24 Hours In Hollywood

Last weekend Maddie, Emmy, and I headed up to Hollywood for a quick overnight stay as we get excited for the 2016 Nickelodeon Kids' Choice Awards! To celebrate, Emmy got to “slime” Maddie and we all got to see the new Rav4 Hybrid with partner Toyota. We had the best time!20160305_123841

We started our adventure by checking into our hotel. It never takes Em more than a couple seconds to do this. She loves staying at hotels! She tells me all the time how relaxing they are, even ones in the middle of NYC are relaxing to her!


After we were situated in our room, we headed out for a bite to eat. I think I counted 13 different vegan restaurants within a 15 minute drive so it took us a bit of time to decide on one. I looked at so many menus, and when I saw one that had lasagna, I knew where we were going. It was delicious and gave us the fuel we needed for an afternoon of fun!


Emmy took 1,000 selfies on the way back to the hotel and then we headed down to Hollywood and Highland Center!


Toyota is helping everyone get excited for the Nickelodeon Kids' Choice awards and they threw a little party to celebrate. There was everything from sliming to dressing up! And the main guest was the new RAV4 Hybrid! 


We got to see the inside and it is really nice, and really roomy! A really fun vehicle! 


When Emmy was in the RAV4 she saw a tattoo table so we headed over there next!

After that, she joined the DJ, and had a little dance off with some other kids!

This is the point where she saw you could get slimed. I thought for sure she wanted to get slimed, and then she told us that she wanted Maddie to get slimed, and that she wanted to pull the string to dump the slime. Maddie was not thrilled! 


Being an awesome big sister, she went along with it. I sat there and thought about how this would have been my dream come true when I was younger. I can't even tell you how many times I dreamed of getting slimed whenever Nickelodeon showed it happening!

I've watched this video 100 times. It never gets old! 

After Maddie had a moment to get cleaned off (green slime leaves a mark, haha!) we headed out and did some sightseeing!

We are so excited to watch the Kids' Choice Awards this weekend and we can't wait to see some celebrities getting slimed too!

Did you dream of getting slimed too?

  1. Looks like a really fun time! That vegan lasagna looks tasty too. It must have been nice having so many options.

  2. This looks like a fun trip. I would like to slime someone, but I wouldn’t want to be on the receiving end.

  3. What a fun trip! I think this would be such fun for the kiddos. Mine included, they’d have so much fun! That lasagna looks amazing too!

  4. I would totally love to be slimed. I have never been to Hollywood but would love to go some time. Have a great time at the Kids Choice Awards 🙂

  5. Wow! So much fun!! From the hotel, (my grandkids LOVE hotels too) to the vegan restaurant, (I’m vegan!) to all the green slime! You made memories that will last a lifetime!

  6. This must have been an amazing experience for her. It would be so much fun to be slimed. Looks like she had a great time.

  7. This looks like a really fun trip! I remember watching Nickelodeon as a child when people would get slimed and I loved it. The hotel you stayed at does look very relaxing!

  8. I’ve always wanted to get slimmed. But I’m sure that’s true for most kids that grew up watching Double Dare. It looks like you guys had a great time.

  9. I loved watching nickelodeon growing up and the shows with slime were full to watch. I’ve never really thought about getting slimed myself. It looks like you and your girls had an amazing time.

  10. What a fun experience!! I NEVER wanted to be slimed (just to messy for me!), but I always enjoyed watching it happen to everyone else, lol! Sometimes I wish I had a slime bucket at home for when the kids are out of line. Just kidding, ha ha! …. okay, maybe not so much …

  11. You absolutely win the coolest mom award mom! How incredibly exciting for all of you. Love seeing glimpses of your 24 hour adventure – and by the way, I totally thought you were a teenager in these photos. Can’t wait to see what’s next for you all.

  12. Wow what an amazing trip, it looks like you had so much fun! That is a lot of vegan restaurants in a short space, you hardly ever see them round here. its like buses, you wait ages for one then 2 come along at once LOL

  13. What a fun day! I don’t think she’ll ever forget getting slimed! My kids are crazy about LA. They always have a blast.

  14. I legit grew up on Nickelodeon where Sliming was really a thing. I wanted to get slimed so freaking bad!!! So happy you and your daughter had fun at this event!
