Two things we’re fond of – entering contests and winning. HGTV Dream Home? You bet your bottom dollar I signed up for e-mail alerts every day. Anything I’m tagged in on Instagram? Right back at you. And then there’s Madewell – say that name and I’m sold.
So when Nate texted me a link to a Carpool Karaoke Contest, I was in.
Sponsored by Magic City Ford and our favorite hometown station WDBJ7, the winner of contest received two round trip tickets to Los Angeles, lodging, tickets to the Grammy Museum, tickets to the Grammys AND the after party.
Clearly, we were all in. So on the way back from our South Beach, Miami wedding, we jammed out to Journey and didn’t stop believing (see what I did there?). Nate then worked his video magic to add in our dear friend James Corden. I present to you our iphone, 7-second entry:
We got caught up in dreaming and I even let my sister know that we should celebrate her birthday a weekend early just in case we were in LA the next one. Fast-forward to yesterday when we received a call asking us to come down to Magic City Ford’s Showroom today for a special announcement and filming. We were led to believe we were one of the finalists and today during filming, they revealed to us that we won!! Here's the big reveal from tonight's news: Click the link to see the Full Video!
No, we still can’t believe it and yes, we’re freaking excited. We're hoping we can do a live Carpool Karaoke with James Corden and that Ellen will join us. Basically we'll never stop dreaming now. We’ll keep you updated via Instagram stories and Facebook so follow along friends!!
We’re coming for you, L.A.
A huge shout out to WDBJ, Magic City Ford in Roanoke, and Mike Bryant who sent Nate the initial link for the contest entry.
