Yesterday, I was on The Rachael Ray Show! I can't even believe I just typed that! A few weeks ago, I got an email that stopped me in my tracks...the subject line said, "RACHAEL RAY SHOW" ...just like that in big, capital letters. They wanted to know if I would be interested in putting together a quick DIY hack video for them, and of course, I said yes! I had a quick phone conversation with one of the producers and we decided on Buffalo Chicken Deep Dish Pizza using a bread bowl, and she told me that if I felt comfortable, I could record the video myself and send it to her for editing. I've been working on video quite a bit lately, so I was super excited for the opportunity to shoot it myself!
I kicked my family out of the house for a few hours on a rainy Saturday and recorded the tutorial from a few different angles so hopefully they could put together a decent video for the show. Let me tell you...I've never been more nervous and critical of myself in my entire life. Watching and hearing yourself back on video is really hard y'all! I finished recording the video, sent them over to the show, and waited until Monday to hear back. I was soooo terrified that they would get back with me and tell me it wasn't going to work, but they didn't. They loved it!
Last week, the producer emailed me to say it would be airing on the Tuesday, January 31st episode, so I braced myself. It turned out better than I imagined it would, and has sparked a new interest for me! I'll be sharing more videos with myself included in them going forward. I feel like this will allow me to connect with you on a more real level, and I hope it will help make the steps in some of my DIY posts easier to follow...sometimes just following picture directions is hard.
