They really ARE just like us...

And, no, I was NOT there!!! ::sniff sniff:: 

Seriously! How much time do I spend talking about Brooksby Farm on this blog?! How often do I go there?!? And the one day...the ONE gorgeous fall day that we decide to stay home look who decided to spend the afternoon at Brooksby Farm......

Yes! You are seeing that correctly!!! It is not some kind of blog illusion. That is, for real, in the flesh, out amongst the apples and pumpkins.....
TOM CRUISE!!!!!
That's right! That is Maverick himself, rocking the Wayfarers, at my beloved Brooksby Farm!!!
And I. was. not. there.

{{{sigh}}}
Yes, there is Tom...with a pumpkin...from Brooksby Farm...
And where was I? HOME! Right around the corner! While I was looking at pictures of him and his family and other "stars" in my latest copy of Us Weekly a real live "Stars...They're Just Like Us" feature was playing out right here in Peabody.
(if you read Us Weekly you will know what I am talking about...)

Oh, did I mention this was a Cruise family outing at Brooksby? Yep, that's Katie. And yeah, there's little Suri, too.

The guy really does have a mega-watt smile. He is not even my favorite actor but you gotta admit he does make quite a few entertaining movies. I have always enjoyed most of his movies, at least. 

Since I wasn't there ::sniff sniff:: I can't take credit for these pictures. Credit belongs to my old friend Michelle. She works there during the season (she is the cutie with the long hair and Great Pumpkin t-shirt in the pic above). Michelle and I went to summer camp together for years! Anywho, most of these pics are taken by her or by other people at Brooksby that day. I checked with Michelle before using these since they were on her Facebook page.

Oh in case you were sitting here wondering if TomKat just woke up one day and said, "Hey! let's go to Peabody and check out that Brooksby Farm place," well, perhaps they did. But they have been in the Boston area for a while. He and Cameron Diaz have been filming a movie here for a couple months now.

Man!! That just bites!! That would have been so much fun to see him in person! Katie doesn't looks so happy in the pictures...I wonder if she was annoyed at all the pictures...

Wow that's pretty exciting. I would be bummed too. I love Tom Cruise the actor. Our favorite movie is "The Firm". Maybe next time;)

Tanya said...

How cool, Tom Cruise, huh? Brooksby Farm...I think I have that place slated to check out for the wedding! I'm digging the Smith Barn!

Jingle said...

Sorry you missed it! Top Gun is my favorite movie of ALL TIME!!!! With all the filming around here lately, we are seeing a lot more stuff like this! My sister ran into Adam Sandler in Boston not too long ago, too. They chatted for awhile.

That's really neat! I'd be bummed if I missed it, too. Speaking of Tom Cruise - I watched Top Gun for like the first time in 10 years last week - boy did I not remember that movie being corny! Stopping by from SITS :)

The Only Girl said...

Dang! So close and yet so far. Sorry you missed them.

(just dropping by from SITS)

Ms Bibi said...

Ooh, I am so so so sorry you missed it. I am crying little tears for you my friend...I would be upset too.

At least you have pretty pictures of that smile.

You poor dear - to miss out on this is a tragedy.

One of my friends got a text (in the middle of Bible study) about a group of co-workers going to party at a bar. She was pregnant at the time (and in the middle of Bible study) so she declined. The next day she found out that George Clooney (who had been filming a movie in town) showed up at the bar and her co-workers partied with him until the wee hours of the morning. BUMMER!

Darn it all! I wish you had been there!

I'm so jealous! I've always liked Tom Cruise, even though he's a little odd. He does make entertaining movies and he looks great in those pics. I secretly hope that celebs look like horrid trolls without the airbrushing, but I guess not. Le sigh.

Shore Debris said...

Thank you so much for the compliments and passing my info off to your friend in Raleigh - You've made my day!

Me and Katie are BFF (she does not yet know this) because we were pregnant with our first children at the same time. She had Suri on the 18th and I had Alex on the 20th.

I would DIE if I saw her....

Suckie! I'm so sorry. I would be so miffed too. Man, it would be nice to see that smile in person....hmmm.
