Lorelai and Rory’s house!!!!
(Any Gilmore Girls fans out there?)
So, just after writing a post about my goals in 2018, what do I do? Take off on a kinda impromptu vacation, of course! My husband and I both celebrate our birthdays in January, and this year is a BIG one for me, so I used it as an excuse for us to slip away for a few days. We hopped a plane and headed to sunny … Burbank. Yup, Burbank. This is actually a vacation I have been wanting to do for awhile, and we finally did it. (I pulled it all together in less than a month.) The highlights include attending a taping of the CBS show MOM, going on a Warner Bros Backstage tour and getting to see most of Star’s Hollow (seriously, I was freaking out!! – I was (kinda) inside Lorelai and Rory’s house!) We got sorted by the sorting hat (I am Ravenclaw, my husband is Gryffindor), we sat on the couch at “Central Perk”. We also got to see the actual sets of the Big Bang Theory and Ellen. We spent a day and a half at Universal and enjoyed the Wizarding World of Harry Potter and the back lot tour (Wisteria Lane actually exists!) and all of the more grown up rides and attractions we wouldn’t have been able to do with our boys (like the Walking Dead). We attended a taping of Jimmy Kimmel Live and got to see Gerard Butler and Supergirl Melissa Benoist up close and personal. And we topped it off by heading back to Warner Bros to attend a live taping of The Big Bang Theory. So much fun packed into just a few days.
I feel incredibly lucky that we got to go on this trip, that our boys have grandparents who enjoy having them around which made us leaving for a few days possible, and that after 15 years of marriage I still love hanging out with my husband.
But. Now it’s time to kick vacation mode to the curb and GET! TO! WORK!
