Behind the scenes at Good Morning Texas!

Wow! This week has been a whirlwind! I got the call, well...really, email that I had been chosen to be on the "Mompreneur" segment on Good Morning Texas. First I was estatic, then I was really nervous!
I spend the time since getting my products ready for television. The only hint they gave me was the "more visual, the better" so I enlarged my designs and mounted them on foam board.
I will take you through my exciting morning!


At the entrance of the WFAA Channel 8 studios in Victory Park, downtown Dallas. Its surrounded by glass so you can see the newscasts as they happen!


Its sinking in that I will be on TV in just a few minutes...AHHHHH!!


Countdown is on...the show starts at 9:00!



Ready to air....

The segment starts. She asks me NONE of the questions I had prepared, and takes the interview a different way completely. This is totally okay, as I am totally professional. I only freak out on the inside. Right?
Wow. I don't think I have ever seen my name that big! I am glad its spelled right. Although, I really wouldn't care if it wasn't!
This is on the GIANT screen outside of Victory Park.


This one makes me laugh because whatever I am talking about must be really serious. Look at the intense card face.



Questions.....



More Questions....




And Volia! The website link! Yay!


And finally, the interview is over! It FLEW by! I pose for a photo with Paige. And she placed an order for Christmas cards! What a compliment!



My friend, Joanne, stood outside the glass window and brought a poster. You know, channeling the Today Show. The camera guy asked if she was a stalker! I just said she was my only friend and cheering section! They asked her to be on camera but she said she didn't want to "steal my spotlight". She probably thought they would ask her to co-anchor next time..she does have that star quality. :)
What an exciting day! Thanks for sharing it with me!
Next post- see how my design turned into CAKE! YUM!
Coming up- Fall Wedding Inviations!
