Filming Take II

by Meghann on February 15, 2011

I’m exhausted.

Trying to film while also taking a two hour dance class is rough. Boy was I ready to get home this evening!


Filming was good though. After reviewing all the comments off of last week’s episode I was able to pick up a trick or two on how to improve this week’s show. Like taking my hand off of my hip and toning down the excitement a bit. Constructive criticism is good people! Keep it up!


The new episode should be up on next week. I also have a few other episodes lined up to film later this week. A host’s work is never done. ๐Ÿ˜‰

I had a defrosted Oatmeal Cookie Bar as a snack before the show this afternoon.


We wrapped up just before 9:00. Obviously at that point my stomach was grumbling so loudly I had trouble concentrating on anything else. To say the very least, I was HANGRY.

Before I left the apartment I had laid out some Chicken Sausage to defrost in the fridge and, thanks to my thinking ahead, all the sausage was needed a quick grill on the George Forman and I was ready to eat.


The Chicken Sausage was sandwiched between a thin bagel with spinach, deli mustard, and bbq sauce.


On the side some quick pan fried Asparagus


Take the Cake Ice Cream for dessert


Seriously long night.

I need sleep pronto.

Good night!

Your show looks like so much fun to host!! And P.S. I love that ice cream. I made the cake batter pancakes for dinner last night, they were pretty amazing, too. I think incorporating cake batter into anything isn’t a bad idea. If you ever want to check out Orlando Watersports Complex or film there, let me know and I can get you their info – I think it might be a great place to film your show! I’m going to be down there next month visiting everyone. I can’t waittt to get back to Florida!

You are definitely the master of the quick meal. I always seem to pick things that take hours to make.

You are the perfect personality to host a show ๐Ÿ™‚ So upbeat and energetic!! I think if you just act like yourself everything will go smoothly and won’t seem planned or anything! I could never do a 2 hour dance class, props to ya!!!

OMG I am soooo sad! I just found your blog about two weeks ago (Thanks to Mama Pea letting us know where she rolls!!!) and I just realized that I have completely caught up on your blog ๐Ÿ™ I guess I will actually have to work at work now. Its been fun ‘getting to know you’ and I cant wait for many more posts to come!!

P.S you and Derek are so super cute!!

23 Kacy February 16, 2011 at 10:52 am

That is a long night! I’m still searching EVERYWHERE for that ice cream and cannot find it!

24 Grace February 16, 2011 at 2:23 pm

I love asparagus! Hope your show taping went well, I had a really hard time getting it to load for some reason so never watched more than about 2 minutes of your first show=( Maybe it will be better this time? I hope!
