Celebrity Spotting

I know I haven't posted in weeks, but with the end of the year chaos and school work taking up all my time, I've barely even had time for myself let alone time to blog!

Finally, after a busy week of group project meetings and other boring appointments, I went with a few girls on my floor and my one other friend to meet Jill Zarin at Borders in Fairfield. Jill, Gloria and Lisa were all there to promote theie new book, Secrets of a Jewish Mother. I must admit, even though I'm not Jewish myself, I can't wait to read it. It seems hilarious and Gloria really had some wonderful advice to give to the audience about careers, relationships and following your dreams. Of course I was in the front row, and even went up to ask a question. I was literally 2 feet from Jill!

Of course when she walked in, I heard her before I actually spotted her. She was wearing a fabulous blue/green one shoulder dress that had a slight ruffle. I was SHOCKED to see how skinny she was in person, (the camera really must add 10 pounds). When I went up to meet her and take the above picture with her she had been eating a cookie and turned to me to ask, "do I have anything on my face?!?" She was EVERYTHING I thought she would be. Goes to show you that she really isn't acting on Real Housewives after all!
