Who woulda thunk it?
Me. Little ‘ol struggling to pay the bills, pinching pennies, keep afloat…me.
OK, maybe my mom would have thought it. I am her daughter and to her why wouldn’t I have gone? But I did NOT see this one coming!
September 2011:my article in All You magazine was set to be published. I had only been blogging a couple months at that point and we were no where near getting out of debt. Clipping coupons was a way of life. If I didn’t have a coupon for it, there was no way I was buying it!
September 2012: I’m here writing about an all expense paid trip to Disneyland I just took? Reminds me of my favorite Fairy Godmother quote from Cinderella:
Even miracles take a little time.
I’m a contributing writer at SassyMamaInLA and I went to represent her blog and attend a press junket for Finding Nemo 3D, Tinker Bell’s Secret of the Wings and Cinderella. Talk about serendipity considering I felt like Cinderella!
I stayed here.
The London Hotel West Hollywood.
Named Travel +Leisure’s Number 1 Best Hotel in North America. Yeah, you totally want to stay here. It’s a celeb magnet.
That’s the London!
And guess what? They are frugal friendly! All phone calls to London, UK are complimentary. I couldn’t think of anyone I knew to call in London, besides the Queen. And I’m pretty sure she wouldn’t take my call.
I went here.
Do I need to say more? It’s Disneyland. The Happiest Place on Earth.
I ate here.
Pixie dust was totally involved.
I made a pit stop here.
Come on! You know you would too.
I got to pick anything from here.
I need a mic.
This is the part where I give my acceptance speech and start thanking everyone who got me to this point. Oh dear, hope I don’t pull a Hillary Swank.
If you’re a long time reader, you know all about how I make my own Disney magic at home with crafts, costumes and movies. This trip was a real life Cinderella story come true.

Have a magical day!
