Prelude to NashCon 2011

Hi, my name is Crystal and I fangirl over the TV show Supernatural. If you know me at ALL you will know that this is my absolute favorite show and if you call me while it is on, I won't answer. If you want to do something the night of a new episode, I will consider your offer but don't be surprised if I say I'm busy.

Ever since I heard about certain movies/TV shows having conventions, I of course looked to see if there was one for Supernatural. You can imagine how giddy I was when I found out these really existed! I, Crystal, could have the chance to meet the cast one day.

For the last few years I have been STALKING Creation's website hoping and praying that Salute to Supernatural would have a stop near me. Until recently, the closest stop to Birmingham was Chicago. If you're any good at geography, you will know that this is not exactly close.

I know, I know, a true fan would drive the 11-12 hours and be happy but I can't really do that.

So imagine the squee-iness that happened when I found out they were coming to the South..and that it was only a THREE HOUR drive. Cue the jumping up and down and high-pitched noises coming from the other side of this computer. YES, that was me.

After mentioning NashCon, my internet friend and fellow Supernatural freak, Courtney, and I talked and decided we were going to go. After days of trying to get my husband to say whether he was going with or not, we finally had a yes from him and we were able to order our tickets.

To say that it was fun is a serious understatement. All four of us (Courtney's husband came with her too) had a blast and I spent most of the weekend laughing. Since it was so awesome, I'm going to post about each day so I can share it with you and also have my first con documented.

Have you ever been to a con? What was it for? If you haven't, would you?
