As if she knew about our love for “Gilmore Girls,” First Lady Michelle Obama had a very productive meeting with none other than Rory Gilmore before she embarked on a tour to promote her “Let Girls Learn” initiative.

In a video shared by the the official “Gilmore Girls” Twitter page captioned, “Just a couple of girls talking about books,” Alexis Bledel, as the beloved Rory, arrives to the White House to give the FLOTUS some book options so she could take on her trip.

“I know you’re going to need a great book to read on your trip, so I brought a few choices,” says Rory to the First Lady. “I didn’t know what mood you’d be in, so I brought all of Shakespeare because you can’t go wrong with the Bard.”
