Yet just two days ago I was on the red carpet for the Hollywood premiere of Disney’s Big Hero 6.
I’m so not an expert on anything Hollywood, but I have picked up a few things about what to do, how to behave and even how to think on the red carpet.
The time leading up to the red carpet is a whirlwind of getting dressed (with Spanx, of course!), putting on makeup and rushing around in the highest heels I dare to wear. By the time I’m actually there, it’s easy to get caught in the atmosphere and seizing brief opportunities for photos.
I did get a few fun photos, but this time I reminded myself to relax. To look around. To stay conscious of how grateful I was to have my feet on Hollywood Boulevard. To be thankful that this Minnesota mommy blogger was on a red carpet, representing Disney and enjoying the moment with amazing friends.
…and having a fantastic time with Donna Hup (who made sure I didn’t lose anything) and Holli from ABC (who made sure I didn’t embarrass myself)!
That doesn’t mean I didn’t do some serious stargazing. I caught glimpses of the stars of the film, and plenty of other famous people.
One thing I’m not is a photographer, so I’m taking advantage of Disney’s file of Big Hero 6 premiere photos. Here’s an amazing pic of the Big Hero 6 cast on the red carpet:
I have so much more to share about my entire trip to California, including a full, no-spoilers review of Big Hero 6 with plenty of reasons to go see it!
For now, I just want you to know that Big Hero 6 is an amazing movie. I took my husband and kids to an early screening last week and we all adored it. I saw it for a second time at the Hollywood premiere, and I’d see it again in a heartbeat!
Disney’s Big Hero 6 opens tomorrow (November 7, 2014) and you can get your Big Hero 6 tickets here!
