Celebrity Spotting

Have you ever met anybody famous? We had a fun and random celebrity encounter when we lived in California. We were eating at this little out-of-the-way cafe in San Gregorio Beach when we spotted Tyler - one of the winners of the Amazing Race. We weren't faithful followers of The Amazing Race but did catch the season with "the hippies" (as Tyler and BJ were called) and definitely were fans. We loved these guys and even our kids got into it. So when we passed him entering this restaurant we knew we had to meet him. He was so friendly and nice! He gave us both hugs and signed an autograph for Isaac. It was pretty exciting.

Too funny! I have never seen him before, but he looks like a fun sort of character.

I never really followed it, but from the looks of him, it had to be entertaining. I spilled hot chocolate on Goldie Hawn...

I actually watched that season. He was such a nice guy.
I saw what's his name from Wings (one of the brothers who has been in lots of other shows since, I just can't remember which one) while I was walking down the street in NYC. I also saw Balki Bartakomos from Perfect Strangers in a CVS in NYC. And Donny Osmond ate Sunday dinner with us at the BYU London Center when I was in 4th grade. I think that is the extent of my celebrity spotting.

Lemme think....I saw John Travolta in London once, and I also saw the short guy on the West Wing (the guy who became the chief of staff for the VP in the last season) on the beach in Malibu. But I was never so bold as to talk to anyone. How did you dare? Was it easy and casual. He seems like he would be a friendly personable guy to approach.

Steve and I LOVE Tyler! We really get in to Amazing Race-- I'm so jealous. The season with Tyler and BJ was our favorite.

Hey, I had to comment again because Adam (who is currently on a business trip in LA) just called me to say that last night he sat directly in front of Nick Lachey at the Dodgers game and his hotel is next to the place where they film American Idol and he just passed by Simon Cowell on the street.

Our family was cheering for the hippies to win from the first episode. That is so cool you saw him and that you actualy talked with him. I am so glad he was nice.

I was hoping to see lots of celebs when I moved to here, but I've only got Alicia Silverstone at Disneyland and I went to the taping of "The Bachelor: The Women Tell All" for this past season. A friend of mine met Kiefer Sutherland- that would have been cool- I love "24"!
