WE ARE GOING TO ELLEN IN THREE WEEKS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Funny story. So we all know that going to Ellen was on my 30 Before 30 list, which I didn't accomplish but not for lack of trying! But periodically I would go online to see if tickets were available. (By the way, here's the ticket link. They are fully booked for this season, but keep it in mind for the future!)
Anyway, somewhere along the road my friend Dan mentioned that he was also interested in going. So a couple of months ago I noticed she had tickets available, signed up and then emailed Dan telling him to sign up too. Well I failed to clarify which date I'd signed up for, we chose different dates, and Dan and his girlfriend Amy got tickets but Matt and I did not. Saaaaaaaaaad.
A few weeks later I noticed that tickets were available again, so I figured I'd give it a shot. After not hearing anything for a few weeks I figured I was out of luck again. Then one afternoon my phone rang, I looked at it and remembered Dan saying "818 area code...that's the number you want to stop whatever you're doing for." Sure enough, it was the Ellen show!
I'll let you know when it's going to air. I'm hoping for some good guests that day. I don't even care if we win prizes, I am just so excited!!!!!! Dan and Amy just got back and he said it was exhausting but fun.
P.S., I'm totally giving myself 30 Before 30 credit for this one. I was pretty darn close and this was out of my control.
