Yesterday was just like every other day. Woke up early, battled getting my son dressed, teeth brushed & off to school. Quick stop at the dentist, some random errands, pickup from school, lunch & attempting to address the nasty pile of laundry. I hate laundry!

Seriously? A tweet from some lady claiming to work at ABC World News with Diane Sawyer with an “egg” as her twitter profile picture. Great, I’ve got another “egg” following me & sending me crazy messages. Ok spam lady. 

Later, my phone rings

Long story short, she says to me at the end of the conversation, we would like to come to your house tomorrow and film for the day. Tomorrow as in like, 24 hours from now?

    Wow Jess, how awesome!! I am so happy for you guys and eager to see your story. I am SOOOOO glad you changed your name 🙂 and that you have such great style … if ABC asked to come over to my house tomorrow … I would die of embarrassment. My house is a wreck right now!
