Last week the Democratic National Convention took over Charlotte.
Although our political affiliation lies elsewhere, Bryan and I chose to put politics aside to be part of this historic event in our great little city.
We were up every morning at 3:30am, were downtown by 4:45am and working by 5:30am.
We watched the sunrise each morning and hung around after work a bit to take in the madness.
Each day we arrived home exhausted and sore at around 3:30pm and went to sleep at 8:00pm nightly.
To say that we had a great experience being in the thick of things is an understatement.
It was truly a fantastic learning experience and so fun to be in the epicenter of the DNC!
The magnificent button wall was my baby... That hot glue gun and I became the best of friends!
The Epicenter was taken over by MSNBC and CNN
Kicking off my mornings with my cup of Joe!
Secretary of State - Madeleine Albright
LMFAO - Redfoo (possible look-alike) stretching, doing lines and yoga in the middle of the street
Secret Service vehicles parking/waiting outside the Marriott (dark because it's 4:45am)
Governor of North Carolina, Bev Perdue, waiting to go live
Jesse Jackson and David Gregory
So many road closures, police and black tinted SUV's everywhere you looked
Walking the streets and inside The EpiCenter, I saw:
Gov. of NC
Rev. Al Sharpton
Because this is my job, I'm refraining from discussing specifics... although I have so many details/gossip that I'd love to share, haha!!
