Weekly Recap / Stacking the Shelves (60) Where I Spazz More Than Last Week!! For Good Reason!

*Stacking the Shelves is hosted by Tynga's Reviews

I know that usually today I post Book Girls, but I couldn't concentrate enough to make a post. Fair warning, this post is going to be a bit spazzy!! Okay, a lot spazzy!! Remember last week when I was freaking out about seeing Robert Downey Jr. while filming? Well, this week he filmed in town for a few days and I got to meet him!! I admit I walked up to the set way too many times, stood around for hours, and even at home was pacing around and looking out my window when I couldn't be up there. It was all totally worth it though. Not only did I get to see him (he's totally gorgeous guys!!) I got his autograph and shook his hand!! And then since we had been up there a few times, on the last day, he actually recognized my daughter. (And other people who had been up there a few times. That shows he pays attention too!)

So anyways, my life is totally made that I got to meet my number one celebrity crush!! He looks just as amazing in real life as he does on film!! (Though, he's shorter than I thought he would be.) And he is seriously so nice. He made sure to come out and sign autographs every time he was filming and made sure to get the kids first. He's a guy who really cares about his fans!! Okay, so onto the books. I am not doing my weekly posts or search terms because honestly, I'm still spazzing and distracted. There will be pics at the end of my post from my exciting week!!


Books Mentioned

Review
(Books not mentioned in vlog that came after I filmed, but before this post went up.)

Thank you so much to Macmillan, Entangled, Penguin, and Spencer Hill Press!!!

Now onto the pics I know you are all dying to see!!


On Tuesday when he was headed over to sign autographs before going to get ready to film!!


Signing autographs! 


Yup!! That is Robert Downey Jr's autograph!! (I also got my cellphone case and inside of my purse signed!!)


This was after he filmed for a while on Tuesday. He came out in the pouring rain to greet his fans!


See how he's looking down? He is looking at my daughter about to come over and ask her what her name is!!! I look a little crazy! Haha!! Thinking of crazy, someone got a funny pic with me in the back (looking a bit creepy) and posted it on twitter.


He's actually asking my daughter her name right here!! Look at that smile!! *swoons*
He signed inside my purse and shook my hand after this too and I thought I would die!! 


 This was when he arrived on set on Thursday! In his own car even. That's how you know if he's on set. His car will be there!! (It's a sexy car!) I was going to post a pic of it, but I was too lazy to photoshop out his license plate number so I could.


This last one was on Thursday too after filming for a bit. His last day in town filming. Yes, I was right next to him when I took that!!

I actually almost missed him. My daughter was thirsty, so I had her stay with my next door neighbor while I ran home quick to grab her a drink and as I was headed back out the door he came out and my neighbor texted me! (I totally thought she was messing with me!!) So yeah, this week has been the most epically awesome week ever!! He is the one celebrity who I would have wanted to meet more than anyone else so this has been so amazing!! I actually went back up after I did this post and stayed until they were done and started taking down the sets. (at like midnight on Thursday night) It feels like something is missing now. I have been so excited taking walks to go see Robert Downey Jr. and now it seems so quiet and sad without all the filming. I swear I have a RDJ hangover. Lol!! It seems so surreal that if his autograph was not in a frame right in front of me, I would wonder if this all really happened or if I was hallucinating! It was still the best week in my life!!

I would love to know what awesome books you got this week so leave me a link. I know I was a sucky blog commenter this week, but I think you can understand why!

  1. Awesome!!!! So glad you got to meet him and get his autograph!!! Good job! Yeah usually if you just hang out on the set long enough eventually you can get some good pictures and autographs.
    Great haul! I really want to read Uncharted by Tracey Garvis Graves!

    1. He was already my favorite actor so knowing that he is so awesome and friendly just makes him so much more great!! He's isn't one of those actors who hides away and doesn't want to be seen. He really made it a point to greet his fans.
      And yay for the books I got too. ;)

    1. On Friday I was like a zombie lol!! After all of the excitement and nothing to look forward to on Friday I was so exhausted and mopey haha!! The good thing is, now I can actually focus on reading since I got none done this week. How in the world was I supposed to read with RDJ down the street?!!

  12. Yay -- all your stalking paid off!
    I saw RDJ once at intermission at the theater when I very first came to NY -- he was with SJP. That was a long time ago! And he looks just the same!

    1. If I didn't have his autograph framed and sitting right on my computer desk I would wonder if it really happened! It's so surreal!

  20. I know what you mean by the hangover feeling. I feel like that every year when Big Brother season ends and I have spent all season watching the live feeds and getting to know these people. The season is about to start up again so I am SUPER excited. And I am so glad you got to meet your celebrity crush/idol. RDJ would be incredibly awesome to meet.

    As for books, I kind of wish I had requested Engines of the Broken World and I don't know why I didn't, but...I have a ton so I am not complaining. Enjoy your books and autographs, girlie!

    1. I seriously felt so empty for like 3 days after they were done filming. Okay, I still do a little lol!! It was such an amazing experience and I can't believe it actually happened.

      I didn't remember if I had requested Engines of the Broken World, but then I checked and I had. I think I was worried about the religious aspect of it. It really does sound awesome though.

  21. OMG!!! How COOL is that! Dude, you totally DID NOT spaz out as much as I would have!! It looks like you were trying to hold back your excitement on the vlog, I mean I would of been totally crazy screaming o.0 So AWESOME that he was in Mass. filming and so close to where you live. I bet you can't wait to see the movie! Books, what books, it's all about RDJ this week... Oh, BTW my daughter totally went ballistic after I told her Iron Man was in Mass. She's into superheroes right now, and she was FREAKING out over your vlog & pics.


    I'll be sending you an e-mail this week. I finished Between the Devil & the Deep Blue Sea and am ready to part with it.

    Smooches chick, have a great week and maybe you'll get to see more celebrities in the future!! :D

    1. Love your comment!! I totally had calmed myself before filming my vlog. And the kiddo was down for a nap so I was trying not to scream and freak out all over the place!! I knew that they were filming in a few towns around me, but when I found out that they would be filming right down the street where I could just walk to all day long, I was spazzing!!

      Ohh I will keep an eye out for your email! :)
