My “Famous” Encounter *UPDATED*

filed under: Miscellaneous on February 22, 2010

I use that word loosely, because most people don''t think of politicians as famous.  I however, dont get out much.

Most folks who know me IRL know where I stand with politics. 

Well, most folks who don't know me IRL know where I stand with politics. 

But it seems, for some odd reason, that I only find myself meeting the folks who I have…uh… maybe not supported in the past.

I would be remiss if I didn't mention, this representative was entirely gracious and kind.

For anyone who doesn't live in Minnesota or North Dakota, this is probably not going to mean anything to you.  My apologies.


This is me and Minnesota State Senator Amy Klobuchar.

I got to meet her Sunday morning when I did my little baking segment.

Here is a link if you would like to watch.

Meeting Tom Halden was so fun… he had me doubled over laughing out loud.

Although, that might have been as direct result of the sugar rush he got by eating the sweetest dessert known to mankind at 9:45 in the morning.

Just sayin.


I am just so grateful that they gave me an opportunity to do this.   Thank you!

    Hello Amanda!
    Stopping by from Lynnette’s (though I’ve been here before!)!
    Your hair in the last post looks adorable!! It may have felt ick..but it looks wonderful!
    Also, I made the rainbow cake. That’s quite the undertaking, isn’t it?

    I also am visiting from Lynnette Kraft
    Dancing Barefoot on Weathered Ground!
    First time visitor and I have to say I read your list of 100 things about you (great idea, I think those are fun) but the connection was there when I read #13. I am a freak about “unattached hair” yuck! I inspect hotel beds, towls, etc with great caution!!

  • Allison says:

    How much fun!!! You’re a celebrity – helmet hair and all! (actually it didn’t look like helmet hair).
    Popping over from Lynnette’s blog to say HI! I can’t wait to read the rest of your stuff.
    Many blessings,
