YEAH!! I got to meet Molly Ringwald!!


Finally a lil sunshine in the past few days!! Yes the title of this post is for real. I met Ms. Sixteen Candles herself!! Molly Ringwald!! I have a secret desire to meet every famous person I can. I love seeing the real people who I love quote time & time again. Molly Ringwald is one of those people. Her movies in the 80's defined a generation. I may have seen them in the 90's but they still had an impact on me. I wish the guy in the red car would show up on my birthday & kiss me while we're sitting on my dining room table. I always wanted to jam out to music in my library & make my own pink clothes. =)


Today I got to meet one of those Movie legends. She is awesome in person. Her book is called, "Getting the Pretty Back". Its about her loving herself @ her 40 year old self who is not 16 anymore & how she got the pretty back in herself. It's about her as a mother & its a real story...no one else wrote it, just her. She even has her Guide to life in it...how to have a diet without trying...how to be pretty without the make-up & the cameras rolling. I can't wait to read it.


She read parts from her book to us & then took questions. I actually somehow got up the nerve to raise my hand and ask her this,

"Do you still wear a lot of pink?"

To which she answered, "Can you see my feet? I have pink socks on.". It was awesome. See she is wearing pink socks!!! =)


She thanked us all for being fans & said she was absolutely amazed that she is still a role model today. The only thing was that she wouldn't pose for pics but there was a lot of people but I did get my booked signed & my cousin snapped a shot of me from behind as she signed the book. I'm smiling. I'm happy. I'm going to learn how to get my pretty back too! =) Here are the rest of the photos. Til Tomorrow...

I really haven't met anyone famous or at least famous to me. I know a world series baseball pitcher, but he is just some guy I see once in awhile. I don't follow sports ;).

You are one lucky girl!:-))) It looks like you had so much fun and Molly does look very pretty.:-)

Claire Kiefer said...

So exciting! Makes me want to watch some classic 80s movies :)

Jennifer Fabulous said...

You're so lucky, Mel!! I love Molly and like you, saw most of her greatest films in the 90s but they still had a huge impact on me. They are films that define teenagers in general, no matter what generation you're from.

She's so adorable and the book sounds AMAZING. I am definitely going to read it.

Love the pics!

Heather Rose said...

Amanda said...

That's so awesome!! I saw her talking about her book last week on the Today Show! I'm personally a huge fan of The Breakfast Club and I actually haven't seen 16 Candles. I know, it's just not right. I'll have to rent it :)

How much fun!! She is just gorgeous later in life too, glad you got to meet a star and get her signature!
