As y’all know, I was on The Daily Dish and Good Things Utah yesterday! It was such a great, albeit nerve wracking experience for me!
I stayed up late the night before making sure I had everything ready. I had a million and one things to bring with me and I was so afraid I would forget something important.
I also hardly slept the night before. I think I woke up every hour! It reminded me of the night before I was induced to have two of my children. Yes, I felt like I was going to give birth. It was very freaky.
I woke up yesterday morning, got ready and gathered all the things I needed. Kev snapped this pic of me (with an “I am stressing out!” look on my face) as I was “making a list and checking it twice” to make sure I had everything.
I was too worked up to eat a real breakfast, so I just grabbed a bag of almond M&Ms as we ran out the door. I knew chocolate would make me feel better!
When we got there, I went to the kitchen and started setting up!
At this point I was pretty much running on adrenaline. The morning news was going on in the very next room. It was a little surreal. I just kept reminding myself to be confident and not to worry! Easier said than done, by the way.
The camera guys came and hooked me up with a mic. I saw all the hosts arrive on the set, but didn’t get to actually meet them until my segment. I must mention that the ladies on Good Things Utah are absolutely gorgeous. TV does not do them justice! I really think TV adds 10 pounds because they all looked super skinny and just so so gorgeous! Nicea Degering is especially nice and Gretchen Jensen is just breathtakingly beautiful!
Anyway, I somehow got through both of my segments and managed to live to tell about it! It was very fun, but very scary. I dare say it might have been one of the scariest things I’ve ever done! The whole “live TV” thing freaked me out a bit because I had no idea what they were going to ask me!
Kev forgot to take pics of my first segment, but here are a couple pics from my second segment on Good Things Utah with Ann Sterling. She was very sweet, nice, genuine and just teeny tiny btw.
My lifelong friend Becky came to the set to watch me and of course Kev was there. I was so glad to have both of them there. They offered tremendous emotional support and helped me to clean things and get things ready.
Here are the segments from my shows….
The Daily Dish (I made Coconut Chia Seed Protein Balls)
Good Things Utah (I made Healthy Spinach Artichoke Dip and homemade Pita Chips)
Overall, I think it went well! I was worried I would stumble over my words or just completely draw a blank! Miraculously, I survived. After the show, I was able to take a picture with the wonderful hosts. They were all so so nice and asked if I would be willing to be on the show again. I of course said yes, but I just don’t want to think about it right now!
The hosts are all dressed to the nines with perfect hair and makeup! I feel a little bit like a frump next to them, lol!
I’m glad it’s over. Pheeewww. xoxo
