Hangin' with the famous people

finerthings Remember my post about Art Prize on Tuesday? Well tonight the top ten were announced. And because of a work connection via the hubby we got to go to a party to celebrate. It was a really cool party that was about to turn AWESOME.

The hubby and I are standing around in a sea of people and in walks John Ondrasik. What? You don’t know who that is? Does Five For Fighting ring a bell? We love him. In fact I even blogged about him a while back in case you think I am not a true fan. Well my hubby is an even bigger fan and so he gets brave and goes over to introduce himself.

John (as his close friends like us like to call him) was really gracious when we obnoxiously told him what big fans we are. He even introduced us to his wife. And then excused himself because apparently he had to go, you know, play a show. So of course we ran into the room he was playing in and got seats right in the front. WOOT!!

The place filled up fast and we happened to be sitting at a table with extra chairs so who sits down next to us? His wife. And some local celebrities. AND US. He played Superman and 100 Years, our two favorite songs. Then we chatted with his wife for awhile. Then we chatted with him for awhile. Now we are all besties.

fiveforfightingSeriously, I am an even bigger fan now. It is so nice to meet a celebrity and find them to be totally down to earth. I’m sure people think that after meeting me, uber blogging celebrity, as well……
