Our Trip to the Oscars

In honor of Oscars weekend, I thought I’d take a minute to share my Oscars experience with all of you. The picture quality is not very good (as this was 2 years ago and taken with my iphone then) but it was an experience I’ll never forget and only hope to do again (though it’s not always likely). My husband was part of a project associated with The Academy, so he was able to secure this bucket list moment for me. While I was holding out hope we’d get to go again this year (as I do every year), it’s unfortunately not going to happen this time. So I’ll share these moments with all of you, snuggle up with my best gals Sunday night and watch from my living room sofa, remembering the best weekend of my life. Here’s an inside look… (again, apologies for the poor picture quality and btw NONE are edited).

Dress shopping…

I had less than 2 days to find a dress, accessories, have alterations and pack for the weekend. I also had a 2-year-old in tow. (Glamorous, right?) Here were some of the options I considered.

Here was the winner… (I found it at Georgette’s in Tampa.)

We got out of the limo and Jared Leto was to our right and Harrison Ford & Calista Flockhart just behind us.

Inside the show…

We went to an after-party at the Four Seasons Beverly Hills, but I don’t have any photos of that, believe it or not.

Another highlight of our weekend was a trip to SUR Lounge, where Katie Maloney of Vanderpump Rules was our waitress.  My husband jokes how I wasn’t star-struck by anyone on the red carpet, but speechless when I met the cast of VR. Go figure!

We also ate at Villa Blanca on the day of the Oscars…

Another one of my favorite parts about the trip… shopping Rodeo!

I was never going to be ready for this weekend to end! But it was fun as friends were sending us snippets of sightings of us on TV!

Sometimes, I still can’t believe it happened. But it truly was the most memorable experience of my life…

Maybe if I click my heels three times, I’ll magically transport back…

Hope you enjoyed my little trip down memory lane. Don’t forget to tune into the Oscars Sunday night LIVE at 7 o’clock  EST on abc.
