Hollywood Days - Alyson Hannigan at Home

Pin It Now! If you are new to my blog, on Wednesdays I post about my experience in Hollywood as a former child/teen actress. If you want to start at the beginning of these posts go here.
This was originally posted in November of 2010.

When I was in So Cal for my book/speaking stuff I saw a lot of old friends from all different time periods of my life. Like friends of the late 80s/early 90s who indulged with me in stone washed, zipper pants, Reebok hightops, scrunchies, bang nests, and the like. Alyson Hannigan was one of those friends, although I don't know that I ever caught her wearing a scrunchy. You can check out some of our dashing outfits on my previous post about Alyson.

One afternoon I went by Alyson's house for a visit. You probably know her from How I Met Your Mother because that show seems to have quite a large following.

I first met Alyson on the audition for "The New Lassie" 22 years ago!!!

She was one of my best friends in Hollywood when I lived in L.A. from 89' to 92'. We lost touch for a while, reconnected briefly when I was down at UCLA, lost touch again, and recently reconnected thanks to Twitter!

I think it had been at least 14 years since we had seen each other. But it was like no time had passed. It was so great to meet her husband and adorable daughter. And when I say adorable I mean, exceptionally cute. Off the charts. Full of facial expressions, a confident head nod, and a large vocabulary for a toddler. They are a tight-knit family and Alyson and Alexis seem like wonderful parents. **update - Baby #2 is on it's way!

And they care about purified water and have done their water homework, which makes them kindred spirits with Shiloh and me. You might remember our romantic trip to the Penta water factory on our 10-year anniversary.
