Ellen Recap

Lets just say everyone should spoil themselves once in awhile.  I had a blast jet setting(jensetting as Sofie calls it) to Burbank, California for the Ellen show.

First off, Let me just say that I am a bit OCD.  I follow the rules and Jen is my other half.  I called her the rule breaker.  When we went to board Jen jumped up to get in line and I made her sit down until they called our zone...even when there was no one in line....and it was our turn next....Jen and I talked the whole way on the plane..she brought magazines but literally we chatted the whole way.  I was the navigator...and lets say I was not the best..just getting my phone to work on maps was challenging to me..thanks Jen!!! At one point on the freeway I said "get over...over...faster...faster"  and Jen replied "I am going as fast as this corrolla will go! lol"  She kept my stress down and while I had her phone for navigation I learned that I have no friends..she gets text messages every 10 minutes...dang it I am lucky to get 10 texts a day and they all come from hubby or other bloggers!

We went to THE GROVES to go shopping..well Jen shopped I just window shopped but it was loads of fun and we lucked out and saw a taping of EXTRA

We were trying to decide their age...boy was I wrong.  Did you know Mario Lopez was 39?  and Maria was 34?  neither did I....crazy they looked awesome!

It started to pour down rain while we were waiting in the parking garage...man it got chilly for these Arizona girls but I loved the change in weather.  I met up with my friend Theona whom I work with and was my maid of honor in my wedding see below.

It was cool...she moved to LA almost 2 years ago so it had been awhile since I had seen her...good friends though never take long to get back in touch with!

At Ellen she had Joel McHale as a guest...he was hilarious

The band was The Script with Will.i.am and they were awesome

The special guest Anthony Robles from ASU..they gave us the book..he is truly inspiring..I started reading the book and it has me in tears as I read it...great book!

They also had some Dancing with the stars folks Sabrina Bryan and Louis Van Amstel--boring...

Then before we knew it, it was time to head home..here we are below a little tired

I just have to add that I came home early and hubby picked me up with no incident and the house was clean and laundry done....it was the icing on the cake.
I am going to start exercising tonight so I am looking forward to getting back at it!
