Also lucky me because my buddy Crystal was in town from Alabama, so she was able to meet to meet up with me and Tameka for the signing. YAY!
I'm cracking up because Lauren posted this picture on her blog in an update about her signings.
You can see my shiny white hair in the front there (I came straight from the stylist that day, so my color was fresh and she gave me a conditioning treatment...I don't always have shampoo commercial hair) and I'm getting my phone ready to take a picture.
This picture, actually.
I took and deleted a bunch of pictures, so it really makes me laugh that the one that I kept for this post is the one that I got photographed taking. Tee hee.
Anyway, Lauren is awesome. I usually love the authors I meet, but Lauren is one who I couldn't help think that I would totally be friends with. She was so funny and fun, and I really enjoyed hearing her talk about her new book Liesl & Po. I can't wait to read it!
Me and Lauren, who was wearing some nice tall boots, so I didn't have to do my usual fold
I look hideous in this picture, but Tameka and Crystal look so cute I figured I would post it anyway.
It was funny because the three of us got asked a few times what we, three grown-ass women, were doing there for this signing. Not in those exact words, but the implication was definitely there. We let our YA flag fly and said we just love Lauren's books and love YA and are darn proud of it!
