WWE Superstar John Cena celebrated Make-a-Wish's World Wish Day on RAW #WWEMOMS


 As I watched RAW, with my family this segment brought a tear to my eye, it was so touching to see those kids dreams come true! WWE Stars making dreams come true!


 WWE Superstar John Cena celebrated World Wish Day with three wish kids that attended Monday Night Raw live in Columbus, OH.  Logan Parks of Stanton, Kentucky, Jacob Lawson of Hutchinson, Minnesota and Nicholas Santillo of Runnemede, New Jersey were personal guests of Cena, who brought all three children onstage to make them honorary WWE Superstars.  All three children “wished” to meet John Cena.


An amazing thing, wasn't it? John Cena is a great guy and the WWE are just wonderful as well.

My Iron Man 3 Red Carpet Experience at El Capitan Theatre! #IronMan3Event #ElCapitan


**** Disclosure*** This trip was provided by Disney. I received an all expenses paid trip to LA, courtesy of Disney and Marvel. My opinions are 100% my own and have not been influenced in any way.
Have you ever had a dream come true? Well I did, and I just can not wait to tell you all about it! Well, I was able to walk the red carpet at a cool big budget Disney/Marvel premiere of Iron Man 3.  Well let me start at the beginning of the whirlwind red carpet experience, getting ready! Isn't getting ready for a prom or a big event fun? Well getting ready for a huge premiere like this is an amazing experience!  I will be able to walk along such great starts as Gwyneth Paltrow, Robert Downey Jr, Sir Ben Kingsley and so many more big named stars.
What to wear how to do my hair??? I luckily had everything out and ready to go when it was time to get ready (we went right to getting ready for the premiere from interviewing some of the stars) so time was short, too much to do with so little time!  Time to get dazzling! 

Time to be a princess! Dress..check, up-do check...sparkling makeup and accessories check! Time to meet the other bloggers and get ready to get on the road to the movie premiere. Yes, I have to admit I was a little nervous, the butterflies in my stomach were fluttering, but I was more excited than nervous though..  

Here is a group of the gals driving to the premiere tweeting away. Getting the word out about this great premiere.  See me right in the front hard at work! 

 The street were buzzing with excitement,  and there were people everywhere! And I do mean everywhere!  Not since the Phillies won the World Series have I seen this many people in the streets! 
 So we were here! While we waited to get to the carpet Robert Downey, Jr. drove right by us to get to the premiere! Robert was driving a cool convertible Audi surrounded by a police escort, what a great way to start the evening!  We were excited and ready to be celebrities!  Off we go....
 


 Walking down the red carpet was just as exciting as you could ever imagine. You were like a real star if only for a little while. We all were able to walk down the red carpet close to were the stars were. I was able to see Ty Simpkins on the carpet, loved the sneakers he was wearing. 

Along with the celebrities, you also got to see the paparazzi and all of the screaming fans. And I was right in the middle of all of the action. This was unbelievable. 

(Thanks Crunchy Frugalista for the awesome photo)
Here I am doing my red carpet pose, yes I was as happy as I look. Time to head to the lobby to get ourselves a snack! Time to enjoy the 3rd installment of the awesome Iron Man franchise!   

My time on the red carpet was a wonderful experience. I kept pinching myself, and no this was not a dream it was real and I will remember this for the rest of my life. 
You can check out the red carpet experience too, via this video from Marvel. At the 30 minute mark check out for myself and my fellow bloggers! 
But that is not all, I have so much more to tell you all about all of my adventures in Hollywood.  Be sure to stay tuned for celeb interviews a movie review and much more.

So how was the movie? Well I will give you my full review very soon, I can tell you this was my favorite of all of the Iron Man movies, it was so action packed and Ben Kingsley made the move, but more on that later :)
IRON MAN 3 releases in theaters on May 3rd
