Good morning from LA!
I flew into LA yesterday morning for the #ABCFamilyEvent and #IntoTheWoodsEvent. It has been a whirlwind 24 hours already and the trip is just getting started.
The day started off hanging out with some amazing blogging friends at the hotel and just catching up. We took an Uber car to In and Out Burger to have the quintessential California lunch.
The #ABCFamilyEvent kicked off last night with dinner and a gift exchange celebrating the 25 days of Christmas on ABC Family!
I had a total pinch me moment as we pulled into the Disney lot and ABC Building. OH my! These are buildings I have seen on line and on tv but never thought I would be visiting. We had our dinner in the ABC Building and it was so cool to walk the halls and see the old photos of iconic ABC TV shows.
Dinner was a holiday celebration that was a ton of fun. We even did a gift exchange with gifts representing our home states or towns. I brought in local Applets & Cottlets candy and of course Starbucks to represent Washington State. I received a lovely Tennessee gift with Goo Goo Clusters and moonshine. I can’t wait to see what John says about the moonshine.
After dinner we had the chance to veiw the upcoming season premiers of Mellissa and Joey and the great show Baby Daddy. Both of these shows will be premiering in January and the episodes were really funny!
It was a great night hanging out with wonderful bloggers and just enjoying being in an iconic building.
I had big plans for a great night sleep before a busy day today but that was cut short around 3:30am. Someone decided it would be fun to pull the hotel fire alarm at 3:30 in the morning. During this event I learned a few things about myself. I sleep a lot deeper than I thought I do and it takes me a bit to realize the voices going of in my head were not actually in my head they were the hotel speaker system.
I instantly grabbed for my phone, purse and then had to remember where in the world I put my room key.
It was a short night after this but one of those moments you realize that you may need to be a bit more organized in hotel rooms.
Today is a crazy fun, busy day filled with a few pinch me moments. We are starting the day off at the Walt Disney Studios and meeting legendary animator Flloyd Norman for a drawing session and Q&A about 101 Dalmations. Mr Norman was one of the original animators on 101 Dalmations!
We then head to an event I never thought I would get to see. We are visiting the CBS TV lots and watching the filming of Melissa and Joey, Baby Daddy plus we get to interview the cast. EEK!
Tonight to cap off a crazy amazing day we are viewing Into the Woods at the official Acadamy Theater the Samuel Goldwyn Theater and attending a Q&A with the cast of Into the Woods.
Someone please pinch me please!
