We didn't even have any incidents!
Well...okay, I *might* have had to make a few u-turns. And I may or may not have ended up on the wrong freeway at one point. But in my defense--LA freeways are ridiculously confusing, and I don't drive them very often and... *searches for a leg to stand on* *wobbles* Whatever--let's see YOU do better! :)
Anyway, we made it there in one piece with plenty of time to spare, which of course meant we decided to take advantage of happy hour at a mexican restaurant across the street from Vromans. Since I was the driver and Lisa had to present we both agreed to limit ourselves to one--yes ONE--margarita. And we did. But oh mans were they strong! Good thing we had hours to let them wear off. Though Lisa's *might* not have worn off in time for her signing...
Only kidding. She was fabulous:
And look at how many pretty books she has!
Not to mention I was in writer heaven, getting to hang out with one of my favorite authors, learn from her experience, hear her stories, soak up her wisdom--plus Lisa is seriously one of the sweetest people ever. So, yeah, it was an AWESOME day! And I couldn't go to a signing without picking up a prize for you guys, so...
I'm giving away a signed copy of It's Raining Cupcakes, and a matching bookmark!!!!!
CONTEST NOW CLOSED--thanks to all who entered!
