I'm so excited to share with you the 'behind the scenes' of my interview and cooking segment on Fox 9.  I have never been in a television studio and it was just as exciting as you would expect!

Well.  If you are a stay at home mom who doesnt get out much and is easily impressed.


When I arrived I walked into the studio where Karen Scullin was live reporting the news.  She was great!


I'm sorry these are so blurry… the sweet gal offered to take a
picture and I forgot to tell her how to use my camera… so you can see
that wall behind Karen is crystal clear! 😉

I sat down almost immediately and had my interview… I had no idea what it was about until about 27 seconds before it began.

This was my new best friend Dana's spot…she got me my microphone and told me to relax (I think she could sense my nervousness) and that it would all be just fine!

After the interview we went over to the 'kitchen' and I got all set up!



Very nice and helpful Ricky took this picture before we started.  (There is the Rainbow cake I forgot to get a picture of!)  The kids and DH were in the studio the whole time and were little angels!!  Having them there meant so much to me!


Here is Karen and I during the actual taping… Ricky had told me to pretend I was standing in my kitchen talking to my best friend about cooking.  So, thats what I did! 


Sorry this is so blurry and that I have alien eyes, but I was so happy when it was all over I was even willing to post for the camera!

So if you feel so inclined, go ahead and check out the segment here…and if you want to see all of the things I baked stop by i am baker.

And thanks for all the encouragement and support!  You guys are AMAZING!!

Share with your friends!
