Celebrity Crush: My Date With Justin Bieber (VIDEO)

Well sort of, anyway and let’s face it, made ya’ look! But I got to thinkin’ what exactly would a conversation with the Biebs be like, if he were to show up in my backyard, you know, sans entourage? I’d probably be instantly transformed back to my geeky teenage self, one with long skinny legs that I would kill for now.


Well, thanks to Hallmark, he sort of did come to my house and let me interview him. We had a real heart-to-heart about life and love, though I did most of the talking.


Do you have a teen or preteen who is a jazzed for Justin or are you like me, a secret fan (though that’s not much of a secret now)? Check out Hallmark’s new line of Justin Bieber cards; you’ll be a hero, even if you don’t tape them  to the back of your patio chairs.

I’m thrilled to be partnering with Hallmark in 2012 for its “Life Is A Special Occasion” campaign. Of course, the characters in my rantings are real and the opinions are all my own.

    Not a fan of Biebs, but love how this made me laugh and smile. Note to self, make sure to destroy all evidence of childhood crush videos/photos/items ASAP. This could be used against me in a blog post one day 😉

    This was hilarious! Who needs a CBS studio and crew? I think Justin and his people will love this. As for Barry Manilow, hey I loved the song Mandy too. LOL!

Combing the aisles at Target in search of the best deal on Cheerios, it hit Rene Syler like the stench of a dirty diaper on a hot summer’s day. Not only is perfection overrated its utterly impossible! Suddenly empowered, she figuratively donned her cape, scooped up another taco kit for dinner and Good Enough Mother was born.
