Featured . . .

It's been a fun week in the blogger world for me. I feel a little overwhelmed. I was interviewed for an article that should show up sometime this weekend in The Salt Lake Tribune. I'm guessing on Sunday. The newspaper sent a photographer yesterday and I scrambled to make myself, the house and the little girls presentable.

Before the photographer arrived, Lilly whispered to me, "I have a funny feeling in my tummy." "Me too," I replied. I hate getting my picture taken. I am just so not photogenic so I really really hope they are kind to me.

Wanting to get a realistic picture, the photographer asked me what we would normally be doing on a Thursday morning at 10 am. "Well," I answered, "we might be reading books or playing games. I should be folding the five baskets of clean laundry that I stashed in the closet before you arrived." He laughed and said that he had seen a lot of freshly vacuumed houses. Oh ya. We totally ran the vacuum all over before he arrived. I took piles of paper work off my desk and hid it in my bedroom. I didn't get to sweep the kitchen floor but I kept him out of there. I am certainly not a food blogger. No business in the kitchen.

It wasn't too painful. Now I'm just anxious and a little nervous to read the article. Be kind. Be kind.

I'm also featured briefly today on a darling blog : What Dee Dee Wants and her one question interview about the best advice from my mom. Check out her blog. It's stylish and fun.

Can't wait to see this article! I would hate a photo shoot, too. But I'm sure it will turn out great. Fun stuff!

Hi Cindi,
It was fun to read about you and see your pictures. My house was a complete mess and smelled a bit of a dirty diapers when the photographer came. I immediately said, "Can we go outside?" He still wanted to come in and take a picture. Luckily, the indoor photo only shows my couch. :)
