Daily Diary: Just Wrapped A Two Day Shoot For Restaurant Business Magazine (GOT THE COVER)

A few days ago, I was contacted by Restaurant Business Magazine. They are doing a piece on the Top 50 People To Follow In Social Media…AND THEY PICKED ME AS ONE OF THEM!!!

Wait it gets better –

The list will include restaurant owners, celebrity chefs and 5 bloggers. Guess who freaking got the cover? No, I can’t believe it either. I’m actually in DENIAL about the whole thing. Yesterday, the photographer came to my house and took a few shots of me with the kids around my desk. Today, we headed to Novita – a local restaurant that I love love love – and shot the cover.

I found enough courage to wear that Banana Republic shirt I bought a few weeks ago. Have to say I loved the way it looked! You can’t see my shoes, but I wore REALLY HIGH black heels with skinny jeans and this necklace.

It was funny because the kids weren’t allowed to eat their chicken nuggets until we wrapped. They were literally licking the french fries in between takes. LOL. I will let you know when it’s in circulation. However, I’m not sure we will be able to check it out because it’s an industry magazine. I don’t think it’s something you can find at your local Barnes and Nobles. I’m going to beg for a copy!!!


What a day.
