practically famous

Though my time could be spent engaging in other worthwhile activities, I must admit that I enjoy perusing the occasional  trashy celeb. magazine.  There is something fascinating about the rich and famous.  Plus, who isn't a sucker for gossip?   And what better gossip to be interested in than that of a perfect stranger?  Better than your own friends, right?

On the other hand, I am pretty oblivious when it comes to celebrity sightings.  Once I walked right by Cuba Gooding Jr. at the beach.  I heard Troy say, "Hi Cuba" and my response to him was..."Who's that honey?  A friend from work?"

I'm pretty convinced I could be sitting next to Jennifer Aniston on a plane and it would take me a couple hours to figure out where I knew her from (or is that supposed to grammatically read...from where I knew her?)  

My point of this is....well, I don't know what my point is.  All I'm saying is that I'm a little bit starstruck.  I get all giddy inside if we ever see someone famous...even if it is only Geena Davis at Disneyland.  But rarely do I have a star sighting....that I know of.

Now this girl on the other hand, seems to have Hollywood pixie dust sprinkled all over her.  I'm not kidding...everywhere she goes she "runs into" someone famous!  Justin Timberlake, the entire American Idol judge panel, Ryan Seacrest, bon Jovi, David Archuleta, and many many more.  It is so appropriate that her blog (sadly private) is titled US daily.  You should get your subscription NOW!




Well, Summer and I met about 4 years ago on our first Sunday in Orange County.  She and her husband were the first to greet us at church.  Turned out that we were attending the wrong ward, so we never really saw them again, but common friends have kept us linked.  Last weekend, I took some pictures for them and it was a blast!  

For a sneak preview click HERE.  It is only a sneak preview because she wants to save the family pictures for their Christmas card.  It's KILLING me to not post them...they are beautiful! 

So, if I never meet anyone famous, at least I can say I know Summer and she knows a lot of famous people!

I'm laughing how pathetic I am that I tuned right in to this blog post when I saw the word celebrity! I must admit that I am a little bit of a celeb stalker. And I must also admit that I can spot one from a mile away. I think I am just now starting to realize that they are normal people. Just really really RICH! Ha...

P.S. I have a Britney Spears double chin in this picture. Gotta love it.... I need to start embracing my 30's.

Oh Ali!!! I love the Cuba Gooding Jr. story! I am also a celebrity junkie. I made a new years resolution last year not to buy any of those magazines or watch entertainment tonight etc. Let me just say that this year could not end soon enough!! Those pictures of Summer and her family are gorgeous! What a beautiful family!!

I hate the tabloid and celebrity focus in our society but it's one of my guilty pleasures I will secretly look at when nobody else is watching.
;) I look forward to my optometrist visits to catch up on Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie.
