Chances are that if someone told you about 'Chewbacca Mom', you'd know exactly who they were talking about. Candace Payne is the woman behind the mask in a video that has garnered more than 175 million views. It was streamed while Payne sat in the parking lot after buying the mask, it was instant magic. You really can't help but laugh....and maybe cry from laughing. She was so popular that Hasbro even made a Chewbacca Mom action figure!!

Since posting that video back in May 2016, she wrote a book called "Laugh It Up!", and has been traveling the country promoting her book and speaking at different event. According to the Idaho Statesman, she's going to be making a stop here in Boise, TONIGHT!  She's scheduled to give the keynote speech at the Smart Money, Smart Women Conference at the Boise Centre.

Unfortunately, registration for tonight's event is closed, but maybe we'll see her out and about in the Treasure Valley!
