How nice to have received the royal treatment. Glad to hear it was an enjoyable (although sounds like a bit of a "whirlwind") time, and that it sounds like you created awareness around people that hadn't yet had the chance to know about your work and that of the Preeclampsia Foundation.

Please keep us posted with any additional information.

I hope to finally meet you in person one day!

It was wonderful. They picked me up at the airport in a stretch limo! My first!! And took me to a really nice hotel in Santa Monica right on the beach (Marriott, I think) and in the morning I was first to get the makeup call. This adorable little girl (22?) named Dahlia did my make-up and I didn't look scary, which was nice. I sat for 45 minutes in this comfy chair while the producer (off camera) asked me lots of questions. I talked about whatever they asked me--some of it was pretty intense, other questions were more like--why are women different from men when it comes to giving (???) and such. When I was done a couple people in the room told me that they had been CRYING. I had no idea and the producer came up to me and said he had a Barbara Walters moments and I guess he got choked up too. I don't know how, but they are condensing a 45 minute interview into 2 minutes. We joked that they were going to change everything so it said--drink bicarbonate of soda and don't forget to feed the dolphins. :) Of course, everyone was absolutely wonderful and the Executive Producer and I chatted and he talked about possibly connecting us with someone who does specials on clearly that was exciting. I was even handed a water bottle with a straw so I wouldn't mess up my lipstick...very cool. :) It was a bit of a let down though when I got home and DH didn't bring me my water bottle with a straw--in fact, he didn't even park to pick me up but just swung by the curb and yelled jump in--I'm double-parked. :) Nothing like love to bring you back down to earth.

It was great. The only thing that would have made it better would have been seeing everyone. I hope to get back--it was just a beautiful day and I thought--hey--LA (well Santa Monica) is really nice!

Of course, if you have the money to live there, on the beach, I bet it is!

Take care,

I wish we could've have met up! When our original get together got cancelled, we decided to stay out of town a few days longer for that wedding. Sounds like they had you on a pretty tight schedule though! I hope all went well, can't wait to hear!

Update: I'm in Sunday night at the La Mierelle (?) Marriott if anyone would like to meet up in the evening. It looks like I am booked up all day Monday and leaving right when we're done, but sent details to Julie if anyone wants to connect with her and find out.

As of now they are flying me down at 9 AM, something about hair and makeup at 1:00, interview at 2:00-3:00 and then talking with their PR person and all done at 4:30. My flight (as of now) back to Seattle is at 7:30. I explained that that was a long day for me and that I could come down the night before or stay Monday night--will let you know if they go for that. Otherwise, I leave my house at 6:30 AM and don't get home until after midnight. I think maybe they realized my argument was compelling (for coming down Sunday night) when I mentioned that otherwise I would look like h***...It's L'Oreal, after all. :) Of course, didn't mention that looking like h*** wasn't all that uncommon for me these days...:) I'm not a pretty woman when I haven't had enough sleep...definitely not a morning person. Oh well.

I'd like to meet, too; I live in Los Angeles and, other than a mid-day commitment, it's my day off ;).

Hey guys, I got a call from the producer today and he said he decided NOT to tape the Tuesday morning event. I will see if they can allow me to stay overnight so we can still meet up. I AM in LA on Monday but even as of now--do not know when I arrive and when I leave. When I do--I will let you know. I do hope to see you all.
