Yes, it's true!  I'm not here to rant or rave or post sad news!  Hard to believe, I'm sure!

Last night, I got to meet an author that I love - Jen Lancaster.  Jen, a New York Bestselling Author, has written Bitter is the New Black; Bright Lights, Big Ass; Such a Pretty Fat, Pretty in Plaid; and her new book, My Fair Lazy.  She was in Dayton at Books and Co. for a book-signing.  It was a bit bittersweet, as that store is one of two that my brother worked at when he was alive.

She writes about her life in a very funny, humorous way and is just a really nice person.  A fun time was had by all!  Here are a few pictures from the event:

My copies of all five of her books.

Jen, talking with the crowd (over 100 people were there).

Jen read an excerpt from her book, My Fair Lazy,  and had us all in stitches at this point.

Me talking with Jen as she signs my book.

Me and Jen!

How cool! I'm stoked for you!

Have you ever met her before?

Her name sounds familiar... I must have seen one of her books somewhere.

I had never met her before - I really just started reading her stuff last fall.

I've just read the first book, and I'm half-way through the second. My brother bought me the 3rd and 4th for Christmas, and I've not been able to pick up a book to read - I can't concentrate well enough due to my brother's death. So, I'm woefully behind on my Jen-reading. :)
