Brush with fame game Monday!! Mitt Romney

Mitt Romney was in Phoenix last week promoting his new book, No Apology, the case for American Greatness. We got to Border's Bookstore at the Arizona Biltmore shopping Center at around 5 p.m., we thought for sure all the arm bands would be gone before we got there, but they still had alot left, we were given an orange one, so we were the 2nd group to get to meet him!!!!He was so nice and quite funny, he commented about my ring and I assumed he was talking about my new LARGE Fake ring, a pic of that to come soon, but he said "No I am talking about that other big stoned ring!!" He said" you must be well loved" and I said Yes I am!!!!haha

What are these things?????
Here is our good friend Krystal meeting Mitt!!!
And Krystal's Mom Judy is telling him about Joy Behar nearly chewing her finger nails off when he appeared on the VIEW!!! Joy was steaming and so nervous around him!!!
Waiting those 2 hours for him to appear!!!
He stood up on a chair so everyone could see him and more importantly hear him!!!!
We quite possible may have shaken the hand of the next President!!!!

I wouldn't mind meeting him myself. He looks pretty good in those jeans. LOL. Shame on me.

I can't believe how many people you meet! I need to get out more! Only very few celebrities come to Panama City!

Krystal said...

That was a fun night out. I am so sad today after that health bill pasted last night. What is America coming to? I forgot how we can get that free picture. You will have to let me know. How funny that he noticed your ring. See he is a good guy! Love your outfit that day! Looks like you guys had a busy fun weekend. I just loved MIss C outfit on St. P day! I have yet to take my kids on the train at the mall. Looks like fun. HOw cute in Miss C in her picture with the bunny?! KJ didn't want to go up to him this year. So be glad Miss C loved him. Maybe now that we've done Disney we will have to try to see if she will give the bunny another chance. Looks like Spring is ready at your house. Love all the flowers. This is just such a beautiful time of year!

I have to agree - you lead a heck of an interesting life - you do get around and have fun!

And you are well loved. I can tell.

Hi Jamie!
My little Junior Miss is lying down for her afternoon nap and I poured myself a rootbeer and thought I'd surf the net. I don't usually have a rtbeer this early in the day...Mitt Romney!!!

I would imagine his book is great. Perhaps you'll do a book review. I'd like to know your thoughts on his book.
Have a sweet week and God Bless,

Marydon Ford said...

I'd love to meet this wonderful Republican ... or any other for that matter. Glad y'all had a lovely time.

Happy spring!
Have a beautiful week.
TTFN ~ Hugs, Marydon

Oh, you lucky girl! I love Mitt Romney! I'm so glad you got to visit with him and hear him speak.
I can't tell you how much I LOOOOVE that photo, below, of Miss C and her mommy hugging (she has the yellow headband on). Priceless!!! : )

Deanna said...

Hey Jamie, I wrote a little about my old houses's history back in the comment section of that post.

Thank you for the kind comments. I so appreciate you!

Chatty Crone said...

Good Morning!

So you like Charleston S.C.? I've never been there, but now, you made is sound so nice, I want to visit.

I did read that Reese's Great, great, great grandfather signed the declaration of Independence.

We have a couple of stucco homes out this way too.

Camdyn is almost 2 - she is precious. At least she didn't cry when she said on his lap. These times are the best times. I know you are enjoying her so much.

Can't say I love to iron though.

Take care and will talk to you later.

Have a good day.

Cathy said...

Thank you to you and Sherry for all the planning!

Duchess of Tea said...

My darling Jamie or should I address you as Your Majesty (noticed the Queen of Household) how are you my friend. Princess Camdyn looks adorable in her little bonnet. God Bless her and keep her safe. I see another celebrity get together here, what is your secret darling, do share with me. Famous people that I can name that I have come across are Sir Elton John and Earl Spencer, Princess Diana's brother with whom I had afternoon tea with. One day when you and I meet, I will share with you my afternoon tea story and will show you my photos with the Earl. Sweetiw, wishing you and your family a blessed and happy spring season. Kiss Princess Camdyn for me and have fun with her.

Love & Hugs

Oh Jamie
please email me

You have no idea what a nerve you touched when you mentioned White Christmas on my blog.
White Christmas is a BIG DEAL .
My Aunt and Uncle had their first date to see this movie :)
My Uncle would tell us about it every year :)
A year later he proposed after they saw this movie and he was in the military so it was a big deal .
When I was younger we had family Christmas at their home for many years .
White Christmas came on Television every year and all of us cousins would pile up on the bed and all around in the floor to watch this movie and we all knew it by heart line by line !
the older ones had to keep the younger folks busy while waiting for Santa to arrive :)
My Daddy was the oldest of all his siblings and so he became the family Santa for a very long time.
My hubby and I and our own family enjoyed and quoted this movie amongst ourselves.
That is until one year hubby wanted a divorce in the middle of this movie ,I thought I would die of heart break as I really got blind sided .
Oh how I want to get past all the hurt and get back to the good this movie once invoked .
I have never told anyone what happened as this is such a sweet family treasure I did not want to take it away from anyone else.
However my heart always hurts when the movie comes on or family members start quoting it .
I have been praying to forget
the hurt and embrace the good
for a long time now
and when you mentioned it
on my blog it seemed like
a sign that God was at work :)
Please email me sweetie if you can .
Blessings of joy to you and yours !
Love and hugs from Texas
Happy Trails

Hi Jamie,
You sure get to meet a lot of interesting people! I have to say you sure look cute in that pic! I love all of your cute outfits! If you ever get back up to the Twin Cities area you will have to come stay with me! It's very nice in the summer. Have fun at the blogger luncheon on Saturday, I wish I could be there! Big Hugs,

zandra said...

Love the new blog background! Are you trying to get into the Guiness Book of World records??? for meeting the most famous people? LOL You crack me up how you always manage to meet someone famous, ;o)
Cannon camera's are the only ones that have that feature! Get your manuel out and check, I'm sure you can do it.
Hugz, Z

Liz said...

Hi ya! I got both books from Amazon. Used! So much cheaper. Any who! The Last Sin Eater is a Christian Book. The Soloist is not.....


Country Wings in Phoenix said...

Oh Jamie Girl...
You have been all over this town. I am telling you, I don't think anyone famous has rolled into town that you didn't know about and get to meet. I have just not been hanging out in the right places.

Cute pictures, looks like a lot of fun was had by all of you. How special.

Talk to you tonight. Love ya girl, Sherry

Charlotte said...

I should have gone. Thanks for sharing the pics and experience. I really like Mitt Romney.
See you Saturday.

Laura Ingalls Gunn said...

You are just a star magnet! :)

I recieved your wonderful card today. Thank you SO very much. It gave me the warm fuzzies.

Can't wait until Saturday!

Just A Mom (Call me JAM for short) said...

Is he as handsome in person and he seems on television?

linda said...

Sounds like a nice book signing. So funny that Mitt noticed your ring. Usually it's women that notice things like that!
