Toasting to anybody that had to work BLACK FRIDAY!
One of my favorite football players Brett Favre football jersey was retired on Thanksgiving night. I remember when I did makeup for Brett he was with the Green Bay Packers. The photo shoot was done at his Dallas style home in Mississippi. We had a great time on set, definitely a fun guy. Luv his humor!
The family was missing home which is New Orleans so I decided to have fun with this year table setting. I had a box in the shed that had some back home goodies in it. So instead of doing a turkey, a ham or mini hens I choose crawfish. Some of my menu came from Louisiana Crawfish, Thank God to them. I luv ordering my crawfish from Louisiana Crawfish during the summer. To see the smiles on my family face was priceless because everything was what they asked for. I’m just thankful that I was able to give them a great day because last year during this time I was in the hospital due to complications with my lupus. I just remember cooking that morning and I started to feel weird, So I’m blessed to be here with my family, friends, and coworkers.
Kitchen is cleaned now it’s time to have a drink!
This morning I went in to do treatments on my lungs. I’ve been actually feeling better so once I can get my lungs healthy I’ll be almost back to normal. I guess getting that flu shot didn’t hurt because I’ve been exposed to sick people the last few days and nothing happen but a sore throat. Unfortunately that sore throat for one day set me back. My lungs are weaker than it was on my last visit so I really have to make sure I stay away from anyone that is sick. So hard to do when I work around people everyday. My Pulmonologists still has me on prednisone, seem like I’ll be on it next month as well. I hope I don’t get to 200lbs because I’m almost there. Never thought I would weigh that much but if it helps me to get through the day then I’ll take this nasty pill with a smile.
When I usually have to do a photo shoot it’s normally in New York but today I got a treat the Pepsi photo shoot is taking place in Norwalk, CT at Sono Studios
. Unfortunately, I can only show limited pics…sorry.
Nothing like working with a bestie, luv her Mel Paldino…she holds me down even when we are not working together.
