If you follow me on Facebook, Twitter, Instagram or any of my other social mediums, then you know that I have recently signed on to be the star of my own reality show.

HA. Yeah, right. But, seriously, I did allow a camera crew into my home earlier this week for the taping of a segment about gluten-free beauty products and snacks.

Let me tell you, there’s a reason I’m a writer, people. I was more than a little freaked out.

Check out some of the behind-the-scenes shots:

Have you ever brushed your teeth on camera? Yeah, I don’t recommend it. I was especially freaked out about this one. Let me tell you: It’s really hard to look cute and brush your teeth!

I hated the bathroom shots because that’s the one room in the house we still haven’t painted and it still looks like a salmon threw up all over the walls. But, hey, hopefully everyone is so busy watching me brush my teeth that they don’t even notice, right?

I will keep you posted on the details about where this is going to air, so you can see me in all my bathroom prep glory. This was an especially interesting adventure. At first, I was fairly nervous to get in front of the camera, but I think I managed to loosen up a bit and have some fun with it. The segment will feature my thoughts on gluten-free beauty products, in addition to some suggestions for my favorite snacks. Woo hoo!


In other news this week, we had some kitty drama. You all know how much I love my fur babies. So when Emerson, our gray cat, started acting funky, I was especially worried. After two days of not eating and ignoring us, we took him to the vet to find out he had an extremely high temperature and pretty bad kidney infection. She said we caught it in enough time that it won’t cause permanent damage, but, man, did he have his mom and dad worried! He had to stay at the vet for the last few days, but I got to visit him yesterday:

Not a happy camper! But he comes home today and we are prepped to LOVE HIM UP. His twin brother has been so stressed without him that he has been up all night crying for the last few days. He finally passed out a bit ago — poor kid is snoring:


Tomorrow, I will be at the Magee Women’s Hospital of UPMC Family Fair, March 23rd, 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. at the Children’s Museum of Pittsburgh! It will be an awesome event packed with family health experts, cooking demos, and nutrition, health, and wellness resources from local businesses. We will have gluten-free granola, cookies, cupcakes, and info about my sister’s upcoming race, The Sweet Sprint. (Dash to the finish for a cupcake?! Why not?!) Oh, and our table is sponsored by KIND bars, so the first 300 people get a treat from them!

The cost of admission at the door will be $13/person. For directions, please visit Will we see you there?!

Happy Friday, cupcakes! ♥
