almost famous - our new commercial!

We recently told you that Stacy was contacted by Microsoft to be featured in one of their "Real Life Stories" commercials for their Office 2010 campaign. Hello, of course she said yes! So one day in November an 8-person camera crew took over her house and spent 12 hours following her around and filming her. Being the sweet friend that she is, she invited Jess and I over to be a part of the filming, and we all made the final cut! In fact, the entire commercial is about this very blog! It was such a fun experience, and we were so pleased with the result. It really captures our adventures in blogging, and Stacy did such a great job explaining just why we do what we do. So without further ado, here it is. And don't worry--we'll remember all our readers when we become BIG stars. ;)


(Cue dramatic award music here) We want to especially thank our Microsoft production liaison Kris (we told you about his band last month--he's awesome!) and the entire production crew who were so patient and professional, Stacy's mom Barbara for keeping all the kids quiet with nothing more than french fries in a tiny bathroom during filming, Marta from Creative Yarn whose crochet pictures are featured from one of our past posts, Tamara from Lasting Memories who created the recipe tin featured, and our dear friends Melynie and Kayleen, who really did all the work on the bulk chocolate order. We couldn't have done it without you!
