We’re headed to The Ellen Show!

If you follow me on Facebook, Twitter, or Instagram you might remember the day I announced I had received an email for 4 tickets to the Ellen DeGenerous Show!

Here’s how it all started.

One Sunday afternoon, while I was between laundry loads I went to the Ellen Show website and clicked on their ticket link. I saw that they had tickets to some shows in October so I went ahead and signed my name for the days to see if I had any luck.

Well…Monday morning, while at work, I was checking my email and as I was cleaning out my unread messages in my inbox I see a message from EllenTickets, which shares that I have just received 4 tickets to Ellen for the show on October 18!

This was literally one of the best parts of my day!

I’ve been a big fan of Ellen for a while, my aunt actually is the one that got me into it and she took me to my very first show the summer after my freshman year in college and absolutely loved it!

Now that I had received the tickets the next step was to choose who was going to come with me!

Guest #1: My 14 year old Cousin

My cousin, who is like my little sister,  had been hinting at me that she wanted to go with me since I found out I got the tickets. I wasn’t sure if I could take her because she would have to miss school (two days of homecoming week) and I wasn’t sure about Ellen’s age limit. To her luck the age limit is 14 and her mom said it was alright if she were to miss two days.

Guest #2: My Aunt

My aunt was a given, since she took me to my first show and since she’s a big ellen fan!

Guest #3: My Uncle

He’s not the biggest fan, unlike his aunt, but he’s been to show before and loves attending because of how energetic Ellen is and he loves to see the star guests.

If you really know me, you should know I love surprises and games, so really it was a brainer that I wouldn’t just going to ask my cousin if she wanted to come. I was going to make her work for it.

Surprise for Guest #1

 I created this poster and hid it in the house. Her instructions were to find a piece of paper behind a door. Yes, that all the instructions I gave her and really all the instructions she needed.

The paper looked like this…

I took her a little over 5 minutes to find it.

Here she is super excited to have finally found it!

We just got back from a fun filled two days in Burbank last night. If you check out my Instagram and Twitter you can see some of the great places we got visit.

I’ll share more about the trip and some more pictures latter this week, but right now I need a little sleep time.

Hope you all had a great weekend!!
