That’s a wrap, folks – 150 posts!

Don’t panic, it’s not a wrap on the blog, just on our pilot shoot.  I thought today, in honor of my 150th post…I can’t believe it…that I would share a couple of pictures from the filming of our television pilot version of Ma, What’s For Dinner.

Before we get to the good stuff, I’d first like to thank all of you.  My amazing readers, the wonderful community of fellow bloggers, and Moms and Dads and hungry people everywhere.  Thanks for spending time with us, for commenting on what we do, for taking an interest in us, and for just hanging out with us.  We enjoy you all so much and you’re the reason we do this everyday!

Ok, on with the show.  Last week was crazy.  Getting prepared to shoot a cooking show pilot took so much time energy I had no idea what we were up against.  But we managed to pull it off and in just a few short weeks, we’ll be able to see rough cut version of all our hard work.  We had such a great time.  Check out this amazing kitchen we got to shoot in!

That first shot is of all the people who helped us while we were shooting.  From the right we’ve got Mrs. Diane Barry.  She was our boots on the ground in Massachusetts.  She lined up everything from babysitters to hair and makeup.  She’s holding Cooper, who isn’t in wardrobe yet – notice how his shorts and shirt don’t match?  Next to Mrs. B is Fenton, our director.  He did an amazing job.  He’s next to Christian Fauria, 2-time Superbowl Champion with the N.E. Patriots, he was our first Celebrity Guest Chef.  Those 4 beautiful children there in the shot who don’t belong to me, yeah, those are his stunning children.  And they are awesome kids to boot!  The handsome one next to Christian is my hubs, Joe, then me with Brady and Keegan, then our awesome executive producer, Joel.  Next up is Joe who is doing all the camera work and editing.  These guys were great and made me feel so comfortable while being a total rookie in front of the camera.  I’m so used to being on the other side of it!

Just wanted to give you guys a little sneak peak.  It was an amazing experience and we can’t wait to get back to work.  Funny, I never thought I was so short until I looked at myself in these pics!  These guys are tall!!!  More to come, hopefully, on MWFD the TV show!
