Vanna White’s Surprise at the DMV

March 8th, 2013

This is a guest post from Vanna White.

I imagine that most people think my everyday life is glamorous because I’m on TV six days a week wearing beautiful gowns.  But the fact is that my days are typically devoted to my two teenage children and doing errands like shopping for yarn (yes, I like to buy it in the stores) at my local craft store. Here is a story from a typical day last week.

I took my daughter, Gigi, to the DMV to take her drivers test.  As I was waiting for her to pass I walked by a lady crocheting.  She recognized me and came up to me and asked me to sign the label on the ball of yarn she was working with.  I was thrilled to see that it was a ball of Vanna’s Choice!! She was so excited! Not only did that incident make my day, my daughter passed her exam too! Yeah!

    Vanna is one of my favorite stars. She is so down to earth and such a good role model for young people. Also love her yarn!

    What a wonderful feeling hearing about someone bringing there talent along with them! I thought I was the only one, cause people look at me & see what I’m doing, but hardly ever comment. It was so nice that she got to meet Vanna in such a busy place. Vanna is very sweet to autograph her yarn label! What a keepsake! Congratulations Gigi! You’re growing up.

    That lucky girl was me! Thank you for being so friendly and reminding me that proceeds from your yarn help St. Jude Children’s Hospital. Congratulations Gigi! Drive safe =^)

    This is a lovely story! I’m so glad she choose to work with Lion Brand yarns. I think the yarns are of wonderful quality. And bonus points for the generous charity donations; the kids need it.
