Operation California is a Go!


I am THRILLED to tell you that one of my Dreams will be coming true! It is completely unreasonable and not at all frugal, but I want it! I am going to make it happen. My Husband was able to get off work and operation California is a go! In case you don't already know this, I live in Florida. On the other side of the United States. I have not been to California since I was 5 years old. Why am I going to California? I first talked about this in my Bucket List post, but my three favorite bands that I am pretty much obsessed with will be playing together on the same day at the same location (30 Seconds to Mars, Blink 182, Rise Against..in no particular order). In Fontana, CA at Epicenter Twenty Ten. This will probably never happen again and I REALLY want to go. I want this more than I have wanted anything in a long time. On top of everything else, this is Blink 182's only US performance this year. Plus, I love some of the other bands such as Bush (first performance since 2001!), Papa Roach, Eminem, Bad Religion, etc. Epicenter Twenty Ten is a 2 day, 40 band kick butt concert. Go here for more info.

Anyways, in order to travel across the country for this one weekend I am going to have to come up with at least $1300 in less than 3 months without touching our normal income. Yikes! I need plane tickets, car rental, hotel, gas money, food money and Epicenter Twenty Ten tickets for two people. Here is what I am going to do:
*work at least a day of overtime (10 hours minimum) every week for the next 11 weeks
*Do more sponsored paid blog posts
*Sell miscellaneous stuff like books on Amazon, Ebay
*PRAY!

Can I do it? Yes, Yes I can. I will. So, stay tuned for a crazy and wild three months. Wish me luck!

(On a side note: I am considering doing a separate small blog for my Epicenter Twenty Ten posts, what do you think? Do you like reading it here, or do you want a separate blog with small once a week posts?)
