Finally on to Star Wars weekend!
In between leaving Orlando for Dopey and starting Star Wars, I made it back to work and got caught up as well as did all of my reading for class and went to my first classes and also unpacked and repacked. And I had to deal making the final touches on my costumes and that was stressful! Oh and one of my best friends got married! Busy doesn't describe the days between dopey and rebel.
Anyways, I went to the wedding and reception on Friday then went back to work a bit before heading out to leave for Rebel. We left LA around 3:30 and it was the worst traffic I've ever seen. It was taking forever to go anywhere so we made the decision to stop and grab dinner so we could head straight to the expo.
We finally got to our hotel at 645, checked in, dropped our stuff and headed to the Expo. We got there at 7, got our bibs and shirts, saw Mallory and Chris, went through the merchandise (where we bought nothing!) and got KT taped in 45 minutes. It was great to do the expo quick and get taped again. We went back to the expo to really explore slower and take pics.
The expo was great-I think they did a great job with the theming and the photo opportunities. We went back the next day to get more pictures and be able to walk around a bit more. I even got to see Heidi and Chris Powell--of course they were filming for their show so look for it in the next season!
After we headed back to the hotel to unpack and get ready for bed. Devin and I had literal PTSD-like flashbacks from dopey (unpacking, prepping, etc) and both almost had panic attacks. Not sure why but it was super overwhelming to be doing it all over again. After rolling and stretching we tried to go to bed around 9:15 but the DL fireworks kept us up. We drifted off to sleep slowly after that. Not too sound as we got a call at 11:15 from the front desk telling us to move our car to make room for someone else. Uh really? We obliged and fell back asleep until our 3:45 alarms.
10k and star wars recap are coming this week!
