Being from KY and since my dad works at Churchill Downs, Derby weekend is always a big deal in my family. We get to go to Derby each year and it's just so much fun. On top of that, James usually works a special off duty detail as security for a celebrity coming to the Barnes-Stable Brown party. This year he's escorting Guy Fieri from the Food Network. James has done this for 6 years now and each year the people he has haven't gotten personal. I always ask to meet them and of course I'm told no. Well, I was super excited that he has Guy this year. I love Ultimate Recipe Showdown. He seems like such a nice, down to earth, fun person. James picked him and his wife up from the airport last night and he is exactly what we thought. James said he's super nice. Of course I am wanting to meet him, but like every year I expected to get the NO answer. James called last night (I'm missing him terribly because I haven't seen him since yesterday at like 8:30am) and told me that Guy asked if he was married/had a girlfriend and James said he was married. Then Guy told him he should invite his wife out to hang with them. UM....WHAT??? I was invited to hang out with Guy and I can't b/c I'm stuck in the hospital. James told him the issue and he said Congrats and that he hopes everything goes well, but talk about disappointment. The one year I'm actually allowed to meet the person, it's someone cool, and I'm stuck in the hospital. Now let me state this: I love my babies and will do ANYTHING necessary to keep them in as long as possible. However, I am still disappointed.
So that's what's going on with me.
