In an ironic life twist, Vancouver was hit with a whole bunch of snow on the first day that I was feeling okay enough to get outside.  Apparently no one is getting Christmas gifts this year, because getting knocked out for an entire week just before the 25th isn't ideal shopping conditions.  Anyway, that night we decided to keep our double date with Vanessa and Tyler because it just involved dinner and then watching the boy's beer league hockey game in Burnaby.

So, Vanessa and I find the rink that the guys are playing on and there's just one other person watching at a table, so we park it at the table next to him, but far enough away so that we don't annoy him with our likely loud and definitely ultra girly convo.  As soon as we sat down though, it was like man oh man, that guy sure looks JUST like Taylor Kitsch.  It's hard to tell though because you know celebrities, all covered up in toques and sweaters trying to hide and blend in all at the same time.  Plus, my eyesight isn't all that great.  So then we sat there debating whether it was him or not, as I was feeling super giddy and Friday Night Lights fangirl.  Then a server asked him if he wanted another beer and as soon as I heard that deliciously smooth, deep Riggins-esque voice, I KNEW it was him!

I regret not going up to him, especially since Adam's brother ran into him at the Vancouver Airport last Christmas and was bragging for days about it.  It's like running into Taylor Kitsch is now part of our family holiday traditions.  I've never really met many celebrities, and I always feel shy about whether or not it's appropriate to strike up a conversation with them.

Have you ever had any celeb encounters?  What was your experience like?

  2. It's so cool meeting celebrities, I like to think to myself I'll go up to them but in real life I get too shy and think everyone annoys them by asking for photos and signatures so I probably should keep it cool and eventually regret it too! Beautiful outfit, love the red head band, such a nice touch!

    Kisses and Happy Holidays!

  5. That is such a funny story! I've seen a celebrity once or twice and have always been to shy to come up. I figure they probably don't want to get disturbed every 5 minutes by gawkers. haha. Anyway, love your look. The red turban is amazing!!
