I met tons of cool people, had a chance to chat with people who love books as much as I do, and just because I think it's the neatest thing ever, in attendance also was former First Lady Laura Bush (complete with her 5 secret service agents entourage). Also in attendance, was fellow Texas Sweetheart Jo Whittemore (looking way gorgeous, I have to say!).
So pictures sum it up best...
Jo and me posing Texas Sweetheart style!
My date for the evening, the elusive Riley Hoover
The meal was top-notch, and I ate every bit of this dessert!
After the event, we headed out to an Irish pub to act like grown-ups for a bit. I forgot how much fun this can be.
Thank you, Friends of the SMU Libraries! I am honored to have been part of such an amazing evening!
