We are having a nice semi-Spring day. Wren and I ran errands, picked up fabrics, dropped off furniture for shipping, a typical day. But last night was definitely not typical! We were enjoying a relaxing dinner with the whole family at our favorite local restaurant since it was nice and close to home. When I look up, and who walks in but Hilary Duff! In a really quiet, but hysterical voice I started whispering "IT'S HILARY!!!! IT'S HILARY!!!!" (yes, I am an admitted 26 year old fan of Hilary... and yes I do have her CD's, and OK! I will confess to singing at the top of my lungs to them while driving). Of course nobody knew what I was trying to say, and nobody else in the restaurant even noticed.... and before I knew it I see my sister chasing after Wren right towards her! She is unbelievably tiny in person and at least 100 times prettier. And let me just say, she knows a cute baby when she sees one.

Wren brushed past her leg, Hilary looks down and says "What a cutie!" and that was how Wren's first celebrity encounter ended.

Now take a peek at our fairly mediocre encounter with beadboard and drywall....

Have a great Friday everyone!

So exciting to see a celebrity. I found out she is here with Mike Comrie from the Oilers. Pictures of her at the airport can be found here.

Great video and I can't wait to see what you will do in your laundry room.

Ahh, great work carebear! She was wearing that sleeveless jacket, but wasn't wearing jeans. I think she was wearing shorts or pantaloons over leggings at dinner, and she had her hair up. But the giant sleeve-less fur hood thing was the first thing I noticed, totally not something I would see many locals wearing on a cold day LOL.

Loved the video, you are so cute! It's exciting to see your laundry room come together. Pleeeease get your DH to wear some protective goggles when working with that nail gun, I'd hate for him to lose an eye! Thanks for your great blog, it's so inspiring.

Oh my! Wren has already seen more famous celebrities than I have!

That's such a cute story. I'm sure Wren will love to hear it when she's older!

Hi Holly! Great job. I've actually condsidered the beadboard for my laundry room, however our furnace and HVAC Unit is in there as well, therefore there are some pipes that go into the ceiling. I wonder if I'd be able to cut around them without having it looked too pieced together...

I can't believe you saw Hilary Duff! Hilarious. Was Comrie with her? I'm super curious to know what restaurant you were at! I'm not surprised she commented on Wren's cuteness - not even celebs are immune to her powers of adorableness!! Love the video too. Have a fabulous weekend!
