Was this day really happening?! Was I really getting to go to the finale and the resort?! After once again talking myself through these questions and the answer being a RESOUNDED YES, I was so thankful for that alone time in the car to spend it in thanksgiving to my Heavenly Father (God) for blessing me with such an amazing gift! I will never forget to thank Him, I realize that all goodness in my life is through Him.
Made it to Long Beach in time to pick up my Battle Buddy, Joni and our journey TOGETHER (at last) began!
Joni and I decided that we were going to travel in our workout clothes so that we could start our "battle buddy trip" off right by crossing something off the bucket list and hiking to the Hollywood sign. Before our hike we needed to power up our bodies, we decided to have a healthy breakfast at Subway. It was Delish!
While sitting at Subway, I decided to check Twitter (I had just signed up for it specifically for this trip. Someone told me it helps be in the "IN" and might get some "sitings" by watching where people are.) This is going to be so stocker-esk sounding but I will not be ashamed because of what happened next...
Ryan Seacrest, the host of American Idol, posted that the current season as well as past contestants would be at the Chinese Theatre today for the star placement of the founder, Simon Fuller's star. I told Joni I was pretty sure that the Theatre is right by the Hollywood sign! We looked at each other and were off!
