I have been wanting to meet this lady for like FOREVER! She is seriously one of the funniest women ever and I get her! I get her humor. We have some similarities in personality and background, and sometimes I read her stuff and think, this is my sister! The sister I never knew about!
I got to the reception Friday night and texted her to make sure she was coming. She gave me some lame A excuse about her kid puking and the other one at football or something like that. I was pissed. She BETTER come! I even re-applied liptick and cleaned up a bit just to meet her. I think I guilted her into showing up.
Scene 1 - Out of the corner of my eye, I catch a flash of red hair, and wonder if it's her, but am engaged in a convo at the table and don't want to be rude and jump up and race over to her.
As I am sitting there, I hear a voice behind me say, "Are you M-Cat?" I turn and if it isn't Bud!!! Chief's oldest spawn! Right there in the freakin flesh! I jumped up and, as he put it, my eyes lit up like a Christmas tree! I even made the poor kid let me hug him!!
Scene 2 - I grab my camera and prolly left the convo mid sentence without even excusing myself from the table and
Did I mention, I got to meet Chief???
Yeah - I really got to meet Chief!!
She's everything I imagined her to be! Sassy, spunky, funny as all crap, and easy to talk to and be around!
All three of us.
Our best model poses. Bud wins for being the best model
And with Justin - the catalyst for our meeting IRL
I soon got the idea, that Chief isn't the touchy, feely, gimme a big ole hug type. See how much space she created between us? I'm sure she went home thinking that M-Cat is bat shiz crazy with her wanting to hug and all that crap!
The sweetest part of the night?
When Bud asked his Mom to dance......
Pretty sure that I could adopt that boy and be perfectly happy! He is sweetheart and a cutie-patootie!
Meeting Chief was so much fun. Next time, I would like a lunch date. I promise no hugging or acting like a start struck teenager again! It's just that she is one of my blogging idols and I got carried away in the moment.
I can now check off my list - make arse of myself at a wedding in front of virtual strangers.
And if you are NOT already reading and following Chief, you should. You are SO missing out!
Love ya girl! And your little Bud too!
