The One Where I Met Ben Folds

It's true. I met the man who rocks the suburbs.
The night before his show with the OKC Philharmonic Orchestra, Ben Folds put on a Master Class for a local university's contemporary music program. 
It. Was. Perfect.
He's a hilarious man with a dirty mouth full of fantastic stories. 
(He even made a "that's what she said" joke. Come on--it doesn't get much better than that.)
I can't decide if his talent, intelligence, or humility impressed me most.
I got to tell him that my dad and I danced to "Gracie" at my wedding. 
Seriously- one of my favorite moments of my favorite day involved this man's musical brilliance
and I got to tell him "thank you." 


Like I said, he's hilarious.

He's not smoking- just holding the mic. :)

There he is, signing my... planner. Yep- I'm that cool. 

I have every intention of framing this page from my Erin Condren planner.

Have you ever met a celebrity?
Aside from Ben Folds, I've also met Patrick Dempsey, Jason Mraz, Sara Bareilles, and Alan Jackson.
(One of these things is not like the other.)
