Fancy Hair + Some Minted Winners
behind the scenes at the shoot...
Several months ago I was in NYC in the midst of a decidedly "pinch-me" moment...
I was there to be shot for the December issue of Better Homes and Gardens, an experience involving a huge, light-filled photo studio, racks of lovely clothes, hairdressers, make-up artists, caterers, super chic editors, stylists, a hilarious (and immensely handsome) photographer, and loads of confetti.
It was some seriously crazy (once in a lifetime, stories for the kiddos) business friends. Big time.
It was also seriously nerve-wracking...let's just say I am not so good at the whole having-my-photo-taken enterprise. It freaks my action out. But any trepidation was totally off-set by the loveliness of the aforementioned "village" at the shoot. Kind, funny, warm...just a really fantastic group of people.
the finished product...
The result recently hit newsstands, and I can safely say that my hair has never looked so bouncy -- it's a far cry from my standard disheveled vibe. Suffice to say, my mother is extremely proud.
Thank you Better Homes and Gardens for such an amazing experience.
Ok now for the really important stuff -- the winners of the Minted holiday card giveaway. Congrats Araya and Michele!
And last but not least happy, happy Thanksgiving friends. We're gearing up for some major consumption with back-to-back feasts. We'll celebrate with Bryan's folks tomorrow and then cook Thanksgiving dinner part II on Friday for a big group at our house. So I'm taking the rest of the week off to revel in the carbs.
Let the gratitude (and the eating) begin!
