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!

    Surprise! Getting to know YOU this week! You are too funny! Just what I needed tonight. ๐Ÿ™‚ I enjoyed my visit so much and I know my other Dancing Barefoot chums will too. You are quite a lady.
    Have (more) fun “helmet head”! Oh My Goodness! I couldn’t resist! And I told my chums NOT to say that to you! ha ha ha! By the way, I think your hair looked cute. I couldn’t tell it was stiff – looked perfectly soft and bouncy.

    Just came by from Lynette’s blog. I have to tell you that I think your hair would look just like Lauren Conrad’s if you grew your bangs out. I did like how your hair looked on the fox news clip. Anyway you’re very funny and courageous in speaking your truth and I plan to keep checking in here.

    Just stopping in from Lynnette’s blog. Will be lloking around, so don’t be surprised if you have a random fish commenting on your blog.

    Lynnette sent me, and I have to say I’ve truly enjoyed reading your blog this evening. I like your style and your thoughts. The segments on your local show were fun. How cool is that?
    I’ve printed out the recipe for those cinnamon cookies (that’s my husband’s favorite flavor of all time), and plan to make those soon. I was a cupcake maniac for Valentine’s Day, so we still have some frosting ingredients in the house. Yum!
    Thanks for sharing your life and those amazing pics of your kids. Those blue eyes are gorgeous!

  • Tina says:

    I am a Minnesotan!!
    One time I was at s fabric store and ran into a Care 11 news person and babbled a bunch of goofy things because I was so exited. I think I was a few feet behind Prince once too but I am not totaly sure about that. Those were my two brushes with fame. Ok not including Casey Jones when I was little.
    I enjoy your blog!

    Here from Lynnette’s! Yeah, I don’t know her but that’s pretty cool how you got to do the show.

  • says:

    You look beautiful! And I love that green necklace you’re wearing.
    I think it’d be more interesting meeting politicians than other celebrities, simply because I pay far more attention to politics than Hollywood and sports. Although, I freely admit to not wanting to meet particular politicians because I want to punch them in the face.
    But, hey, you’re a celebrity now! You’ve been on TV!
