make your siren’s call


This past weekend turned out be quite exciting! I was supposed to second shoot a wedding up in northern Michigan and found out I wasn’t actually needed! Instead, I went to Detroit to visit my friend Erin and as usual we went to Birmingham for lunch and to hit up a few of our favorite shops. We ate at a super cute restaurant, Forte and after I was really craving a caramel macchiato from Starbucks..

As we sat waiting for our drinks, my eyes met one super hot man and in an instant I realized I AM LOOKING AT GERARD BUTLER. We knew he was in town filming a movie and he’s staying in Birmingham. Erin and I sat in shock for a moment and then stood next to him to grab our drinks. We stalled to leave to gather our composure (and sneak a photo) and as we left I noticed Ger following behind so I held the door open for him. He had his face down, but he said thank you to me. I think I might have blacked out. I don’t remember saying you’re welcome back or anything but just in shock that I had a moment with him. I love hot ruggedly handsome men and he fits that description. I think I would have had the same reaction to him whether he was a celebrity or not. He’s just so good looking.  Woo!

Yay! I forgot to mention before, but I was selected as one of the third place winners for the Beso Inspired Contest on Chictopia! I didn’t win cash, but I’ll be featured in their August lookbook!

    Hahaha. Your hair managed to hide Gerard. Love it! He is so hot Andrea. I am cheating on my husband just thinking about him. But I guess it doesn't count. Well maybe because its Gerard !! Were you silently screaming in your head? I know I would have.

    All the stalker syndrome aside, you look gorgeous, love the skirt. The color is so beautiful! πŸ™‚

    Love the color of that skirt! And I just recently had a celebrity encounter myself, with the Flaming Lips, and I had a very similar reaction. Sometimes we forget they are still humans!

    That's so exciting. He does look pretty hott in that sneaky picture.
    I was standing on the sideway waiting for the light to change when I glanced over and say an attractive man standing there. I did a double take and realized it was Colin Farrell! Not as cool as your story, but also attractive and also foreign.

    By the way you look great in lavender! And congrats on the Chictopia win!
