This fall I was lucky enough to get invited along by some gal pals to participate in the studio audience for the talk show Ellen. I've known people who've done this before, but have heard about how big of a day/endeavor it can be so I never took the time to investigate it for myself. After all, you have to sign up online, hope to get tickets, hope you are free the day that they give you, find someone to go with you (who wants to go by themselves right?), drive to LA and pretty much block out the whole day--- because it is an entire day (or it feels that way when you're driving from Santa Barbara). So the fact that these wonderful ladies had already taken care of everything and all I had to do was find a sitter meant I was along for the ride! It was such an interesting experience... not knowing what was happening, what would happen next, why they were doing what they were doing etc etc. I think Ellen is hilarious so it was definitely a treat to see her show live. We even lucked out and got invited back to a second show... one of the coveted 12 days of Christmas giveaway shows. We won lots of cool stuff and I was able to spiff out the hubby with a few extra Christmas gifts. If you ever have a chance to do something like this, I highly recommend!
