Sunday is the big day for this small town Texas girl to fly across the pond. I am so overwhelmingly nervous and over the moon excited. My stomach is knotted in all sorts of ways. The only time I have traveled outside of the U.S. is to Mexico. Heck, I have barely seen one-fourth of my own country let alone London!
I hate flying. Anxiety creeps in when I start to vision myself on a plane for this many hours, flying over the ocean. Okay, I am not going to talk about that anymore. My heart is racing as I type.
Here is the low down for next week, in case you're curious.
First of all, while I am gone, I have five amazing friends of mine that will be here sharing their dreams, stories, fashion and gorgeous faces. Thank you so much Yi-Chia, Stesha, Jenni, Annie and Tara. I owe you ladies. BIG time. If you don't know them, you will next week and are going to have five new blogs to add to your reading material.
Random Wednesday link up WILL still run next week. My lady love, Stesha will be hosting it for me and her post is AWESOME!! It's ready to roll, so make sure you link up!
If you are interested, I plan to post lots of pics, probably too many, on Instagram. So be sure to follow me @shannasaidso.
Hmmmm, what else....
Oh yeah, here a sneak peek of the plans...my itinerary if you will.
Flying out on Sunday with Ross. YES, he is going with me. He had to. I couldn't do it alone.
Arrive in London Monday morning.
Monday night dinner with some of the Wallis Team.
Tuesday is the BIG day.
Breakfast with team and shopping at their Marble Arch store.
Lunch with team.
PRESS DAY for an exclusive preview of their Fall/Winter 2013 collection. Butterflies again!
Tour the Wallis office
Then it's time to put my tourist hat on. I plan to see, do, touch, experience every possible thing we can in a crazy, short amount of time.
I told Ross that we need to pack a case of Red Bull and 5-Hour Energy drinks because we aren't sleeping!! There is just too much that we have to squeeze in before heading back to reality. I mean, this could quite possibly be a once in a lifetime experience.
I hope to post every single detail about the trip when I get back. So stay tuned.
And please come back next week even though I won't be here. I promise the ladies that are taking over are pure gems. You will love them!
Thank you again from the bottom of my heart; to everyone who voted, tweeted, commented, supported and prayed for me. Like I said in my video last week, there is NO way possible that this would have happened for me if it weren't for each of you...taking time just for me. I still don't think the reality of this whole thing has really sunk in.
I adore you all and God bless you for helping make one of my dreams come true.
Until then...much love!
