I only have a few things to say about last night. One of them is that I’m sorry I dragged my poor children to SLC on a school night to wait out in the cold in vain.
Another is that Ree remembered me and called me by name as she walked out the door. Life lesson: it’s likely someone of her caliber will know who you are if you make a big enough fool of yourself on first impression.
I won’t lie, there was bad behavior that made me feel a little sad, especially that Precocious was there to witness some of it firsthand.
The upside? Ree is fabulous, lovely, and of good report. She didn’t issue a restraining order so I think we’re still besties. And her beautiful, wonderful, gracious mother-in-law hung out in the back alley with me, Marie, Melissa, Carina, and my family for quite a while. She took my cold hands between her own and warmed them like only a mother would. Also? Missy is as beautiful and lovely in real life as she is onscreen.
Did I mention we hung out with Dooce for a little while? She’s so darn thin and pretty in real life, and she just had a baby for Pete’s Sake. Her assistant Katy was rocking the most foxy urban outfit I’ve seen in quite some time and I’ll pick it apart for resources later. She was also delightful to chat with, can’t wait to do it again.
p.s. The book is beautiful. Buy one for everyone you know for the holidays.
