I had just got home after a day of making people feel beautiful about themselves(work)for Smashbox, when my boyfriend asked me if we should make dinner or go out..feeling kinda lazy I told him I wanted to go out, We couldn't decide on where to go. And finally went for the good ol' Denny's. We usually go somewhere a little more healthy(hey I had the salad!) but decided simple = better! And I guess we were right. We were seated two tables away from a group of four. After ordering our drinks I took a look around the restaurant and caught a glimpse of a familiar profile. Looking closer I was thought "that looks like Coco, but why would she be in Vancouver....and of all places Denny's?"
For about 20 minutes, I admit I was practically staring at her! I then asked the waitress if that was her and she was like "YES!!!" I was so excited! I told my man that I wanted a photo but was too scared to go and ask her. So nonchalantly he went to the bathroom and when he came back, walked right past our table and straight to hers. He asked her if I could take a photo with her! (I LOVE HIM!).
Next thing I know she was standing beside me smiling. I apologized for staring. She said "It's alright" Shook my hand and gave me a hug. Took the photo and told me that it was nice to meet me and to enjoy my meal. She was so graceful. For some reason I thought she would be taller! This photo above was me without heels.
Let's just say I was giddy and smiling all the way home! Such an honour to meet such an inspirational model.
