Just now getting around to posting this, but last Saturday, I met Ian Somerhalder ("Damon Salvatore") and Candice Accola ("Caroline Forbes") of The Vampire Diaries at Hot Topic in Frisco.  There was probably over 500 people there and I was within the first 250.  Waited in line about an hour and a half. 

Ian and Candice signed posters and then did a Q&A downstairs.  When Ian signed my poster, he said, "Look at that, she's holding his hand.  Damon just can't get any love."  He was referring to Elena and Stefan holding hands in the poster.  I just laughed because I didn't know what to say!  His eyes are even prettier in person.  Candice just said, "Hi" and "How are you?"  They both seemed like really nice people.

Before the Q&A, Sounds Under Radio, as heard on The Vampire Diaries soundtrack (released yesterday!), played a few of their songs.  Got to meet them and have my picture taken with them afterward, which was cool.

Mia on Monday - Helping with the Laundry

I had some wash cloths folded on the couch Friday morning and was about to do the towels when Mia jumped up there, knocked the wash cloths over and weasled her way under the blue towel.  Couldn't resist a picture of my little helper.

Fun with Food

My lunch from yesterday afternoon.  A good friend recommended Five Guys to me, and I finally took the opportunity to stop in there and try it out.  One word, yum!  Undoubtedly the best burger (and fries) I've had; all of their toppings fresh and delicious.  I got mine with mustard, pickles, tomatoes and grilled mushrooms.  My mouth is watering again just thinking about it!  Their menu also offers hot dogs and sandwiches. 

You can scoop some peanuts (in the shell) when you walk in and have them as an appetizer.

Love the classic rock that was playing, too.  Fun atmosphere.
A return visit is in my near future.
