Almost Famous!

OMG! Do you know what is happening Friday at Buford Betty's house? Do you know, do you know? Should I tell you? Yes? OK I give... OMG! The Food Network is coming to my house Friday afternoon to film in my kitchen! OMG! And the hub and I, and some of our friends are gonna be IN it! Like on TV! Like sorta kinda almost famous!

OK not really, but I'm sure they'll be so overwhelmed with my beauty and talent in front of the camera and insist that I host some new concept show they're dreaming up. Should I start packing now? Well I really don't have a ton of details - it all happened really fast and I honestly didn't have much of anything to do with it. It all started with my friend responding to a Craigslist ad. They always have ads on there for casting calls and random stuff like this - pretty cool if you've never checked it out. She's always on there looking for little odd jobs and fun stuff like this. She once got paid $500 to open and close cabinet doors at some home show in town.

Anyway, so - last week she tells me about answering this ad and then over the weekend she got a call... they (the producers) wanted kitchen pics and she talked us into sending pics of OUR kitchen, along with hers... and we ended up getting chosen! They're sending us a check this week to buy ingredients for whatever it is we're doing... I think it's like a long commercial or something, but again - I know very little. Once I get some more info, I may have to get some ideas from the creative cooks out there on what to buy. All I know is that we're supposed to buy some ingredients for a challenge (two other couples - including my friend and her hubby - being the challenged). And yeah - no idea what to get. AND it has to be a surprise to the other couples, so it's not like we can discuss it with them! Ahhh!!!!

OK so I'll come back when I have a little more insight - and I'm hoping y'all can help! And just think... whenever this airs and you see it, you can be like, "OMG that's Buford Betty and you see that [insert ingredient here] she's working with? Yeah that was my idea." And then you'll be sorta kinda almost famous, too! Ahhhhhhh!!!!!!
