IDEX Marie Osmond Brunch 2007

We got to the brunch at 8am (1 hour before the event) and there were 50 people already there. The first person in line had been there since 6:30am. Once the doors opened we made our way to the front right hand table which was completely empty but not reserved, so we had a great spot for pictures, right in front of the podium. 

After we got settled, we had breakfast, probably the low of the day, nothing like years past and they ran out of food before everyone even got what little they had. It was more of a continental breakfast than a brunch, with coffee/tea, bagels, fruit & egg sandwich. I need to diet anyway :)

Marie mentioned she was really sick the night before, but was feeling better today.  Though she didn't do as much talking at the brunch as she usually did, I think she may have still been feeling a little under the weather.  But you would never have known it, she held up all day, beautifully!!  She sure knows how to make her fans happy.  Thanks Marie and hope you are feeling better.

Marie was wonderful as usual. Her Friend; Ranelle Wallace gave a really inspirational speech and they gave away 16 dolls by the ticket stubs, we didn't win as usual :( Then at the end she said we could have the chair decorations and the person with the closest birthday at each table could have the doll in the centerpiece. I got so excited and raised my hands, then realize, maybe one of the other 9 people at the table had a birthday TODAY or yesterday, but no, it was mine, my first win of anything in my life :) She is a Sabrina Fairy Tot, cute for a doll :) I had my picture taken with Marie, Sabrina and my Conehead before we left the Brunch.

Unlike in the past, there was no restriction on pictures. She showed a little slideshow of some of the dolls and I tried to take pictures of them. The pictures seem a little white because of the screen, but they generally have pretty good detail.
