That one time I was on the ellen show


We were invited to a special place at the coronation of Merida. As we were walking into the festivities (about 0.2 seconds before the park opened), we saw two little girls being filmed.

Admittedly, I was most concerned about the noise from the people behind us rushing into the park, so I didn’t pay much attention, but I did remember them there.

Turns out, they are Sophia Grace and Rosie that are often seen in the Ellen show. Then I heard that the video aired on TV, and I had to take a look.

Holy cow! There we were, right at the beginning of the video as they are walking into the park and “ohing and ahing” at the castle.

My newest claim to fame! My family and I were on the ellen show! Yep. And, you can’t argue otherwise. (You can see another picture from that day to see that our clothes match:) But, that’s totally my mom’s walk!)

Since we’re talking about Merida’s coronation, I thought I’d share a couple pictures I took of her….very true to the movie form. No sparkles. No high bosom and I think flat boots. Oh, and not riding side-saddle.

Merida's Coronation

Definitely full of sass and personality just as expected.

Merida's Coronation

As participants in the Disney Social Media Moms Conference 2013 we paid our conference fee, which included hotel accommodations, park tickets, meals, and other gift items. I was not required, or asked, to write about the conference, events, or speakers. The honest opinions are my own and that of my family.
