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!

  5. 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!
