Reaching for the ALL STARS…

3.5 Hours
Lots of Miles
Happy Meal
6 Mickeys

“I got a feeling, that tonight’s
gonna be a good night!”

I left work today a little before 5 p.m. and hit the road to go back to the land of the Stars! Traffic was a lot worse then yesterday!! In the past three days, I have spent about 19 hours on the road in the hunt for Mickey’s and although sitting in traffic is definitely not fun, I am actually a lot more comfortable on the road as a result of my adventures!

First stop tonight was Union Station in Los Angeles. I was a little nervous walking up there by myself, but I put on my sunglasses and my I am a tough girl face, and it worked like a charm. I walked by one man sitting on a bench in orange pants and I was not sure if he was just out jail, but I was not going to stop and ask. It cost me $2 to park for 4 minutes, but worth every penny because I got my picture of the Pittsburgh Pirates Mickey Statue!

After leaving Union Station, I was ready to reach for the stars and headed to Hollywood! I’m not sure if people in this area are just angry because they sure do honk and yell a lot. I also don’t understand why people hit the crosswalk button so many times. I’m pretty sure that if you hit it once or 52 times, the light will not change any faster.

I found a photo op with the Cincinnati Reds Mickey at the Holiday Inn Express before heading to the infamous Hollywood Boulevard. After another $2 to park, I found three Mickey Statues in close proximity – Kansas City Royals, Seattle Mariners, and Philadelphia Phillies. I only had one more stop for the night, Industry Rag,where I found the Cleveland Indians Mickey Statue!

This adventure has been one of a kind. I have learned and seen a lot about the area. I am so fired up for the MLB All Star festivities!! My husband and I will celebrate our ONE YEAR Wedding anniversary on Saturday, June 12, and I cannot think of a better gift for both of us to share than the MLB All Star Game tickets! (I should definitely get an A for effort!!)

    Yeah. You ROCK.
