Big Brother's Big Sister's "Match of the Month"

As you know Kylie and I have been friends for over 9 years now...and we've been selected to be BBBS's "match of the month" for August.  How fun is that?!  As part of this honor we were featured on a TV News story on WOWT Ch. 6 today.  (we'll also have an article and photo in the upcoming newsletter - that might be another post).

We were contemplating where to do the shoot (you know - to get some good b-roll)...but, it only seemed appropriate to have our interview take place at the news station as she just happened to be leaving for college in a few days, and just happens to be majoring in Broadcast Journalism!  She toured KETV with me a few years back, when I used to work there  :-)  But she has not been to WOWT yet.  So this was perfect!
I very much appreciate anchor, Jim Seidecki, for giving us a tour of the station.  He really took his time walking us all around and showing us the ins and outs.  I feel as though he made an extra effort to explain everything thoroughly, knowing this was an area of study that Kylie will be pursuing at ASU soon.

Such a fun morning!
I snagged a few screen-shots from the interview (so that a few images print to the blog book :-)
 video of me snapping a few pics with my iPhone cam. HA!
 it felt awkward being on THIS side of the camera...I'm used to being the interviewER not the intervieWEE.

 This girl's a natural!  She has such a crisp and clear sound to her voice.  I could tell that Mr. Seidlecki was quite impressed with her skills as well.  She was calm, cool, relaxed and read the news like a pro   :-)
 Had to pose for a quick pic behind the news desk. hehe
Such a fun time, glad we got to do this!

oh & the girls had a cameo in the story too  :-)
This pic was taken at her graduation party.

Kylie came over and spent the day with me and the girls a couple weeks ago.  We had a LOT of catching up to do, especially since she was about to leave for college. 
We ate a yummy lunch at El'Bee's.  Kylie's phone takes pretty good pics!
And, yes.  I allowed McKenzie to leave the house looking like this.  It was a "pick your battles" kind of day.  And quite frankly, I just didn't have the energy to fight over outfits or hair styles...
so.  I.  Didn't. 
She looks wonderful right??  :-)

  1. Congrats Sherri, that's a long time to be friends! I got a "Little Sister" about a year ago and have loved the experience. I hope we're able to stay in contact as long as you two have! -Nickie
