This weekend…something amazing happened.

I was watching one of my friends race at one of the biggest triathlons of the year – he actually WON the entire thing – when I saw…drumroll please…

Andy Baldwin. Former Bachelor. An Officer and a Gentleman.


I first noticed him sprinting by my brother and I at the end of the 10K run and knew it was him immediately. Underneath the layers and layers of sweat and dirt, at a triathlon of all places, I recognized his long eyelashes, crazy blue eyes, and six pack abs from watching his season…oh, let’s say four and a half years ago.

Boy oh boy do I sound like a stalker.

But he was one of my favoriteeee bachelors ever…so that’s justifiable, right??

After the race, I saw him walking by again and just haddd to do something.

I first started snapping pictures of him as he walked by. REAL COOL.

Maybe I should pursue a career as a paparazzi?

To further embarrass myself, I thennnn proceeded to chase him down and very collectedly (not) said, “Are you Andy Baldwin???”

So smooth, Star.

“Yes I am…how do you know me?”

“I am a HUGE bachelor fan. Can I pleaseee take a picture with you?”

And THAT is how it happened.

Please don’t think I’m crazy!

And guess how we topped off the day.

With this:

The most amazing, sugary meringue in the world, filled with passion fruit cream and piles and piles of the most delicious fresh fruit. AMAZING.

Have a great day ladies! Don’t forget to enter this giveaway!

  1. How lucky! That dessert looks AMAZING!! I had meringue with fruit over it for the first time at a friends house this past summer. It was delicious!

    I probably would have been way more awkward than you were! I’ve had my fair share of celebrity encounters.

    Awww….man I totally need to get back into watching TV. I’m losing my “hipness” when I first read who you saw (before seeing your pics) I was thinking you were referring to some Baldwin brother (as in Alec Baldwin, etc) Buhahahahaha! However, I will have to say Mr Andy is a cutie! I love that you had the guts to talk to him:)

  9. Good for you.. the picture is great! I have to say, I have my eyes on that meringue deliciousness. Looks amazing!

  10. You are so stinkin’ cute! and that dessert looks heavenly.
