So as I write this, I’m packing up for a quick but fun-filled two day trip this weekend to LA. I’m attending the Independent Spirit Awards with Aveeno, one of the sponsors of the award ceremony. I’m really excited!  There are some great actors and actresses up to win an award – Natalie Portman, Samuel Jackson, Bill Murray, Nicole Kidman and many more.  We’ll supposedly be hanging in a back room backstage!  I hope to catch a glimpse or two of somebody famous and will be sure to post any fun photos I’m able to snap.

I’m attending thanks to Recycle Bank and Aveeno, the latter having selected me along with 24 other bloggers to be Aveeno Ambassadors for the next year.  I’m excited to be traveling with my good friend Colleen of Classy Mommy and to meet up with Jodi from Mom’s Favorite Stuff.

What does all of this mean?  It means that I hope to have some fun info for you on Aveeno and green products after the weekend’s over, plus I really hope to share some great photos on my experience!  While I lived in San Francisco for awhlie, I’ve actually only been to LA a handful of times and I’ve never been to Santa Monica, where we’re staying.  I’m thrilled to be a part of all of this.

Lastly, after the event’s over, I’ll be spending a year as one of Aveeno’s Blogger Ambassadors and I’ll hopefully have some great products to share with you all.  Stay tuned!
