He's well known in his role (as Izzy would say with dreamy eyes) "Chad Dylan Cooper" on Sonny With A Chance on the Disney Channel.
Then like all the Disney stars he made his own Disney movie and sang his own hit song, Starstruck:
Well this "famous" (well in my kid's eyes) was in town this weekend at the Dimond Mall out of all places.. Hubby mentioned that he heard that on the radio and since I have to validate every info he receives.. I googled it. (After all, you can find anything in google).
And it was true! So the plan for the day was do the 5K, go home and get ready to see Sterling Knight! I mean, the lines can't be that big.. who watches Sonny With A Chance in Alaska anyway...
We drive up and head into the mall, for some reason I'm more excited than my kids, well I had Izzy, Jazzy (the neighbor) and Mason (the other neighbor).. my boys found better things to go then catch a glimpse of this superstar.
Apparently everyone and their family was there. The line started from one end of the mall to the other end. There was no way we were gonna get our photos taken with this celebrity. The only way we could see him was by circling the area. We could not stop and take pics because his body guards, Anchorage Police Dept, and the mall cops were there to make sure "If your not in line you gotta keep moving.."
But you know I didn't drive all the way here to get no pics right? So, I bought the kids pretzels, left Mason in charge and told them to sit tight, while I try to get close to him for some pics. It was tough, those body guards see you stop, they tell you to keep moving. So leave it to my cunning skills to blend in with the teen girls that were 3rd up from taking their photo with him standing in line. After all, we had American Eagle sweatshirts on.. and they were all taller than me! I stood behind them, with my camera in hand.. they are giggling, saying "oh he's so cute!" I totally jumped in on their conversation..
"Oh yeah, he totally is.. " I said in that teenagery-lingo.
"And he totally looks different, way cuter.." I said (chewing my gum) How appropriate, I knew my annoying snapping of the gum would come in handy one day.
They quickly turned and asked if I enjoyed the movie Starstruck..
I was in (well I doubt they will let me get in the pic with him, but I'm sure I could grab some quick shots of him from this point).
"I totally enjoyed that movie, it was way good.. I love the part when he was singing solo on the guitar in his backyard.." (So glad I saw that movie four times once.)
"Hey you guys don't mind if I take like some pics while I stand here?"
They replied, "Oh no, for sure.."
While I took advantage and snapped all these blurry photos because I brought the little camera.. ugh! I listened to them giggle and talk about his dreamy eyes and dimples...
I added my two cents before I left..giggling with them.
"...For sure, my favorite episode was when he said, "Which one of you ladies are gonna get me a.. (and they all said it with me).. SAMICH?" and we all laughed..
Good times. In another lifetime, they would so like be like my friends for sure.. (chew, snap, chew).
