Mission Accomplished


I admit that yesterday's post fell into the category of a teeny-bop, Twilight-crazed Edward Cullen fan, but I was on a whim and had to express my excitement somehow! Let me just tell you that it progressed throughout the day.

We arrived at the UCLA campus where Real Madrid was practicing, which is beautiful by the way! We thought we were late, but then found out practice was an hour longer than expected. This led to us waiting forever and still getting stuck on the other side of the gate where they were to exit.

Finally, the team came out! People screaming everywhere, waving jerseys and banners all around!


We missed Sergio the first time around, so we starting running like crazy people down the sidewalk where his cart was driving.


He stopped again about mid-length to the locker room to sign some jerseys and pictures. We thought for sure we were going to get him here. I mean, after all I did have a jersey! That is worth stopping for to support a fan, don't you think?


But no, he hopped back in cart. However, at this precise time we had a moment. I yelled, "SERGIO!" and pointed at my jersey with a desperate, puppy dog face. He looked straight at me, smiled, pointed at me and said, "Later!"


How could I be upset with that answer? I mean just look at my starstruck face! Matt and I just knew it was going to happen. We waited for another 45 minutes and strategized our signing location. I finally relented to going on the opposite side of all the screaming girls, as Matt suggested, because according to his rationale, "There was no way I was ever going to get an autograph with a ton of screaming people in front of me! I had to be secluded!"

Then came the moment of truth...


We decided to stand opposite the girls around the same location Sergio had promised me his autograph. He was about to keep going, but I was shouting his name like it was going to save my life and smiling my cutest, sweetest smile. He halted his driver and ran out shouting, "quickly, quickly!" so he wouldn't get mobbed.


With my face beaming with a side-to-side grin, I told him "gracias" as he got back on his cart. He turned and smiled at me again with a "de nada" in reply. He also shook Matt's hand, which made him super happy.

Matt, you were right (you should probably print this so you have proof I admitted you were right for once)!

Sergio, you are a man of your word, which makes you all the more awesome in my book.

The rest of the night was spent in utter bliss, as we strolled along Hollywood Blvd admiring all the sites and Harry Potter fans at Grauman's Chinese Theatre.

Thanks for sharing my first celebrity meeting with me, and reading my mini novel. It is now forever documented as one of my favorite California moments.

TGIF, loves!

This story made me smile:) I love the part where Sergio smiled and pointed you out to say that he'd find you later to sign the jersey (how cute!) - i'd totally be star struck as well.
