Last Night...Me & NIENIE
WATCH VIDEO FIRST-
READ POST-LEAVE COMMENT-PLEASE
Yes, you heard me right...I was in the same room as this beautiful woman!!! I went to hear her speak at BYU, and I will be on cloud nine for a day or two, or more!!!
NieNie has been my inspiration since I met her, oh about a year ago. Well I haven't actually met her, but I stumbled on her blog last year and I have since been enthralled by her story. She is one of the main people that inspired me to start a blog. Yes I will be saying "inspired" a lot in this post- so hang on!
As we arrived at the Wilkinson Center, there were hundreds of other INSPIRED girls and women arriving too, I started to get anxious-maybe I could get a picture with her or maybe I could actually talk to her, wow the expectations were getting the best of me. We hurry and followed the crowd to the ballroom and I couldn't believe all the people, mostly INSPIRED women-but there were a few brave guys there too.
We thankfully found 2 chairs, about 1 mile away from the stage- but hey, it beats standing-like a lot of people had to do. We then ran to the food court because of course, we did not have time to have dinner.
WE grabbed a drink and some bugles (nutritious right?) and headed back to our seats. Don't tell R, but before we went to food court, I asked INSPIRED cute girl in the chair next to me to save our seats & I left my purse with my very nice camera on my chair (nerves, I tell ya) with cute girl-I am very trusting or crazzeee!!!
When NieNie stepped on the stage- everyone went wild and she was so amazed by the amount of people that she just cried and she continued to cry through the whole thing. SHE is the real deal I tell ya...very sweet and grateful for everything. Her hubby was by her side the whole time and some of her other family also. Anyhow- everything she said was energy for my heart, and I am so happy that I traveled 2 hours to see her. The reason she was asked to speak was to kick off a campaign for women entitled "Recapturing Beauty". I love that concept and I'm glad to hear they are finally going to teach girls and women that beauty is not your weight or size!!! I learned last night that only 2 % of women think that they are beautiful-SAD HUH??? Anyhow, after she spoke...we left...no pictures...no trying to fight my way to the stage...no talking to her...NOTHING. Can you believe that, I was so ( in a daze) that I couldn't function in my usual manner...What the ??? I guess I was star-struck, hahahaha!!!
Well that's it folks- A most eventful night with my most inspirational blogger, wish I could have acted normal! Maybe I would have captured a picture or two. Oh yeah, by the way the cute girl next to me, she took care of my purse and the camera and nothing was missing. Thanks cute girl!!! If you would like to follow her blog, it is nieniedialogues.com - Enjoy!!! You will love, love love it.
