I have never been to a book signing. My husband has quite a few books signed. I don't normally care if a book is signed or not because I don't generally care who wrote the book as long as it is good. Now that I follow a lot of bloggers it's different. These are people I actually admire and feel like I know due to their daily postings. Jen is hilarious and so is her husband. She seems very approachable and I was so excited to meet her. My husband also was excited on my behalf but sadly was unable to join me. I felt weird going by myself because he is very chatty and I am so quiet.

The one on the left is the one I created from cupcakes and icing. The one at right is the original picture submitted to Cake Wrecks.

My cupcake wrecks didn't take home any top honors but I didn't leave home empty handed. I got a set of buttons:
Aren't they funny? I also walked away with an Epbot button which is not pictured. And a slice of this yummy cake:
Jen gave a kick-ass presentation that left us all in stitches. I seriously could have peed my pants with laughter. After the presentation she signed books. I had mine taunt my husband who was sad because he had to work while I went out and had fun.
Jen has two books out. I have the Holiday Wreck edition.
It's good reading anytime of the year and we keep it out on the coffee table for a quick laugh because we don't drink coffee and our table is depressed.
If you haven't checked out Jen's blog I highly recommend them and if you ever get a chance to meet her do so. She's fun and both she and her husband are very sweet.
P.S. I parked right next to their car. Wait. That sounds kind of stalkerish. But it isn't I just happened to go out to my car at the same time Jen's hubby went to go get something. I was just like *sweet*. What a co-inky-dink! Okay, I'm going to shut up now but getting my book signed was the highlight of the holidays for me, lol!
