The Host book signing with Stephanie Meyer

Yesterday I went up to Anderson's Bookshop in Naperville with my good friend Michelle to see the one and only Stephanie Meyer! Ok, it was only 10 seconds or so for her to sign my copies of Twilight and The Host, but I was face to face with her (she even talked to me!) 

Ok, to go back to 2008, I became a tad obsessed with the Twilight Saga. Not long before the first movie came out, I decided to read the book. I was hooked.  This led to me becoming a full-fledged Twilight Mom and attending conventions.  No joke. 

Fast forward to now and I am still a fan....just not like I was. However, I couldn't pass up the opportunity to meet the author of one of my favorite book series!  Plus, I wanted to see some of my TwiMom friends I hadn't seen for a couple of years. 

Michelle and I had planned to leave right after the kids went to school...but I ended up having to take Hailey to the doctor because her ear was still bothering her.  I didn't think we were going to be able to go but we got up to Naperville at the perfect time. We literally walked in and within 10 minutes were getting our books signed.

I think I said something along the lines of "I'm a big fan..thank you for coming".  I never know what to say.  I really wanted to ask her if she was ever going to finish Midnight Sun but I know she probably hates being asked that.  I also wanted to tell her to have Rob call me but I'm sure she's told that all the time LOL

So, even though it was pretty much over and done within a minute, I'm glad I went. 
Afterwards, we headed around the corner to Gioridano's to meets up with other TM's. 
I have been really looking forward to see my good friends Erin and Val from Iowa.  I attended three conventions with these ladies and love them to death.  We always seem to have so much fun together.  (Val keeps me and Erin in line..somewhat)

It was fun visiting and we decided we need a TM meet up without the convention and $300 Gold Ticket. 
Afterwards, Michelle and I went to Trader Joe's so she could shop. I should've taken a picture of her being so giddy and happy! She kept apologizing to me but I told her it is the same as me shopping in a scrapbook store! LOL  I also wanted to ask one of the employees if they had organic Diet Coke.
