All blue AGAIN...





The flames and sandwiches vinyl has been removed, the tv spot has been accomplished, the coupons have all been passed out and the rolling blueberry minivan is back! I nearly forgot what our car looked like underneath all the flames and logos, but I have to admit, it's gorgeous!

My thoughts on doing this project:

It was fun to...
meet and talk to people
be noticed and watch people's expressions at our unconventional minivan
have all the kids at Ward Elementary School look longingly at our car, wishing they had a pimped out car like ours
pass out coupons with my children at the grocery store, I'm so proud of them. They were fierce!
laugh along with all of Westchester as I passed by
receive a crate of BBQ products I was advertising and taste the delicacies
do this
get paid to do what I normally do during the day with a few extracurricular activities along the way

Would I do it again?

Absolutely.

And many of you are asking...

The tv shoot was an adventure! We started off at 9am with Chris and Matt (the cameraman and producer) following me throughout my day. We went to volleyball (which turned to basketball due to net technical difficulties), preschool pick up, back home for "the interview" (I really hope I look as glamorous as the ladies on the View!) elementary pick up and passing out coupons at Stop & Shop. They left at 5. I was running on adrenaline all day so I went to bed when the kids went to bed...literally sacked out. I'll link the final cut to my blog when it's all edited.

I can't wait to see the video. You never know, this may be the start of bigger things for you. :)

I forgot we had a blue minivan too! It totally caught me off guard the first time I saw it Friday and still made me do a double take today. I suppose I'll get used to going back to normal...

I can't wait to see the shoot and claim that "i knew you when..." It will be weird to see you pull up in a "normal" car!

I think it is awesome that you did this, what a great way to make some extra bucks! If I did something like that Kaitlyn would absolutely love it! So glad that I missed volleyball/basketball last week, the last thing I would need is to imagine what I look like when the camera adds 5 more lbs.!
