eachpeachpearplum -No that was not all the food! There were 26 meals in all.
Thanks for all the comments. It really was loads of fun.
ReneeH - I don’t know what a F/A is?? Dawn Robinson wasn’t at the shoot, at least not as one of the cast.
Yes Cherie, my hair is straighter in this. I straightened it and then went to curl it but the curl just fell out so I have straight blond (er) hair. It’s a bit light for me. Not sure I like it but ill see when I actually view the show. I had to do my own makeup and hair as we were in a camp setting and I was kind of roughing it.
I’ve been up since 3:30 am. Couldn’t sleep. Could have been that my big headed labradoodle and his little miniature friend I got him were bouncing around the bed all night, but I think it was my brain spinning with ideas.
I’m interviewing two chefs today and trying to set up the restaurant and get everything ready by January. Dennis is trying to help but he’s focused on permits and the build out and being the control freak that I am, I’m not letting him do the other stuff. :)
I bought these beautiful cranberry velvet dining chairs and the tables will be copper. The guy who’s making the tables for us should have samples today or tomorrow so I can pick if I want it tarnished, hammered, etc…. Lots of little details to think about. Funny, im good at the huge decisions but not the little ones. Seems like too many important things happening in the word to have to worry about what kind of table bases to buy… but I guess it needs to be done…
Im going to try to get up to home depot today and pick out a wall color as well. Pumpkin color, I think, for the walls. Lots to do there and figure out.
Ok, just had to stop writing for the last 2 hours. I’m redesigning my site to reflect Alissa Live, the restaurant and some other stuff. Also designing the restaurant web site. so I’ve been on the phone non stop with my web guy.
Well, the next two weeks will be primarily focused on Alissa Live!. We are filming the beginning of Dec. I still have to pick recipes, buy bowls, plates, write a script, buy clothes (my least favorite thing to be doing).
Lots to do these next couple of months, between running the everyday business, new products ordered that will be up soon, setting up the restaurant, hiring people, designing the new sites, setting up the Alissa Live shoot, a couple of interviews and some articles that need writing… ok, well, as Dennis tells me when I get a bit stressed out “this is what you asked for, right?”
HA! Yep so I did, so I did…
