but she acts and dresses like a respectful, classy lady.  I wish there were more "Carrie" type celebrities today.  Girls that I wouldn't mind Kingsley looking up too.  A world with less Britney's and more Carrie's would be a great world indeed.  

Here are some fun facts about Carrie and I...just in case you were wanting to know.

1.  She was born in Oklahoma and I was in Texas.  These are neighboring states.

2.  Her middle name is Marie and so is mine.

fate?  i think so.

3.  She has blonde hair and I once had blonde hair.  She pulls it off a LOT better than I.

4.  She has dogs and I have dogs.

5.  She has a muscular husband and I have a muscular husband.

6. According to the newest People mag, she wears Nars Orgasm blush and I wear Nars Orgasm.

7.  Her new single is set to release on Feb. 23 and my oldest sons birthday is on Feb. 23.

8.  She was wearing hot pink jeans in the airport and the day before, I was at Green Hills Mall seriously contemplating the purchase of some 7 for all Mankind hot pink jeans.  I did not.  BUT, I did order some this morning.  though, they are not 7's.  I couldn't bring myself to spend $170 on such a trendy color, so I got mine from ASOS for $57.  cha-ching.

9.  Carrie flys Southwest and I fly Southwest.

I believe we are meant to be.

She is going to be in Baton Rouge for the Country Superfest and I'm about 99.99999% sure Brandon will let us go.  We'll call it a Mother's Day gift.

So now you know.  I love Carrie.  Always have.  Always will.

I live in Nashville and have always liked Carrie, but have grown luke warm on her recently. I understand that she may feel a lot of pressure when she goes out and maybe she would like to be left alone, but 4 separate friends on separate occassions have been snubbed by her. She seems like a bit of a diva. Just my opinion. I am glad that you had a good encounter with her, though!
