11/29 = A-m-a-z-i-n-g!

Amazing pretty much sums up November 29th, 2010. I'm sure you know that I already mentioned in a previous post that I was planning to go to Sarah Palin's book signing in LA. And obviously, I got my wish!!! Ha, I couldn't believe it ... Honestly. My luck actually went really well!! Oh, and may I add that I got to stay home from school that day? Yeah, so I guess that was pretty cool, too. :)
I was SO excited the whole day leading up to meeting her! The signing was THE only thing on my mind all freaking day. My dad was so sweet to actually get the wristband to the signing earlier that morning, so I could get to meet her! This is isn't fair to everyone else that waited forever to get a band that morning, but hey - I've known her since 2007, so I guess I shouldn't HAVE to wait. Okay, that's mean. Ha, nevermind. But if makes anyone feel better, I DID have to wait 2 1/2 hours before the signing started. I thought the line would be SO long when I got there, but it wasn't. My mom, her friend, and I were actually like # 45-47 in line.
Oh, Did you want to know how it went when I actually met her? Of course you did. ;) Well, it was great. Here's how it went (if I remember correctly):
Me: Hiiii!
(Shakes my hand)
Sarah: Hey! What's your name?
Me: I'm Demi.
Sarah: Demi, it's so nice to meet you!
Me: Can I give you a hug?
Sarah: Oh yeah, of course.
(Stands up, reaches across table, hugs me)
Sarah: Thanks so much for the support! Appreciate it!
Me: You're welcome. Thanks!
Sarah: You're so beautiful and so sweet! Have a great night!
Soooo, um, need I say more? Ha, I seriously had it ALL planned out what I was going to say, but when I actually went up to her, it just went out of my mind. Grrr! Asking for the hug was going to be the last thing. I wasn't intending to ask right away. After I left the table, she met my mom and I walked away (Not sure why?). Sarah said something about me, but I didn't catch it. Oh well. Yeah, it also doesn't help that my mom doesn't remember. Ahah.
I just wanted to share this amazing experience with you guys! :) And update my blog, it seems I've abandoned it. Ha!
