Star Struck

Being the little Iowa hay seed that I am, I haven't had the opportunity to meet too many 'celebrities' in my life, but today I had that chance....well, sorta.

Ok, to any other person on the street, he wouldn't be considered well known, but in the Christian music circuit, he's kind of a big deal. His name is Lincoln Brewster and turn your radio to any Christian station and you're sure to hear a few of his songs being played.

Lincoln heads up the worship ministry at Bayside Church in Granite Bay where I attend services and this afternoon they held a Halloween based theme called 'Trunk or Treat'. Basically, a bunch of people donated a half a million pieces of candy (sucks to be that person counting) and then others volunteered to decorate their cars and put candy in the trunk so kids could have a safe place to collect the goods. They had all sorts of games and jumpy houses for entertainment and a ton of food, which reminded me a bit of a midway at the fair... it was a good time!

Anyway, we were walking through the crowd and I spotted Lincoln and asked for a picture (sorry Todd, no autographs), which he kindly said yes to... deep down inside I was squealing like I did when I saw the New Kids On The Block in concert back in the day, but I think I played it off pretty well.

Here's me and my new BFF, Lincoln...

You are the cutest! I love that you did this. I recently worshiped with Swithfoot sitting in front of me at the church. I got to shake hands and chat a little but didn't get a pic. I kinda kick myself that I didn't but it was fun. See, West Coast living has some good benefits! hee hee.

I hate I have no idea who the guy may be. Isn't that awful. I don't listen to a lot of modern-day Christian genre music. I am glad you met a "giggle inside" celebrity for yourself though. Those are fun moments. Trunk or Treat is great, isn't it?
