A Gift For Eva!!

Have you ever met someone and seemed to have hit it off right on the spot? Well, for my husband and I (Aunt Peggy too) we met Andrew "BenSpark" Bennett. I had known him online for awhile--ran into him over and over during one of the early "Puzzle" challenges. But what a super nice guy! We talked to him for awhile at the Tao party--until we were all called over to the stage to kick off the party--we abandoned our watch over Drew's water bottle--and it was immediately picked up by the waitstaff--whoops!

Anyway--Sunday evening we headed to the airport for our midnight flight and as we headed back to eat- there was a familiar face over at the "Recharge" desk. I said (rather loudly) "Hey, that looks like Andrew Bennett of the BenSpark.com!" I said it that way so that if it wasn't him--the guy wouldn't necessarily know I was talking to him--but of course, it was him--and we got a final "goodbye" in.

We passed the gift shop and they had this darling little pink puppy in the window--so we ducked in to get it for Drew's new baby Eva. As we headed back to give it to him, he was gone. So it became a gift for Blake instead.

The cool thing about this little puppy, it lets you name a star. So we headed over this afternoon and named our puppy and our star. Since we couldn't give Eva the puppy--we decided we would give her a Star.

We named the puppy-- Princess Blake-- we named the star-- EvaGrace-- and we chose the Andromeda constellation. The Andromeda constellation was chosen for a couple of reasons-- first, it's the Princess constellation-- and with Blake and Eva-- I think it's only fitting. Secondly--Andromeda is a very "comic book" sounding name--I guess from the whole Star Trek thing--but I was going for more of a "Cybertron" theme--and if that didn't just click with you--then you don't know the BenSpark!!

So Drewski...here is the location of your little girls star...

Andromeda 2H 32M 38.42s 40 12'52.75"

It was really fun--I may have to find these little stuffed animals for my kids too!

Robyn, what a really sweet thing to do! I love having Drew's Photo-A-Day on my blog so I can look at Eva's adorable little face every time I log in :)

Wow, that was really sweet of you guys. I totally appreciate it and I will certainly tell little Eva all about it so we can look to the skies and see it. Very very cool. You guys were so very nice too and I was very happy to talk to you and Mike and Peggy at PostieCon. Next year you'll get to meet Mrs. BenSpark.
