Ohmygosh! Ohmygosh! Ohmygosh! I totally saw Drew Barrymore–live and in person yesterday–at a local cafe here in Anchorage!!
(I did not take this picture, but she did have a puffy jacket on and a stocking hat. She fit in quite well, and most people probably didn’t even realize who she was!)
Now, you’ll have to give me the benefit of the doubt because I’ve lived a sheltered life and honestly cannot think of any other celebrity I’ve seen randomly, out-and-about. I’m sure if you live in/near Hollywood or another major metropolitan area, it happens quite often, but seeing I grew up in a small town in Minnesota, a celebrity for us was see the city mayor grabbing a cup of joe from McDonald’s!
So here’s how I accidentally rubbed elbows with Drew Barrymore.
After some serious shopping, Craig and I headed to Middle Way Cafe to get some food. We sat down at our table, but when I realized we didn’t have any napkins, I went back to the front counter to grab some for us. As I turned around, to head back to our table, I looked up a saw a girl/women talking to one of the employees. I looked at her and thought to myself, “wow, she looks a lot like Drew Barrymore. I wonder if people tell her that often.” And then within a split second, I thought to myself, “oh my gosh, I think that was Drew Barrymore!” I scurried back to the table with a star-struck look on my face, I’m sure, and proceeded to tell Craig to go and confirm my speculation. When he returned, he affirmed I was correct!! Ahhhh!! I was freaking out–heck, I still am!
I knew Drew Barrymore was up here shooting the movie Everybody Loves Whales, but I didn’t think I would actually see any of the cast in person.
Well, with all that excitement, I barely remember eating my food. 😉 Just kidding. I do, and it was wonderful!
Middle Way Cafe: one of my favorite cafes in Anchorage
When we got back home, we chilled on the couch and watched Love Happens.
Both Craig and I enjoyed the movie! Craig gave it a ‘B,’ and I gave it an 8 out of 10! I wonder what that means that we each used different scales to grade it?!?!
Have you ever seen a celebrity out and about?
