I got a little blog news for you today:
I’ve been sitting on some blogging excitement over here, and I wasn’t sure whether it was all clear to scream from the nearest cell tower or not. So I was waiting. But then I got tired of waiting and, you guys… I’M GOING TO HOLLYWOOD. Or at least, I’m going to the Hallmark Channel for the day. Close enough.
Those of you who follow me on social media probably saw me awkwardly begging for votes and likes on the video I submitted.
That’s what a one-minute application video looks like when your kids are napping for 90 minutes one afternoon! When I saw the caliber of the other videos and the subsequent avalanche of Likes and Comments that some of them received… let’s just say I wasn’t all that worried about picking an LA wardrobe. But then, I get this little nugget in my email box:
ON. MY. BIRTHDAY. How’s that for awesome timing?!
Because there was such a strong response from applicants, they decided to change things up and bring out 25 finalists! We each get to tape one segment on the Hallmark Channel’s Home and Family and then they’ll narrow THAT group down to five.
Here’s what I’ve been doing to prepare. I’ve booked every cosmetic procedure I can think of. Manicure? Check. Teeth whitening strips? Check. I also got a new lipstick so I’m feeling like I might have an unfair advantage over the other finalists. Sorry, guys. It’s a nice natural rose color.
I’m not going to tell you what I’m making, but it IS something I’ve made before on the blog. The show isn’t live, but it is “live to tape” which is a phrase I enjoy to no end. I feel like it casually makes me sound super profesh. I’ll only be out there for a couple of days, but I’ll share as much of the behind the scenes fun as I can! Check me out on Facebook or Snapchat (@ciburbanity) as that’s probably where I’ll be posting the most.
Best part? They do my HAIR AND MAKEUP! I will travel a lot further than L.A. to look like a fully functional, fully bathed human.
They do NOT provide my wardrobe, so sadly I have to figure out what ensemble will make me look 10 years younger, 10 pounds lighter, and 10 IQ-points wittier! What to wear, what to wear?!
(Oh… just between you and me, I’m hoping that one of the other guests is a Real Housewife. It’s possible!)
