    My Dublin Meet & Greet experience :)

    Well, what can I say? Crazy dreamsreally do come true! I really don't know if I can even put this wholething into words.....but I am going to try!




    We got to the Olympia around 5:45 asthe M&G email said to be there by 6 at the latest. It was atleast 7:30 before we were called into the stadium. As per Robin,Donna & Robin I tried to be as far back in the queue as possible.Turns out I was last! You could not see Carrie until you walkedaround the corner after you were called. There were 14 in the M&G10 FC winners & 4 Americans who seemed to know somebody inCarries crew. I really wasn't nervous all day until there was onlyone other preson (Pamela) in front of me.


    So, now I was called.....heart racing,palms sweaty & full of nervous excitement! I turned the corner &seen Carrie, she was dressed in black & white. I said “hi, itsgreat to finally have you come to Ireland”and shook herhand...happy birthday!..I was too flustered to hug her! She said Hi,thank you and something else which I cannot quite remember. I handedher my London ticket which I was getting her to sign and a blackSharpie but she was already holding one so I said "oh, youalready have one!” *facepalm* Stating the obvious is a talent Ipossess!
    I gave her my present which was anIrish National soccer jersey with her name & Mikes number on theback, a pair of shamrock sunglasses and a number plate that said ILove Ireland (she didnt open any presents) I hope she likes it!


    I asked her if she was enjoying hertime in Ireland to which she replied she was (SCORE!) that the peoplehad been so good to her. Then I got flustered & words would notcome out of my mouth! All I could say was "I'm sorry I can't getany words out .........I'm sorry I can't get any words out " Imust have said that about 10 times! She told me to relax & that Iwould get them out.....she couldn't have been more patient! So Ipulled myself together and told her why I was getting the Londonticket signed....you all know the story behind that, right? LOLCarrie was surprised to hear of my "ordeal" She said shechecks her bag like 20 times a day to make sure she has her passport!(who would pay to see Carries passport picture?!)


    I then went on to tell her about thesigned CD Robin got me from her M&G (a few days before theIreland dates were announced....she laughed) She smiled & saidthat was great! I then found good form and had more questions for her


    As you guys seen, she tweeted a pic ofa pint of Guinness. I asked Carrie if she really drank it...cos itsrotten! She said she did but only the half of the pint & that shehad had it before in the US on St Patricks Day! But that it tastednicer here!! I said yeah, people say it tastes nicer here &especially that it tastes nicer in the Guinness Storehouse. I askedCarrie if she was having any trouble understanding the Irish accent,she said she wasnt


    Now we went for out pic! I was sosurprised to see the Blown Away background! I did not think theywould bring it with them! We stood for our pic. I couldnt pluck upthe courage to ask for a hugging pic! My bottom jaw was shaking. Iswear I could hear my teeth chattering!! The photographer took ourpic & I said thank you, turned to Carrie & said "goodbye,itwas lovey meeting you, see you again tomorrow" as I was going tothe Belfast show also, she said “awesome, it was nice to meet youtoo.”


    I was so nervous I forgot to look atmy pic with Carrie even though the photographer told me it was alovely pic! Then I went out & took my place in the pit......allM&G winners were let in straight away and whoever was standingwere guaranteed front row!


    So as I stood waiting for the concertto start I tweeted “Just met @carrieunderwood I shook like & aleaf & she couldnt have been any nicer #BlownAwayTourIreland#CarrieTour” two mins after I tweeted that Carrie tweeted back toa previous tweet I sent that day! One of me & my friend Michellejust heading out to the Olympia! So within the space of 20 mins I gotto meet Carrie, get a tweet from her & be front row for her firstgig in Ireland! I dont think the day could have been any moreperfect!!


    Here are some pics of my present toCarrie, my sign for the night & my pic with Carrie.....my reviewwill come later on today as I have yet to upload the pics. We went ona little roadtrip on the way home so I will get them up later on!


    I hope you guys enjoyed reading my M&GEncounter

    My present to Carrie.....an Irish national soccer jersey

    I'm so happy for you Melissa! I can't believe that you finally got to meet Carrie after all this time. I love the presents you got her, I'm sure she will too. Congrats on keeping you cool long enough to at least have a decent conversation with her that you could actually remember. lol.
