Day 35 – January 13, 2011

This morning was an even earlier morning. I had to be ready to go at 6:30am!! My boss wanted to go down memory lane and go see where his wife and him, plus their first kid lived when he was stationed in Ft. Hood. First we went to Copperas Cove then Killeen. Once he was satisfied, we went for breakfast at Denny’s.

We got back to the hotel at 11:15am. We had to take photos of the groups and video tape the VPs for the final part of the video. We thought that would be it, however, the VP asked us to videotape the line dancing competition at Stubb’s. Off we went…

Walking to Stubb's.. he had the video camera and tripod. I just had my DSLR

Before we were due to video tape again, we got to have a fabulous dinner! Ribs, brisket, sides, dessert… everything was great (except for the peach cobbler). My boss decided he wasn’t going to get his clothes dirty..

gotta love the makeshift bib

There was a line dancing lesson


Then they were expected to follow along

Reps in action.. sorta

Then there was a competition! After Stubb’s, there was a bar crawl… the reps were apprehensive about being video taped at the bars, so instead of being asked a bunch of times if we were videotaping, we decided to drop off the equipment then go to the bars. We got to the second one where me, the VP, and ML (training coordinator from Canada) danced and danced, until we were made to leave for the next bar. The one we liked best was Maggie Mae’s… EE & her C met us up there. Got back to my room close to 3am and boy were my feet killing me!! It was a lot of fun though!

Tomorrow, I get to sleep in!!


Day 33 – January 11, 2011

Today was a crazy day — I had to do stuff for work, go to the office, pack, and send you a package. I put all the packaged baked goods in a Lululemon bag and was ready to go to the post office and someone got in the way…

I keep telling you he misses his daddy... he wanted to be shipped along with the baked goods!

While I was working, the VP’s admin (MB) asked me to come to the hotel early.. she wanted me to accompany her to a couple of places. My boss got in just in time and he joined us. Our first stop was Stubb’s; MB wanted to select the menu and check out the space.

After that, we went to Kenishi to select that menu as well. After we dropped MB off at the hotel, my boss and I went to the boxing gym. He wanted to talk to the owner and finalize details. We also went for dinner at the restaurant across the street from the hotel.

Fish tacos w/ranchero beans and rice

After dinner, we got down to work… planned all the scenes that needed to be shot and thought of some ideas for the video.

This was the workstation in my room

We laid out the equipment on my bed & were testing out the lights

Once we were satisfied with everything, we packed up and called it a night.
