I’m a member of the Netflix Stream Team. I won this trip for my post on parenting
Oh my goodness the day has come! At 4am Friday I will be picked up by car service (first) and going on an Amtrak (first) and headed to NYC (first!!!). There are so many firsts that are going to be happening with this trip I cannot even wait! The best way to find out everything I’m doing is following #StreamTeamUKS which is the hashtag I’ll be using on my trip.
When I first opened my email that said “CONFIDENTIAL”, I thought oh I’m getting some exclusive news about the show. Oh it was way more than that! They told me that my post was one of 5 selected and I would be heading to New York City! They even sent me this awesome JanSport backpack, which I cried when I first open the package because my grandmother always bought me purple JanSport’s. It reminded that she’s still with me.
Filled with a GoPro, and lots of Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt gear that fans would recognize. And then I realized I had to start packing, a trip filled with a movie/TV tour, dinner at Tavern on The Green, seeing The Lion King (total musical nerdgasm) and a trip to a delicious candy shop.
Now as a Western NewYorker people often think when I say I’m from New York that I’m from “the city”. Well I’ve never been, I’ve also never been on vacation or a trip for business. This is a first. For an introvert with some anxieties this is absolutely crazy but I’m sooo excited! None of this would have ever been possible if I had given up on blogging as a job, if I let myself go into just being a mom and finding a 9-5 that didn’t make me happy. No I am Unbreakable Ashleigh!
Packing for the trip I actually had to go shopping! I packed jeans, an amazing outfit for The Lion King and another little outfit that you will just have to wait and see.
