This past weekend I got a last minute random invite to attend a junket for a new movie called Ricki & the Flash! I was actually in my hometown visiting with my family when I got the invite. And for the 1st time in forever - I actually was invited to do something non-blogger bash related! lol It was something I LOVED to do when on air. MOVIE JUNKETS! And even though I said I was trying to SLOW DOWN (and yes, my husband made it TOTALLY clear to me that I was not slowing down yet! haha) I couldn't pass up the chance to meet Rick Springfield.
Look, when a former jock who played plenty of Rick Springfield in her heyday gets the opportunity to head off to NYC to HANG with the ever so famous creator of JESSE'S GIRL - I'm IN!! I was all over that opportunity. One of my favorite things to do when I first got into the radio space was to do movie junkets! I LOVED it. Chicago was the best. I remember meeting Channing Tatum... Oh.. wait - focus Joey. Back to Ricki! ha
Upon arrival to NYC I met up with a few of my favorite blogging buddies and we headed over to the Sony offices to catch the movie before we interviewed the stars. . I can't really even begin to tell you what it felt like sitting in that theatre. It was REALLY surreal. I mean, think about how many movie stars sat in those seats? I was nervous that I would get in trouble for taking pics or interrupting the movie!! I know, right. So silly. But I didn't take a pic OF the screen. Just one of me FACING the screen.
We got treated to a lovely makeup experience along with some great treats before heading out to dinner. I got my eyelashes put on - which I am officially obsessed with, thank you Kim Pirella my former NickMomCoHost! The pic was before the lashes -------> But by the time I got done and we went to dinner at a BBQ joint, I forgot to take a pic! Then eating BBQ? All bets were off. ha. Either way, it was super fun to hang out and get our makeup, lashes & hair done.
Ricki & the Flash coming to theaters August 7th! Check back for Minutes with Meryl & Motherhood.
