Here we are at the Indianapolis Home Show yesterday. Bryan and I went with our friend Lindsay and got to see Kate Gosselin from our favorite TV show! We were so excited!
At first we were very disappointed. They grossly underestimated the amount of people who would be there, and therefore there wasn't enough room for everyone to see her. We went to the 3:00 show and they said people had been saving seats since 11:00 that morning. As soon as her talk was over, people were sitting down to save seats for the 7:00 pm show! We were lucky enough to be able to stand within viewing range, but we couldn't hear a thing she said. However, when I did hear bits and pieces she seemed to just be talking about what it said in the book, and I've already read all that so whatever. Then, they said she would be signing books for one hour. Well, the line was already a mile long, so we were pretty bummed and knew we had wasted our money on coming. We walked around the home show for about 20 minutes and then heard a cheer. (They said there would be a 5 minute break before she started signing books) Well, apparently there was a 20 minute break! We went over to see where the line actually began and got the shot below! We were so close yet so far. Then, we saw our friend Nicole in line! I was so jealous.
In the end, the line went really quickly and as you can see below, we were able to jump in at the end and meet Kate and get our book signed!!! I was so excited. I had been preparing what I was going to say to her, but I was all nervous anyway.
I said "Hi Kate! I coupon and stockpile just like you!" and she said "That's a great way to save money!" and then she looked up to hand us the book and looked at Hadley and said "Oh, she is beautiful!!!" I was thrilled and ran off to share my joy with our friends Lindsay and Nicole who were also giddy! It was such a fun day and I'm so glad we had the opportunity to see her!
