A couple of weeks ago I promised, mainly myself, to post my plan to get me motivated and then we had a fun and crazy week that interrupted that plan! HA! Is that not how it always happens? You start to make a plan and all of a sudden you find yourself sidetracked!…Well, last week’s sidetrack was definitely a new adventure and a lot of fun. We were invited to show off some inexpensive Mother’s Day ideas on a local morning news show. Since most of the ideas were food, there was a lot of prep the night before and then getting up super early so we could be on the set at 5 AM. We did three different segments between 5:15 AM and 7 Am, splitting up the 5 projects and talking about each.What a great experience!
Here is a clip below of the first segment. I am a little bummed that the network did not post the other two segments, though. My daughter warmed up a lot more in the other two and the chocolate dipping video was probably the best one of all. Thank goodness for modern technology and the ability to schedule your TV to record or we would have missed it. There were so many things my daughter was saying to the news anchor that I did not hear at the time. Gotta love a girl who knows her chocolate dipping. (click here if you cannot see the video)
My Mom was able to join us on our adventure to help work the behind the scenes. She helped me prep the display and was there just in case Little Miss decided to going running around while filming, which she never did. Yes! And the only reason I look cute is because my mom found that shirt! AND another thank goodness to family, my Mom and Debra (SIL), who have cute decorations and let me borrow them! Someday I will have my own stash, but until then I am so glad they let me borrow from their cute stuff.
My daughter still talks about this “House” that she had lots of fun showing how to make chocolates. As you can see, she warmed up… a lot!!!
All these Mother’s Day ideas I shared can be used for Father’s Day, too. So make sure you check them out!

Your daughter is so cute and I love the way she talks. The news anchor must have really enjoyed talking to this cutiepie. I would love to do something like this for my daughter.
