Wordful Wednesday

Before 30 minute meals, Rachel Ray ran her own gift basket business. Prior to Everyday Italian, Giada was a food stylist for the Food Network.

Well, way before Live.Love.Eat, 4 1/2 years to be exact, I, too, set out for greatness. Take a look my friends. This is the woman behind the apron.



I never did get to Hollywood that day but I received something far greater. The ability to incessantly laugh at myself no matter how many times I watch this over the years as well as the joy & laughter from my son as he watches me do the robot to one of his first loves in music, The Wiggles. And a reminder that if I ever stop being silly, to just start right back up again. Toot toot chugga chugga my friends.

I cannot wait for my kids to wake up so I can show them this. You definitely should have been paid for this, but maybe knowing the enjoyment you bring to others is payment enough? :)

There is something to be said about being able to laugh at yourself. Thanks for sharing that!

Rebeckah said...

I didn't know it was possible to love you more than I already did, but know I do : ).

I have to make an appetizer for our Bible Study tonight, so I sat Gary down at the computer on your blog and told him to pick something : ). I know anything that you recomend will be a hit!

Rebeckah said...

Ok. I think we are going to go with the shrimp puff pastry thingers, or the sausage wontons. HOW CUTE are they? Or the tomato mozzorella snackers. Hmmmmmmmm. Gary is excited. He is looking at more things now. Like the meat. He said "A man needs MEAT" Whatever : ).

scargosun said...

You rock. You also reminded me that I need to stop taking myself too seriously. You wouldn't be able to tell that from my blog but sometimes I become 'stick up her whatever' girl.

gingela5 said...

Oh that is GREAT! I love the robot!

Kacey Randolph said...

Can't wait to show this to Ryder - he will LOVE it. I'm glad to see you have some moves sista! I'm WILLING rythem into all three of mine - because they sure aren't going to get it from Daddy.

Oh - and if you don't already - you MUST get all of Jack's cds. There is no way to just pick one fave. He's playing now...

Thanks for making me laugh - silly will get you through lots of good stuff!

Briony said...

Haha. Love it. You must be a fun mommy.

Tabitha Blue said...

I think I'm at that exact same 'hump'... at the same spot.! He's still in the Shack and they're still talking. Hopefully I'll finish this weekend too! :)

Scary Mommy said...

Oh, I love you. And, I'm totally confident that you are headed for really big things! Rachael Ray is way over, anyway ;)

Sweet Serendipity said...

Now that's hilarous! Thanks :D
And I remember the Wiggle Days so well. My first was a fanatic and sang The Big Red Car song all the time.

Michelle said...

LOL! You silly girl.....With talent like that, you should be more than a blogger star! :)

Deanna said...

You are hysterical! (And you owe me a new laptop...I think I just ruined mine when water shot out my mouth from laughing.)

Amy said...

Love it! Thanks for stopping by! A magical WW to you!

Lindsay said...

Hilarious!

The Rockin' Wife said...

So cute, you should have sent it in to American Idol. I swear you would have made the show (well, it MAY have been one of the first ones with all the auditions to laugh at, but still) Not saying it was "bad", just fun!

Pam said...

You crack me up! I think I used to do a similar dance a few years ago.

Jori-O said...

I am so impressed that you put that out for the whole world to see! I totally want to be like you when I grow up...dancing queen and all! =)

HeatherY said...

That is hilarious! Those are some serious moves. Move over Wiggles!

Susan said...

So cute! We love the silliness around here too. My husband makes sure we have at least a little of it each day, but unfortunately, or maybe fortunately, we don't have a video camera to record the fun.
Glad you posted that!
By the way, noticed you are reading The Shack. I read it at the beach this summer and loved it.

The Blonde Duck said...

Send it to the Soup!

Octamom said...

I love it, I love it, I love it! Did I see a sprinkle of Running Man in there?!?!?

Blessings!

Mom Taxi Julie said...
