Tuesday was the "commercial shoot" that the kids and I were asked to be in for the Goddard School. If you all don't know or haven't heard my numerous plugs for my children's school, I believe their school is TOP NOTCH. I honestly would sacrifice all I had to be able to put my children in that school. I won't get into all the mushy dushy details or go into how I adore that school and all their staff BUT I love it there - love it there - love it there... ha... okay I did go into it.
So here is the deal. We were asked to be in the commercial. They want to portray more of a "reality based" commercial and have interviews with the family(ies), etc... So they asked Eric, Elle, Wesley, and I to be apart of it - of course I jumped on it and said HELLZ YES
So I wanted to recap the prepping and shoot for you...
Monday night my step-sister came and spray tanned me. She has a mobile spray tan business and does awesome work. Sets up the tent thing in the garage - undress - spray - done. Instant TAN. Love it.

I took a shower around 9 a.m. brushed my teeth and threw my hair in some Velcro curlers.
|GORGEOUS - make shift curler holder, i.e. plastic bag.|
Wardrobe first - chose an outfit and then shoes.
After much consideration
|GASP - curler frizz hair.|
After much smoothing and combing and a little more make-up - things started to look up.
When I got to Goddard, I met the crew and was introduced to the shooting area. My shoot was going to be outside. JUST FABULOUS - it was muggy as all hell and probably close to 90 degrees. Bring on grease face and squint eyes. Whatev! I grabbed my trusty make-up kit and thought - you can do this.

Elle and Wes did so well. Elle was shy at first but then warmed up. She hugged on me and loved sneaking peeks of my interview from her window. Wesley was hilarious saying "Hai Camera Guy" and then showing off his mad art skills and pictures of the family. He was not shy - not.one.bit. That kid is a natural. He lights up around that camera ~ up and coming star for sho.
Well there you have it folks - my one day of stardom is OVER - I loved every second of it and if I could be on the screen everyday I soooo would. Anyone looking for a new newscaster/weather girl/commercial add in/goofball to make fun of?
AND THAT'S A WRAP
How was your Tuesday - any fun t.v. moments?
