My 15 minutes.

I was one of the crazy shoppers out on Black Friday ... Not at 3:00 or 4:00 am though. It was at a very reasonable hour like 5:00 pm. (Okay, truth be told, Sophie and I did go out to the mall at about 11:00 pm on Thanksgiving day, but we were home in bed by about 2 am. The real crazies actually come out during the wee morning hours and are usually after electronic items like t.v.s, dvd players or X-Box items. We just wanted deals on clothes. Of course most of what we ended up getting was NOT on sale - but hey, we did check some items off of the Christmas wish list.)

Later on that day, Sophie, McCall, baby Libby, and I decided we needed another mall outing to get out of the house and go visit Chloe who was working at a little boutique called "Aerie." They are the equivalent of Gap Body to Gap for American Eagle, if that makes any sense. They sell "unmentionables" for girls and Sophie needed some "unmentionables", so there we were.

I noticed a really cute gal in the store who seemed to be watching us and I thought maybe she thought she knew me.

She eventually did come over and approach me and said, "This is going to sound really strange, but I stumbled upon your blog awhile ago ....."

Say WHAT? Someone is recognizing me from my BLOG? Could this be my 15 minutes of fame that I have longed for since I was but a girl who wanted to be an actress and then a talk show host and then a writer?????

Her name is Jenny, a fellow single mom and blogger. She was absolutely darling and totally made my day! Maybe my month ... or maybe even a longer period of time than that.

So this post is my SHOUT OUT to Jenny - to let her know that I thought that was really, really cool.

She recognized me ... really. What?

Wow. Fun. Especially for me.

HUH, Delanie?
