I hope everyone enjoyed their weekend! I was one of the lucky ones who had the day off, so I did my best to enjoy my day away from the computer.
But now we’re back in business, and I have a favor to ask of you. Actually, favor sounds so serious. I have a fun idea to ask you to be apart of.
Next Tuesday, my mom and her best girlfriends are flying out to LA to spend the afternoon laughing at The Ellen Show.
I love Ellen. To say I’m jealous of my mom is the understatement of the year – and because I can’t actually be my mom and dance with Ellen at the beginning of her show, I have high hopes of living vicariously through her.
So I have an idea, but I think it needs to be a blogosphere team effort. I want to Tweet Ellen and ask her to give my mom a shout out at the show.
How cool would that be?
Here’s what you could do to help.
1. Follow Ellen on Twitter (@TheEllenShow)
2. Shamelessly Tweet her about my mom being at the show on October 18th. Something like “Ellen! @LunchboxDiaries ‘ mom, Katie W., is going to be at the show on 10/18. Please give her a shout out!”
3. It’s key that my Twitter handle is always mentioned. My hope is that maybe she’ll notice a trend and actually read the tweets.
I’m not asking for my mom to win a new car or a new wardrobe. All I want is for her to get a “Hey, Katie, how are ya?” from the ever-fabulous Ellen. My mom thinks I’m crazy, but I’d pay good money to see her face if this actually worked.
What do you think? Are you willing to help me this week?
