Sonoran Living Segment – Last Minute Valentines

Ask and you shall receive…

Several friends, family and readers have asked to see my Segment on Sonoran Living that was this past Monday.

Let me say – it was a TON of fun! I was a bit nervous, but they are so fun and relaxed on set and that definitely helped! I was so excited to be sharing a ton of last-minute DIY Valentines and had no idea we’d be talking about Pinterest at all, but I didn’t mind considering Pinterest has really helped my traffic! It’s a great way to find awesome stuff but also to get your stuff out on the web!

Any who – back to the segment… SO, Lo got the morning off so he could come with me and my mom was kind enough to come watch the kids. We took off pretty early because I wanted to make sure I got there with plenty of time. I was one of the first ones there. I got my table set up and just waited for the time the show went live. I was EXTREMELY excited to find out that Chris Powell from Extreme Makeover: Weight Loss Edition was on the show that day. He came into the Green Room with his wife and baby and I just had to act cool and not freak out like I wanted to inside. The hubby and I watched the whole first season of EMWLE so we love Chris and love how inspirational he is by helping so many people lose weight. We had a nice chat with him and his wife, and it made us like him even more. He also has an adorable son named Cash that I was able to hold and play with for awhile. He is so stinkin’ cute, and he made me miss my Evie even more that morning. It was fun sitting in the Green Room watching everyone come on and was even more fun when they called me over and had me put on my mic. I went onto stage and talked to Stephanie for a bit and before I knew it we were live! And then before I knew it, it was all over! I felt like I didn’t say any of the things I had practiced or wanted to mention. Oh well!! I had a good chat with Stephanie afterwards and was so happy that she allowed me to be on the show. In case you missed any of the Valentines I posted here on the blog, you can find a round-up of them HERE. I know V-Day is over, but you can always bookmark and pin them for next year. 🙂

Without further adieu, here is my first TV appearance.

{And yes, unfortunately, I’m just this nerdy in person!}

      Haha – I kinda was!! It was as if I was nervous leading up to that day and then was super calm when I was there, and then got super nervous once I saw the flashing light on the camera meaning we were live. It’s just hard knowing that if you make a mistake there’s nothing you can do about it when you’re taping live. Haha!! Glad it’s done. 🙂

    How cute are you!! SO NOT nerdy!! I would probably drop anything I tried to pick up, or end up knocking down my whole display because I’d be so nervous. You were really natural and seemed relaxed. And WOW Chris is a hottie! You lucky gal LOL
