So, it’s less than a week away. I can’t believe it! I know it’s going to go so fast once that plane lands in LA and I am going to savor every moment! I know some of you are very excited about following my journey to the Monsters University premiere and I sincerely thank you for that! I wanted to give you some more details about the plans!!
Details on What I’ll be Doing (ok, SOME Details!)
I fly out of my local airport Monday morning and will arrive in sunny LA before noon! Early evening we bloggers will arrive at the pre-premiere Tail Gate Party (wearing the MU colors of Royal Blue & White) for MONSTERS UNIVERSITY followed directly by the Premiere Screening at 7:00pm! Tuesday is a day full of something very exciting but I’ve been instructed by the professors to not divulge that information just yet! That gives you even more reason to follow my journey on Instagram and Twitter! 😉
I love shopping. BUT, in all honesty I’ve gained quite a bit of weight since I had Addy and it’s just not as fun anymore since things don’t fit me well. I have managed to go shopping for this event and have found some things that I am hopeful will look great! Here’s a sneak peak at my clothes that are being packed!
I know, I know…you can’t see them very well! Yet another reason to follow me on Twitter and Instagram while I’m in LA! I promise (ugh, did I really just say that!?) to post selfies so you can see my outfits!
So, the outfit on the right is what I have chosen for my tailgate party/premiere outfit. We were told no formal attire because of the tailgating party before the premiere. Oh, and no worres, I do have a royal blue top to go under the sheer top. No flashing will be going on from this mama! 😉
Dilemma: Now that I have these clothes and it’s been nearly two weeks since I’ve purchased them I am feeling like they just may not be good enough. Ugh. I hate that feeling, don’t you? I am thinking more shopping is in store for this weekend. In fact, I know it is because I’ve just remembered I need accessories and SHOES!!!!!
I am beyond thrilled to be able to pack this clutch from Marine Parents! April (great name, huh!?) from Marine Parents was incredibly kind in speeding up this custom order and in shipping in from Japan just so I would have it in time for the trip! She’s the best, really she is! <3
So, I mentioned the pre-premiere Tail Gate Party earlier! This party will take place on Hollywood Boulevard ! EEEKKK!!!! Can you imagine what it will be like!? I am beyond excited to party with my fellow bloggers and even some stars! Take a look at the people who have RSVP’d so far:
From the Film: Billy Crystal, Sean P. Hayes, Joel Murray, Pete Sohn, Charlie Day, Bobby Moynihan, Bonnie Hunt, John Ratzenberger, Noah Johnston, director Dan Scanlon, producer Kori Rae, executive producer John Lasseter.
Special Guests: Gwen Stefani and Gavin Rossdale, Alison Sweeney, Alessandra Ambrosio, Ed Begley Jr., Wayne Brady, Brian Chirigos, Tom Dumont, Kate Flannery, Seth Green, Melissa Joan Hart, Boris Kodjoe & Nicole Ari, Oscar Nunez, Tito Ortiz, Adrian & Natalie Pasdar, Scottie Pippen, Troy Polamalu, Karina Smirnoff.

How exciting is that list!? And finally, after the party is the premiere of Monsters University!!! I am seriously stoked about seeing Sully and Mike again, in college this time! I know this movie will be full of laughter and I honestly can’t wait.
The “Other” Details
So, this is mama’s first trip away from hubby. Like ever. Ok, so I went to visit my family in Ohio once overnight when he couldn’t go. This will be the farthest and longest trip away. I’ve NEVER been away from LA or Addy for this long. Never. I am going to be a bit sad and missing my family, but because I don’t often get mama time, I am going to make sure to enjoy every minute. I may even divulge in a glass of wine…any of my fellow bloggers going to LA care to join me in this splurge? Warning: I haven’t had a drop of alcohol in more than 4 years!!! LOL
Are you getting excited about the premiere of Monsters University!?
