CHANCE OF WINNING ALL STAR GAME TICKETS = PRICELESS

Today, I completed my mission and found the last of the Mickey Mouse statues that have been placed around Southern California for the 2010 All Star Game, which is coming to Anaheim in July.

I have explored Southern California and have seen so many great areas that I may have never seen before. As you know, my husband has been out of town on business from Friday, June 4th and he will be back tomorrow. I  have never really ventured to far on my own. I have not been in California very long and I don’t even take a highway to go to work. This experience was amazing. I have learned so much about the area and I actually know geographically where surrounding cities are located.

I accomplished my goal today and words cannot describe how amazing I feel right now! All on my own, I did it.

I grew up watching baseball and I played softball for many years. I could sit and watch baseball all day, every day. There is just something about this sport that I love everything about.

When I saw on the City of Anaheim Facebook page that there was going to be a contest for a chance at All Star Game tickets, I knew I was in. This Saturday is me and Trent’s first wedding anniversary and he will finally be home tomorrow. I cannot think of a better gift to give him than tickets to the All Star Game. I’ve heard so many times, people say, It’s the thought that counts…and over the last 6 days, I’ve had a lot of time to think!

Today, I found my last four Mickey Mouse Statues, Tampa Bay, Toronto, San Francisco, and Baltimore. The feeling of accomplishment and joy was overwhelming. I’m sure the cars next to me at traffic lights thought I was crazy because I was singing Dancing Queen from my Mama Mia soundtrack at the top of my lungs the whole way home!

I will always be inspired by Walt Disney who said,

“If you can dream it, you can do it!”

  1. Hey Holls, way to go. What an exciting adventure you’ve been on. Next time I’m down, I’ll expect a grand tour of all the new areas you’ve discovered!

  2. Cool! I’m also traveling all over to find Mickey! I started late and the Red Sox and Royals have both been vandalized and they removed them :(. I need 5 more by Tuesday and I’ll be done!

    It’s true about discovering your surroundings, I’ve lived in CA all my life and I’ve never been to about 75 percent of these places!

    Did you win the tickets?

      Hi Vicki – I am not sure about the Royals, but I know the Red Sox Mickey Statue is now at FanFest with a bandaged arm, so you can still get a picture with him! Good luck to you! YES… I did win the tickets! 🙂
