The real reason I've been in Reno for the last few days was to see Sarah Palin speak. Now I know I have many readers that aren't Sarah fans (Hi JD!), but not to worry, this post won't be about politics. Think of it as a cross between fashion police and my commentary on our fantasy friendship.
(And if you are a Sarah fan...you know I'm going to do plenty of fawning!)
I've actually known I was going to see my fantasy BFF since I was home at Thanksgiving. JD helped me pick out my dress, and if JD says 'wear it'...I wear it!
Trying to do my best celebrity red carpet pose.
Sarah was speaking at the Weatherby Award, which is a big deal in the hunting world. (Jason's dad won it about 20 years ago.)
These were the table centerpieces. I loved them!
Here's what the room looked like. Since Jason's dad is a past award winner, and now on the Weatherby board of directors, we got to sit right up front!
And here's my girl.
She was about 20 feet away from me...with 3 huge bodyguards.
She mostly spoke about her love of hunting, the outdoors, her parents (who were there) and her TLC show.
So let's talk fashion.
She really looks just like she does on TV. She's little and skinny.
She wore her hair down, leather jacket, and I'm thinking it was a suede skirt. And, of course, those great high-heeled leather boots.

BFFs together at last.
The end of the evening...
My hair is a little flatter, but I can't wipe the smile off my face!
