Happy Saturday All! Danica is off to BlogHerFood09 in San Francisco, so she left me in charge. She is sooooo excited! And of course, I’m excited too – COLLEGE FOOTBALL ALL DAY!!! No need to get out of my PJ’s. GO CALFORNIA GOLDEN BEARS!!!!
Awesome Wife ALERT!!! Danica had this Cal Bears Football Jersey made for me……
AND….this McFarlane Sports Figure made for me too!
Hmmmm BREAKFAST – donuts, HUGE bowl of cereal, Starbuck’s (Caramel Frapuccino w/whip)…..ok, I’ll be good and do it the “Danica” way…..Toast with fruit!
Instead of posting about lunch and dinner, I think I’d like to share a story with you.
On May 5, 2009, I got a text from Danica asking me if I wanted to go to see “The View” LIVE from their studio audience for their May 11th show. I was like WOW, I think they tape that in New York City – how are we going to get plane tickets to NYC within a week? So, I called her and she said I had it all mixed up. It’s “The View From The Bay” in San Francisco – oops LOL. It was just as exciting, but without the HUGE airfare. She wanted to go see Hungry-Girl Lisa Lillien. To be honest…..I wasn’t as interested in going but I wanted to support my wife.
After the show we went to the Macaroni Grill for an early dinner and then to the Hungry-Girl book signing in El Cerrito, Ca. There must have been 100 people at the book signing – 98 women, and 2 LOYAL husbands. While Lisa was having a Q&A session, Danica seemed to really know a lot of the answers to the questions. I was very impressed with her – I was like, WOW….my wife is a food guru or something. (I think that Lisa Lillien was a little impressed too.)
After the signing Danica talked to Lisa for a while and she gave Danica a bunch of items for a blog giveaway. I thought that was very nice. And here I thought I was just going to be tagging along, being a good husband on a wife’s torturous journey, kind of like a LONG shopping day.
But after this long day of Hungry-Girl mania, I must say it was well worth it to see my wife so excited and happy, I wouldn’t have missed a minute of it. Lisa aka Hungry-Girl, is fun, personable and friendly. In my book….rated A+ for Awesome! I think I am a fan now too.
Pre-game College Football is STARTING – gotta go! GO BEARS!!!
