Everyone loves Louisville. Not just the U-haul store owners who made a fortune on my misfortune.
We made these cute little cards that every celebrity was handed when they walked in. One side said “Come visit us…”, and then the other said, “For a night cap!” or “For a quickie!”. The quickie was meant to be a quick photo opt in bed with our gregarious model, Karen Lee from Perfect Fit Models. So of course, this was a popular option. The night cap, however, drew quite a crowd of bourbon lovers.
Not being certain that I’d be able to ascertain the bottles of bourbon that I wanted to impress our guests with, I carefully packed and checked the three following bottles to share: Woodford Reserve, Maker’s Mark, and Angel’s Envy. Once they arrived at our bedroom we quickly poured a shot and if we were lucky, then they got into our wickedly-cool bed. The bourbon was undoubtedly a hit, but it was the stories of their visits to Churchill Downs or their meetings with JLaw that made them reminisce about our great city and ensured a positive encounter with the Wicked crew.
My butt sat where Jennifer Lawrence’s butt has sat.
This is what makes our entire trip worthwhile. If you remember, Jennifer Lawrence (our Louisville screen Queen) was nominated for her lead role in “Joy,” the courageous story of a female entrepreneur battling the odds to get her product manufactured in the U.S. and sold on HSN, the Home Shopping Network. Could it have been a better fit for us to be out there celebrating such an amazing actress who stole the screen to tell the story of my role model?! It was fate.
Luckily, I’ve got some very supportive and loving friends here in town and they made the call to introduce me to Jennifer’s mom, Karen, and we met up out in L.A. for a quick glass (or 3 of wine). For confidentiality’s sake, I’ll leave the details out about my experience. But, let’s just say I am a forever grateful to the Lawrence family and my life has been changed. We have many new and exciting things ahead as Wicked Sheets progresses into 2017. Stay tuned!
