One Month Prior:
Someone pinch me. Today I feel like my life is a dream. This cannot be real, it must be some sort of a prank. I totally feel like one of my favorite YouTube videos David after Dentist where he says, “Is this real life?” That is me. Right now! Unsure of what is real and what isn’t. And sadly, it won’t be forever… just like David!
I just keep re-reading the email, thinking they got the wrong blogger. But it is addressed to me! Not Dear Mommy Blogger, Dear Blogging Friend, Dear (fill in the blank) – yes I get emails like this daily! Little did I know by starting this blog 3 years ago that something so amazing could happen to me. I just never would have imagined it. But it is!
OKay, I am over the initial shock, yet I am still beaming! I feel so lucky and very blessed! I cannot believe this week has finally come! So here goes…
I was chosen to be a part of a blogger program with Hilton HHonors. This means I get an all-expenses paid weekend of adventure! Two other bloggers and I are going to Orlando, FL for a weekend full of fun! Our adventures include visiting SeaWorld, doing some horseback riding and zip lining, as well as enjoying some great meals – Oh I am so excited. I leave this weekend and I will be sharing my adventurous trip with you on my blog, Facebook, Twitter and Instagram! I hope you follow along!
