|Kristin and I waiting at the Hollywood Bowl at 5am!|
Usually, a trip like this would be accompanied by copious amounts of alcohol BUT, yours truly is preggers once again! That's right! Three months in, people. I am officially on the boring train for most of the year. However, the new baby is due in September so this year I will be anxiously awaiting the start of football season. Whatever works, right?

Just when we thought we couldn't take any more, we made it to a bus which took us to the Kodak Theatre (about 5 minutes away). It was enough time to slightly defrost and rest our feet and then, you guessed it, more lines! These new lines snaked all the way through Hollywood and Highland (outside, of course) all the way to the inside of the theatre. Here's where everything fell apart. Depending on what color wristband you had, that dictated where you were supposed to sit. However, the crowd/line wrangling at this point was super disorganized and the doors to each section began closing one at a time.
People were getting anxious. All the seats left were at the very top mezzanine. Oprah will be a tiny speck if we have to sit up there! It began to be a "find a seat at your own risk" type of a situation. Most people ran up to the 3rd mezzanine. Kristin, being the smart girl that she is, overheard two women say, "Let's just go down to the main floor." We figured that at least we had a shot on the ground floor...if we followed the herds, we would for sure be in the super nose bleed section.

Luckily, just before taping, they asked everyone to remove their wristbands. Whew!

Until next time!
