Jennifer and I wake up today knowing that we are going to meet at least 1 of the twilight actors. Can you say squeal. Not only that we are heading to the Sheraton today as well. All in all we are feeling better about almost dieing the day before. Jenn and I pack and leave first thing in the morning. We don't want to be late for the signing to meet Jackson and his band. We are not sure how long the line will be so we decide to look for the location then find some food then head back to the location. Traffic was still bad but with just a couple of wrong turns we are able to find the place we need to be. At this point we are feeling as if our luck is changing. As our stomachs begin to growl we set out in search of food. Afraid of getting lost again we decide to just stop at a Safeway to grab food. We both got a sandwich some chips and a drink. We had breakfast/lunch in the car. As soon as we finished our meal we left to go back to the signing.
We find parking at a local park and walk about 2 blocks up to the building. For the life of me I can't remember what the name of the building is now grrr. This will teach me to wait this long to tell a story. Anyway I hope my pal Jenn remembers. Jennifer and I are on cloud nine making our way up to find the line. We are happy to see that the line is not so long as we are some of the first people to arrive. (SCORE) Before long two girls join us in line. Little did we know at the time but these two girls would become great friends of ours and we would share a few adventures in Vancouver together. Sophia and Julia are amazing and we pass the hours talking with them while waiting. We waited in line for about 2 hours before we hear the words we have been waiting for (It's Time).
I am bouncing up and down I can barely control myself at this point. Some other girls behind me are grabbing onto me they are so excited. It was really great to be with other people who were just as crazy as Jenn and I. We are told that we will be going in groups of 4 to 6. This was great because we knew we would get to share this experience with our new friends Sophia and Julia. By this time we have talked with these girls so much that we have traded phone numbers so that we can keep in touch. Ok back to what you really want to know about Jackson Rathbone !! We make our way up to him and he is looking all handsome and I swear my heart almost skipped a beat. I want to take pictures but my hand is shaking so bad. Jennifer leans into me and tells me she is not able to take pictures cause she is just speechless. I pull myself together get a couple of pics and manage to get out a few words to Jackson. He is so polite and sweet. I will post some of our pictures here for you. Anyway he is great and in my opinion meeting him made our trip well worth it.
Much more to come soon .....
