Day 3

So I found a safe picture to show you all. Safe meaning there are no projects in the picture or any people. Just my garage set up with the Kraft services table (that means a lot of snack food) and the director type chairs where people sit and watch monitors of all that we're doing.

Exciting, no?

So day three started early again, and it was non stop fun and excitement all day. Well, we were actually pretty tired, so we got to play pretend and act really excited like we were having a lot of fun.

The girls got to do a project with one of the Home Mavens, Wanda Colon(pronounced like cologne). You can Google her so that I don't get in trouble for posting any pictures of her.

I can't tell you what they did, but it was very cute, and I'm sure it will be awesome in the room I haven't seen yet.

I'm all about suspense.

Jeff and I got to work with Patrick Brown, the other Home Maven, on some projects for the girls' room and for the laundry room. All of which I am really excited about. And I got to tell them about 10 times how excited I was and how perfect it would all be and how amazing this was going to turn out.

Then I got to do one project by myself with Patrick. He is super nice, really easy to work with, and could handle being teased and teased us right back, so we got along well. You probably won't see any of that back and forth on the actual show. But zooey mama, it was funny.

I also found that I had to edit myself, alot. Which I am not used to doing. There was one part of our segment with Patrick where Jeff was using a power drill to screw something in. Patrick was saying that it was nice that Jeff was handy. It was all I could do to keep from saying "that's why I married him, he's good with his hands". But I'm pretty sure they would have edited that out.

The girls did so well in their segment with Wanda. They were totally at ease, completely themselves, and if I do say so myself, absolute naturals at this whole t.v. thing. So they had a well deserved break afterwards.

And then they both promptly fell asleep on the couch.

Oh wait, so did I. During some down time I was sitting on the couch looking out the window,and the next thing you know, I was out. I was plum tuckered and just a tad sleepy.

I also got to tell Patrick a story I have been waiting months to tell him. Maile was over one day watching the show with me. Patrick was doing some sort of handyman type thing and I said to her, "Look at Patrick's biceps!"(which are pretty massive). And she, mishearing me, said" His name is Patrick Biceps?". And I, laughing, said "No, it's Patrick Brown". To which she replied, "Well, it SHOULD be Patrick Biceps."

I told him this with no one else around so that I wouldn't embarass him. Just in case you thought I had no sense of decorum at all. Wait, did you ever think I had any sense of decorum?

Don't answer that.

Anyway, I know you're wondering about the catered lunch. I will probably never eat food like this again on a consistent basis for the rest of my life, so it's been fun. Today we had a choice of veggie or turkey burger with all the fixins. Some sort of AMAZING tomato cream pasta, a fantastic salad with balsamic dressing, and these awesome little chocolate cupcakes which I'm pretty sure may have been mocha flavor, but I didn't know that until I popped one in my mouth.

So whatev!

But the best part? The caterer let me keep the rest of the pasta and the rest of the dressing. So it was kind of like my birthday.

Well, tomorrow is our last day :( I have had tons of fun and I think I could do this on a more permanent basis if I got paid for it, and if my family could come and if I got to do whatever I wanted and no one ever reigned me in. Do they have jobs like that?

But it's been an adventure and I'm super excited (for real) about the reveal tomorrow. So I'll be back with more details and I'll find out when I can post actual pictures about all of this. Of course, if you live by me, you can totally come see it when it's done. They can't control that. So ha! I mean, so there! Wait, I mean, I totally understand that they want to protect the reveal so as to not ruin the ratings for our episode. Or something like that.

So until tomorrow.


  1. I am so living vicariously through you right now! What an exciting time to be Amy! (Oh, I wish I had television!!)

  3. I just have to say that it sounds like you guys are having so much fun! Do you have any idea when you'll be on tv? Cause I totally want to watch.

  4. Amy! What a fun adventure! I can't wait to see it.

    And I must add that I love the fact that the caterer letting you keep the rest of the pasta and the rest of the dressing = your birthday! ha!
