Actually, the boots are mine. I loved the outfit but had to pass on the jeans and top for budgetary reasons.
Don't ask me about Monday, it's no fun. Let's move on to yesterday.
After work I flew to Hollywood, CA. I arrived at my hotel and promptly took in the scene. Cool, hip, fun.
I went down for dinner with one of the folks running this whole operation. Dinner was super yummy, we shared a couple appetizers and for my entree I had yet another appetizer, grilled octopus. It was just the right size and I enjoyed eating something I certainly wouldn't make at home. After dinner I met up with a co-secret-operation chick and went for an evening stroll.
Up bright and early this morning for Big Day #1. First to film some B roll (whatever the heck that is). Here I am with one of the producers and an intern.
|Say Hi to Rob Bender and Hannah Henrickson|
As I mentioned, I'm not alone in this whole thing, I have co-secret-operation chicks. Oh heck, I hope it's ok to mention the fellow bloggers with whom I'm having all this fun, Roni Noone from Roni's Weigh and Erika Kendall from A Black Girl's Guide to Weight Loss.
|Roni waiting for her time to shoot|
First up is Erika, who did my makeup, working her magic on my face.
Then off to hair, where Kristen continued with the prettying up.
|How cute is Robyn?!|
And there's Cee, prepping shoes while our hair and makeup gurus hang out.
So we're all set, ready to take some pictures!!
That's our super cool photographer Cheyenne Ellis getting things ready for us. Her energy was right up my alley, relaxed but serious. Did I mention she's gorgeous?!
|Thank you Cheyenne!|
But for now, I'll just share what I can...more pictures! Forgive me in advance for all the selfies. But hey, this is a blog, it goes along with the deal right?
|Lunch! You know I had cookies.|

|So I roped him for a selfie.|
|A total Glamour selfie with Roni. OMG, we are too much! I love it!!|
Tomorrow is Big Day #2. And I'm sure I'll write another equally secretive post to tell you as much as I can. And then it's back to my normal life. Unfortunately I didn't land a co-hosting gig on the Today show and I'm not on Amazing Race so this is a one-shot deal...really a two-in-one shot deal, well, actually, turns out it's a three-in-one but who's counting? Point is, tomorrow evening I'm heading back to my life.
Oh, last thing...after this whole big exciting day I mustered up the energy to exercise. I put on my running clothes and hit the streets of LA, running over the Hollywood Walk of Fame...which reminds me of a picture I forgot to share (gasp!)...I took this while out on that stroll last night with Roni...
|I love Bette Midler!|
Dinner was super yummy, with great company, and included a round of desserts. Now I'm back in the room sharing all the fun here. My next post will probably be this weekend when I hope to tell you I've been exercising consistently and eating, well, let's just focus on the exercise for now. I hope you enjoyed all the pics, night all! And Lindsey, I'll see YOU tomorrow!!
