    i know that this is late, but its better late than never, right?
    The meet and greet started at 8, and we got to the gate a little before then. The security guards let us all in, and we stood and waited by a tent, in which the meet and greet would be held. There was a line with about 30 people. Kellie came to the tent, and everyone cheered. As it got closer to my turn, my heart was pounding in my chest. I was so excited, yet nervous that I was gunna say something dumb lol. The line was going really fast. It probably took about 10 minutes to get through all the people in front of me. (I was one of the last people)
    So it's my turn. It was so surreal having eye to eye contact with her. I walk up to her, and she goes "Heyyy! How are ya?" and puts her arms out for a hug, and I'm like "hiiii! I'm good" and she's like "Good to see you! I like your shirt! did you make it?" and I said yeah. and she was like "wow!!" I was holding stuff for her to sign in my hand, and she took it out of my hands, and asked "lets see, what is this?!" and it was a plain piece of paper. I asked if she could write "gotta keep movin" on it, and she was "yeah! where at? on here?" and she opens my countdown, and got excited, and goes "What is THIS?!" and i'm like "my countdown to see you" and she freaked out and said "OH MY GOODNESS!" and I told her it started at 161 days, and she was like "Are you kidding me?!?! I looove it!" and asked "do you want me to write something on this?" and I asked if she could sign it. and she said "of course!" So after she signed the countdown, she wrote on the plain piece of paper "gotta keep movin" and I'm like "that's gunna be on my foot, forever" and she looked up at me, and goes "you're gunna put this tattoo on your foot?! my handwriting is so sloppy, nobody's gunna know what it says!" and my mom says "kellie, your handwriting is perfect! :)" so she wrote it again, a second time, and thats the one we decided on :)
    I got out a bag of stuff for her birthday. I was like "I know that you don't like surprises, so I put it in a see-through bag!" lol. I got her a bday card, sour patch kids, a bracelet just like the one I have, a necklace that I fell in love with at the store, and some other things. and she goes "awwwww thank you so much!!" and gave me a hug, and was looking at all the stuff saying "ohhh myyy goodnessss!" I pointed to the bracelet, and showed her that I have one just like it, and it means a lot to me. and she was like "let me see!" she looked at the one on my wrist, and said "iiiii LOVE it, I'm gunna wear it tonight!" I didn't expect that at all, I was shocked. Then I told her that there was a letter and a bday card in there too, and she said "oh my goodness, thank you SO much!" and she pointed to the sour patch kids, and goes "i'll have to hide these so my brother doesn't steal them!" lol. and my mom said "he can have some too!" and she says "thats so sweet, thank you so much sweetheart" she is SO appreciative of everything, its soo sweet! and i continued and said "you're welcome! my name is alyssa by the way" cuz i never told her my name. and she goes "YEAH! let me write 'to: alyssa" and she's like "a-l-y?" and i'm like "yeah!!" i was really surprised. she wrote that, and asked for the rest "s-s-a?" and i'm like "yep!" and my mom was like "wow! you're good!" lol. and she added 'many blessings' on the paper, and signed it. then she stood up and was like "i love your n--, you got the necklace!!!!!" and i'm like "of course!!" we took the picture of just me and her. then my mom joined the group and kellie goes "okay! come on in here!" and we posed. It was my niece's birthday that day, and I bought her a card, and my mom wanted to see if she could get Kellie to sign it. kellie did it, no problem, and asked what her name was, and she said kiara. and kellie paused lol. and i'm like "k-i-a-r-a" so she wrote "you're beautiful kiara!"
    and i'm like "thanks SO much for everything" and i asked for another hug. and she was like "yeahhh!" and while I was hugging her i told her that I loved her. and she said "Awwwww I love you too!! thank you! and i LOVE your shirt!!" and touched my arm, and I told her thank you, and that was it!
    I was really lucky that I got all that time to discuss those few things with her. Previously before I got up there, the security guards were getting impatient, and rushing people along. They didn't say a word to me, to rush me. I was VERY thankful for that.
    Anyways.. We got back to our seats, and Kellie was gunna be on shortly. She came on, and was wearing my bracelet. I kinda almost died. It was pretty cool lol.
    One thing that I'll never forget while she was on stage, was when someone whistled at her, and she goes "I heard someone whistle." and a bunch of people started whistling, and with a serious face, she goes "THATS ENOUGH." *pause* "nah, i'm just kidding, keep whistling, it makes me feel good!" lol. Another time she was like "we're gunna strip down" and all the guys screamed. and shes like "NO! we're gunna strip down to just guitar. I should really think of a different word, cuz everytime i say strip, everyone thinks of something else. you perverts! the only thing i'm taking off, is my shoes!" lol.
    That whole day was unbelievably PERFECT. The weather was beautiful, everything just went so smoothly. I honestly couldn't have had a better day. I don't think that I'll ever live a day that was as amazing as that day.
    Kellie is so incredibly sweet in person, even sweeter than videos, on tv, etc. Being she's had such a hard life, you can just tell in her eyes that she's thankful for every little thing, and is so apprecitive. I've never met such a nice person in my life. I also didnt know that she could get any more stunning, but up close, she is freaking gorgeoussssss. The whole experience was just unbelievable.


    **Thanks Mike for letting me know about the codes! I'll try them with IMG!**

    That was great, Alyssa! Thanks for posting!

    I'm glad you got to meet her and have such a great experience.

    Very cute interview in that first video!!!!!

    For some reason the pic links here aren't working, but I went and looked over at the fan club board and they're really nice. (The "IMG" codes from Photobucket work better on this board, and the pics come in inline.)

    It's probably going to be pretty quiet here over the holiday, so it might take a few days before everyone gets to see your review. But I sure do appreciate you're posting, and I'm sure everyone else will like it, too.

    A very sweet review of your Kellie experience Alyssa. I know Kellie really appreciates devoted fans like yourself.

    Kellie's impersonation of Taylor was hilarious!

    LOVE the pic of Kellie & Eric on stage. Please tell us more about what happened. Did Kellie call him up on impulse? Was she teasing him? Singing to him? Was he embarrassed or did he have fun with it? Please tell all the neato details. Thanks.

    Eric is sure dressed in some cute duds. It think I see some Kellie influence there. Everytime I see another pic of him, he looks more confident. Can you imagine what this summer has been like for Eric !:kickbutt::banana::lolwave:

    Was so tickled of you're first time with Kellie. This is the main reason i'm wanting to use this in our 3rd issue of our site newsletter.
    Those pictures says it all!

    Eric came on the stage twice. The first time he brought a stool out for Kellie (and another guy was carrying 2 more out) for "I wonder" and "Don't Close Your Eyes". She didn't really say much, besides "Give these guys a hand!"

    Then, at the end, I spotted Eric watching Kellie perform and was dancing. He was inside the stage, way to the side. At the end, he came out and Kellie introduced him, and told everyone that he was her brother, and everyone was like "awwwwwww!!" and he gave her a hug!
