Next rain/Sarah Meets Selena Gomez and Justin Bieber!

On Wednesday, the cool spot will be over the Rockies with some snow showers possible in Denver. Highs will be in the 30s and 40s from the Rockies to the northern plains and in northern New England. Highs elsewhere will be in the 50s, 60s, and 70s. There is a slight risk for severe weather for north central Texas and southern Oklahoma. There could also be thunderstorms in surrounding areas and states.

Skies will become cloudy in Houston on Wednesday. It will be a breezy, mild afternoon with highs in the 70s. Look for some rain, maybe a thunderstorm Wednesday night into early Thursday as the next cold front arrives. The weather should be sunny and pleasant through the weekend. Another systems passes to the north of Houston over the weekend, but probably will not bring much in the way of rain. Through the weekend, lows will be in the 40s and 50s with highs in the 70s.

A wonderful surprise on Sunday at the Houston Livestock Show and Rodeo. Around the time I purchased tickets for the Selena Gomez/Justin Bieber concert (from Ebay in the nose bleed section), I starting sending inquiries for Sarah to meet Selena Gomez backstage. I kept checking my email and nothing. Luckily, I checked Sunday morning and there was a message from someone named Mark, giving me a phone number and saying to call him at that number at 4:30 pm. Well, I was super excited but also leery, because I had put out several feelers and was worried it might be a cruel joke...especially since The Wiggles had contacted us weeks before their concert.

So, we went to the rodeo and of course, had a great time. And at 4:30 pm on the dot, I called Mark. I got his voice mail. And, it didn't say that it was Mark who works for Selena Gomez. So, again, I wasn't sure if this was legit. I tried again about 4:45 pm...still a voice mail. Then Megan suggested that I text him. So I did...twice.

Luckily at 5:15 when my phone rang...I had it in my lap. I almost dropped it, I was so excited about answering...it was Mark!!! I could barely hear him--it was so noisy. He said to meet him at Section 135 immediately. So, we raced to the elevator (which for the first nail biting 30 seconds didn't seem to be working and even had a sign to that effect). But then it was like the angels sang as the doors opened. We rushed to get to Section 135. Mark was waving his arm and calling me on my cell phone again. Apparently, Selena didn't have much time to visit. So, we really needed to hurry.

We were ushered to right outside her dressing room door. She came right out and gave Sarah and Megan big hugs. I was immediately struck by how tall she was--she must be at least 5'7". I even asked her to show me her heels--only about an inch or so. She was so gracious and sweet. I asked her if she was had super long days and she said "not too bad--only about 10 and half hours and I love what I do. So, it's not bad at all". Then I asked her if she was ready for her concert and she said she was but she was nervous. That really surprised me. But then I remembered how it did seem easier for me to be in front of the camera because it is an inanimate object--much different from looking at thousands of eyes looking back at you. The concert was sold out by the way--70,000 people. I also met Selena's mom and visited with her for a while. She said Selena's schedule was not as grueling travel-wise as Justin Bieber's. The whole entourage really embraced Sarah.

Well then Sarah asked Mark about Justin Bieber. And, Mark introduced us to Scooter, Justin's manager. Scooter said that of course Sarah could meet Justin--but we just had to find him. So, we went wandering around looking for him. Finally Justin showed up and he made Sarah's day for a second time. Sarah has a big crush on him. She really ate up the attention. I asked Justin how he gets his hair to look like that and he joked that he just flicks it forward. Megan and I noticed later at the concert that yes indeed, he was flicking it forward. Scooter, Justin's manager, said they had to grab a private plan to New York right after the concert because Justin was going to be on The View Monday morning. Well anyway, we finally got out of the backstage area at about 6 pm...right before Selena was going on.

Mark, Selena's manager told us not to go back up to the top level and gave us seats in a bottom section. Poor Selena's mom was supposed to sit next to us, but she didn't want to make a scene and chase away 2 kids who were sitting there. So, she and her husband found another place to watch the show. Now that was just so nice! Those kids and their parents had no idea that was Selena's folks.

Both Selena and Justin and their support staff were very down to earth and very kind. We are so grateful.

The concerts were so much fun. The girls everywhere were going crazy over Justin. Sarah just kept looking around watching all of them until she finally got up and started dancing around too.

And of course Megan had a great time. It was a dream come true for her. She is such a huge music fan!

So my new poll is about teen personalities. Who would you most like to meet in person? Only one answer is allowed. Thanks in advance for participating.

Have a wonderful Wednesday everyone!
