{ Chicago w Babybel }

August 10, 2015

Before I officially begin work on the book ( see previous post! Hooray!), I had a few work trips already on the schedule. Wait- how in the heck am I going to add a 300 page book to this already-too-crazy schedule? I’ll stress about that later. Chicago time.
The first of three projects brought me to Chicago with Babybel. In all of my travels I’ve never actually been to Chicago so I was looking fwd to this one. Babybel was bringing me out to be a part of their Big Dreamers campaign- more specifically to surprise 8 yr old finalist and aspiring artist, Ella and her dad for a day full of fun.

I also had some fun travel partners on this trip. In addition To Ella and her dad, my husband came along for the ride this time. And I was meeting up with the other two ambassadors for the campaign: Julianne Hough and AJ McCarron. I was really looking fwd to joining these two because it’s always fun to take on projects with others in another profession. After meeting them and delivering specific and always-embarrassing messages from my parents to both ( “my dream is to dance w your brother”- from my mom, and “roll tide”- from my dad”) the project went off without a hitch. I spent a day teaching art-finalist, Ella,  some figure drawing and then we got into painting dresses for the cameras. We also inevitably got into an unforgettable glitter fight- b/c 8yrs olds. Then I joined Julianne, AJ and the other 3 finalists for a press conference and for photos.

After the project I got to see a little bit of Chicago which I LOVED. Can’t figure out just yet why everyone doesn’t live in Chicago, including myself. I really can’t wait to get back and see more of the city.

You’ll be able to see more of our fun from Chicago soon, AND you’ll be able to vote for your favorite dreamers soon via the BabybelUS facebook page. I’ll provide more info as we go. For now, hope you enjoy the photos above. A special thank you to Babybel for including me in this amazing project.
