Disclosure: I am being provided with all-expenses paid trip to LA. No compensation is being received for this trip and all the run-on sentences, use of parenthesis and other typos are exclusively mine.
It was a typical Wednesday night. I left work a few minutes early because I had to run to the grocery store. It seems some people in this house think that cereal is not an appropriate choice for dinner. As I’m waiting in line to check out, I started my usual routine. First I read all the covers of the gossip magazines (what? Kim and Kayne are breaking up?), then I contemplated buying a candy bar or two (which I never do…) and finally I checked my emails. Usually it’s delete, delete, delete but not this time. THIS time I saw the subject line that made my heart skip a beat: Disney & Marvel Invite You to Los Angeles.
What?! Me? Was I really going on a trip to LA to attend the IRON MAN 3 PREMIERE or was this some awful April Fool’s Day joke a few days late? I verified and yes, it was TRUE. 24 other bloggers and myself will spend three days living the good life in LA. We’ll be staying at the Sheraton Universal Hotel, known as the “hotel of the stars.” I’ve been looking over their website and every thing is top notch. The guest rooms look comfortable and inviting and those Sheraton Sweetsleeper beds? Heaven!
We also get to do fun things such as tour and have breakfast at the world famous El Capitan Theatre and Soda Fountain and get our pictures taken (or as they say in the South, get our pictures made) with Tony Stark at Madame Tussauds Wax Museum! I’ve only been to LA one other time and unfortunately, didn’t make it to either of these places. It’s definitely been on my “things I’m going to do” list.
But most of exciting for me is the chance to feel like a celebrity for just a moment and get to attend the premier of Iron Man 3 and walk the red carpet. I’m giddy with excitement and haven’t been able to focus on anything else! And if the stars are aligned (pun totally intended), I may even get to interview some of the A-Listers in this film. I have so many things do to get ready (hair, nails and oh my gosh, what the heck am I going to wear?!) but just as much fun for me, I get to meet some of the awesome bloggers that I’ve been chatting with online. The awesome Becky who keeps my site up and running, the highly successful Amy, founder of MomSpark Media and many more! I feel like a kid waiting for Christmas morning and even created a countdown timer!
Make sure to follow me on Twitter and the hashtag #IronMan3Event to keep up with all the fun! Iron Man 3 opens in theaters May 3th. Plan your date night now!
