When I was a little girl I sometimes dreamt of being an actor. That obviously didn’t happen, as I grew I decided that it was an impractical idea to say the least. In my head I just was not pretty enough, not funny enough, not smart enough, just not enough. The possibilities felt too far out of reach for my liking and I flat out gave up. I know, I know, quitter alert womp, womp ?. Flash forward to now, I’m 31 years old and I feel like I’m enough in just about every aspect of myself (most of the time). With the help of my love muffin, Ian, I’ve managed to create two adorable little dudes who are hilarious, kind, smart and not shy at all when it comes to the camera. Get to the point-I was in Bluestem Bistro, my most favorite, wonderful, amazing LOCAL coffee shop in the world ?☕️, when a lady approached me asking if I’d be interested in acting in a commercial she was creating. I said of course, and emailed her the info she asked for including pictures of our little family. Once her boss approved of us we were cast in the commercial, (all of us excluding Cy, he was only about 15 months old at the time). The experience was outstanding. Don’t get me wrong, it wasn’t easy! We didn’t even have one line and it was still difficult! We loved it so much that when she asked us to be in another we jumped at the chance. Then about 3 weeks later a friend of mine asked if we, including Cy, could possibly be extras for a Carlos O’Kelley’s commercial. We actually ended up being featured in that commercial as well! I was doing what I do best, eating ?.
They were such fun and exciting experiences and honestly a dream come true for me! Links to the commercials are below ?
