Greetings!  Today’s post is on video, and is a part of two blog challenges.  Rx Fitness Lady is hosting a blog challenge this week, where today we have to make a blog commercial, and Being A Wordsmith ‘s blog challenge asks “What part of your life closely resembles a storyline in a reality TV show or soap opera?” 
Well, my life would definitely not make the cut for the latest reality show, and I don’t think I’m interesting enough for Genoa City, but check out the video after the jump.

What about you?  Can your life be a reality TV show?

    Nice to meet you Kennie. My husband is from Lake Charles. I know that’s people saying they live in Atlanta and then someone says, oh yeah – I have a friend in Savannah. LOL! You did a great job on your vlog. #MBC

      Hi Kenya! Thanks! Actually, being away from home, we tend to get excited whenever we hear that someone is from ANYWHERE in Louisiana. LOL! Thanks for stopping by!

    Great job! Definitely now following can’t wait to hear about your adventures. I am just starting to move into the decorating DIY piece on my blog. You and your daughter are two very pretty ladies!

      Hi Veronica – you share my mom’s name! 🙂 Thank you so much! My little one kept popping up whenever I started recording, so I figured why fight it, just let her say something. LOL

    Very awesome that you participated in the #MBC Kennie! Oh and I’m so backed up on responding to my own comments…HEY SOROR 😉 Seriously, you are the first sister friend I’ve made out here in these blog streets!

    I already told you I love Beignets and I have jumped right on in to your blog thanks to my girl Kim’s challenge! Very happy to connect! I’m going to lump some of Kim’s prompts together but I will have to see your Martha Stewart flo as I continue to get to know you girlie!

      Thanks Joi! I was a little hesitant about the commercial, but since I haven’t blogged long enough to have any interesting confessions, I said what the heck. It didn’t turn out as bad as I thought. LOL!
      I am loving the new connections being made from your’s and Kim’s challenges!

    Way to multi-task! You went ahead and killed two birds with one stone. You seem very at ease in front of the camera. Your blog sounds pretty similar to mine in that we just blog about life. I like it! #mbc

      Thank you! I was fretting over specific blogging categories initially, like am I a mommy blogger, lifestyle blogger, etc. Then I figured, I’ll just talk about what I like and if there’s a little of this, and a little of that, then so be it! LOL

    I love how conversational your commercial is! Good job, Kennie. Miss Petunia is so cute. I think she wanted some more air time. If you know about Genoa City, you must be a Y&R fan like me. Thank you for linking up and sharing.

      Thanks Kimberly! I haven’t watched Y&R in a while, but I still know all the characters. My mom calls me DAILY and fills me in on what’s going on. Sometimes she catches me off guard because she’ll call and start telling me all this juicy gossip, only for me to realize that she’s not talking about real people, she’s talking about what just happened on Y&R! LOL!

      Great – I should definitely pronounce, impressed with your web site. I had no trouble navigating through all the tabs as well as related information ended up being truly easy to do to access. I recently found what I hoped for before you know it in the least. Quite unusual. Is likely to appreciate it for those who add forums or something, website theme . a tones way for your customer to cocmtnimaue. Excellent task.

      Sounds to me as if Sony DRM software is actually a virus (as is Microsoft Windows and ActiveX, thank you very much), and needs to be treated as such. Damn corporate bobble-heads.

      Thanks Britton! I’m working on getting the home projects organized. My husband was giving me the side-eye when I informed him that he needed to get cracking on that DIY list. LOL

    Hi Kennie! I’m a day late visiting your commercial from #MBC, but I loved it. Watching it was like chatting with a friend and her adorable daughter. New Orleans is one of my favorite cities, and your blog name made me smile immediately. So nice to find your blog – looking forward to reading more!

    Hi Kennie.. your commercial was great. i was sold on your blog just based on the name “beignet mama”.. i LOVE New Orleans and have been almost every year for the past few years.. i have yet to have a beignet from Cafe du Monde. this past summer i did have a crawfish stuffed beignet from Restaurant Revolution.. it was amazing 🙂 Stopping from the #MBC challenge.. happy to find your blog. your daughter is super cute!
