Peter's Charity Autograph Session at The Mall of Monroe! Plus the Meeting of Missy and Judy!


Today Peter Facinelli was signing autographs and taking pictures with fans for a charity event at the grand reopening of the Frenchtown Square Mall in Monroe, Michigan. Fellow twifan Judy and I went and spent a wonderful 6 hours in line, but OH was it worth it. It was also worth the $25 for the autograph and $40 for the picture.


The day started out with a two and a half hour drive to Monroe, Michigan for the charity signing. I meet up with Judy outside Bath and Body works. As we near the crowded section of the mall where Peter was, we stop a girl in a long line and ask her what line it was. She was in the line to receive the picture she took with Peter. So we go to find the end of the REAL line....which was down the hall, around a corner, out the door, and down the outside of the mall.

We catch up with Judy's daughter Beth in line and end up behind a few cheerleaders and a bartender who will be our companions for the next 6 hours. After a little while of standing in line, Judy and I go inside to take pictures of Peter while he is signing autographs. He is WAY hotter in person than on TV (in my opinion). Off to the side of the stage where he was at, a few young girls were screaming " I love you" to Peter. He stops, throws them some candy and waves. A lady brought her two twin baby girls and took a cute picture with Peter holding one and her holding the other. We decide to go back, and as we do, we hear that everyone who is not inside the building by 4 will most likely not be able to get an autograph or a picture with Peter. That meant us. We were sad, but still soldiered on.

Still waiting in line, we get to talking with the cheerleaders and Yvette, the bartender. Her and I decide to go in so she can get some pictures of Peter and we hear someone from the mall security say that Peter has decided to stay 4 extra hours...until the mall closed. He is so nice! We go back and find that we are almost inside the building.

After a few hours in line, Judy and I go back to see Peter and he grabs a microphone. He announces to everyone that even if he has to sign autographs out in the parking lot, he will make sure everyone there gets an autograph. One girl tells him her mom is off to side of the stage and to say hi, so he jumps down and gives her mom a big hug. He is really a great person.


Finally we get to buy our ticket for our photo/autograph. By then I had my lines all worked out. When I would talk to Peter I was say, "Hi. You're the first celebrity I have ever met. Can I have a hug?" When we are almost up there, a mom brings her little daughter up, who is sleeping. Peter takes the picture with the mom while the girl slept on his shoulder, provoking "awww's" from the crowd. We get up there and what I say is "Hi! I want a hug!" NOT quite what I had planned. I have to take the picture again because I blinked. Here are some pictures of me and Peter :




I get off stage real quick to snap some pictures of Judy and Beth with Peter and go to stand with Yvette and the cheerleaders in the picture line. The picture guy keeps reminding us to stay back as he prints off our pictures. He takes our name sticky notes (so that Peter can know who to sign it to), and hands them up to Peter. He takes his time, allowing a few girls to take pictures with him and going into the waiting line, high 5-ing the last bit of waiting fans, before he signs our pictures. We stay for a few more minutes before we head our separate ways.

I was there as well!!!! I got there at 9:45 and was near the front of the line!!! I made it up to him a little after 2. I was there with my 3 young daughters. My oldest got a pic with him and was brave enough to ask for a hug! He signed my Twilight Chp. 16 "Carlisle" and also signed my daughters Alex's Lemonade Stand pin. He gave my 2 youngest high 5's and told me I had a beautiful family. I then told him I was headed to NYC this week for a special Twi-MOM's premiere where dinner w him will be auctioned off:)

I was there with my cousin Kelsie. We had the best time! We got there by 8:30 am, and stood in line until 2:00 when we finally got our chance to meet him. He was really an amazingly sweet guy! He signed the paper towels me and KElsie brought for him as a gift. It was so cool!
