Today was one of the most AMAZING days of my life. I wish I could share it all with you now, but unfortunately, I have to spare most of the details of my Dr. Oz Show experience until after it airs. And I STILL don't know when that is going to be!
The flights were uneventful--yay! I didn't even take any Xanax. I was worried it would make me too tired when I got to the studio, so I endured the flight without it. The flight was only an hour and a half. I was completely in AWE when I was flying into La Guardia airport. I could see the city perfectly, and it was amazing:
I was completely overwhelmed by the enormity of the city. I've been to NYC once before, but I was only 16 years old--not old enough to really appreciate the hugeness of it.

The whole 24 hours that I was there went by so quickly! I met some AMAZING people--all the producers, and some of the technical crew, and the hair stylists and make-up artists. I couldn't believe how much work went into the show. I also met a woman named Jennie, who is the first guest that will appear. Her story was unbelievable, and nearly made me cry before it was my turn on set. I felt like my story didn't hold a candle to hers!
Right now I'm terrified of seeing the actual show. I wore a sleeveless dress, and you know I hate my arms. So I just hope they don't look absolutely horrible. But the dress situation was awful, and I will explain all of it later. All my friends and family are super excited to watch the show--I'll be so embarrassed if I look ridiculous.
I ate really well while I was there. Actually, I under ate--not on purpose. Yesterday, I just had a Larabar for lunch on the plane, then I didn't eat dinner until 6. I was at my hotel, so I just walked around the block and bought something to bring back to the room. I ate until I was satisfied, and ditched the rest :) Then today, I was too nervous and then busy to eat anything all morning. I ate lunch at the airport at 2:00 pm. Then I had some chocolate covered almonds on the plane, and that's it for the day. I might have a snack now.
Anyways, on the plane today I wrote down (with a pen and paper--been a while since I've journaled that way!) all the details of the past two days, so I will share everything after the show airs.
When I arrived home, I went to pick up my kids from my mom's house, and was greeted with this:
I wish I could leave my hair and make-up like this forever!!
