What a whirlwind of a weekend this past weekend was. Holy moly. Thank you guys so much for all of your sweet comments on Friday's post about Female Fan Gameday Rituals contest! I really appreciate all of your kind words and congratulations. This past weekend we filmed the first part of that video, and it went really well.
Before I dive into that, I just really want to brag on my sweet boyfriend real quick. I never once asked him to help me get ready for them to come over to the house to shoot on Saturday. Not once. Yet he worked his butt off without any kind of hesitation. Every single day last week, he was working on the yard, cleaning, mopping, organizing... anything he could do so I could focus on getting my office presentable. The day of, he spent his entire morning cleaning up the house, doing laundry, vacuuming the floors, while I did my hair and makeup. I never once asked him, he just did it without ever making me feel guilty. He knew I would want to focus on getting gussied up for filming, and he took on all the dirty work without thinking twice about it.
I *might* have cried while giving him a big hug on Saturday, because I was just so touched by what he did for me the past week. I'm not sure what I've done in my life to deserve such a powerful love, but I sure am grateful I have it.
Friday night was spent watching the Rangers -- who clinched the AL West yesterday by the way -- and hanging picture frames in my office. I'll try to take pictures this week so I can show you guys the finished product.
They arrived at the house around 1pm on Saturday to setup and film! I was really freaking nervous, but they said I did pretty well, thankfully!
I had the WORST eye irritation the whole day on Saturday for some reason. My eyes were burning and running all day long, and I couldn't get any relief. Dang allergies! I'm praying that didn't come across in the video. After we finished shooting the first part at the house, we headed to my favorite place in Dallas, and what I am still going to call home even though I don't live there anymore: Deep Ellum.
The pups were the stars of this part of the show!
CB and I spent a small fortune on coupons -- you have to have coupons to buy any food or drink. The saddest (best?) part was that we used every last one of our coupons. I guess that's what happens when you spend $13 on a drink that comes in a pineapple.
We lost. Again.
And now it's Monday and there's a full work week ahead.
Whomp Whomp Whomp.
