Celebrities Friend Makin' Mondays Richard Simmons

Friend Makin’ Mondays: Who Would You Meet?

I may be stating the obvious here, but I really look forward to FMM every week.  And I hope that you enjoy it too!  I’m open to topic ideas and guest hosts so feel free to share your ideas if you have them.  I’m listening….:)

If you’ve taken part in FMM then you know the rules. If you’re new, please take a moment to answer this week’s question on your own blog then add your link in the comments section here at: www.alltheweigh.com so we can all see your FMM questions and answers. By linking back here, everyone will have an opportunity to be equally heard.

Please invite your blog readers to add their links here too so everyone has to opportunity to be seen.  The idea is to connect with other awesome bloggers so take a moment to post your own FMM post and comment on a couple of other posts. Now it’s time for this week’s topic!

FMM: If you could meet someone famous today, who would it be? And why? 
Can anyone guess what made me think of today’s topic? 😉  I’ve never been the kind of girl who walks around completely star struck.  I’ve seen more than a few celebrities since moving to NY in 2007, but I’ve never approached one.  This could be because I’ve never seen Derek Jeter or Mark Teixeira close up! I’d have a hard time not asking for a pic with my favorite baseball boys! And the same goes for my favorite TV star, Matt Bomer,  who plays Neal on White Collar

I think I just found my new wallpaper! 😉
I’m pretty sure it’s illegal to be this beautiful. Sighhh…but oh yeah..back to my post!


Anyway, if I could choose to meet one person, I’d choose the person I’m going to meet tomorrow.  You guessed it – Richard Simmons.  I would tell him thank you for the way he made me feel in those early days of workouts when “Sweatin’ to the Oldies” seemed like an impossible task. And I would tell him that he has touched my life in a personal way.   I’d hug him – and of course have my picture taken with him. =0) 

I’m going to have the opportunity to do that this week, and I am so utterly grateful!  I know I’ve talked about this a lot in the last couple of days, but it still seems like such an incredible dream!  I just cannot wait until it becomes reality! 

Now it’s your turn.  Who would you meet? Let’s hear it! And don’t forget to come back here and link to this post! Happy Monday!

    I found this one hard to answer…I wasn't sure what kind of famous person I wanted to meet. I'm happy with my choice though. Passion is contagious and I would love to get a bit from the famous guy to incorporate into my own life.

    Seriously, though, he is just Ah-mazing to look at!
