So… we had kind of a fancy weekend. I’m going to tell you all about these raspberry chocolate pavlovas, of course, but first, I have to tell you about our Saturday night.
That night, our dear friend Jeremy invited us to join him and his friend at the White House for their annual holiday tour. I’m trying to type this and not SQUEAL AT THE TOP OF MY LUNGS at the same time. You know those people who meet celebrities and are just totally cool about it? I am so not one of those people. One time, I screamed home designer Vern Yip’s name right back at him in a parking lot of a restaurant in Atlanta. Vern Yip was on that TLC show “Trading Spaces” at the time, that show where neighbors swapped homes with each other for 48 hours and had a budget of $1,000 to make over a room in each other’s homes and tried not to freak out when the finished product was like, a lime green and teal living room. My sisters and I watched that show obsessively, and one night one of my sisters and I saw him as we were driving away from a restaurant. I slammed on the brakes, rolled down the window, and screamed his name at the top of my lungs. Over and over. He clutched his pocket. I think he might have thought we were trying to mug him. To this day, I’m really not sure what we were trying to do.
