AHHH! Quick! Click the play button on this scary video! Could there have been a worse clip to have it freeze on! Holy Exorcist!
Click it already!!!!! AHHHHH!
So yeah…That’s my news appearance that aired last week! I really debated on posting it especially when I saw the “eyes rolled back in the back of my head” freeze frame! For reals You Tube!?! REALLY!!!! I know I don’t embarrass easily but this is just cruel and unusual!
Regardless, it was quite the adventure to get ready to tape this. I wish you could have been a fly on the wall of my house the night before!
First of all I thought I’d have two weeks or so to get ready but then I got the call saying they’d be here AT MY HOUSE at 7:30 am in two days! GULP!
I went into crazy mood right then and there! My hair! My ROOTS ! My kids need full training on how to act or I at least needed to come up with a effective threat that would scare them into submission!! What to wear! What to wear!
I frantically went on a mad hunt to find a salon that could squeeze me in with absolutely no notice! The gods must have heard my frantic plea because Robert Moody at Ulta in Sandy worked his magic on my locks the very next day! If you’re on the hunt for a fab new stylist give him a call! Oh…but not before emailing me! I have a referral card you can use for $20 off your first service! HELLO!!!! Fun stuff! He’s located in the Ulta Store across from the South Town Mall! Love Ulta! Love Robert!
So now that the hair drama was out of the way I had to clean the Casa top to bottom! Now I realize they probably weren’t going to go into my laundry room but yes it was on the list to tackle! So for two days I cleaned, freaked out, tried to keep my kids from undoing all that I just did and kept thinking I had the perfect outfit in mind so the wardrobe issue wasn’t even an issue….that was until I talked to my sister at 7pm the night before. She flat out told me “You can’t wear that!” WHAT!!!!! Yellow sweaters don’t look good late January! Now what! Here’s where I went borderline Schizophrenic! I had internal dialogs with myself that would have made the best doctors scratch their heads! It was a battle between the two little imaginary Angel and Devil sitting pierced on my shoulders! I played “fashion Show at lunch” at 10:30 at night and my poor hubs had no other choice but to compliment every single outfit I put on! If he hadn’t I’m sure I would have magically turned into a puddle on the closet floor twitching in misery surrounded by perfectly good options! And throughout all of this I kept telling myself:
“No One Cares Becca!!!!! No one cares what you wear! No one cares that you just got your hair done! No one Cares about the segment anyway! No one freakin cares! Chill out!”
So I settled on my very planned casual look that said “No one cares!” I forwent the curly hair becasue really? What mother of three has perfectly curled hair at 7:30 a.m. and I gave into the fact that I’ll probably be a 20 second blip in a segment! Totally giving in to the reality of it all surprisingly put me at ease! Almost to the point where I look way boring and dull! I’m a lot more spaztic in real life!
So weeks past and the air date finally came! I of course was anxious an questioned the outcome worried it was going to be social suicide! But I watch and was pleased with the lack of mortification! And again reality set in. That same night the lead stories were heart breakers. A local family lost two of their youngest daughters due to a tragic poisoning accident. 500 local school employees were going to be laid off due to budget issues. This was the real news! This was real life! Here I was nearly tortured by what to wear, what to say, how to hold my head to hide my double chin…And in the end I was again reminded that more important things are indeed more worthy of worry and attention!
So true to form in the end I’m a realist! As fun as it was to talk about blogging and cross my fingers for exposure and my 2 minutes of fame, I was humbled by the reminders that life is happening all around us! It put a lot into perspective for me! I love my blog! I love working hard and pouring myself into it! I love all of you who read it and send me such kind words of thanks! Honestly I LOVE it! But in the end there are so many more things in life worth celebrating and honoring and getting all worked up over!
