To Denver And Back

We’re baaaaack and whooo-wee! what a whirlwind of a trip that was!

We pulled back into Prattville just after midnight on Friday night, and I had fun putting together this video full of snippets from the trip yesterday afternoon…

(I apologize for the occasional herky jerkiness- all we had with us was a Flip cam!)

Like I said- Total. Whirlwind! (True story- (sweet) Michelle literally introduced herself through Facebook the day before our trip. Gotta love that social media!)

And as for those meetings in Denver, well, I’m happy to report that they went (Tony the Tiger-style) grrrreat!, and we’re almost all set to film our pilot in September. Just gotta settle on a house, a design plan, and an outfit. Oh dear. That last one gives me hives. (Hi. I’m Layla and I need a wardrobe whisperer!) Ooh! And here’s something else I didn’t have a clue about: Our pilot will actually be episode #1 if the network decides to pick up a full seasons worth of shows. Say, wha?!? This silly rabbit thought it was just gonna be a practice run! Ha!

The creative folks responsible for creating our (potential) show were just as awesome and down-to-earth as can be, and they really made us feel comfortable about the whole (potential) ordeal. They said they really just want us to be ourselves and do what we do, and that they’d be more “fly on the wall-ish” than “all up in our face-ish”. Yesssss!

And we’re really looking forward to working with fellow bloggers, Facebook friends, and Twitter followers if this whole thing happens, too. Sounds like we could be spending several weeks in four different cities around the country, per season, if the show gets picked up. This is all new to us (and that’s a long time to be away from home!), so the thought of meeting up/working with familiar faces (and “voices”!) sounds really amazing/comforting!!

In the meantime, I better get crackin’ on on my Pinterest Challenge project. The deadline is tomorrow morning and I haven’t even started sticking, spraying or shooting it yet! (Hi. I’m Layla and I wait ’til the last minute. A lot.)

PS- Kev got some lovely photos of Ree’s lodge and Hyacinth’s living room to share at some point this week too!

    Awesome video! I love how you blended the radio song right into the audio track. Also, lovin the bonus Kevin jam session! I’ve re-listened three times already :)
    There’s just something about both of you, that as a viewer, I find very engaging, and I’m certain the network will see that too. Can’t wait to see your show!

    Thanks for sharing your trip….good luck with your pilot! My favorite part of your video was seeing and hearing Kevin play, just sitting by himself. Beautiful music.

    I just discovered your blog a few weeks ago and just love it! Did you stop at the Brass Armadillo in Des Moines, IA? If so you were in my town:) You guys have a great thing going on and I very much enjoy following your adventures! Keep up the good work.

    Loved your reflection on footwear and it made me chuckle. I am so excited at the possibility of you guys having a show. I visit your site all of the time for ideas and inspiration and when I need a smidgen of the beautiful in my day! Even though I only discovered you this year, I’m hooked. Please, please, please come to Boston if you’re successful! There are houses here that need your beautiful kind of help.
