Thank you to Disney for covering all my expenses to attend the Delivery Man red carpet premiere. All words and opinions are my own.

Phew!  I just returned from my trip to L.A. and to say that I’ve had a whirlwind few days would be an understatement.  I have so much to share with you all over the next few days, but I wanted to start with one of what was to be many amazing #DeliveryManEvent experiences – the Delivery Man red carpet premiere.

Delivery Man Red Carpet Premiere at the El Capitan Theatre #DeliveryManEvent

It was really kind of a surreal experience.  The El Capitan Theatre where the premiere was held was right across the street from our hotel- the amazing Loews Hollywood Hotel – so when we stepped outside, we were immediately surrounded by lights and people.  Delivery Man was highlighted on the marquee, and the air was full of energy.

When I first shared with you all that I would be heading to L.A. for some Disney/DreamWorks/Marvel fun, I didn’t really know how the trip could get any more amazing.  We were going to be catching a sneak peek of the upcoming DreamWorks movie Delivery Man, and then after we were going to be interviewing Vince Vaughn and Chris Pratt, two of the cast members.  I’m not really a star-struck type of person, but I’m pretty sure we’ve seen every Vince Vaughn movie ever made, so I was excited to know I was going to get to meet him face-to-face.

Delivery Man L.A. Premiere

A few days ago, though, we found that there would be a slight change to our itinerary.  The L.A. premiere of Delivery Man was being moved up and we were going to attend that, also!  Yep, now we’re walking two red carpets.  Fortunately I had picked up two dresses so I could choose my favorite.  Now I’ll get to wear both!

Thank you to Disney for covering my trip expenses to allow me to attend this great event!  All words and opinions are my own.

Some days you wake up to happy surprises.  You find $5 in the pocket of the jeans you put on, your spouse filled your gas tank so you don’t have to stop on the way to work, maybe the person in front of you at the coffee shop pays for your latte.  And then there’s the surprise I woke up to the other day.

#ThorDarkWorldEvent #DeliveryManEvent

On that day, I opened an email that I had to read a couple of times to actually soak in.  I was being invited to travel to LA and attend the red carpet premiere of Thor: The Dark World (in theaters 11/8)!  Yep, that’s right – myself, along with 24 other bloggers, will soon be jumping on planes and heading to California.  The Avengers and all the stand-alone movies that support the characters is one of my all-time favorite franchises, so this is incredibly exciting for me.

What does family mean to you?

As an adopted child, I learned from the time that I could understand the concepts that a family is made up of the people that you love, and that love you back.  It’s not blood ties, it’s not living arrangements, it’s not where or when or how you were born.  It’s a connection.  This theme of family origins and the definition of exactly what is family is central to the upcoming Vince Vaughn movie Delivery Man.
