Excitement over a REAL Snack…the Scoop

So, I gave you a little teaser yesterday on what I was super duper excited about! And, here it is….I have been invited to LA (as in Los Angeles – the land of sunshine and celebrity) to attend an event hosted by my favorite chip brand, Frito-Lay.

Insert Squeel NOW and….Action!

YES! I know!! I’m so excited. I get to attend the red carpet Frito-Lay premiere of “Only In a Woman’s World” with Brooke Burke. You know, the gorgeous model who won Dancing With the Stars last season…Yes, HER!!!

The public premiere will be March 1. But, Frito-Lay is nice enough to give you a teaser to preview from the big premiere. You can see it here. But, I gotta wonder, which lady (or ladies) am I? What do you think – surely you see my personality on here (if you say the hose lady, well…you might know me a little *too* well :-)! And, which one do you identify with? You can also see their bios under the “Meet the Girls” tab! It is seriously the cutest video!

So, a fun new campaign and many awesome things from Frito-Lay sounds pretty cool! But, I do wonder: how *can* Frito-Lay give me something bettter than my Baked Sour Cream & Cheddar chips? Yes, they’re mine… says my belly (and the poundage that has come off that belly)! Things that make you go hmmm….. But, alas, I shall go to LA, visit with Frito-Lay, and take one for the team to find out :-)

And, one of the best parts of this trip will be getting to hang out with some of my bloggy buddies, all whom I met at Blissdom! I will be rooming with one of the best cooks wrangling up hungry cowboys, Lori of A Cowboys Wife and My Wooden Spoon. I will get some tips from the mom of the year – as in, she has 6 children and homeschools too (Sainthood is next, I’m sure): Christine of From Dates to Diapers. And, I always read where everyone said how sweet Katja of Skimbaco Lifestyle is. And, when I met her, I totally agreed! And, a wealth of information too!!

So, watch for more on my trip next week. I’m so excited and can’t wait!!

*I leave Monday morning and will return late Wednesday evening. I will be blogging and tweeting during the trip so watch me now!
