I’m Hollywood bound!
Yep, that’s one gratuitously large photo of Robert Downey Jr. — the star of Marvel’s Iron Man 3. You’re welcome. :)
Why am I posting a nearly life-size image of Robert Downey Jr.? Well, it’s because I’m thoroughly psyched to announce that I’ve been selected as one of 25 bloggers to fly to LA to attend the Hollywood premiere of Iron Man 3 later this month!
Why is this trip so special?
This trip is particularly exciting for me, because even though I’m really fortunate in that I receive quite a few offers to take great press trips each year, I just really haven’t been able to get out much. I’ll blame it on being pregnant (hello hyperemesis gravidarum) for almost half of the past 4 years, on nursing, and on just being crazy-busy with the babies, but truly, I’m also just a bit of an introvert by nature.
It isn’t that I don’t love trying new things and having fun, I DO, but I also sometimes require a kick in the pants to really get out there. I can’t be the only one, right?
At this place in my life, I feel like it’s the right time to focus a little more on myself again. My kids are both officially toddlers now, and you know… sometimes Mom needs a bit of fun and excitement, too. It’s just time. Actually, it’s probably way past due.
What’s coming up
So, I’m going to hop on a plane, and I’ll be visiting LA for the first time in my life! I’ll be dressing up, walking the red carpet at the Iron Man 3 premiere, and I’ll even have the opportunity to interview some of the stars of the film.
While I’m in town, I’m also getting the opportunity to tour and have breakfast at the world famous El Capitan Theatre and Soda Fountain, and even have my picture taken with Tony Stark at Madame Tussaud’s Wax Museum—how fun!
More details are coming soon. I hope you’ll follow along, I’m so excited to share all of the #IronMan3Event fun with you!
