taza and husband. (plus their adorable, sleeping kids)

upon waking up today to a fire drill that dragged twin and i out of bed and onto the street in our pj's... i had no clue that a dream of mine (my biggest dream, i might add) would come true. twin graciously accepted a visual merchandising position at west elm a couple weeks back, and was invited to a private book signing for joy cho of oh joy! blog. we quickly realized that her book is one i've been dying for, and is even on my birthday list!

the reason i've wanted this book so badly is because of a very special interview in it with my favorite blogger, naomi davis of rockstar diaries. i can't even begin to describe how much i adore her life, style, and little family. twin came across her blog a few years ago, and ever since...we've been beyond hooked. i've never felt so inspired by a human being before. taza is the reason i started this little blog of my own. 

so...

twin and i arrive, i meet her lovely manager, and we peruse with a couple drinks in hand...hoping, just hoping that taza maybe might possibly be there. i mean, it made sense, right? she is featured in the book, and the book is about the success of bloggers, and she's just about the most successful blogger out there. and then out of the corner of my eye, who steps out of the elevator?  josh, her adorable husband. and then there was taza. with her adorable babies. the whole family came.

before we knew it,  twin and i were talking to josh about school, our bond as twins, and how much we love their blog. then he said, "have you talked to naomi?" we answered, "not yet," to which he said, "follow me." he then escorted us over to his beautiful wife, tapped her on the back, and asked the girls who were hogging her to give us a chance!

and then...twin and i talked to taza. it was crazy, because she asked us more questions about ourselves and our lives than we asked her! she was so sweet, and genuinely interested.  we asked josh to take our picture, and taza even called us beautiful!
naomi and josh are seriously the two sweetest people, so humble and in love! we're a little sad that baby E and samson were sleeping the entire time, but at least their parents are cool, right? ;)
