Happy Friday, friends! We’re supposed to get some snow here this weekend and I’m anticipating some sugar cookie party-ing in the kitchen with the girls. The following Things I’ve Googled is kind of a silly one. Have you ever had an embarrassing celebrity encounter? Please share so I know I’m not alone! You can read all about mine below.

Brooke White – Let it Be
Remember Brooke from American Idol, Season 7? Was she your favorite too? So, Brooke was a speaker at Alt last week. I was in the bathroom having just finished washing my hands, and I turned around, and there was Brooke White. She said, “RACHEL!” And in my head I was like, OHMYGOD BROOKEWHITE KNOWS MY NAME. I said, “Hi!” and almost almost had an awkward fan girl moment. Then, the nice woman behind me said hi. I slowly turned around to see the gorgeous Reachel Bagley waving and said to myself, “Right.

Things I’ve Googled is an ongoing series and comes from one of the standard questions Jim and I ask each other when we get home. Often, it’s a good indicator of where our minds have wandered off to in the middle of the day and the topics usually make us laugh. So consider this part educational. Part oversharing. Part nonsense. Completely random.
