Work was crazy on Saturday, it felt like time flew by with everything that was going on. I was getting emails all day about our information of flights, what we needed, our agenda, etc. I had to stay after work late to get all my appointments fixed and moved around. I now had to work on Monday because we were flying out on Tuesday, spending the day on the show Weds. then traveling back that night. The producer sent me a email about a at home video we had to do. So of course I have no idea what I am supposed to do or how I am supposed to do it. After work I just relaxed as much as possible because I knew this week was going to be a roller coster. Sunday after church Justins dad, mom and sister came over as well as my cousin Reece, my sister and my friend Brandi to help with the video. It was quite funny because in the at home video we had a script and everything. All the takes that Reece recorded all had something funny in each one of them but they turned out to be a lot better than we thought! After the excitement of being recorded for a couple of hours Casey and I started on sending the video and photos of us to the show through email so they could have them before we got there. I made sure with my "stylist" Casey that the outfits I had picked out were going to be perfect for the show. Then we continued on with your Sunday relaxing and doing some things around the house.
Monday, I worked all day, ran some errands then headed to a friends restaurant for a re-grand opening with free food! I had 4 plates for my 4 baby boys and it sure was good! haha.
After dinner I headed home to rest because I knew I was going to be overwhelmed traveling the next two days. At about 12:30 the next day, our friend Brandi took Justin and I to the airport. The flight was about an hour and 45 minutes and wasn't as bad as we thought, Justin hates to fly. Everything was going so smooth and when we got to the baggage claim there was a man holding a sign with our names waiting with a car outside. We checked into our hotel, then decided we wanted to walk around a little and then grab some dinner. It was soooo yummy and it was nice to have a peaceful dinner with my husband, plus we were in NYC! The next day the chaos started. We had a car waiting for us the next morning to take us to the studio. They took us straight into our own private room where we hung out until they took us into hair and make-up. Yes, Justin and I both had to do hair and make-up, it was quite funny but Justin was a very good sport about it. After that we headed on set to start filming the show. The BET studio was actually under us and the music was totally thumping the whole place. Justin defiantly made the comment that he wanted to go be on 106 and Park. haha. During the recording we got to meet with Nate and then meet a couple who had quintuplets (thats 5 for those who may not be familiar). That was pretty awesome and after the show we really got to sit down and really talk to them about everything and even play and hold the babies. They were a amazing couple and so trustworthy with the babies by just handing them over to Justin and I. It was nice to meet people in person who knew exactly what Justin and I are going through. As the show went on we got some pretty amazing gifts. The Nate Show isn't redoing the whole nursery they are just sending us some things to get us started and to help with what Justin and I already have. They are providing us with the bedding that is absolutely amazing and we also get some amazing furniture from Pottery Barn. To get us started on clothes they are giving us some gift cards to Carter's and Oshgosh! Nate is also making a layout that will help us know exactly how to set up our room for our 4 baby boys. We now know first hand how much hard work it takes to make these shows run like they do! We are soo thankful to have been on the show and it was a truly amazing experience. We aren't sure when the show will air but we promise to let everyone know as soon as we find out!

After Justin and I got home safety, we spent some time at home then the rest of the week went on like normal. Work as very hectic and busy but thats always a good thing. We have a doctors appointment on Wed. and we are so excited to see what the doctor is going to say and to see how the boys are doing and growing. I will post some pictures tomorrow of my belly and the short but amazing trip we had to New York.
