Friday, My Birthday and a Little Starstruck-Part 1

Friday morning, while waiting to enter the show, I made a new 'friend'. Somehow (it is a long story...for another time!) Mark Montano picked me out in the crowd and he never forgot me. I ended up seeing him many times during the day. He always remembered me and remembered it was my Birthday (all day!) He kept me laughing every time. He was very entertaining and sorry to say, I did not know who he was (at the time). I now know that he is on TLC's "While You Were Out".

The first celeb that I met, once inside, was the fabulous (and absolutely gorgeous!) Heidi Swapp:

I then ran into The Gretchen McElveen (she is a former Junkitz DT member and a fellow Nascar fan). You can find her here and here. Loved meeting her! She is so sweet!

Next, I had to go see Tim Holtz . He is so amazing and upbeat. I have seen him quite a bit lately. I hope he doesn't think that I am stalking him...? LOL!!

I also ran into the Fabulous Stephanie from "Home and Heart" Magazine. She is so artistic and adorable:

Yes, this is only the beginning. I will share more with you tomorrow. Have a pleasant evening. :-)
