I had to think of a creative way to tell my story. You see, they don't allow cameras (or phones with cameras) inside. I knew this because I read the "must know" information on the website that gives away tickets to the Late Late Show...even though I wasn't going through them...I'm a rule follower (drive my husband nuts!), and wanted the details, what to wear, where to park, and so on. It's funny, because as you read the story, you will find out that some of this was useful, and some was not applied to us :)
and this is dark, but to explain why we took this photo...
If you've ever seen the shows "Inked" or "Tattoo Highway", you know Thomas Pendelton. He is a good friend of my husband's, they've known each other since they were kids. When they did "Tattoo Highway", my husband and Thomas became business partners (shirts and accessories), we were even on the original pilot episode of the show. The lady who owns this shop is a friend of Thomas' and bought stuff from our company, so Thomas, my husband, and another friend, Anthony, went to do her sign on her request. The company, Ministry of Ink, for many reasons is not around anymore. We still have inventory :( Our biggest client at the time was Hot Topic, but that was a one time thing, and the show only lasted one season, so it just didn't get the free advertising we were hoping for, oh well :) It was a fun experience anyway!
Okay...wow, that was long LOL! But it was a fun day, up there with the day I met the Jonas Brothers with my middle daughter (another long story!), and Pink and Carey Hart (through Thomas). And really, I am just a normal, stay at home mom, who happens to sometimes have out of the ordinary experiences!!!
