Omg I am still in shock. I won a contest from a local radio station here in Chicago to meet Josh Groban after they interviewed him on the air. I could not believe I won. My mom called me at work and told me I had won. I just could not believe that I won. Out of this whole entire city and surrounding areas, only 15 people won. And I was one of them!!!

I was pretty nervous yesterday morning. When he came into the room I thought, wow, he looks shorter and skinnier in person. But he still looked absolutely amazing. He seemed just as nice and funny in real life as he does on t.v. and dvd. He really was just the nicest guy ever. I was pretty star struck when I met him. All I really wanted was a picture with him so I could frame it and put it in my room. It's something I've wanted for years...

Anyway, everyone made a line so we could all meet him. I was starting to get nervous and excited. He's been my favorite singer for years and I had always dreamt of meeting him. And now that dream has come true!

So when it was my turn I handed the guy my camera to take a picture, and then I walked up to Josh. (Wow, I can't believe I'm saying that) As i did, he was looking and smiling at me. It just made me feel so good. Then he reached out his hand and shook mine and said "Hi, nice to meet you." And I think I said Hi nice to meet you, too, or something like that. I was a little preoccupied and couldn't think straight. I didn't even tell him my name. lol. Wow, I'm still in shock and I can't believe I met him.

But back to the story...so we took a picture together. He put his arm around me and then i put my arm around him, and we smiled at my camera. I was thinking "Oh my God, Josh Groban has his arm around me. Holy crap." And then I asked him to sign my tote bag. (i was happy that I didn't freak out and forget to ask him for the autograph!) So he signed it and after that I don't really remember what happened. I think I said thanks and walked away. lol. I even forgot to get my camera back! But luckily my aunt was there and got it for me. But oh my. What a day. He was just so amazing and I feel blessed to have met him. I kinda wish I said more, but I still got more than I could have ever asked for. I got to meet him, get a picture with him, and get his autograph. And for me, that was enough. I love you Josh!!!
