Oprah Trip:: The Beginning

I promised all of you this post and now it's finally here...

Oprah Trip!!!

Oh yes indeed, a whole series of posts dedicated to our incredible, two-day, whirlwind Chicago trip :)

If I believed in the prospect of 'perfection,' this trip came Pretty. Damn. Close. The only thing that would have made it perfect would be:

1. If we actually MET the cast
2. If we had grabbed a taxi to the theater (explanation to come)

Now before I dive deep into this dream-come-true type happenstance, I quickly have to make a note to all my readers that I CANNOT divulge any inner happenings of the rough cut of the Twilight Saga: Eclipse or the inner workings of the Oprah taping.

{I signed a release form and I don't intend to be sued thank you very much}

That being said, I still have some great stories ;)



Once upon a time about two weeks ago, we got a phone call from my sister who was down at college for her last few days before Summer vacation-My mother answered the phone and after a pause, all I heard was, "YOU'RE NOT SERIOUS?!"

Of course when she hung up the phone five minutes later, she wouldn't tell me what was going on. I finally forced it out of her {not really-she sucks at keeping secrets} with these hints:

*"This has been on my bucket list forever!"
*What are you obsessed over?
*Who do I watch everyday at 4:00?

Knowing me, I got the second and third right (Twilight and Oprah), but I didn't put 2+2 together to make 4, so I was a tad confused there for awhile. LOL

I FINALLY got it and we were quite literally freaking out the next two hours before we heard from Krysten again-Those were quite a scary few hours because we thought we weren't going to get the tickets due to the fact that the people called my sister in the middle of one of her finals >.<

Anywho, scary part aside, we got the call, and we were in!

Side Note:: Apparently, my sister had written in on MY behalf because she knew what an OBSESSIVE huge Twilight fan I am...2 YEARS AGO when the first Twilight movie came out. How amazing is that!?

Now for the real hard part(s): Packing and actually getting there. You know when something epic like this happens it's a MUST to get a new outfit! I mean, what kind of woman would I be if I wore something...old!?

Okay, so I totally would have worn something if I HAD anything in the ol' closet! But because I didn't, it was off to the mall to look for something to wear, which we found in the nick of time. Seriously, we bought the stuff 5 minutes before Penny's closed at 9:00pm.

So to recap:

-Tickets:: check
-New outfit:: check
-Packing:: almost!
-All ready:: definitely not

Come back tomorrow to see if we made our train on time. LOL
Oh, and of course to hear all about the hotel and movie experience!

Love and Energies.

WOW I think if it was me, I would have been in shock for a good week before realizing that all that was actually true!
