TIFF2011…Celebrity for a day, or 3 :-)

Just thinking about our trip to Toronto last week makes me smile all over my face. When I say it was a much needed sabbatical for The Man and me, I REALLY MEAN IT! I honestly believe we accomplished all we set out to do (and then some) and couldn’t have asked for a better group of hosts while being ushered around the city and treated like ROCK STARS. Thanks to our dear friend John Davidson, as well as his kick-ass staff at sonaBlast! Records Canada…..Barbara, Lindsay, Rob….Y’all were the lifeblood of our adventure for certain!  A big shout out also goes to all the talented new musical artists (Chloe Charles, Kyle James Hauser, THE NORTH) we added to our inner circle. And let me not forget to thank Samantha Gutstadt with RealTVFilms and Chrissy Newton from VOCAB Communications  for their extreme hospitality in the SocialMediaLodge gifting suite. A huge shout out to Andrea Burridge with Mereadesso Woman. She hooked me up with the most amazing product (Face + Neck Toning Gel) from her skin care line. Last but not least, I must thank Wendy and Tanya from Inspire Cosmetics, another wonderful line of yummy beauty enhancers. They whisked me into the make-up chair and had me camera ready in no time! I felt like such a celebrity, and when you are a mommy like me, that’s always nice….lol. Also, big props to The Drake Hotel and The Football Factory for being such amazing venues. If you are ever in Toronto, go to both of these fine establishments. You will be welcomed with open arms…..just tell them John Davidson’s folks from LA sent you. Of course, I’m sure I’ve left some people out, as I am still going through biz cards, putting names with memories of faces. At any rate, I can’t wait to host all of y’all down here in La La Land! I might even be able to make you some poutine 🙂

This photo says it all. Me dancing on stage with a FUNK BAND. Crossing that off my bucket list now.

Give it to me straight. I can take it :-)
