Honey Boo Boo Meets Miranda Lambert, Travels to Chicago and Tries Bling Water! (Photos)

It’s incredible what can happen in just a few months’ time. Last March, hardly anyone knew little Alana Thompson, much less her family nickname or her coupon-clipping mom.

Now, Honey Boo Boo, Mama June and the rest of her happily redneck family are known worldwide, and Alana and June are in demand on the talk-show and awards circuit.  Even other celebrities are eager to meet the young reality star!

June shared some new pictures on the official Honey Boo Boo Facebook page recently that show how much life has changed for them. For instance, not only did the whole family attend a Miranda Lambert concert – they got to meet the country star herself.

This week, Alana and June were in Chicago for an unnamed publicity event (yes, Honey Boo Boo kept up with her schooling). They had a water view from their hotel room, tried some designer bottled water and met several other well-known personalities.

Here are some of the pics the beautimous June shared with fans!

    "Only Alana would pick the most expensive water in the room cause it was all blinged out," laughs June. The bottle cost (ouch!) $25 and "it taste[d] no different from any other spring water." They took the bottle home as a souvenir.
