Wellllll….it happened! We made our big tv debut on Wral!
I wanted to barf allllll day long on Friday…what did we say…how did we look…what pictures did they choose to use…how can we look thinner if the camera adds ten pounds!?!? Jenny called me around 2 and we decided…duh we should watch this together. So I brought some coffee and all my nerves over to her house at 5. We were both sweaty and soooo excited. Adorable Bill Leslie posted about the interview on his Facebook page and we just couldn’t wait!
That alone felt huge!!! So at 5:30, we turned the tv on to the news!!! Jenny’s daughter London was def not in love with this idea!!! She was jonzing for Peppa Pig…so we played some games to distract her!
We took some selfies to calm our nerves…bahahahaha!
Soooo many emotions; waiting is the living worst #anxiety…and then David Crabtree did the Good Things spoiler…
Ahhhhhh, this is really happening!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! And then it happened!
We both totally failed at capturing each other watching each other on tv!!!
We couldn’t have asked for a better story. We had no idea the angle they were going to take and to focus so completely on our amazing friendship was incredible. We sat on the couch holding hands and I found myself getting really chocked up. Sometimes bc we live it every single day, you can’t see someone else’s perspective of the situation. We have an AMAZING bond and we really love each other so much. It feels so nice that someone captured that and was able to articulate it so well. Bill Leslie, we are so grateful to you for this gift and opportunity!!! Once the initial shock of it wore off we watched it again and were relieved! We looked great, sounded smart, were very true to ourselves (I could have been a tad less intense but what’s new there winky face). The pictures that they chose…we loved! Everything went great!!!!! And the outpouring of support on social media and in real life has been so humbling!
First tv appearance…check!!!! Thanks to everyone who tuned in and reached out. And thanks again Melinda!!! The next morning at the gym a guy recognized me…he said…were you on the news!?!!!!
My life is complete!!!! And Jenny’s clients on Saturday could not get enough!!! You guys are the living best. Now…Ellen should be calling any day right!!?? What better way to celebrate the greatest meatball accomplishment than getting all gussied up for our Samuel Cole Salon Education Team Christmas Dinner (I never know when to capitalize and when not to…i’m certain its not right but it works!). We got ready together and then headed over to Cara’s to scoop her up on the way downtown!
We walked into Gravy…we were the last ones which for the three of us is COMPLETELY unheard of but like every street was closed off dt! Can I just say, I love this group. We are all educators at the salon and we have such an awesome relationship…and amazing bosses! Our table wasn’t ready so we packed in at the bar and annoyed everyone around us with a million pictures….love this little sammie cole fam!
After two inspiring speeches from our fearless leader Jack and Joelle….
some cocktails and some cheersing…some of us with water…
Our table was finally ready!!!
The food was fabulous…just ask Jack!!! Bahahahaha…
The drinks were lovely…
But the company was the best!!! The stories abounded…the laughter never quits…
To everyone that we work with on the education team, Alley, Cara, Katie, and Carolyn…we love you guys so much. Teaching is such a gift and we couldn’t ask for a more fun group. It is a joy and a pleasure. Tonight was sooooo fun!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! We are so lucky. Looooove y’all.
And to Jack and Joelle…thank you for the guidance, the love, patience,opportunites, the fierce conversations, the knowledge, the effortless leadership, the laughs and belief that we all had a teachers heart. #gratefuleveryday #sammiecoleforlife
We may have dabbled in a few desserts and risotto ball bites but we capped off the night with a few flights of stairs!!! #sorryiflashedyouguys Meatball nation is never far from our minds! Love you alllllllll….
