Okay, so if you are a regular reader here you may know that my husband, boys and I were on a little show recently. It's called House Hunters International, heard of it? A producer from the show in London called me a while back, last summer actually, asking if our family would be interested in doing the show. My husband graciously gave me the go-ahead, although this is most certainly not his thing, and we got our chance at being stars!
I spent the months between filming, back in November, up until the show aired which was last Wednesday night, worrying. I am not normally a worrier, but I was this time. I was worried about how the show would portray me and my family, I was worried I would come across like a spoiled American. And while I might be in some aspects, I have most certainly learned to go with the flow. You have to with our lifestyle. So I thought I would do a follow up post with what I wore and a little insight into filming.

I chose this outfit because I wanted my hair to be something different but cute. However, I was unaware at the time of filming I would have to wear my hair like this for three days straight. And as you might have guessed, for a hair girl like me, that was kind of a bummer. But you just roll with it, I guess, and all the other chances I got I wore it down. If you want to see how I did this top-knot kinda look, you can head over to 30 Handmade Days. I did a post on it last Wednesday.
So some main questions people have been asking me are one: did you really pick that house and are we living in it. The answer is yes. That is our house. We are still currently living in it. We love it and although some things are hard (i.e. the hill) it is a great fit for us.
Two: Did you buy that house? The answer is no. We are renting that house and the team helps with furnishings & locating the things we need.

Three: How was filming everything? It was lovely. The people were nice and made us feel like pros although I am sure we didn't look like it. It was long days, but overall an amazing experience that I am so happy we did. It turned out lovely and I will be happy to have a dvd to remember this fun time in our lives.
Four: I liked the house with all the red! Why didn't you choose that one!! Well for one, it wasn't even for sell. The owners were there while filming! And for two it looked a lot larger on tv than it was in real life. And while I would have loved to live in the city, we needed more room for our crazy boys to run free!
That's about it! I would love to hear your take on everything if you saw the show. If you didn't I am sure it will be rerun all the time, and I'm not sure how excited I am about that...
Now off to finish packing up to head back to France. Wish me luck on this 14 hour flight and even longer travel day!
