Gnomeo and Juliet Red Carpet Premiere – I’m Going to Hollywood!


No, no, I did not try out on American Idol.  I am way too old, and well, I can’t sing worth a damn.  But I am still going to Hollywood!

I have been invited, with about 14 other bloggers, to the Red Carpet Premiere of Gnomeo and Juliet.  If you haven’t seen the previews yet, I am sure you will soon.  The movie looks adorable!

Tomorrow (Friday) I am leaving on a jet plane to head for Lala land.  We will check into a beautiful hotel in Hollywood, then later tomorrow night we will see the movie in a private screening.  Saturday is a jam packed day – we will not be slowing down!   We will head to Beverly Hills in the morning and will have Round Table Sessions with a few celebrities.  Who you might ask?  Only Sir Elton John! And Emily Blunt! Oh and James McAvoy, and director Kelly Asbury!  To say I am extremely excited would be an understatement.  We will then have lunch in Beverly Hills, tour the Disney lot, and have dinner in L.A. before heading back to our hotel in Hollywood.  This is something I never dreamed I would be doing.  But it gets even better!

Sunday we are going to the Red Carpet premiere of Gnomeo and Juliet, and we get to walk down the red carpet as guests.  That is a little frightening, as I am fairly certain I will trip and subsequently face plant right there on the red carpet… in front of important people. After the premiere, we will go to the after party, then head back to the airport to come home.

Some of the other voices in the movie are Jason Statham, Michael Caine, Patrick Stewart, Maggie Smith, Hulk Hogan, Ozzy Osbourne, and Dolly Parton.  I hope we get to meet {or at least see} them as well.  Hopefully I will have some amazing pictures to show you when I get home!

I have been shopping pretty much every day of the past week, to make sure I have everything I need for this trip.  I just know I am going to forget something…

If you want to keep up on my travels in Hollywood, make sure you check Twitter {hastag #Gnomeoandjuliet}, and on my Facebook Page. I will be posting pictures and other info.

Have a wonderful weekend!
