I'm Going to be a Guest on the Rachel Ray Show

For the longest time, I've been debating how much to reveal on this blog. 

Should I put my name, my picture, my kids pictures? 

If you've been following this blog for a while, you know I haven't put too much personal information on this blog and I kind of like being private.  I think I'm a very average Mom.  I have an awesome husband and two sons that I adore.  I work part-time while being a full time SAHM.  I am truly blessed in so many ways.

One day, I was at the playground with my boys and my cell phone rang.  It was someone from the Rachel Ray Show.  Now, normally, I'm just kissing boo-boos and holding the sippy cups at the playground, so this was really exciting! The producer and I spoke for a while but in the end, that segment didn't work out.  I was thrilled that she called, but the segment just wasn't for me.

Fast forward a few months...

I'm at the mall and my cell phone rings again.  It was a cold winter morning, and desperate times call for desperate measures.  So, I was letting my kids play on the arcade rides in the mall just so we could have a cheap morning out.  The producer told me that they were looking for Moms with small children, and she thought I might be a good fit for the show.

Not long after that, I got a call to confirm that they wanted me to be a guest on the show with my son.  Woohoo!!!  My husband took the day off from work and we all went up to the Rachel Ray studio in New York City.   My son is so young that he probably won't remember our big day.  But, it really was a once in a lifetime experience that I'll never forget.

After the show airs, I will post some photos and more details.  But, for now, I just wanted to let you know to watch!  I'll be doing a product review on Rachel Ray's Human Lab Segment - Kids Edition this Friday, July 1st. See a clip here. So, if you've been reading this blog and wondered who the heck 'Local Fun for Kids Mom' was... well tune in on Friday to find out.
