I am heading to the west coast once again. What I find funny is that in my whole life time I had never been farther west then Chicago. Though I’ve traveled north into Canada when I lived in Michigan there was just nothing to take me west. Since May of this year this will go on record as my third trip to California. The first trip was to LA for The Biggest Loser Finale trip that I won entering a blog contest. The second, sponsored by Brookstone, was to San Diego to attend BlogHer11’. This third trip is just as exciting.
I have been invited by Disney to see some movie magic once again in LA. A group of influential bloggers and myself were invited to the press junkets of two amazing films soon to be released. The first of which is Real Steel starring Hugh Jackman. I will arrive in LA on September 24th and attend a pre-screening of the movie. The following day I will be attending a round table discussion with several actors from the movie, including Hugh Jackman himself (isn’t that just exciting enough by itself?)
We were also invited to preview some scenes from The Muppets, a film my daughter is eagerly awaiting to come out, and take a tour of the Jim Henson Studios. We will also have the chance to attend the round table discussion of this movie as well and it will include Jason Segel, Kermit, and Miss Piggy herself.
My only regrets about this trip is that I will be flying solo once again to the west coast. I am disappointed that I will not be able to take my hubby with me. After our trip to LA the first time we decided it is a city we would like to return to , to enjoy some of the tourist like attractions that we were unable to the first time. However I will not let that stop me from having a wonderful time with my fellow bloggers. I look forward to sharing my experience with you when I return.
