Extra Extra Read All About It

Who knew that being an extra was such hard work?!  I feel like I ran a marathon last night (not that I've ever run a marathon, but I 'm thinking you would feel somewhat like I do right now).  

I think the biggest challenge was the fact that I was dressed for the hottest summer day in Charleston for 6.5 hrs when it was actually 45 degrees outside.  Yes, we were outside the entire time.  I was clinching and shivering so much that my body got an intense workout.  Who needs a massage?  This actress does! ;)

Was it worth it?  Yes.  

Would I do it again? Probably.  

I have to admit a silly little error on my part.  When I received the original e-mail with it's 50 million instructions, I thought it said $58 dollars/hour.  I was floored.  That means $300 of my own?  Mama's bringing home the bacon!?  Yes sir sign me up every day!  

I found out that it was actually $58/day when I got there.  That comes out to about $7/hour.  Womp womp.

Teensy weensy bit of a difference there, wouldn't you say.  Oh well.  It was for the amazing experience, not the money (or so I keep telling myself).  

I shot scenes with these two beautiful people.

I hope everyone has a wonderful Easter weekend and Spring Break next week (if you haven't already had it).  

We will be gone...again...for Spring Break.  I have some great news, though.  Natalie, Christina, and Caycee will all be guest posting next week while I'm away!  I can't wait to see what goodness they're bringing to Baby Mama Juice!

p.s.  Why do I drink Baby Mama Juice?  Because the contractor we hired to convert the storage room to the play room is stiffing us.  Lovely.  Why do people suck?
