Celebrity Encounters!

Kristina at Pulsipher Predilections (make sure to stop by and visit her fantastic blog!) asked me about the famous person I met from my Have You Ever post. I've actually met quite a few well known celebrities and had some very fun celeb encounters that even resulted in my extremely short lived paparazzi career. I just decided that I will soon make my celebrity encounters a regular feature on my blog, so stay tuned to hear the inside scoop!
