Katelin meet Ryan. Ryan meet Katelin.

Okay so first of all, just wanted to say I hope I didn't come off as putting those awards in everyone's faces yesterday. I wasn't trying to do that at all, just wanted to pass on the goodness all at once because there are truly some awesome blogs out there. So yeah, not trying to be snooty, just sharing.

However in more important, exciting and overall awesome news....I finally met Ryan Gosling!!!!

Auburn Kat must be psychic since she posted yesterday that she hoped that it would be the day I met him and squeeeee she was right!

So how did it finally happen you ask? Well let me tell you....

I was sitting at my desk, working away (per usual) with my headphones on and my coworker goes "Kate! Kate! He just walked by!" I, as expected, darted from my desk to the door to double check this and oh! He was right, I saw Ryan walking away with dog and a friend in tow. So I dash back to my desk, grab my purse and head down the street behind Ryan with plans to go to the coffee house down the street. I really had no idea what I was going to do or say, but I just wanted to meet him. My other coworker came out the door behind me and we walked (a little faster than normal, haha) down the street when to my surprise Ryan stopped because his cute lil mohawked dog, George, had to do his business*, haha.

So basically my coworker and I walked up to where he was as he was trying to calm his dog, haha. I sort of walked by but then stopped to pet the dog (even though I'm highly allergic to most furry creatures, haha) and started making small talk. Eventually my coworker and I introduced ourselves...well she said her name and I don't know what I said the first time because he had to ask and then I was like "Oh right, I'm Katelin." I couldn't help it, I was flustered, I was talking to Noah! After I told him I was a big fan and that his dog was cute and I was surprised I wasn't sneezing, I finally mustered up the courage to ask for a picture with him. And he was more than nice about it and suggested we move away from where his dog had pooped and then peed, haha. So we moved to the sidewalk some more and my coworker took a picture, holla. Afterwards we both told him it was nice to meet him, he said the same, and then we kept on walking to the coffee house. Well I sort of skipped, but not too much, haha. So yes Ryan is just as cute in person as you would expect, he is incredibly nice, has a super cute and very active dog, and is so down to earth it just makes him awesome. He definitely gets super cool celeb points for all of that.

Oh and here is the oh so awesome picture that I can't wait to add to my celebrity collection, haha, woo Ryan:

Don't mind the goofy smile, I couldn't help it. :)
le swooooon.

Oh and to add to the goodness, after my lunch I walked to the front of my office to walk back in and who was getting into his car with his friends? Yes. Ryan. Again. Two sightings in one day. Hark. Thank you celebrity gods, thank you.



*And yes for all you pet owners out there, Ryan did pick up the dog poop, just did it after we walked away, haha, such a good pet owner.



happy thursday!

Ahh! Thats awesome!! congrats! And like dmb5? I soooo would not have been as cool. I probably would have said my name wrong or something. :) Soooo exciting!

lspoon said...

jealous, Jealous, JEALOUS! Ahh! That is so exciting. Though honestly, I'm obsessed with the McAdams and if I met Ryan Gosling I probably wouldn't stop talking about her.

Ahh! Did I mention my jealousy? :)

rialeilani said...

That's awesome! He always seemed like he was a nice guy, just from the vibe he gives off on the red carpet and stuff.

Anonymous Amy said...

hey hey hey! that is pretty damn sweet; I would have been too shy and then regretted it forever. points to you for owning your moment!

Missy said...

Happy Thursday indeed!

Such a great story.

Andréa said...

OMG!!! That is freaking awesome!!!! You should have posed like you were Rachel McAdems and jumped on him like the notebook. Well, maybe he wouldn't have gone for that, but that would have be AWESOME!! Damn he is cute!

Julie Q said...

Grits said...

Sooooo happy for you! That is awesome! Plus, it's always nice to hear about celebrities that are nice in real life. I met Kristi Yammaguchi once and she was not even barely polite.

Jen said...

Can I just tell you how happy I am for you (ok and a little jealous too). I think more than that I'm just really glad to hear that Ryan is a nice guy. It is hard to continue to have sexual fantasies about a jerk, so thanks for keeping the dream alive.

Oh and I have a celebrity photo collection too. :)

Sandy said...

Ahh I'm so happy for you that you FINALLY got to meet him. (And, you know, insanely jealous. He's HOT)

Daddy Dan said...

Good for you!

Am I the only one here that didn't know who Ryan Gosling was? I guess I'm out of it. I went to imdb.com, so now I know! I do remember him from The Notebook.

Maxie said...

Jamie said...

OMG his arm is around you!

I was in petsmart paying when I got your text and I was like OMG! and the girls all looked at me. Then I made her wait before I would give her my money so I could text you back.

Katelin and celebs come first!

rs27 said...

The people that are in his close circle call him "The Gos"

I made that up.

You should send that picture to US Weekley "stars are just like us"

Thanks for the shout out yesterday!

blondieblue227 said...

Chiming in late, but WHEEEEEE! That's AWESOME!

Kate said...

I just found your blog (through Amanda at I Could Be Oridinary) and I am SO jealous!
What area was this? When I am back in LA winter break I need to hunt him down!

Princess Pointful said...

Eeeek! So jealous! You are a superstar!

longredcape said...

SWOONAGE.

Kat said...

congrats on meeting him. I've casually chatted with a few folks at Starbucks and whatnot, but I've never complimented someone on their work (even when I met Sir Paul). I'd be too nervous - let alone ask for a picture. I'd die.

And good for you for recognizing him. I'm SO bad at that sort of thing.

Douchegirl said...

God I can't believe it actually happened! I'm so happy for you. Can you believe I read EVERY.SINGLE.COMMENT on this post? I feel like I met him, too. He looks so cute in that pic.

I would've been so starstruck, I'd probably pee myself. And would not be able to stop talking about Rachel.

*jimaie.marie* said...

um, you are officially the luckiest girl on the planet.
i am GREEN WITH ENVYYYYYY!! :D

SO awesome!
good god, he's adorable.
