We shot in a local establishment, as well as at our house, and watched some professional cameramen work serious magic while they were being challenged by the crazy storm we had last week.Pin It
It was completely surreal to have a makeup artist there to make us up, as well as having to make numerous outfit changes. Thank gawd I have some awesome dresses to choose from, unlike Miss A, who was thrown into whatever was clean. Luckily she has good looks and her charm to distract viewers of her mismash sense of style and wild hair.
Our house was the cleanest it has ever been, and I felt emotional and proud when I'd hear from our guests how awesome our house is. Rockstar also felt emotional when he pulled out the fridge to discover more handymen specials and skeletal remains, but not emotional in the good way.
This week demos take place, and we thought it was best to relocate the crew, minus Bonham the Cat, during this first week of chaos. We were lucky to score a room at our friend's spectacular B&B, South in Milford, which is an old rural elementary school turned home/B&B. Our "room" is the size of your average 2 bedroom apartment in Toronto, and they are both kid and dog friendly.
After a couple more days of shooting this week, we will make the trip back to our house on Sunday, where the real chaos will ensue. 2 adults, 2 kids, 2 dogs, 1 cat, and 7 weeks of living in the deep pits of renovations. It could be worse. It could be us doing our own renos.
