ABC 33/40

So.......let me give a little background info.

I joined the Hats and Horns Societe' of Birmingham this past year. Each year this group of young professionals organizes a NYE party which benefits two local children's charities. This group has been supporting TBC for years and I knew I had to be a part of it. It is a great event at the B & A Warehouse with a full dinner buffet, two bands, silent auction and open bar. Tickets are still available - so if you are looking for something fun to do this NYE visit

Edie, John Lyda {who is president of H&H} and I arrived at the ABC 33/40 studio around 8:45. We were finally called back around 9:45. Edie had a cup full of goldfish and a lot of milk over the course of the morning while waiting, so I was worried of what may come back up later. Once we were called back we literally ran to the set, got our microphones, introduced ourselves and then we were live.

During the segment before us children were testing out toys. The toys were still there, in a pile, including a kitchen set! Which is one of Edie's favorite things at school right now. Edie wanted nothing more than to get to the toys. At the last minute the camera man did hand her a toy to satisfy her. At one point a piece of the toy fell and hit my leg and I just knew Edie had spit up. Luckily I was wrong. Eventually by the end of the segment Edie did make her exit to the toys.

And with all of the commotion I completely fumbled through my words. As Scott likes to say "I resembled Miss. South Carolina {"and such as"}. Never the less we did it and we are making a comeback!! This coming Tuesday we will be on Fox 6 at 7:45 am. This should be interesting!

    I thought you did great! Jackie

  2. Love it! When you add a squirmy toddler in the mix, you never know what is going to happen. Any parent understands that! :)
    You were fabulous!
