Crazy stalker fans

So last night, I could have easily qualified for a stalker. I went to PW’s book signing in Oklahoma City with my friend Kaci (another crazy fan who you can see more of on my photography blog).

me and kaci for web (can you tell I’m just a tad bit excited!?!? – so pathetic!)

We weren’t alone though. There were hundreds and hundreds of people there all to see Ree (I can call her that now…we bonded). I even got to see one of my old college buddies, who appears regularly on my blog during Flashback Fridays, Mandy.Mandy and Melinda for web

We saw Ree’s punks; and the girls even came around to sign the cookbooks.the punks for web

And I even got a couple of seriously creepy stalker photos of Marlboro Man (me being the stalker, not Marlboro Man).Marlboro Man for web 

And so, after waiting in line for three hours, it was my turn! Of course, as my luck would have it, my camera malfunctioned, aka – it ran out of batteries because I’d been taking too many pictures.PW and MDO Hal Party 231 But eventually I got it to where we could at least get a few photos, in focus or not.Me and PW cropped for web 

And somehow, during this fiasco with the camera, Ree and I started to mess with our hair and then we got on the subject of our annoying cowlicks.annoying cowlicks 

We sympathized with one another, we felt each other’s pain, and like I said earlier, we bonded. edited for web

LOL!! I posted about meeting her today too!!

Cute post Melinda! I'm sure it was just as crazy as it was in Tulsa!

I totally was going to take a picture of her autograph in my book but got bored after photo-editing a bunch of pictures that I decided against it! Ha!

I can't wait to start cooking some of those recipes!

Ooooh, so jealous!! Her book signing in Atlanta is in December, and I'm going to have to skip my Bible study (um...that I help to lead) to go to it, and I'm seriously thinking about it.

Can't wait to get my hands on that book!!

OK I am DYING that your camera was out of batteries when you finally got to Ree! HILARIOUS!

I think I need to come to Oklahoma because clearly, all the coolest bloggers in the world are there!

Her kids are so cute.

You are so pretty.

The end!
