Daily Diary ~ What I learned from Meryl Streep this week

This week I learned a couple of amazing lessons from Meryl Streep.

During the Into the Woods event we had the opportunity to interview Meryl Streep and she was truly amazing. My first life lessons from Meryl Streep started just before the interview and continued through out the event.

About 10 minutes before our scheduled interview with Meryl Streep I ran to the bathroom thinking I would have more than enough time to get back in the room before the interview. As I came around the corner from the bathroom I had a moment of panic. You see Meryl Streep was 10 minutes early for our interview and I wasn’t in my seat. I looked at the other blogger who was with me and we just shook our heads. What were we to do?

We decided to power walk down the hall and get to the interview room as fast as we could. We figured jogging in a Beverly Hills hotel might be frowned upon :-)

As we got closer and closer to the room Meryl Streep noticed us and smiled as we approached. She greeted us with a friendly smile and asked how we were doing. We told her we were sorry if she had to wait and that we would get right in the room. She smiled and laughed and said not to worry about a thing. She was incredibly gracious and friendly during our interaction.

After we took our seats we had the chance to interview not only Meryl Streep but also Christine Baranski and Tracey Ullman. All 3 ladies are wonderful friends and it shows in their behavior. I will be sharing details of the interview later this week.

During the interview it could have easily been the Meryl show with her taking front and center stage but this didn’t happen. The interview was equally spread among the amazing ladies and they each praised each other for their friendship and performance in Into the Woods. They were all so happy and joyful to be sharing the moment together….

Daily Diary ~ Living my 90’s dreams in LA

I am a child of the 80’s and 90’s.. ok and the 70’s but only for a little bit.

I grew up watching Melissa Joan Hart and Joey Lawrence on tv each week. They were some the stars that you could count on for a good laugh or to get caught up in their stories.

Yesterday I had the chance to live out my 90’s dream and meet both Melissa Joan Hart and Joey Lawrence on the set of their ABC Family TV Show Melissa and Joey.
