Yesterday we were so excited to go the the Mall of America (MOA) – partly to do school clothes shopping (which, by the way, is a definite FAIL at MOA on a Saturday afternoon….), but mostly because Demi Lovato was going to be there signing autographs!
Our nanny, ecbaby, had found that little tidbit of info online and passed it on to Peaches. They forgot to look into the fine print, though, and at 10:00am I discovered (to my horror), that you had to have been in line, with your brand new Demi Lovato CD in hand, at 7:00am that morning to get wristbands in order to stand in line for autographs from 1:00pm-2:30pm. AUGH!
Well, disappointed as Peaches was, we went anyway, and were able to get a pretty good look at Ms. Lovato from the second floor overlooking the rotunda where she was. (A sort of bemused and half-dejected Jordan Pruitt was sitting all alone at the next table, where some girls even passed her by for autographs because they were so busy gazing at the sig they had just gotten from Demi).
My camera, sadly, stinks. So what we had when we got home were 48 fuzzy pics of Demi and Jordan. AUGH again!
Peaches’ take on the experience: Really disappointed that we hadn’t known about the wristband thing (I mean really, who knew?), but still thrilled to have at least glimpsed them. Her quote of the day, made after we walked away from the second floor railing: ”Really Mom, if the floor had been closer to the ceiling, or the ceiling had been closer to the floor, I would’ve jumped down there!” I love that Peach. She’s always thinkin’.
Peach is determined that next time one of her favorite celebs is in town, we will be there at 5:00am, to wait for the 7:00am wristbands, to get in line for the 1:00pm signing. Right, Peach. Right.
