i'm a winner

A huge thank you to those of you who voted for me. I did win the contest and got to meet the guys on St. Patrick's Day in South Carolina! My friend Janelle and I drove up and met my cousin. I was beside myself with excitement and I couldn't believe how calm I was while I was in the room with them. I am a huge crier and I just knew that I would probably fall apart in front of them. Shockingly, I didn't. I even managed to speak a little (another shocker...partly because I figured I would freeze up in front of them and partly because I had been without a voice for two days.) The whole thing went by really fast. Here is our group shot (you can click on it to enlarge it. You know you want to.)...
(That is me in the plaid.) The bodyguard would not let us take individual pictures. Which is sad because I was really looking forward to my photo op with Jon (he has been my favorite from the time I was eleven.) I did get a picture with Donnie because I met him outside earlier that afternoon...
When he approached me during the meet and greet he said, "Hey, you changed shirts didn't you?" Yep. Thanks for noticing Mr. Wahlberg. We had a great time and the show was awesome. And even though I didn't get my photo with Jon, I did get this great one of him during the show...
I look forward to them returning to Atlanta this summer. Yes people, I intend to enjoy every bit of this reunion!

Since I have been home I have been sick and not feeling much like sitting at the computer. Or sitting period, really. A severe cough can really take it out of you. I am so sore! Who knew that the part of your body where the back of your arm meets your back could get so sore from coughing?! I hope to get back into the swing of things soon. Have a great weekend!

ok, is there a way for you to go on the picture and put a little arrow to who is who in the group? i know, i'm lame, i have no idea who they are (let's just NOT say it's because i'm older than you so this was a bit past my hormonal stage back then...)

and also, you are absolutely glowing in that first picture. AWESOME! i'm so glad you got to meet them.

is it me, or do you think donnie looks like a complete dork in that sideways hat and glasses? marky mark is WAY more awesome (ok, so i do have a secret crush on the leader of the funky bunch hee hee).
