confessions from a FANGIRL road trip…

what do you do when your 13 yr old has a christmas list that  looks like this???


my christmas wish list

1. a baby sister or brother*
2. tickets to see hunter rowland**


*not happening

** (hunter rowland -teen social media sensation from you tube and musically)

you try to bargain, plead, and threaten other gifts. to no avail. she.does.not.want.anything.else

i love christmas. the christmas season infects my mind (thank you baby jesus and christmas pageants and candlelight services) ,  my heart (thank you cold salvation army bell ringers)  body (thank you delicious cookies), and spirit (thank you hallmark channel and christmas lights).  i have a serious christmas infection from nov.1 thru jan 1 and  i just cannot make rational gift choices…last year i bought a puppy. a last minute gift of a real live puppy. in the aftermath, the million dollar questions i ask myself…WHY???? WHY???? WHY??? WHAT IS WRONG WITH YOU???

{fyi i chose option no. 2}

and as i am driving 4 hours away in cold january rain with  two 13 yr old girls…for a HUNTER ROWLAND FANGIRL ROAD TRIP… i am silently asking myself…WHY??? WHY??? WHY??? WHAT IS WRONG WITH YOU???


according to the urban dictionary :


v. 1. the reaction a fangirl has to any mention or sighting of the object of her “affection”. these reactions include shortness of breath, fainting, highpitched noises, shaking, fierce head shaking as if in the midst of a seizure, etc.2. a gathering of two or more fangirls in which they proceed to waste endless amounts of time ogling, discussing/arguing, stalking, etc. the object of their “affection”


things i learned from this trip…

1) VIP tickets do not mean you get to go right in.  we stood in line for two hours and we had tickets.

2) i was confused about what was going on because there were a lot of girls. some were crying, screaming..screeching…running over other girls.  i was looking to the other parents present for nods of confirmation this was indeed craziness…no one nodded back.  i then told roo & riles-if they acted like that-we had to leave immediately-at least be a respectable stalker fangirl.


they gave him a poster. he gave them hugs and took a picture of them and put it on “his story”.   it was a very big deal in their world.   christmas wish granted.  thank you hunter rowland.


 after all that…going back to the hotel was heaven. seriously pure bliss and pizza delivery.

the teeny boppers even woke up from the hotel the next morning at 5:30 am for a little photo shoot before we left pittsburgh.





                                                  the photo above is a POP SOCKET.  i inherited roo’s old one after the hunter rowland merchandise binge.  listen people…they are NOT JUST FOR MIDDLE SCHOOLERS.                                                                                       i thought they were but they are not… pop sockets are genius for all ages…not just the selfie/musically age group.
















i survived roo’s  christmas gift this year.
