I am not usually star struck. However, if you know anything about me and my ONE CELEBRITY CRUSH, you know that meeting Matt Lauer and getting this awesome photo is such a bucket list accomplishment.
When I planned my New York City Fall girls trip, I knew my one goal was to not only go to The Today Show, but somehow get a photo with Matt Lauer. When I found out that Coldplay was in concert on The Plaza while in NYC, I thought that would be the perfect day to meet Matt plus see one of my favorite bands play.
That Friday morning, we woke up at 4 a.m. and were at Rockefeller Center by 4:45 a.m. At that time, there were already THREE blocks of people in line (they began lining up at 1 a.m.) and well over 1,000 people waiting to see Chris Martin and the band.
Oh my. I was immediately crushed. How could I possibly get close enough to see the concert, let alone meet Matt Lauer?
So, on Tuesday morning, I woke up early and tried again. When I arrived at The Plaza at 4:45 a.m. the second time, I WAS FIRST IN LINE. Yahoo! Even had fun meeting new friends during the long wait until 7 a.m. when the show began. I had a great front row spot and worked my magic to get on TV four times. Plus I met Matt and got this awesome picture!
The trip was perfect and great memories were made by all.
