My heart was racing as we neared her in line. I’m a huge Jensen/Dean fan, so of course I follow their family closely, and it didn’t take long for me to adore Danneel. I’d heard nothing but good things from those that’d met her, and I was excited to see what she was like for myself.
I approach her with a (probably) shit-eating grin on my face. “Hiiii, Danneel!!”
“Heeyyy,” she said brightly. I stepped toward her timidly.
“Can I have a hug?” I ask.
“Sure!” she smiles, opening her arms. Oh my goodness she was so tiny but gave the best hug.
I step back. “I just want to say, on behalf of all women, PLEASE start a fashion blog,” I grin. She looks flattered. “I follow your social media and you always look so cute! I’d just love to hear where you get your stuff.”
“Aw, thank you,” she says, still looking flattered. “Sometimes I come downstairs and Jensen and Gino see what I’m wearing and go, ‘Uhhh, no’.” She laughs.
“What??” I demand in disbelief. “Girl, you do you. You always look on point. I’ve been dying to ask where you get those headbands you wear, I have a big forehead so I need those in my life.”
“What? You look so good, your hair looks so pretty,” she says, and I melt a little inside, because Misha had told me that morning that I have pretty hair; and even if it was just for a moment, I felt like I had my life together. Gino chooses that moment to cut in for a second and compliment my sweater (which is furry), and Danneel agrees.
“Aw, thank you!” I gush.
“Sure! And honestly I just kind of get stuff everywhere,” she continues to answer my question. “I shop at old-fashioned stores a lot.”
“Like thrift shops and stuff?”
She nods. “Yeah, and I buy wayyy too many shoes. Half of my shirts and stuff have holes in them but whatever.”
I smile so big. She is so relatable and chill it’s ridiculous. “Who cares if they have holes? As long as you feel cute, that’s what matters.”
I turn toward my friend who’d been holding my camera waiting on me to shut my big mouth 😂 We take a few pics, when they both compliment my “legit” camera (Sony alpha) and I continue walking down the table toward the end where Gino was.
I ask if they’d brought any FBB sweatshirts or hats, they say that no, unfortunately they only brought tees because of how expensive shipping was. They mentioned some ungodly amount and I whistled.
“Well I ordered a t shirt as soon as they were posted,” I tell them. “Do y’all know when they’d be coming in? At the bottom of the page it said they’d ship on the 30th.”
“Oh, yeah, they should definitely ship out by then,” Danneel says. She makes a stinky face. “But I cant tell you exactly when it’ll come in. The platform we’ve been using for online orders has been, uh, giving us some issues. Safe to say we won’t be using that platform much longer.”
I thanked them and told them it was amazing to meet them. They returned it.
Danneel is so laid back and sassy and I love her; I can see now how her and Jensen get along so well, and why he calls her his best friend; she’s so super easy to talk to.
It was a good weekend❤️
